Contrail - VS - Chemtrail: US Patents for Chemtrails and Geoengineering

Updated on March 30, 2012

The Chemtrail Debate: Contrails or Chemtrails?

If you have studied chemtrails and have reached a point where you are having any form of conversation on them (in person or online), soon you will be faced with the process of having to defend your position on whether these are a contrail or chemtrail.

All of my logical friends will immediately go into an elaborate debate about how these, so called Chemtrails, are merely water vapor trails that are a result of condensation... jet stream trails, blah blah blah.


If you have never seen a chemtrail and don't understand the difference between a contrail and a chemtrail, these next two videos are excellent tools to help you see what I am talking about.

The first video shows a side by side comparison of a regular contrail compared to the persistent contrail (chemtrail) which is directly beside it. The contrail disappears as if behind a boat traveling along. It travels very close to the plane and disperses like a wake behind a boat. The chemtrail has a much more visible stream, leaving a persistent contrail which does not disperse like the typical contrail. It lingers in the air and then morphs into huge geoengineered cloud-like structures. This video is excellent because you can clearly see the huge difference between the two different patterns. (The music is a bit annoying, so you may want to turn down the sound).

The second video shows a time lapse video of McCarran Airport in Las Vegas. You will see the layering effect of chemtrail on chemtrail, almost as if they are an artist layering different layers of paint on a surface. You can see how this progression of chemtrails morphs into huge geoengineered clouds.

Chemtrails: Could they really be more than a Conspiracy Theory?

When I first started this massive research project on Chemtrails, I was faced with a great sense of denial. Partly, because I didn't really want to know that the population was being "sprayed" -- and partly because a number of different internet research sources had labeled the topic of chemtrails in the category of a "conspiracy theory".

The term "conspiracy theory" normally gets a bad rap. Its the type of term that immediately has people rolling their eyes -- and many people immediately tune out anything else that you have to say if there is even an inkling of a suspicion that a topic has been listed in the "conspiracy theory" type range.


When you first see Chemtrails in your own neighborhood, in your own town-- it is easy to just try to deny that anything like this is really happening. This subject is very confrontive. The image of planes flying by and dropping chemicals overhead is reminiscent of the old "RAID" pesticide ads. Yes, the ads where the cute little bugs would be having some type of picnic or party when all of a sudden the can of "RAID" appears and the little bugs start running for their lives!

Who really wants to admit that you feel as if you are a common rodent with a can of RAID spraying directly overhead?


This is a very tough pill to swallow when you are trying to remain in a state of bliss. Life was much less complicated when I really didn't know! You can definitely reach that state of "bliss" a lot easier-- if you are totally ignorant of anything that is going on.

Early RAID Commercial

Most people are still not aware that we are being chemtrailed...

Chemtrails are one of those things that is happening "so IN YOUR FACE" that it appears to be a no-brainer. However, in over a year and a half of constant study of this topic-- it is a rare person who even looks up and actually sees that there are planes spraying spider like lines which quickly morph into huge geoengineered clouds.

It is a weird surrealistic and freaky sociology experiment to sit at coffee shop for a couple of hours filming these things and watch people's non-reaction to them. I have been amazed to see the non-response of people as they are casually walking under them... strolling open baby carriages or even jogging through this stuff, but rarely do they ever really look up to the sky and see that there is some type of chemically altering environmental issue which is looming directly over head.

United States Nonconsensual Human Testing

When I first began researching Chemtrails, I was not well versed on a lot of the medical and human nonconsensual human testing which has been conducted in the United States in the name of science or military operations.

This was a huge eye-opener because it is one of those subjects that is really not covered on our daily news. You have to dig for this information. It is a very rare talk show host who will venture in this territory.

It is a subject that is very frightening. No one wants to really "go there". It is a subject that is strictly taboo... so it is not discussed.

Below is a google search that I conducted on the United States nonconsensual human testing. It shows how extensive this subject is, and how many things are well documented.

Since when do contrails require a patent?

As someone who has actively studied this technology, you quickly realize that you can talk till you are blue in the face explaining this-- but a number of people still need to realize that this technology is far more than a contrail and is something that is steeped in science with US patents.

My rhetorical response to the statement of..."these are just contrails"-- is... "since when do contrails have patents?"... (Obviously, if there are US patents which have been filed on technology such as this-- these are FAR More than merely "contrails").


There are many people that still want to place this into a classification of "conspiracy theory" when there are dozens of United States patents designed specifically for geoengineering, the stratospheric spraying of the atmosphere, and chemtrail technology.


As far as I know, a conspiracy theory does not require a US patent, does it?

