I am not sure how many times Chemtrails have been discused in main stream media. But I do know that in the June 2010 issue of Hustler magazine will feature a 3 page article on it.

Now I know Hustler is not the bastion for hard hitting news peices, but its a start.

I gave it the benifit of the doubt when I was reading it and to my surprise it had a wealth of information in it.

So with out further adue here is the article in its entirety:

It might seem a stretch to connect a crawling sensation over and under the skin—painful, itching persistent sores that discharge fibers of unknown composition—with aircraft exhaust and man-made clouds. However, people who experience these symptoms after spending time outdoors watching long, thin cloud structures have begun making that connection.

The above symptoms are attributed to Morgellons Disease, a recently identified and still controversial ailment attributed by many to toxic substances in “chemtrails,” released into the atmosphere from aircraft. According to numerous Internet sites, Morgellons sufferers may include Joni Mitchell and Amy Winehouse.

True aircraft contrails are the wispy, fleeting clouds of water vapor and ice crystals made in the sky by jet engines. Contrails usually disappear in minutes, though their extraordinary proliferation alone, according to computer models, makes them suspect contributors to global warming. Visually, chemtrails and contrails are much alike—long cloud lines in the sky appearing behind jet planes.

However, upon closer examination, chemtrails last much longer—instead of minutes, they can take hours to dissipate. Unlike normal contrails, chemtrails often appear to grow and spread outward. This apparent difference derives from the fact that chemtrails, unlike contrails, may contain any number of dangerous particles, including heavy metals, biological agents and chemicals and polymers of unknown origin.

What intentions may lie behind the dispersal of these substances is largely a matter of speculation, since the government rarely admits to the existence of chemtrails, much less discloses their composition.

Whether chemtrails cause Morgellons or not, growing numbers of people find them sinister. What, they want to know, are these things made of? And why are they created?

Since such questions remain unanswered, the door is wide open to conjecture.


Theories concerning the purpose of chemtrails range across a very wide spectrum: covert efforts to test new weapons and new communications systems, climate and weather control (with military implications), radar-blocking and/or radar-enhancement experiments, population behavior manipulation, even dissemination techniques for mass inoculations or the delivery of bio and chemical weapons agents.

Some believe that chemtrails might be part of a classified operation to block sunlight and head off global warming.

Jerry E. Smith, author of books Weather Warfare: The Military’s Plan to Draft Mother Nature and HAARP: The Ultimate Weapon of the Conspiracy, raises that prospect. He believes the ability to manipulate weather is much farther along than mainstream scientists admit, and the ability to influence hurricanes mightalready exist.

Contrail/chemtrail proliferation has attracted the attention of numerous observers, including astronauts startled by their visibility from space, radiating out from major cities like the spokes of a wheel. NASA even conducted chemtrail and contrail impact studies on climate by enlisting civilian astronomers throughout the country to record what they saw in the sky.

More recently, viewers have reported seeing chemtrails on their TV screens—as they’re watching a favorite crime show or even, in one case, an ad for Kool-Aid. NBC, the History and Discovery channels have all done cautious reports on chemtrails largely because of the growing concern over their effects on public health and the environment. None of these reports, now available
online, offered definitive answers.

Journalist William Thomas ( is a pioneer in examining and writing about chemtrails. The first chapter of his book Chemtrails Confirmed describes a Maine couple observing 30 jets as they released thick clouds into the cold winter atmosphere. Their efforts to track down information about what they saw were thwarted. Their sighting is consistent with other reports, as are the results of the couple’s follow-up investigation.

Though the precise function of chemtrails remains a mystery, there is a long, well-documented history of governments using aircraft to spread poisonous substances. Agent Orange, a highly toxic carcinogen used as a defoliant in Vietnam, is now recognized to have caused large numbers of cancers and early deaths in Vietnam War veterans. Similar chemical agents have been and may still be used against coc aine growers in South America.

Is it possible that the emergence of Morgellons is the result of weapons testing or environment-alteration experiments gone awry? The most extreme theories attribute Morgellons outbreaks to government attempts at population control through biological and nanotechnology implants. Images of the suspected technology components have appeared on the Web.

An online article, “Is Morgellons Disease Caused by Chemical Spraying,” ( , includes visuals comparing Morgellons-associated fibers to those found in chemtrails. While direct evidence connecting Morgellens to chemtrails is not strong, there is ample correlation between high blood pressure, coughs, sore throats and other respiratory difficulties and the prevalence of chemtrails.

That is especially true in areas where 40 to 60 large planes a day have been recorded spreading chemtrails and creating man-made clouds. (Thomas’s Web site contains a long list of such areas. Hot spots include Los Angeles and Las Vegas.) Samples of rainwater in California reveal unusual concentrations of barium and aluminum compounds and heavy metals, any of which could harm a respiratory system.


Powder-like metallic materials expelled from aircraft have long been part of the military’s efforts to wage war. In Vietnam, in addition to the use of Agent Orange, American commanders also sought to increase rainfall over the Ho Chi Minh Trail (Operation Popeye), hoping excessively muddy and difficult conditions would slow the transportation of troops and supplies.

The effort failed because the North Vietnamese slogged through the muck on bicycles. Had their forces depended more on mechanized technology, the tactic might have worked. Some people believe the intensity of Hurricane Katrina was the result of a similar experiment. A 1952 flood in Lynmouth, England, that killed 34 was attributed by many to weathercontrol activity. In 2001 a BBC radio documentary suggested the flood was connected to Project Cumulus, a government weather-modification project employing cloud-seeding. The report referenced rumors of missing or destroyed documents related to the operation.

Recently, German TV aired a program alleging military cloud-seeding with fine dust metal and plastic particles for radar suppression. “We can state with a 97% certainty that we have on our hands chemical trails [chemtrails] composed of fine dust-containing polymers and metals, used to disrupt radar signals,” the report said.

The reporters were astonished at how much territory was covered by these exercises, which also altered the weather, despite the fact that climate manipulation is illegal in Germany.


An interesting new concern related to chemtrails is their suspected use as part of the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP). The public face of HAARP is that of a military research project headquartered in Alaska that was initially designed to bombard the ionosphere with high-frequency particles for scientific purposes. For many, however, the HAARP project seems to have had defense and weapons implications from the beginning.

According to one HAARP-focused Web site——HAARP’s patent calls for inserting large amounts of barium into the upper atmosphere.

It is guesswork, of course, but incidents where large numbers of chemtrails are identified might well be part of HAARP operations, since part of the program is believed to involve bouncing signals off the ionosphere to enhance communication capabilities.

An introduction to HAARP can be found at in a summary of The Military’s Pandora’s Box by Dr. Nick Begich and Jeane Manning, also coauthors of Angels Don’t Play This HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology.

In a literally and figuratively chilling quote, Begich and Manning assert that “weather modification is possible by, for example, altering upper atmosphere wind patterns by constructing one or more plumes of atmospheric particles which will act as a lens or focusing device. Molecular modifications of the atmosphere can take place so that positive environmental effects can be achieved. Besides actually changing the molecular composition of an atmospheric region, a particular molecule or molecules can be chosen for increased presence. For example, ozone, nitrogen, etc., concentrations in the atmosphere could be artificially increased.”

If we have learned anything from the experienceof past government experiments affecting civilian populations, it should be that public officials will not inform the public of what they are doing and why.

We will be left on our own to discover what is dangerous and what is not. But there is simply no way that spraying barium, along with other metals and polymers in fine powdered form, can be good for us.

We should also know better by now than to blindly trust the competence of the military-industrial
complex. While they may believe their experiments in the atmosphere are harmless, they have a poor record of preventing unforeseen consequences.
