I have been avidly reading the website Contrail Science
and while reading a article there titled
"A brief history of "Chemtrails""
I have noticed one thing about the dates that
appear to refernece the earliest chemtrail theory.
Most of them shortly appear after this report by the government was released.

Cold War Chemical Tests Over American Cities
Were Far Below Dangerous Levels
WASHINGTON -- A series of secret tests conducted by the U.S. Army in the 1950s and 1960s did not expose residents of the United States and Canada to
chemical levels considered harmful, according to a new report* from a committee of the National Research Council.
The U.S. Army released the chemical compound zinc cadmium sulfide from airplanes, rooftops, and moving vehicles in 33 urban and rural areas as part of
a Cold War program to test the way biological weapons might disperse under different conditions. Zinc cadmium sulfide, a fine fluorescent powder, was
chosen because its particles are similar in size to germs used in biological warfare, and because its fluorescence under ultraviolet light made it
easy to trace. It is not a biological weapon, nor was it thought at the time to be toxic. But residents in affected cities -- including Minneapolis;
St. Louis; Winnipeg, Manitoba; Corpus Christi, Texas; and Fort Wayne, Ind. -- became concerned about possible health effects after details of the
tests became widely known in the 1990s.
This piece of info claims the origions could be older but I'm not sure on what date is accurate. I'm hoping Uncinus will be able to clarify it for
It’s also very clear from the article that individual suspicions regarding contrails did not suddenly start in 1999. In fact the article dates
it back to 1977 (although later version of this article change it to 1997).
1977 or 1997?
It does seem to be quite the coincidence that the chemtrail theory flared up within one year of the report from National Research Council which
studied the possibility of residents being exposed to harmful levels of chemicals.
Could that report be the catalyst for this entire theory?
