I’ve often looked up and seen patchworks across the sky and thought that it was nothing more than harmless condensation from aircraft.
Dane Wigington runs GeoEngineering Watch and says that what I’ve been observing is actually something a lot more harmful.
Contrails (short for “condensation trails”) are formed when hot exhaust gases from aircraft engines mix with cold air at high altitudes, typically above 25000 feet, and in cold and humid atmospheric conditions. The water vapor in the exhaust condenses into tiny ice crystals, forming a visible trail. Contrails usually appear as white lines that quickly dissipate or disappear within a few minutes or seconds, depending on atmospheric conditions.
They are a natural byproduct of jet engines and are essentially artificial clouds.
Chemtrails (short for “chemical contrails”), however, are trails left behind by aircraft are not ordinary contrails but, instead, intentional releases of chemicals or biological agents by governments or other organisations for various purposes, such as weather modification, mind control, or population control. Such trails persist in the sky for much longer than normal contrails and spread out to form a haze or cloud-like appearance.
Weather modification programs are common.
- Project Cirrus (1947) was one of the first large-scale weather modification experiments conducted by the General Electric Research Laboratory and the US Army. Its aim was to investigate the possibility of using cloud seeding to alter hurricanes. In October 1947, they tried to modify a hurricane near the coast of Georgia and, instead of steering the hurricane away, it changed course and hit the coast, causing a lot of damage.
- Operation Popeye (1967-1972) was a covert weather modification program conducted by the US military during the Vietnam War. Its objective was to increase rainfall over specific areas of the Ho Chi Minh trail to impede the movement of enemy troops. Cloud seeding was used to worsen the rainfall, extending the monsoon season and creating muddy and impassable conditions.
Cloud seeding is the most common form of weather modification. It involves dispersing substances, such as silver iodide or dry ice, into clouds to stimulate the formation of ice crystals or raindrops. The goal is to enhance precipitation in areas experiencing drought or water scarcity. For example, China has extensively used cloud seeding to increase rainfall, especially in regions like Beijing before the 2008 Olympics and during severe droughts in agricultural areas.
Hail suppression programs aim to reduce the size and intensity of hailstones during severe thunderstorms. By dispersing agents into the storm clouds, such as silver iodide or liquid propane, the growth of hailstones is impeded, potentially reducing damage to crops, property, and infrastructure. Examples of hail suppression programs include those in the United States, Canada, and several European countries.
Fog dispersal techniques involve the dispersal of hygroscopic materials, like calcium chloride or potassium carbonate, to reduce the density of fog and improve visibility around, say, airports and highways. This approach is often used in areas with frequent fog occurrences, such as San Francisco International Airport.
Attempts to modify hurricanes have been done with the goal of weakening or redirecting powerful storms. However, the complexity and scale of hurricanes make it extremely challenging to significantly alter their behaviour, from what I can find.
Dane’s documentary, The Dimming, explores a lot of this, particularly chemtrails.
