Anyway, you have made a believer... or maybe an unbeliever in this case, out of me. However, that being said I still like to keep an open mind; So, to me, the fact that it is even remotely possible that they may be spraying something,
Now, while the subject is still contrail oriented, I have another question. Why don't military jets seem to leave contrails? Or at least, they don't seem to leave persistent contrails. I realise that they probably don't WANT to leave contrails because that would make them easier to spot, but I see many military jets frequently over my area since I'm in-between a military base and their bombing range. I tried googling it myself, but sadly I've searched too many conspiracy-related terms and just typing in "contrails" it gives me all "chemtrail" related pages... lol
Goes to show how Google does "personalise" your experience.
So... just when did You (by You, i mean all posters here on ATS) first hear about chemtrails ?
i first heard the idea back in the summer vacation period (June-July-August) of 1961 0r 1962 can't quite remember exactly without deeper thought & recall
I was at Hershey Pa. on a dairy farm belonging to the Milton Hershey Foundation... the evening sky was cherry red and there were several contrails of pure white pencil thin smoke way up there, like today's typical jet contrails...
a classmate said to another classmate that it would be very easy to put a virus powder in thos aircraft that would eventually settle down to the ground and cover many hundreds of square miles with some airborne chemical or biological weapon.... thats when i first heard about the idea of chem-trails... during the height of the 'cold war' in the Kennedy years
Oh... it must have been 1963, the classmate was named B Lundquist (yeah like the sports announcer that's still covering sports since the 1960's on CBS sports)
this post cites documents from 1990 that chemicals or things like aluminum particulates were being used to help reduce global-warming...
There has to be some reason why most contrails today cross the entire sky then spread out and cover the sky in thin blankets of cloud.
The spreading out of jet contrails into extensive cirrus sheets is a familiar sight. Often, when persistent conditions exist from 25,000 to 40,000ft, several long contrails increase in number and gradually merge into an almost solid interlaced sheet.
The second German sighting occurred on May 9, 1919, when a pilot flying over Berlin at about 26,000 feet noticed the generation of a cloud stream that extended for about forty miles behind his plane. This stream eventually spread out to form a cloud layer that was about 3,000 feet thick. The pilot saw a similar phenomenon two days later.

Cirrus clouds have been classified by height since studies on these clouds began.
Unfortunately, this method of classification does not take into account condensation
trails, or contrails. As a result, there is no consensus concerning whether contrails can be
categorized as a type of cirrus cloud or are a different phenomenon altogether. Cirrus
cloud formation differs from contrail formation, but other properties, such as their
thickness and occurrence, are very similar. Although contrails usually disappear without
significantly impacting the atmosphere, occasionally contrails may act as a generating
mechanism for cirrus clouds. The nuclei used for cirrus clouds and contrails originate
from different sources, but both phenomena go through similar freezing processes as they
