Contrails Versus Chemtrails

The Contrails are formed high up in the air by jet engines that burn fuel. The combustion process forms carbon dioxide and water vapour. Due to the low temperature of the air, of below -40°C, the air is not capable to bring the water vapour rapidly in solution, hence forming the stripes we witness from the ground.

Millions of people around the world believe in Chemtrails. Chemtrail is a contraction of the words chemical and trail, and thus a variant of contrails. It concerns the process, according to conspiracy theorists, that chemicals are deliberately released into the atmosphere, for example, to fight climate change or to let the mob dance to the tune of the elite. The question which chemical would be capable of doing such a job remains unanswered.

Chemtrails is one of the youngest conspiracy theories, introduced in 1996 by conspiracists. There is no evidence for Chemtrails whatsoever. It seems that conspiracists found a new kind of religion. A new play toy to sink their teeth into.

In the field of biological weapons, there is almost no prospect of detecting a pathogen until it has been used in an attack.

An Example of Chemtrails - Agent Orange

Agent Orange

But there is one certainty in life. There is no such thing as being 100% right or wrong. There's always room for doubt, with 100% certainty.

Where smoke is, is always fire.

The theory of Chemtrails did not just fall from the sky. Witnessing the horrific images what the US military did in Vietnam.

The military used Agent Orange in large quantities by spreading the chemical over the jungle of Vietnam with airplanes.

In Vietnam, the public was assured that it only was to destroy the foliage, and would be harmless for humans (and their own military). But the Vietnamese population became ill in large numbers. About 3 million in total.

Agent Orange was a mixture of two herbicides, chlorophenoxy acetic acid (2,4,5-T) and Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D). The irony of the fate is now that the latter recently (2014) has been approved by the US government as a herbicide for use with genetically modified soybeans and maize. The effects of this chemical is extensively known. Thus, to put it mildly, this approval of the government is a criminal act.

The lies of the US government about Agent Orange was grist for the mill of conspiracists. It was clear that the government could not be trusted about their disclosures. A simple case of cause and effect.

The fear that the government lied about Agent Orange in Vietnam, has jumped on the US population itself. The government cannot be trusted in these kind of matters. This fear took hold of conspiracists, and became unable to separate fact from fiction. The fear was thrown on a big pile, called Chemtrails.

This article about Agent Orange might shake up sceptics and other short-sighted debunk addicts.

Conspiracists Are Unable to Analyse the Subject

That conspiracists are unable to analyse a subject properly is maybe a firm statement, but it contains unfortunately a large part of the truth.

Most conspiracists are uneducated extroverts. Their inability to think is compensated by their extrovert-ness. Most of them are able to put things nicely into words, and to twist and change, that it seems as if they must be right. But most of their arguments simply do not hold water.

And this is one of the tragedies of conspiracists. They sense that there is something wrong, but are not able to analyse the subject as it should be.

There are conspiracies, but not the kind of conspiracies the conspiracists are looking for. Every conspiracy, since it is an organized game, must be economical viable with a profitability of at least 10%. Chemtrails certainly do not meet this requirement. The time between cause and effect is too long.

The recent approval of Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid as herbicide is a typical conspiracy, since it meets the profitability requirements. But since it's all in the open, it doesn't seem interesting for conspiracists to 'discover'. They like to unveil hidden secrets, busy with things no one really needs.

Who is going to stop this obvious violation of human rights?

What Kind of Chemicals do Contrails Contain?

It is a myth to claim that because Contrails mainly consist of carbon dioxide and water vapour, it is therefore harmless. Contrails contain a series of toxic compounds formed during the combustion process.

It is a myth to say that the extremely poisonous plant, Aconitum napellus, is harmless because it contains 99.8% edible ingredients, while the extremely poisonous ingredient, Aconitine, is just 0.2%. The active ingredient is so poisonous that an almost immeasurably small part of it makes the whole plant inedible.

