Contrails have been around for a very long time.
Yeah...and I've been flying airplanes for a LONG time. I happen to know a few things about contrails, aviation and meteorology.
The controversy over chemtrails, on the other hand, has not.
And, do you know why? (It's called the "Internet"....and a few numbskulls who went off half-cocked, and their misinformation and total lack of
science education got spread around by OTHERS with similar handicaps of rational thinking).
There is yet ONE MORE aspect to this timing as well.....two-pronged: The increase in the numbers of airplanes and flights AND, same time, a change in
engine technology that tended to make contrails MORE persistent and :fluffier: looking, as well.
The HIGH-bypass turbofan engine. (Look it up).
While I'm sure your credentials and qualifications as pertains to the subject are top notch....
Yes, in fact...they are. As I noted up above. Does 23+ years flying airliners count at all? Along with many years in previous flying experiences.
More of your ramblings about perceptions and "truths" would be more useful if applied to finding actual EVIDENCE to support these "chemtrail"
claims...as has been suggested numerous times.
IF any such activity were being undertaken on such a massive scale, as claimed.....it would NOT be "hidden"....the activities of providing the
materials...manufacturing them, transporting to airports for "loading" and the servicing of the airplanes...a great deal of infrastructure would be
THEN, there is the problem of the airplanes specifically "configured" (per "chemtrailers" claims)....AND the pilots. We're talking a lot of
manpower, and man-hours...along with the normal Human routines of eating and sleeping....required rest rules would still apply, as well as duty time
limits. This is true in civilian flying, as well as in the military.
Finally, these fanciful "chemtrail" claims indicate a terrible ignorance on the part of the believers....about airplanes, and operational concerns
(such as weights, fuel/endurance requirements, balance (CG), etc).
When pressed, the "chemtrail" believers hand-wave it away......they seem ot have nothing but "magical" thinking. Speaking of your attempt to
impugn MY logic.......I happen to know more about the complexities that would be involved, to know why it is NOT plausible, as described in
Of course, the biggest lack of logic and reason and critical thinking? The altitudes
of the so-called "chemtrail release" and
"spray". In the regions were large jets typically cruise.....above 25,000 feet up to (rarely) 42,000 feet. MOST are in the 30,000 to 39,000
range, typically in the United States.
Stuff "sprayed" up that high is NOT going to "fall" back down very quickly....if at all. AND, is generally affected by the prevalent high winds,
often, at those altitudes.
As for clouds (and contrails, which ARE a type of cloud)....people just don't realize how they behave...because they move so slowly, to Human
perception. SO, time-lapse photography is useful for illustration:
See any clouds "drop down" to the ground, during that brief clip???
Nature....and clouds....in action. Sometimes the contrails that are formed as a direct result of our airplane technology will contribute....other
times, Mother Nature is perfectly capable of making her own.....
