Can anyone explain why the US Airforce published a manual on chemtrails?
Simple. They DIDN'T!!
This has been brought up, here on ATS, before. A year or so ago.
You are referring to a chemistry text used at the USAF Academy, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It has the title on the cover page only. That was
playfully titled, with the word "chemtrail" in it. Has nothing
at all to do with what has turned into this "chemtrail" hoax, of
Probably (IIRC) was just to note that jet engine exhaust has pollutants in it....as do ALL petroleum burning engines.
Ah...here's a link:
Shows the cover, and the index. LOOK at the index. See it? A lab course (worth "75 pts" towards the full curriculum).
LOOK at the other listings, in the index. "Acid Rain". Remember the controversy, back in the late 1980s? It is about the fact of burning of fossil
fuels, and the pollution resulting in what became known, in the popular media, as "acid rain". Rather an exaggeration, really....just meant that the
PH levels of the rain water was slightly skewed from alkaline towards acidic. A valid concern, for crops and other plants. AND, led to many EPA
rules being adopted, to curb auto, and coal-burning power plants emissions, for instance. Led directly to the removal of "lead" from automobile
gasoline. Smokestack "scrubbers" on power plants, etc....
Anyway, that is part of what they were taking a *Chemistry* class for, among other things. It's a very complicated, and difficult subject.
Especially, "organic" chemistry. (Ask you doctor....he/she will likely tell you it was one of the hardest parts of Med School.....).....
