Where is it analysed and documented?
the only attempts I've seen to do so are in "What in the world are htey spraying" and Arizona Skywatch - both of which are obviously dishonest.
I'll explain it to you since you seem to have fallen for this rubbish.
The video on WITWATS shows them measuring sludge - which is effectively just dirt. and of course dirt contains a lot of aluminium - the crust of the
earth is about 8% aluminium, so even accounting for some areas being rich in it and some poor, figures of over 1% aluminium are not really
Arizona skywatch say they sampled the air by using HEPA filters. But of course HEPA filters catch dust and particles - most of which are, at ground
level, nothing more than dust blown up off the ground - so again theiy are sampling dirt! They then pretend to be shocked that their dirt is 3.9%
aluminium - see note about about how much aluminium is in dirt!
If ASW was being honest they would tell you how much air they filtered to get their sample, and how big their sample is. Eg if they filtered 1
million litres of air, and got 1 litre of dirt, and the dirt is 3.9% aluminium, then it would be fair to say that the air had 39 ppb (parts per
but they don't do that.
Then there's the Mt Shasta one too - that crops up in various places - again they sample sludge at the bottom of a pond and are surprised when it has
about as much aluminium as you'd expect. the other one that crops up from time to time is the guy who left a bowl out on his truck for a few weeks &
sampled it - yep - what is it that you get in a bowl you leave out? How about some good ol' wind blown dust & dirt!
Barium then you say. Do you know what the main sources for barium are in the atmosphere? How about the stuff that's been added to diesel fuel for
much of the last 100 years?
Barium's natural occurence is 0.0425% of the earths crust - or 425 parts per million (ppm). It also occurs naturally in seawater at 13 micro-grams
per litre - 13 ppm.
Oh but they add it to jet fuel?? well let's see - the stuff that everyone complains about is Stadis 450 -
its MSDS is here
- it is added to jet fuel at 2 ppm.....and at most 40% of it contains
barium - and that is in the form of complicated molecules, so the actual barium content is a lot lower than that - so at most 0.8ppm barium-containing
materials in jet fuel
a B747-400 ER has a capacity of about 240,000 litres of fuel - at 0.8ppm that means it is carrying a bit less than 0.2 litres of barium-containing
chemicals. It burns about 24,000 lbs per hour - about 11,000 litres - so it is spreading about 0.09 litres - 90 ml - 3 1/2 fluid ounces roughly - of
barium-containing material across roughly 500 miles of flight path in 1 hour.
And remember that barium is only part of that material.
the KSLA "investigation" found 68 micrograms per litre - sometimes misreported as 68 milligrams but let's ignore that little mistake on the part of
the hoax supporters - in a jar left out for a few weeks, in Arkansas. Arkansas is one of the areas of the USA that was the main producer of
before 1970 - yep - they found slightly high
levels in water in a state that is rich in barium. Amazing!
And we are supposed to believe that elevated levels of barium at ground level are actually caused by aircraft at 30,000+ feet, despite the levels
actually being measured being well within the expected levels for dirt that is blowing around you all the time?
excuse me while I'm underwhelmed.
It's no wonder you dont' like science - since your "evidence" is so easily shown as rubbish. I bet you don't like maths now either
