Also, what about the "cloud umbrella" theory? I have heard statements that the earth is receiving 20% less sunlight due to cloud conditions exacerbated by persistent contrails.

I looked through the archives of the WSJ and did not see anything, either.
The problem with that is that persistent cloud cover does not offset the effects of greenhouse warming, because persistent cloud cover does not necessarily result in a net decrease of temperature.
When the days are cloudy, UV rays are blocked, and fewer of them reach the ground. ButÖ. those same clouds at night block the IR on the Earth from radiating back out to space, so the days are cooler and the nights are warmer.
What cloud cover does is to lower the ďdiurnal temperature deltaĒ, which is engineering-ese for saying that the difference between the hottest and coldest part of the 24-hour period is not as great.
And, although cloud cover from persistent contrails are a possible threat to climate, the amount is quite a bit less thatn 20 percent; it is more like 2 percent by 2050, according to my esteemed colleague Dr. Pat Minnis. Pat and I have corresponded for about the past three or four years, and he tries to keep me in the loop regarding contrails, since he knows of my interest.

chemtrails ARE REAL!
to Mr. Chemtrails Debunker
if you have some blue skies for days, then on spray day you have hundreds of chemical trails that eventually (after a few hours) form a milky-white goo -- what would you call those?
millions of people have seen the chemtrails and most of them know by now that it is IMPOSSIBLE to produce contrails at the lower altitudes and air higher air temperature at what chemtrails appear.
Therefore --- the chemtrails MUST exist.
If you want to argue otherwise then you must be arguing against laws of physics!
Are you suggesting the crystals of ice can form at, let say 55 degrees Fahrenheit?
it is impossible!
Do some research and you will understand that you cannot 'debunk' something that it is provably real.
Still do not believe me? Well, you can see the chemtrail 'soup' after the spraying, at night with powerful spot light -- just shine it up there and look!
Sometimes, the days after spraying you will see the stuff falling down. THAT is what you BREATHE, my friend!
Let me put it this way; I would love more then anything that you, 'Mr. debunker' are correct with your theory and that I am wrong with my theory,
and I would gladly admit that you are right if you can PROVE that either I am making this stuff up or that I should have nothing to worry about because you have the proof
that chemtrails are harmless!. If you do so, as a token of my appreciation I will give you, say $ 1000, just because you have proven that I was worrying about nothing.
My sanity is definitely worth $1000.
So if you can convince me that some of the people who got sick after the spraying are loonies (or equivalent) and that I am wrong -- I would like to hear that.
So, for the starters, please explain about those pathogens that are found in the chemtrails,
please explain about mycoplasma-based illneses,
please explain about 3000 percent increase of upper respiratory diseases since the chemtrails spraying began,
please explain why contrails do not last for hours on the sky -- but chemtrails do,
please explain why contrails do not make people sick -- but chemtrails do,
please explain why contrails do not ever cover the whole sky -- but chemtrails do,
