The link you provided seems to provide some good information, until you dig a little deeper...
Although the “trade secret” ingredients are well protected by the manufacturer, a recent study contracted by the EPA  and other sources
strongly imply that these ingredients are salts of barium and/or calcium.
The article implies that barium salts are in the antistatic agent Stadis 450, and gives a
. The source makes no mention of
the use of barium salts in Stadis 450, as it is merely talking about various forms of chemicals in the Dinonylnaphthalene family. The article
provides the safety data sheet
for Stadis 450, which shows that
Dinonylnaphthalene sulfonic acid (CAS No: 25322-17-2) is an additive. This is not the same as the barium salt (CAS No: 25619-56-1). The process of
making the barium salt requires introducing barium (funny that) in a reaction process, an example of which can be found
Therefore, there is no evidence whatsoever that barium is in Stadis 450.
It's understandable that you have simply accepted this articles information as the truth, as it seems to be giving the relevant information. But the
sad thing, is that it isn't. They've misled you, much like most chemtrail sites. This is why it pays to verify sources before touting them as
Moving on to another part of the article.
If one phenomenon gives away the presence of metals in the aerosol, it would be the large number of high altitude rainbows produced by contrail
aerosol. Virtually unheard of prior to 1990, bright rainbows, sometimes referred to as “circumhorizon arcs” or more commonly, “chembows,” can
be observed regularly wherever jet aircraft fly.
The article uses one of it's own pages as a source for these so called "chembows", "What are
. Unfortunately, they are misleading people again. They provide this photo as 'evidence' of a chembow.
What should be obvious to most people, is that the "chembow" in the picture is coming from a natural
cirrus cloud, despite the caption
claiming that it's from the "chemtrail". This is yet another example of the site being disingenuous. What the photo actually shows, is an example
of Iridescent Clouds
When parts of clouds are thin and have similar size droplets, diffraction can make them shine with colours like a corona. In fact, the colours are
essentially corona fragments. The effect is called cloud iridescence or irisation, terms derived from Iris the Greek personification of the
Iridescence is seen mostly when part of a cloud is forming because then all the droplets have a similar history and consequently have a similar
size. Sometimes iridescence can be seen far from the sun but is most frequent near to it.
An important part to note is the 'cloud forming' part, as this is what is occurring when a contrail is produced. Fresh contrails will have create
similar size water droplets which freeze, creating a good environment for the rainbow effect to be seen. This explains why it's the water
causing the effect, not some made up concoction of chemicals. Here are some examples of iridescence, with the first one from natural cloud, and the
rest from aerodynamic contrails (which aren't even caused by the exhaust).
I'm sorry to be so blunt, but you have been duped. That is what chemtrail sites do. It pays to keep an open mind and research claims fully before
jumping to conclusions.
PS. I see I have been beaten to the punch by others, but I think I've provided some relevant inforamtion (gathering it took far too long
