Lately we’ve noticed a significant number of what I thought were called “jet streams” crisscrossing the normally flawlessly blue skies of Tucson. It wasn’t until a YouTube user and local filmmaker by the name of Chris Haskell, commented on a video we posted about the local girl’s basketball team that we learned there’s a different name for these long lasting grid patterns in the sky.
“I hope they don’t practice outside lately in Tucson!” he wrote. “The sky’s have been filled with Chemtrails! Check it out! Google Chemtrails Tucson!”
We took Haskell’s suggestion and googled chemtrails, and at first I couldn’t stop reading. Now I can’t stop looking up at the sky.
First of all, there’s a difference between chemtrails, and “contrails,” referred to above as jet streams. Contrails are produced by high-flying jets and are made by water vapor during specific atmospheric conditions or when it’s cold enough to turn water vapor to ice. They last from a few seconds to a minute and then dissolve.
Chemtrails, on the other hand, occur during all weather conditions and are at varying altitudes. Like contrails, they are released from jets and start out as white lines. Soon, however, they plump up to look like clouds and they don’t evaporate. They can turn a cloudless Tucson day into a hazy, overcast day within hours.
Another feature of chemtrails is that they’re often seen in “X”, “S”, or “tic-tac-toe” patterns.
So what is it that’s coming out of the back of these jets? Analysis has shown that chemtrail sprays include “powdered aluminum, barium, pathogens and even dried human blood cells.” They have been reported to contain chemicals for crop dusting and mosquito control. Some say it’s airplane fuel dumping in order to reduce weight before landing.
After reading dozens of articles on many of the countless websites dedicated to chemtrail awareness, I can’t seem to find one, definitive answer about what makes up a chemtrail and, more importantly, WHO is doing the spraying. There has been denial from government authorities, a failure to cover the topic by the mainstream media, a pattern of discrediting researchers, and a whole group of people labeled as crackpots and conspiracy theorists for simply trying to get information.
Because of the questioning public’s inability to get direct answers, many theories have arisen about the purpose of chemtrails. Are they about weather modification? Population control? Are they part of an inoculation program? Are they indeed harmful to our environment and our health?
People living in spray areas, which are worldwide, have reported unusual smells and tastes in the air on spray days, along with increased illnesses—or “chem-illnesses”—with flu-like symptoms. “Itchy eyes, abdominal pain, joint aches and pain, headaches, fatigue and respiratory illnesses; upper respiratory and blood infections, severe asthma attacks, dizziness, and an inability to get a deep breath,” have all been attributed to chemtrail spraying.
Now I’m no hypochondriac, nor am I, my husband or my children ever too sick to get out of bed and have a normal day. We have our share of allergies and tension headaches, and don’t attribute them to much more than seasonal growth or periodic professional/educational stress factors.
But for the past two days I haven’t stopped sneezing or feeling the urge to rub my eyes. And guess what? For the past two days, Tucson’s skies have been sprayed and sprayed and sprayed. (I’ve got the pictures to prove it. All photos published here were taken from my driveway yesterday, March 19, between noon and 6pm.)
