Are you saying you didn't expect people to challenge you with scientific facts about contrails?
BOTTOM LINE: Every single cloud in the sky within my sight, was created by jet exhaust, I DON'T LIKE IT ONE BIT, and seems completely bizarre
and wrong to me....
Well, to be clear on the subject, the contrail lines are not "all" jet exhaust -- or at least contrails are NOT totally the by-product of burnt
aviation fuel. Most of the visible stuff in a contrail is water molecules, and much of that water is ambient (already in the air)...
It is true that some of that water comes directly from the burning of hydrocarbon fuel (the hydrogen in the fuel combining with oxygen in that air to
, much of that visible contrail is made up of water molecules that were already present in the air prior to the plane
flying through it. The jet engines simply caused these pre-existing water molecules to condense.