Oooops, there goes the whole "conspiracy theory"-- right?


This hub article is dedicated to those people who are still having difficultly bridging the gap in consciousness that Chemtrails are something more than a jet stream or Contrail.

The Patent Procedure is Extensive and Very Expensive

My original hypothesis on this subject -- is that inventors would not go to the trouble to secure a patent of their invention without having a drive to use the invention.

After researching this further, this is a far more complicated process than I first realized. There are a ton of legal hoops to jump through to secure a patent of any kind. This is a very expensive process. Patent attorneys work by the hour and larger firms will charge a rate of three times the amount that an independent attorney would charge.


Starting with a source from a patent attorney's office, I'm now going to give you a summary of what I have researched in regards to the patent process for inventions.

To start with... there is a $1000 nominal novelty search to research any prior filings which would be similar to an invention that would be patented. This basically gives you a rough idea of what is out there and how likely that your idea could be patentable. This search is recommended to any inventor who is wanting to make sure that their idea is patentable.


Once the inventor is ready to file a patent application -- there are 2 ways to go. 1.) File a Provisional Patent Application -- which gives the inventor the right to claim "patent pending" on inventions and reserves your place in line for one year with regard to the priority of your invention over any subsequent disclosures of similar inventions. 2.) To secure your idea of potential theft you will have to do more than file a provisional patent application. Only after a non-provisional patent application has issued are any rights enforceable. Therefore, you would have to go through a patent pending phase and sign a non-disclosure agreement prior to disclosure.


Do the math... attorneys are going to charge you an hourly rate to secure all of this. Only those people who are truly interested in moving forward with an invention are going to go through the hoops to pay for all of this professional guidance and legal filing fees for applications, etc...

The Basic Process for a US Patent Starts at $13,000 With An Independent Attorney Working for a Smaller Firm

Whoever is planning to jump through the basic hoops to file a patent will be spending at LEAST $13,000... so this in and of itself lets you know that the majority of people would not spend this type of money without planning to do something with their patent.

According to the patent attorney that I interviewed for this article, the average cost of a patent filing with attorney fees would be around $30,000 or more. (According to what she said, this is a conservative figure and is much less than what a huge law firm would charge).

The Legal Document from a Patent Attorney's Office...

For those of you who like to delve into all of the many legal details, here is a form from a US patent attorney's office:

Process and Costs for Patent Prosecution and Maintenance

(*NOTE* patent office fees are subject to change)


A search of some kind is recommended prior to any filing of a patent application. We can do a nominal novelty search for about $1000 on most simple applications. This will give you an idea of what is out there and how likely it is that your idea is patentable. There is no guarantee, however, because a completely thorough search that is cost effective is not really possible. A search like this is recommended if the inventor is not very familiar with the art area and needs to get an idea of patentability.


Once ready to file a patent application, there are two ways to go. One can file a provisional patent application for a flat fee of $1000 with my office. We do not include any claims nor any formal drawings. We disclose enough so that one of ordinary skill in the art could practice the invention by reading the disclosure. The filing a provisional patent application gives you the right to claim “patent pending” on your invention and reserves your place in line for one year with regard to the priority of your invention over any subsequent disclosures of similar inventions. It is wise to have at least patent pending status prior to disclosing your invention publicly. By filing the application, you foreclose anyone else from filing a subsequent application on the invention.

A provisional patent application will not be enough to protect you however from potential theft of the idea since a provisional patent application does not give any enforceable rights. Only after a non-provisional patent application has issued are any rights enforceable. Therefore, when showing your idea during the patent pending phase, it is advisable to also have the other party sign a non-disclosure agreement prior to disclosure. Our office can draft a non-disclosure agreement for $275 (our hourly rate).

III. Non-provisional patent application

A non-provisional patent application can be filed directly or claim priority from a previously filed provisional patent application. The cost of filing these applications varies with complexity, but the general range for applications filed by me is from $3000-5000. This may or may not include the cost of drawings ($130/page) and the filing fee ($545 with claims of 20 or less), but it is usually the case that the cost of filing falls within this range.

IV. Design patent

Design patents protect the way an invention looks rather than the way it operates. It is not as broad as a utility patent in that it is easier to infringe and it only lasts 14 years rather than the 20 afforded by the utility patent. Furthermore, there is no such thing as a provisional patent on a design. We charge $1000 plus drawing charges and filing fee for design patents. The total cost therefore ranges depending upon the number of drawings needed to show the look of the invention.

