I thought this thread involved the issue of whether or not chemtrails were real, or just the byproduct of normal jet-fuel combustion. If I was mistaken, I apologize. If you are saying that, like other fossil-fuel combustion (i.e. cars and factories), chemtrails are just the product of the same process (combustion), you are incorrect. Chemtrails are produced by the deliberate spraying and expulsion of chemicals, not related to the combustion and propulsion of the aircraft spraying them. It is a separate process employed to modify weather and possibly other purposes. The claim that chemtrails are merely a byproduct of jet-fuel combustion is just factually incorrect.
Chemtrails are real; they are not a hoax based on misidentification of normal contrails.
Contrails are the byproduct of jet-fuel combustion, and they dissipate rapidly due to the high moisture content; they do not linger in the skies in discernible patterns for hours after the plane has flown by. This is not a secret and it's not news. Again, end of conspiracy theory.
If contrails persist for a long enough period of time, say on the order of an hour or more, they can spread out across the sky due to the prevailing winds at the level at which they formed. The two figures below show how contrails generated on this particular day spread out fairly quickly due to the stronger jet stream of air aloft. Persistence of contrails is neither an indication that they contain some kind of chemical, nor that it is some kind of spray. As a matter of fact, sailors have known for some time to look specifically at the patterns and persistence of jet contrails for weather forecasting. On days where the contrails disappear quickly or don't even form, they can expect continuing good weather, while on days where they persist, a change in the weather pattern may be expected.

Hello from upstate NY, near beautiful Lake George, where I have been watching the skies regularly for some time and can verify that what your son is trying to convince you of is real,
