You don't need to live near a major airport to get contrail-producing planes overhead.
In fact, planes taking off from a local airport would not
produce contrails over your head. Contrails are produced higher up in the
atmosphere -- usually around 30,000 to 37,000 feet up (although they could be produced at 25,000 feet and above). The contrails you see over your
head could be from planes originating at an airport 100 miles away, or even thousands of miles away.
I don't know where you live, but in the U.S., there are major air routes above almost the entire country -- even the rural areas.
I'm also not rebutting the fact that air traffic could be causing more clouds. In fact, it has been a known fact for decades that normal CONtrails
produced by normal airline traffic are creating cloudier days. I grew up near a rural are in the 1970s and I remember the farm reports on TV
lamenting the growth of the airline travel industry, because the farmers knew that the contrails can spread out into clouds (and farmers usually like
So, yeah, I believe that today more than ever, there are more clouds being created by jets. However, these clouds created by contrails are NOT being
produced for the sole purpose of creating cloudier days -- i.e., it is not an intentional plan. Cirrus clouds from contrails are an unfortunate
side-effect of normal air travel -- and the proliferation and expansion of commercial airline travel in the world over the past several decades would
of course have the effect of producing more contrails, hence more clouds.
Ignoring the idea that global temperatures seem to be increasing rather than (as you say) decreasing, lets stipulate for the sake of this post that
your local temperatures actually ARE decreasing. Can you please give me some evidence that this is because of CHEMtrails?...
...Even if I admit that I believe that high-altitude fligt could cause excess cloud cover, and thus potentially lower local temperatures, can you
please give me the evidence that these extra clouds and lower temperatures are because of CHEMtrails rather than CONtrails?
