I was shocked to watch a new episode of "Life After People: Sky's the limit" on History channel and they mentioned contrails. They acknowledge they
exist, which was exciting that a channel such as the History channel would mention it. Unfortunately, since it is a fairly new episode it can not be
watched on youtube yet and I can't upload it. Next time your channel surfing stop on that episode.
They had said that with the absence of contrails the earth would cool down since the layers of contrails keeps the earth 2 degree cooler during the
day and 1 degree cooler at night. Hmmm....I think the history channel may have unknowingly admitted that air transportation is responsible for global
Flagstaff's explaination for contrails
Although the website above doesn't mention directly what effects contrails has on the environment, it is pretty clear what they are stating.
Contrails can turn to cirrus clouds which help to reflect sunlight and keep heat in. There is no statements stating that because of this effect it is
resulting to global warming.
I think the conclusion of what these contrails are is pretty understandable and reasonable. Since these contrails are creating cirrus clouds, the
result is man made clouds left behind by wealthy airline owners and government planes, leaving the earth to heat up by 2 degrees. And anyone who paid
attention in earth science knows that 2 degrees is enough to melt ice caps and alter the earth eventually.
Interested to see if anyone will concur or will deny the possibility that contrails are man made clouds.
