CHEMTRAILS OR CONTRAILS?
FACs: FREQUENTLY AIRED CRITICISMS
(by Will Thomas)
FAC 1: You paranoid chemtrail conspiratorialists are seeing normal sky spoor from a marked increase in commercial air traffic. Combined with changing atmospheric conditions, these wetter and denser air masses are leading to lingering contrails and the artificial formation of cirrus-type clouds from ice-crystal condensation left by "rush hour" jet traffic.
Answer: There is no question that air traffic is up sharply throughout the world. (See "Jets" under "Investigations" www.islandnet.com/~wilco). Also that atmospheric change (including increased moisture) is contributing to increased natural and artificial cloud formation.
But not all sightings are of normal contrails. Experienced pilots, military personnel and other qualified observers note that:
1. Normal contrails dissipate less than one minute after formation. Many long-lingering "chemtrails" being reported across North America are being made at altitudes between 10,000 and 15,000 feet - well below the stratosphere where ice-crystal cloud condensation forms. Indeed, commercial aircraft entering spray zones often emit no contrails alongside "chemtrail"spraying aircraft. At higher altitudes and around airports, commercial jets have also been seen to leave pencil-thin contrails that quickly dissipate alongside fatter, billowing "chemtrails" that linger and spread out at the same altitude for hours.
2. Commercial aircraft do not cross each other's flight paths in Xs and grid-patterns at the same altitude. Concerned with making efficient point A to point B passages, airliners also do not fly back-and-forth in formation across the same patch of clear sky, laying long-lasting chemtrails for hours at a time.
3. Commercial aircraft prominently display their airline logo, "colors" and registration numbers. While configured after commercial aircraft, observed KC-135 and KC-10 spray aircraft are usually painted white and carry no identification markings.
4. Normal contrails come from the engines and wingtips of high-flying aircraft. They do not stream from the tails of airplanes equipped with wing-mounted engines. Chemtrails, on the other hand, have been observed through high-power telescopes and binoculars to be streaming from tanker tailbooms pointing downward at a 60-degree angle - the normal configuration for deployed refueling tailbooms. Chemtrails have also been observed streaming in thick white streams inboard of the wingtips but outboard of wing-mounted jet engines, where aerial tanker refueling probes are also deployed.
5. Contrails do not make people sick. Hundreds of eye-witnesses have become ill within hours of watching chemtrails woven over their heads. Many have tasted and smelled something metallic or corrosive in the air. Check the dates and locations of peak hospital admissions alongside sightings of heavy"spray days". They match.
6. Contrails do no rain cobweb-like material and jello-like "goo" over porches, powerlines and police cruisers. Most likely caused by misadjusted or malfunctioning spray nozzles, this material has been tentatively identified by a microbiologist as a "bio-matrix" for hosting and dispersing pathogens. Uncontaminated, fully-documented samples of this aerial fallout are being analyzed now. Previous (though inconclusive) samples tested inWashington state, Ohio and Wyoming have revealed the presence of highlytoxic ethylene dibromide (a component of JP8 jet fuel) and Psuedomonas Flourescens (a genetically modified bacteria that is extremely antibioticresistant).
Among other severe symptoms, both of these agents causesevere upper respiratory distress.
FAC 2: You are unfairly casting aspersions on the US military, accusing them of poisoning their own people.
Answer: The US military has conducted "Open air" biowarfare testing involving dangerous pathogens and carcinogens and resulting in illness and fatalitie sover hundreds of American cities without the informed consent of residents since 1949. However, because these spray aircraft are unmarked it is not possible to assert at this time that the US government and/or US military are responsible. These agencies are accountable, however, for allowing these overflights to continue.
FAC 3: You have absolutely no proof that these "contrails" are causing illness on the ground. Have you forgotten that it is the height of a particularly severe flu and asthma season?
Answer: Even at the height of the flu season, hospitals and doctors' offices across the USA, as well as in Canada and England are typically operating at twice their usual winter influx of respiratory patients, with EmergencyRooms jammed and some hospitals closed to new admissions. While outbreaks of the Sydney (A) strain and Beijing (B) strain of influenza have been identified in major North American cities (along with Respiratory Syntytial Virus causing only mild cold symptoms in adults) - the acute and recurring bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma, sinusitis and unidentified viruses reported by worried doctors and nurses do not fit this "flu" designation.Why an epidemic of pneumonia, bronchitis and unknown respiratory viruses is afflicting many thousands of adults and children coast-to-coast is unknown at this time.
But it is suggestive that almost all outdoor observers of spraying have become sick with extreme respiratory symptoms within 24 hoursof witnessing "contrails" unusual enough to excite comment and cause cameras and camcorders to be aimed skyward. Usually associated with damp, wet climates, outbreaks of bronchitis across the American southwest are unprecedented.
It is also suggestive that when two American veterans went to Veterans Administration hospitals for their annual flu shots several months ago, they were advised to get the pneumonia vaccine as well, because "pneumonia is going to be very big this year."
It is also suggestive that a nationwide 1-800-I-GOT-FLU tracking program is open only to participants who "qualify" by exhibiting specific symptoms after being exposed within 32-miles of known outbreaks within a specified time period.
It is also disturbing that on each of the three occasions that Washington state resident William Wallace has complained to the media of spraying over his remote mountain cabin, he and his wife Ann were attacked by jet and propeller aircraft diving in at treetop height to release spray within their property line. William and Ann Wallace remain sick, with William exhibiting several "marker" symptoms for infectious Mycoplasm Fermentans - the infamous Gulf War Illness.
After investigating GWI and exposing the origins of Gulf War Illness in my book, BRINGING THE WAR HOME it is the unconfirmed opinion of this writer that the outbreaks of Lupus and Fibromyalgia following some spraying incidents could actually be the look-alike symptoms of Mycoplasm Fermentans.The pneumonia outbreaks being reported across the USA may also be caused by Mycoplasm Pneumonia. Sputum and blood tests should be carried out to test this hypothesis.
Regarding the recent "flesh-eating" staph outbreaks in Delaware and Illinois, I also note that this Staph A belongs to the same family (genus)as Pseudomonas, strep and anthrax.Until the lab results are in, lack of "proof" should not obscure an overwhelming preponderance of pattern and precident. If a thousand people crowded around a field are sprayed with an unknown substance by unidentified aircraft...and if many of those people fall sick enough to be rushed to hospital...what would you conclude?