This is the technique short-sighted debunkers of Chemtrails use. To say that Contrails contain mainly carbon dioxide and water, and therefore harmless, is close to ignorance.

There Are no Contrails Nor Chemtrails

The fact is there are no 100% Contrails, and there are no 100% Chemtrails.

Chemtrails do not exist in the way conspiracists claim. That the pilot deliberately would switch something mysterious on/off is simply preposterous. There is still no chemical evidence for it. But there is something else going on.

Contrails contain large numbers of highly toxic compounds like NOx, HOx, COx, SOx, H2SO4, and other organical compounds. The 'x' stands for the number of oxygen atoms connected to Nitrogen (N), Hydrogen (H), Carbon (C), and Sulfur (S). The x can be 1, 2 or 4. All these compounds are between 20 to 50% heavier than air, which means they will definitely flutter down to earth as ultrafine particles.

These particles are harmful for all living beings, but no one ever intentionally putted the components in it to harm the population. Chemical engineers made up the perfect mix for air plane fuel, and neglected the possible negative effects of the combustion products.

In case there was a whistle-blower among the chemical engineers, this had been effectively neglected by executives, since that would have been harmful for profits.

It's always about the money. That's all!

      Thanks for sharing your insights here, Deb. Most people are fully oriented on their senses. When chemicals don't smell bad, they assume it is therefore harmless. That's probably what you saw on the video.

      2 4 5-t is 100% colourless and odourless, and medium toxic. 2,4-D has a typical smell on the other hand, and has been approved recently as herbicide.

      Both chemicals, dependent on the dosage, can be instantly harmful and on the long run. The laboratory tests are clear about this as well as the endless amount of victims in Vietnam. Thank you very much for your contribution!

      Couldn't tell you a thing about chemtrails, but when I went to a history conference in NYC years ago, there was a discussion on agent orange. A deceased news reporter's wife had his footage and propaganda messages from the US government, saying that agent orange was safe to use. It showed our boys pumping the stuff out of hoses barehanded and with no respirators. By the way, none of the major networks would televise any of this material, and it never went any further than independent film festivals. Imagine that.

      Thanks so much for your returning, my friend. That's a very wise advise to look within. Thanks for the kind words.

      Yes, yes, Bro. I know.

      I can tell you that your reasoning is immaculate. Truth be told, even Disciples on the Path I follow talk about this. But Sri Ramakrishna's way and my Guru's way is to cut through all this and look within. They will give us anxiety, perhaps. Not enlightenment. Still, discernment is good. Much love.

      Thanks for your kind comment, Manatita. Most conspiracy theories are composed of true facts, but are often combined in a wrong way. Conspiracists like to continue finding new things, while we all know what is the bases: egoism+greed+ignorance=capitalism. You as an enlightened human know too that this is what underlies all suffering on earth.

      You probably summed it up in your last line, Bro. Anyway, I have heard of these theories. Pretty frightening sometimes and so I avoid them when I can.

      Your approach and reasoning is not off by any means. There are so many variants in this life. Higher blessings.

      It's an excellent hub with realistic revelations, with all those details your assertion about the non existence of chemtrails is true. Keep it up Buildreps we enjoy your research oriented hubs. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for your appreciated comment, Bill. The most revealing part of all is perhaps the reuse of Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) in weed control.

      I've actually never heard of that word...contrails I've heard of....anyway, thanks for the information and food for thought.

      Thanks for dropping by, Yoleen :) I have friends too who are quite paranoid about governments, and there's actually a truth in it. The NSA is actually recording all traffic through phone and e-mail. Maybe you can already start to train a pigeon to get your letters across the Pacific?

      My best friend in California is always harping about chem trails. I have often seen the trails left by high-flying jets; as a child, they were called skywriters. Some would even write words.

      My friend had a tendency to be paranoid, to the point where she has closed her gmail account and refuses to look for work. I find it highly significant that it's perfectly ok for her husband to work, and she now uses his gmail account. I wonder what would happen if he got as paranoid as her, and did the same things she does???
