Anyone believe in this sh*t?

I have a co-worker who sends me this link and buys into this theory of weather terrorists and stuff. Of course, he's a donkey fan. It's interesting, but sounds pretty far-fetched to me.

Anyways, here's the link:

Sure there are... Cynical and distrusting.

I'm not saying that the contrails are weather manipulation tactics. I have no idea what they are. I just know that they're something. They have a purpose. Otherwise they wouldn't spend the money to get the coverage that they do. They're spending a lot of money on fuel to get the kind of coverage that they get.

Unfortunately, the computer that I have the images on right now is working on partitioning my new 400GB hard drive, and I can't access it right now... Maybe I have a backup here somewhere...

I chose the University of Kansas to study meteorology. These Idaho winters were just too rugged for me. Snow in May, yuck! There was that and the math requirements at KU weren't too tough. http://www.weatherwars.info/bio.htm

I think he's nuts with the whole chinese mafia attacking america with the weather, but I saw what I would call "chemtrails" over KC a number of times when I lived in the northland, and even took photos (don't have them now). And I'm not talking about KCI traffic, either, I'm talking about checkerboard patterns in the sky to the south. Whole grids with dozens of intersecting lines that I watched planes lay down, and then watched very slowly dissipate into cloud-ish or fog looking cover. These were not normal contrails, that I think we've all seen and recognize. These would last in the sky for hours.

Don't know what they were, and I haven't seen them for a few years. I also haven't looked for them, so maybe it still goes on, maybe it doesn't. I have wondered at times if it had anything to do with the drought we were in the middle of when I arrived ('98) that has since ended, thankfully.

I never discount *ANY* possibility until that possibilty is proven wrong. At the very least, I'm willing to consider the evidence and how each piece inter-relates.

I don't know if this stuff is something or if it's nothing. I'm not going to come into it with a pre-judgement without bothering to consider the evidence.

Though I will add, that as for my part, I don't find it unbelievable at all that weather can be manipulated. I think it probably can, if you know how to do it. If you had the technology. I don't know what that technology is or how it would work. Maybe microwaves? Who knows? I just don't find it unbelievable as a possibility, nor do I find it unbelievable that governments (or any power monger) would want such a thing in their grasp.

So bottom line is, all I know for sure is that they sprayed some junk over us, and do it quite often... especially in the Summer. I wouldn't notice it all that much except that it gives me a choke when I breathe it for too long.

We're talking about jet contrails... Simple cloud formations that by their very nature are low impact upon the weather patterns. If you have a thin stratus deck or cirrus shield, it could cause localized variations for a short period of time. However, even intentionally creating grid-like patterns of contrails isn't going to do jack-squat in the grand scheme of things.

This is all just some crazy attempt to mislead people from discovering the truth that the Earth is hollow.

So here's something that's a little more factual and it mentions Nasa and DOE experiments into jet traffic and weather patterns:

http://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/wxwise/class/contrail.html

It also helps explain how atmospheric conditions can extend the duration of contrails.

To summarize:
contrails = real - the vapor trail that's left from a jet which can even act as a catalyst for cloud formation in the right conditions

chemtrails = not real

people who believe in chem trails and secret gubmint programs to fight off the effects of aliens killing us by changing the Sun = ****ing nutbags that listen to Art Bell.

Save your moral indignation. Look through the website in the topic post and you'll find references to the idea that aliens are modifying our Sun to kill us off, but the governments of the world are heroically fighting back by seeding the weather patterns using chemtrails.

It does act like vapor and is explained perfectly well by our current understanding of meterology, chemistry, and physics. The people that generally by into this kind of crap (and it is crap) are people who barely have a high school or bachelors level understanding of science and are incredibly gullible. Pick up a copy of Carl Sagan's "Demon-Haunted World" and it may give you some insight into why people keep coming up with these crazy conspiracy theories. To me it's the same as people who believed the numbers on the backs of street signs were coded instructions to the military for who to detain when the revolution started.

So the question would be why are we seeing the groupings of contrails?
a) Maybe it's part of the DOE and NASA projects to research the effects of jet vapor on cloud formation and modifying weather patterns
b) Maybe since 9/11 we have more Air Force training missions or secret patrols as a part of our Homeland Security operations
c) Maybe since you live in Colorado there are a lot of nearby air bases, and oh - I don't know - this thing called NORAD, plus some companies like Lockheed Martin, Boeing, etc. I know I've seen some crazy shit going on south of 470 that had to be some kind of training mission or experiement.
d) Maybe the Blue Angels were in town and did a freebie by your house when you weren't looking.

