I am sorry to say that these are not vapour trails. They are 'chem trails' (ie chemical trails) when an additive is mixed with jet fuel to produce a specific reaction in the atmosphere.

Ryan Calhoun on February 17, 2008

Hi Leila! The myth of "chemtrails" is as follows:

The New World Order has decided to replace the US, Canada, and Europe, with China as the major world power. In order to depopulate and reduce the influence of the West, "they" are adding poisonous and/or mind-controlling chemicals to jet exhaust, and blanketing target areas, harmlessly disguised as ordinary contrails.

It makes a wonderful story, but according to the laws of atmospheric science, fluid dynamics, and thermodynamics, these are perfectly normal jet contrails, formed when the superheated water vapor from the hydrogen-oxygen combination from the exhaust cools and condenses into an artificial cloud. They become more spread out and cloud-like hours after the plane has come and gone.

Greetings, Ryan :)

Thanks Ryan for clearing that up for me, wasn't so sure what 'chem trails' were... Had me worried. Fantastic story though and I'm so glad to hear that I haven't been brain washed =] Thanks again!

Ryan: why is it that ordinary vapour trails dissipate within minutes and the chem trails take hours to dispurse and simply spread out and create a cloudy sky. To start your comment with an obvious figment of your imagination that is totally absurde and one that people can identify as proposterous is an age old trick to lend credibility to the second part of your statement. "You can fool some of the pople some of the time, but you can not fool all the people all the time"

Hi Leila. I don't want to harp on the subject of chemtrails but do yourself a favour and have a look at this site and judge for yourself.

Leila.Evans on March 3, 2008

schyum I'm pretty open minded but I have to say I'm not convinced by this one!

Greetings, Leila :)
