just realized that we had a half-finished report on the main page for about
two weeks. No emails telling us about it, though. Our readership
must be lax. Or nonexistent...that's always a possibility.
subject of this entry is something that is not often covered by skeptical
groups, possibly because of the very odd nature of what seems to be going on:
In general, chemtrails
are defined by the paranormalites thusly, quoted from Toni Taylor, from Jeff
- Chemtrails (CTs) look like contrails
initially, but are much thicker, extend across the sky and are often laid
down in varying patterns of Xs, tick-tack-toe grids, cross-hatched and
parallel lines. Instead of quickly dissipating, chemtrails expand and drip
feathers and mare s tails. In 30 minutes or less, they open into wispy
formations which join together, forming a thin white veil or a "fake
cirrus-type cloud" that persists for hours.
- There is a wealth of photographic
evidence, including the photo, above, from this
article also on Jeff Rense.
- There is definitely something strange
going on. The article we link above is from a retired USAF Lt.
Colonel who assures Rense's faithful readers that he had never seen
anything like them.
- But it's difficult to separate the
woo-woo from the good theories about them.
- Take your pick of the pseudoscience:
- 1) Chemtrails are the New World
Order's method of thinning the herd, making the populace of the united
states more easily subjugated when the big invasion starts.
- 2) Chemtrails are "mass inoculation"
of the population in order to avoid a massive biowarfare attack on
- 3) Chemtrails are an attempt by the
government to avoid imminent threats of global warming, by seeding the
atmosphere with aluminum.
- 4) Chemtrails are an early American
attempt at weather control.
- With all of these Evil Secret Masters
theories floating around the issue, it's difficult to work through the
garbage and get to the facts.
- But what are the facts? We know
only that weird cloud formations are appearing in the sky, apparently left
by government or unmarked aircraft. The Lt. Colonel in the above
article mentioned that dumping fuel into the atmosphere is a standard
practice for Air Force flights, no matter where they are or what they
happen to be doing. But he admits that he had never seen such
dumping appear in the "criss-cross" patterns typical of
- So, we want some skepticism. We
don't know what's going on, and our knowledge of atmospheric anomalies is
hardly functional in these types of investigations.
- Can you help us sort this out?
