You are preaching to the choir of debunkers. We know there is chemicals all over. It's when people think because the soil or water contains
of "chemtrails" but have not a single clue that those same chemicals are in the ground anyway that the debunkers come in.
The usual suspects mentioned are aluminum and barium. Al is the most common metallic mineral in the ground. Ba is the 14th most abundant element.
They are both everywhere, and both are used in industry, construction, agriculture, transportation...all of which will add both into the environment.
But no way can it be traced back to visible plumes behind planes. To make such an extraordinary claim, extraordinary evidence needs to be produced.
So far, any attempt at evidence has been far from extraordinary; most tests are sloppily sampled, misinterpreted, or overstated.
When an average human body contains 300 ppb by weight of Ba, a reading of anything less is not exactly toxic. One particular test often produced as
evidence of "chemtrails" is both misstated and misinterpreted. The report shows the barium to be 68.8 ppb/L. Less than a human body, less than
what the EPA considers to be bad, and way below anything toxic. But most believers will only believe things they read on "chemtrail" sites, without
researching on their own. And these same "chemtrail" sites continue to use the story ignoring the errors. That is dishonest.
That is what makes debunkers concerned. Bad information should be corrected.
