Q: 1. How long have you been looking into this “chemtrail” issue?
A: Only afew months. After moving back to the area after living elsewhere, I noticed alot of these weird looking clouds. Never really noticed them before and started watching the skies. Then I saw the planes that were doing it, and landed online hitting google.
Q: 2. What is the extent of your meteorological qualifications, reading & knowledge?
A: I didnt go to school, nor work in such an area. Im a mere lay person, but have read more than afew reports and docs on this topic. I wouldnt dare call myself well researched, but I wouldnt call my knowledge lacking in the common sense and basic stuff.
Q: 3. What is the extent of your medical qualifications, reading & knowledge?
A: Alot of docs and nurses in the family, and nothing more than that. And they too question some of this stuff quietly.
I was in the service and saw my share of odd things, so I know theres some very weird things out there I just dont know about.
Thats why I post and ask questions and try to figure out whats what.

I am 51 years old. I still remember when the sky wasn't so gray and contrails were just that, they would disappear within minutes leaving no sign that there was anything there. It wasn't until the 1980's when I started seeing chem-trails.
Another thing is that when I was a kid (not too long ago, 80's) I used to spend quite a bit of time lying on my back looking into the sky at planes leaving the contrail behind. NEVER was itever longer than a couple inches (in retrospect) and NEVER did it last all day and form into clouds after...
In my reading into this, there are a few points to make.
These trails are called contrails. They are not smoke from the engines, they are formed when the water in jet exhaust (and there’s a lot of it, like car exhaust on a cold day) mixes with wet cold air, and condenses out as ice crystals. Contrails are actually a type of cirrus cloud. When the air is wet and cold enough the trails can stay around for a long time, and sometimes spread out.
Now there are two main reasons why some planes leave trails and some do not. One, the less common reason, is that different planes have different engines. Some engines need different conditions to leave contrails. Here, for example are an Airbus A340 (maiden flight: 1991) on the left, leaving contrails, and a Boeing 707 (maiden flight: 1957) not leaving contrails. Both are flying at 33,000 feet (part of a German test to study contrail formation), but the newer engines of the A340 produce more water vapor at a different temperature, and so make contrails.

My theory is that they are pumping sodium compounds, possibly salt water (sodium chloride) into the sodium layer.
Sodium layer refers to a layer within the Earth's mesosphere of unbound, non-ionized atoms of sodium. The altitude of this layer is usually located between 80–105 km (50–65 miles) and has a depth of about 5 km (3 miles).
