Ever Wonder About Chemtrails (chemical trails) in the sky overhead?
Submitted by Monte Smith on Sun, 08/01/2010 - 3:19pm.
The first I ever heard the term "chemtrail" was in the month of July during the summer of 01' when my wife and I stopped at a little health food store in Harrison, AR. (we were visiting AR at the time and on a camping trip). While doing a bit of shopping we struck up a conversation with the woman working there and, at some point in the conversation, the lady introduced us to the term "chemtrail" followed by a lengthy explanation. The subject was new news for my wife and I and both were instantly interested in the subject. It wasn't but a couple of hours later when we stopped at a State Park by Norfork Lake to have a swim when we looked up and directly overhead was this big X in the sky. Our first chemtrail sighting! Actually, not so. Upon seeing this X that, by the way, just lingered in the sky for a couple of hours or so, realized that we had been seeing these "chemtrails" for years. As it turns out we had been remarking on these incredible contrails and unusual patterns of contrails in the FL skys and throughout our drive from FL to AR. But, we had all along been seeing them as being "jet-trails" or contrails (condensation trails). But, once the different characteristics between the two had been pointed out to us by the lady in the Harrison health food store, it was easy to look up in the sky and distinguish between what were contrails and what were chemtrails.
Since the time of my chemtrail enlightenment I have attempted to pass the enlightenment onto others. However, I have been continually surprised to find that more people than not, that I brought the topic up to, quidkly rejected the information without personal inspection, consideration or discussion. Instead, of a display of curiousity and interest I would generally experience the person throwing out the thought-stopping word...CONSPIRACY as if they were Captain Kirk ordering "Sheilds up!" In any case, once that word was out there it was the empahtic period to the subject being addressed.
This morning I received in my inbox, a credible article that finally acknowledges (and more) the existence and purpose of chemtrails. As I have seen the word chemtrail referenced here on TCW on a few occasions (usually in a derogatory way), I thought I would paste an excerpt from the article and, of course, also include a link to it.
Title: Atmospheric Geoengineering: Weather Manipulation, Contrails and ChemtrailsA Review of the "Case Orange" report
By: Rady Ananda
At an international symposium held in Ghent, Belgium May 28-30, 2010, scientists asserted that “manipulation of climate through modification of Cirrus clouds is neither a hoax nor a conspiracy theory.” It is “fully operational” with a solid sixty-year history. Though “hostile” environmental modification was banned by UN Convention in 1978, its “friendly” use today is being hailed as the new savior to climate change and to water and food shortages. The military-industrial complex stands poised to capitalize on controlling the world’s weather.
“In recent years there has been a decline in the support for weather modification research, and a tendency to move directly into operational projects.” ~World Meteorological Organization, 2007
The only conspiracy surrounding geoengineering is that most governments and industry refuse to publicly admit what anyone with eyes can see. Peer-reviewed research is available to anyone willing and able to maneuver the labyrinth of scientific journals. So, while there is some disclosure on the topic, full public explanation is lacking. A brief list of confirmed cloud seeding events is produced at bottom, starting in 1915.
Going under a variety of names – atmospheric geoengineering, weather modification, solar radiation management, chemical buffering, cloud seeding, weather force multiplication – toxic aerial spraying is popularly known as chemtrails. However, this is merely one technique employed to modify weather. The practice of environmental modification is vast and well funded.
Hosted by the Belfort Group, which has been working for the last seven years to raise public awareness of toxic aerial spraying, the Symposium included chemtrail awareness groups from Greece, Germany, Holland, France and the U.S. Belfort published five videos covering only May 29, when filmmaker Michael Murphy (Environmental Deception and What in the world are they spraying) and aerospace engineer Dr. Coen Vermeeren  gave the most dramatic presentations.
Dr Vermeeren, of the Delft University of Technology, presented  a 300-page scientific report entitled, “CASE ORANGE: Contrail Science, Its Impact on Climate and Weather Manipulation Programs Conducted by the United States and Its Allies.” 
Case Orange notes it was prepared for the Belfort Group by a team of scientists but presented anonymously. It was sent to embassies, news organizations and interested groups around the world “to force public debate.”
