‘Look up; wake up’ to chemtrails

CHEMTRAILS appeared in the skies above Paphos on Sunday, during an event held by the Green Party to raise awareness of the phenomena, organisers said.
Green Party member and Peyia councillor Linda Leblanc said the timing was perfect. “As we were holding a demonstration at Paphos harbour to raise awareness of this problem, chemtrails were clearly visible in the sky.”
“I’m telling people to wake up and look up,” she added.
The term chemtrail is derived from "chemical trail" in the same way as contrail is an abbreviation for the condensation trail left by commercial aircraft. Chemtail spraying does not refer to common forms of aerial spraying such as crop dusting, cloud seeding or aerial firefighting. The trail is also criss-cross rather than straight like a flight path.
Chemtrails specifically refer to these aerial trails allegedly caused by the systematic high-altitude release of chemical substances not found in ordinary contrails, resulting in the appearance of supposedly uncharacteristic sky tracks.
Supporters of the theory speculate that the purpose of the chemical release may be for global dimming, population control, weather control, or biological warfare/chemical warfare and claim that these trails are causing respiratory illnesses and other health problem
Detractors – including the British bases, which have been accused of being the culprits - however say the trails are nothing more than condensation trails or contrails which form when exhaust gases from passing passenger jet engines combine with very cold, humid air at high altitude.”
Leblanc said: “You can recognise a chemtrail as they are wider than contrails, they are grid-like or criss- crossed in appearance and they spread out.”
According to the Greens, spraying of suspicious substances was taking place over Cyprus on a daily basis by aircraft which operate with no specific flight plan.
Green’s spokesman, and deputy, George Perdikis, stressed the need for high-level investigation into the phenomena during Sunday’s event where participants gave out information leaflets .
Perdikis said he hoped this would help to put pressure on the Cyprus government to investigate the matter. He also underlined the need for chemical analysis of the areas being sprayed.
“The British and the Americans are serving their own agenda and this agenda has nothing to do with the good of this country,” he said.
Petros Theodisiou, the representative of the committee against chemical spraying said that even yesterday, chemtrails were still visible in the sky to the naked eye. He was concerned that the chemicals would find a way into the food chain, if they had not already.
Leblanc, who believes the spraying may be connected with manipulating the weather, said: “We don’t want to scare people but we do want to make them aware of what is going on and to make them aware of the need for information to be made public. It’s all very secretive.”