Go ahead - jump to the conclusion that we're spraying chemicals from Jets just because you see vapor trails. It's your right to do so. It's my right to laugh at you (not with you). It's not my fault you're dumb and gullible, but if it makes you feel any better I'm trully sorry that you are :evil:

I have a degree in meteorology and I e-mailed that website to some friends who work in the field. We all got a good laugh from that site. There's nothing on that site, nor any pictures on this thread that don't have a basic meteorological explanation. If taco's jets regularly fly in grid-like fromations, that might be interesting to some, but the contrails they leave or don't leave are nothing special.

Maybe not to you, but it was to me. No, I don't have a degree in Meteorology, and I'm not going to speculate what it is and isn't, but I've never noticed clouds like that before or since. The pics barely do justice to what I saw that morning, it's hard to get a pic of the entire sky. I e-mailed those pics to a couple of local Meteorologists and to a few various websites and haven't received any explanation for them.

The vast majority of clouds are caused by rising air cooling and condensing. Sinking air warms and expands, and typically the clouds will dissipate. When you get an effect of shallow water gravity waves (can be caused by terrain, variances in pressure systems, other weather patterns, and a variety of other things--imagine having a bathtub filled with a couple of inches of water, and you take a ball and press it down into the water and pull it up, you'll get a wave like pattern which I'm describing), what you end up with is a sinusoidal (up and down, wave like pattern) in the air. As the waves propagate, where you get the upward motion, you have cloud formation, where you get the downward motion, the clouds dissipate. Hence, you get parallel lines with breaks in between.

MIT study on aluminum foil hats
Earlier this year, MIT engineers conducted an empirical study on the efficacy of aluminum foil helmets to block mind control rays. They've published the detailed results of their experiments online. From the abstract:

Rahimi Helmet Ali2Among a fringe community of paranoids, aluminum helmets serve as the protective measure of choice against invasive radio signals. We investigate the efficacy of three aluminum helmet designs on a sample group of four individuals. Using a $250,000 network analyser, we find that although on average all helmets attenuate invasive radio frequencies in either directions (either emanating from an outside source, or emanating from the cranium of the subject), certain frequencies are in fact greatly amplified. These amplified frequencies coincide with radio bands reserved for government use according to the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). Statistical evidence suggests the use of helmets may in fact enhance the government's invasive abilities. We theorize that the government may in fact have started the helmet craze for this reason.
http://people.csail.mit.edu/rahimi/helmet/

You focus the government control waves you don't block them stupid. You need to wear rubber helmet or hollowed bowling ball or a gold fish bowl still filled with water. Yeah that's the ticket.

OMGWTF


I'm glad you're having fun with this, but I've seen clouds like that. These were much thicker and in PERFECTLY straight rows.

Talked to a guy in the national gaurd while at class and he said some of these trails are due to high atmospheric flights. Had something to do with the thin air and type of fuel.

Anyone know if that sounds right?...

You should have asked him why the flight patterns are so odd, that's what gets people's attention.

Like that's a factor. I've been stoned every day of my life since I was 16, and I've only seen that once.

Here's another shot. This is of stratocumulus. And, no cloud is perfectly straight. Even the picture you posted proves that.


Stratocumulus clouds are gray or whitish. Both the tops and bottoms of these bases are rounded. They can look like waves on the ocean, joined flat cumulus, or a continuous but irregular layer. They can form from spreading out cumulus clouds, or from a stratus layer. The individual cloudlets are wider than two fingers at arm's length. Stratocumulus is most commonly made up of water droplets. Stratocumulus is classified as a low cloud.

I appreciate that, but I think without seeing what I saw that day live and in person, no one is going to fully grasp the image. There are too many trees around my house plus I lack the proper photography equipment that would be necessary to reproduce it effectively. These clouds weren't straight as in the edges were smooth, they were straight as in solid, equally sized & spaced, parallel lines running north/south from one horizon to the other. My pics are mostly too close up, but if you look out in the distance right above the school you can see the best example of it.

The pics suck, it's hard to describe, but I know darn well if anyone else saw the same thing they'd be saying WTF. I was surprised no one else around here noticed, but I took those pics at 8 AM on a weekday when most people aren't paying attention to the clouds, they're getting their asses to work. By 8:30 the clouds had spread out more like the pic you just posted. I find the chemtrail theory very hard to believe, and if I hadn't saw what I did for myself, I'd probably be laughing at me too. Hell, I am anyway, some of these responses are hilarious.