V. Post-application costs

Costs for maintaining the file and the patent once issued are outlined in fee agreement, but we still get confusion on the issue. Any time we receive correspondence from the USTPO regarding your application (and this is also true of trademarks), we charge at my paralegal’s rate of $125 for reviewing, reporting to you and calendaring any necessary actions. These nominal fees end up being $25-$37.50 per occurrence. Reviewing and reporting Office Actions require my input and review so they are billed at my hourly rate and usually end up being $62.50 per occurrence.

Typical correspondence after filing includes:

Filing receipt (review and report, calendar for foreign filing or converting a provisional into a non-provisional)

Notice of recordation of assignment (review and report) if an assignment was submitted. We charge about a half an hour of my time to prepare an assignment plus the $40 filing fee plus about a half an hour of my paralegal’s time to prepare the transmittal and cover sheet for the USPTO.

Notice of Publication (18 months after filing) (review and report)

Office Actions (review and report and sometimes calendar depending upon the action)

Anything that is calendared we send out an initial notice and then reminders as needed until we receive instructions. We do not charge for follow up reminders.

VI. Prosecution

After we receive an Office Action, there is typically an action that needs to be taken. This can take the form of an election (choosing one set of claims over another) or a rejection/objection to claims or other portions of the application. The cost of responding to these varies depending upon the amount of time it will take to respond. My hourly rate replies to these responses and can range from 1-4 hours…about $275-$1000.

If we receive repeated refusals after an initial response, we can continue the application for more fees ($375 for a request for continued application) or we can appeal with the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences, which generally costs $500 for the filing fee plus my time in preparing the appeal, between $1000-$2000 depending on complexity.

VII. Patent grant

Once we have made it through prosecution and our application is in condition for allowance, there will be an Issue Fee due plus our time in preparing the paperwork. The fee is currently $720 and our fee to submit the paperwork is $250.

VIII. Post-grant fees

Maintenance fees are due at 3.5 years, 7.5 years and 11.5 years after the date of issue. These fees get progressively higher and the absolute costs go up every year. The current schedule of fees can be found at the USPTO website, but it is certain to be a higher fee by the time you need to pay them. As with the Issue Fees, we charge $250 for our time in preparing the paperwork. Once the patent issues, we calendar these events and charge at my paralegal’s rate for the first reminder.

IX. Bottom line

With a bit of variation, as explained above, you can expect to pay up to $13,000 (going on the high end of estimates up there and not including extra costs for continued examination or appeals, which are not the norm, but are possible) over the life of your patent.

      Thanks for your visiting my hub page and for your comment, frogyfish. Yes-- this study of chemtrails seems to be ongoing. The more you learn about them-- the more you realize there is a world of information that is beneath the surface, almost like a gigantic iceberg. We are only hitting the surface, apparently. This is a much more extensive subject than most people can fathom.

      Yes, I've posted my information based on personal experience and from about 2 years of extensive research into what is going on with all of this. I just attended the "Beyond Chemtrails Conference" in LA, about 2 months ago. It was a great chance to meet other researchers and to study what is going on with all of this new "science".

      You are welcome to use my links in your hubs. I appreciate sharing information on this subject. It is an extensive topic, for sure!

      Thanks for a truthful hub, informative, and stating the obvious denial aspect of many of our population. I have taken over 500 personal pictures of chemtrails in my town, city, county, and a few taken in Arizona. I first became aware of chemtrails AFTER reading the headlines in the Daily Oklahoman in the mid 1990s...didn't remember the date, but last year paid to search the newspaper website and could not locate the information. Please read my two hubs on chemtrails as they will support your valid assumptions about chemtrails from a personal experience...not a conspiratorial one. I thought your "What Are They Spraying" video was one on TV in Arizona last year, but it is apparently different...did not watch all of it yet. Like you said and showed, a contrail and a chemtrail are two different things. I would like to link your hub to at least one of mine if you wouldn't mind. Thanks for sharing your detailed info and pix here, and keep looking up!!

      Thanks for reading my article, but I have been researching this topic for a year and a half solid now. There are tons of patents on this technology. This is FAR MORE than just merely aerosol particles emitted by planes. There are a number of "disinformation" specialists who try to pass this off as a mere "conspiracy theory", however-- since when do Conspiracy Theories hold United States Patents? (*** Answer... They Don't!!!). You should hear the radio show where I interviewed a patent attorney. She would be able to convince you otherwise.

      Planes naturally emmit aerosol particles which will aggravate new cloud formations. Scientific papers already details how plane-traffic create more clouds and change the climate on earth. No need for fancy ideas about massive chemical spraying from special tubes when it's already happening from regular jet engines.
