but just what the hell are the chemtrails suppose to be doin to us?
and shouldnt all the old people be dead by now?
you guys are sure there sprayin us lol but none of you have any idea why lololololololol
That's the game isn't it?
So long as the plot can't be traced back to a defining series of objectives and completed stages, none of us should really say anything about these
jet trails. I'll build a case for something to whine about then.
Specific fuel consumption
According to the DOT's research, U.S. major airline carriers averaged 64 mpg in 2009 (miles per gallon for airplanes is calculated by how far one
seat, regardless of whether it is occupied or not, can travel on one gallon of fuel).
A plane like a Boeing 747 uses approximately 1 gallon of fuel (about 4 liters) every second. Over the course of a 10-hour flight, it might burn
36,000 gallons (150,000 liters). According to Boeing's Web site, the 747 burns approximately 5 gallons of fuel per mile (12 liters per kilometer).
This sounds like a tremendously poor miles-per-gallon rating! But consider that a 747 can carry as many as 568 people. Let's call it 500 people to
take into account the fact that not all seats on most flights are occupied. A 747 is transporting 500 people 1 mile using 5 gallons of fuel. That
means the plane is burning 0.01 gallons per person per mile. In other words, the plane is getting 100 miles per gallon per person! The typical car
gets about 25 miles per gallon, so the 747 is much better than a car carrying one person, and compares favorably even if there are four people in the
car. Not bad when you consider that the 747 is flying at 550 miles per hour (900 km/h)!
So, a car travelling 100 mph will burn (approx.) 4 gallons an hour at the given 25 miles per gallon, or 40 gallons over the ten hour period.
For the sake of a similar scale, the car needs 5 1/2 hours of travel to match the distance covered by the 747 travelling at 550 mph. (It would need to
burn 220 gallons to cover the same distance ... anyway ... ).
36,000 / 40 = The same fuel used as 900 cars. Using the earlier figure of 28,000 commercial flights per day in the US (mentioned earlier this thread),
that's the same fuel as 25,200,000 cars @ 25 Mpg. How many are cars in the US?
Total number of vehicles
According to the US Bureau of Transportation Statistics for 2009 there are 254,212,610 registered passenger vehicles. Of these, 193,979,654 were
classified as "Light duty vehicle, short wheel base, while another 40,488,025 were listed as "Light duty vehicle, long wheel base." Yet another
8,356,097 were classified as vehicles with 2 axles and 6 tires and 2,617,118 were classified as "Truck, combination." There were approximately
7,929,724 motorcycles in the US in 2009.
I conclude through these rough statistics that commercial air flight in the US accounts for approximately the same amount of exhaust pollution as ten
percent of passenger vehicles.
That's a lot of air pollution! What kind of fuel are they using now, and how much of what chemicals are entering our atmosphere? Heavy metals concern
me the most. Chronic foot problems from metals sinking in our bodies, aluminum on the brain, lead toxins, sulphur pollution, and who knows what else
are coating the lands with wide-range dissipation.
