One of the most prevailing theories of our time is that world governments are performing sinister experimentation upon their populations by utilizing the contrails of Jet engines to spray chemicals and microbes. Theorists have renamed contrails as “chemtrails” and they fear that they are being used eugenically to eliminate the elderly and weak, or to dump barium salt aerosol onto the landscape so the military can develop more advanced radar mapping systems.
Some even believe that the government is using it for personal tracking and mind control via satellite projections of movies, ideas and sensations. This conspiracy is growing in popularity, with 2.6% of the people interviewed in a joint UK, Canadian and US study believing that chemtrails are a real phenomenon, and a further 14% feel concerned that it might be genuine.
Proof for Conspiracy Theorists?
And do these theorists have anything genuine to go by to support their fears? There have been cases in the past where governments have released substances into the atmosphere to either experiment on human populations or make attempts to control the weather. In the 1950s, the US government released bacteria into the atmosphere above San Francisco in “Operation Sea-Spray” which lead to antibiotic resistant illness, and even death of members of the population. At around the same time the British experimented with cloud seeding in “Operation Cumulus”, in which deadly flash floods occurred. People therefore feel rightly concerned that our governments are willing to experiment on us, without telling us, having no concern for our welfare.
Scientists however are quick to retort that adding substances to contrails, to convert them to chemtrails, is near impossible due to the altitude which leaves them subject to erratic winds. It would deem any such experimentation unworkable. On the other hand, they recently admitted to having considered utilizing contrails to try to repair ozone damage.
Researchers at The John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard released a study speculating about what would happen if light-reflecting sulphate aerosols were injected into the stratosphere with the intention to cool the Earth. Despite the risk of further damaging the ozone layer, they claim that they have discovered an aerosol that is both ozone healing and cooling. But they admit it is merely a Band-Aid solution, and still view geoengineering as risky.
