I am happy to see that you think the report offered by C-JEAN
is such a solid 'evidence' of "chemtrails".
It is, in fact, merely a great confirmation of CONTRAILS!
Note, please, in this 'study' performed nearly a decade ago, that they accurately recognize, and describe, contrails (when their observations
weren't obstructed by weather conditions that limited their visibility, such as overcast days).
They extensively monitored, and recorded, as much regularly scheduled commercial high altitude jet traffic that they could get information about.
HOWEVER, they used a web program known as "Flight Explorer" to collect their air traffic data. "Flight Explorer" is a proprietary program,
catering in the realm where it was accessed in this "study", to the casual layman wishing to track commercial airline flights. The program uses a
combination of, in part, AIRINC and ACARS information, from the various airline, and in some cases, FAA sources, that compile all of that data into a
searchable "real-time" database.
"Flight Explorer" does not include OTHER flights, including private business jets, nor does it include Military operations.
"Flight Aware" (Google 'FlightTracker', takes you there...) is a far better source for ALL FAA recorded IFR flights ('IFR' is an acronym for
'Instrument Flight Rules', and in US Airspace, ALL flights above 18,000 feet -- FL180 -- are required to be in 'positive control' on IFR flight
plans, INCLUDING Military flights, when they operate outside of Military-controlled exclusionary airspace sectors).
SO....the problem with this study that is championed by C-JEAN
repeatedly is, when it tries to show "suspicious"
activity, it A) doesn't have ALL the possible private jet traffic information, and B) doesn't include possible Military Ops, either. Air Force
tankers re-fuel, in regualr airspace...I know, because on numerous occasions, while flying normal passenger jets, I have been advised of traffic, as
we fly along (this is a typical ATC advisory, to alert pilots of other air traffic in their vicinity) and usually, the controller thinks it's fun to
give us a heads up, so we can see it in action! It's not secret (if it was secret, they'd do it somewhere else).
Despite all of the factual information I try to provide, consider this:
(And look for the illogic...)
When you read all of those "chemtrail" sites, they try to infer that it's happening EVERYWHERE!!!! Yet, even in the 'study' done by what
linked, it seems to be the exception
, rather than the norm
Yet, the "chemtrail" Chicken Littles of the Interwebs wish you to think that they ARE EVERYWHERE!!!!
They cannot have it both ways.....
"Chemtrails", their proponents, and the hysteria surrounding this non-existent "threat", are serving to diminish the understanding of actual
science, and instead seem to be attempting to fling us back to an era when Humans dismissed science, or hadn't learned science yet, or just found it
simpler to believe in some supernatural explanation, rather than actually examining the basis of their misconceptions in the first place.
