and me for quoting him with intent to deceive.
You can't-- and I won't try anymore-- reason with people like that.
The fact remains that Gaul poisoned the well by proclaiming in advance that any evidence showing chemtrail theory to be factual must be due to deliberate, premeditated falsification. No matter what the study may find, Gaul has already written it off as a fabrication; he did NOT say it would be merely "mistaken".
The problem is not getting evidence, it's getting debunkers to define what they'd even accept as evidence.

You are omitting something that is relevant and shows you to be wrong - it's simple really - your original post is only a partial quote and you refused to acknowledge that part of my post which shows it to be a lie.
If this is what you believe, then claiming you'd admit to being wrong is a mere attempt to appear open-minded in spite of it.
Average residence time (time spent) in aquifer by a water molecule: about 40 years
The presence of barium in sea water, river water, and
well-water has been documented, and it is also found in
sediments and natural waters in contact with sedimentary
rocks. Barium is present in almost all surface waters at
concentrations up to 15,000 µg/litre and contributes to
the hardness of the water. The barium concentration in
wells depends on the content of leachable barium in rocks.
Drinking-water contains 10-1000 µg/litre, although water
in certain regions of the USA has been shown to have con-
centrations in excess of 10,000 µg/litre. Municipal water
supplies depend upon the quality of surface and ground
water and, depending on the hardness, contain a wide range
of barium concentration. Studies from USA show levels in
drinking-water ranging from 1-20 µg/litre. Based on this
information and assuming a consumption rate of 2 litres
per day, the daily intake would be 2-40 µg barium.

first quote is from a public heath assessment released July 8 2010 by EPA facility id mon00070523.
Because the concentrations of barium detected in 3 private drinking wells exceeds its mcl of 2000ppb with a max of 2230 ppb the EPA provided the residents with bottled water.
so i take from that the USA EPA limit is 2000ppb
conversion between ppb and ppm:
1 ppm = 1000 ppb
1 ppb = 1/1000 ppm
new dutch intervention levels for barium 625ppm
new dutch intervention levels for barium corrected to UK standards 423ppm
Barium is ubiquitous in soils, being found at concen-
trations ranging from 100-3000 µg/g (Schroeder, 1970;
Robinson et al., 1950). Brooks (1978) estimated an average
soil concentration of 500 mg/kg. Due to its abundance in
soils, barium may be present in the air in areas with high
natural dust levels.
