Four years ago, in January 2012, I started a survey to try to discover when people first noticed persistent trails being left by aircraft in the sky. These trails are generally agreed by scientists and the general public to be aircraft contrails - condensation of water vapor which triggers cloud formations which can persist and spread if conditions are right. However there are a significant number of people who believe the theory that these trails are...
The hacking group AnonSec recently posted a text file, accompanied by a large data dump, in which they claim to have hacked NASA servers while looking for evidence of "chemtrails". Here's how they put it:
This text file (a pruned version of which is attached to this post) and data release has been used by many groups that promote the "chemtrails" theory as "proof" that chemtrails are real, and that there's some kind of secret geoengineering program going on.
LaVoy Finicum was shot by the FBI. Depending on your interpretation of the video he was shot either before or after he put his hands down and reached across his body with his right hand to an area on the left side of his body. His left hand is either reaching for the same area, or pulling his jacket aside.
A common meme being shared is show above, on the left. The claim is that since Finicum carried his gun on the right, then he would not have reached for his left side unless he had been shot there.
A week ago, on January 9, 2016, a vast contrail grid was formed over the Southeastern Australia. Its images were captured by all three satellites in the NASA Worldview: Terra, Aqua and Suomi NPP. The Terra image below is a composite of two swaths, the right one was taken at 23:55 (8-Jan-2016) UTC and the left one at 01:30 UTC:
The Aqua and Suomi satellites passed over this area later, at about the same time, 04:05 and 4:00 UTC, respectively. Separated by a few hours, these images give us just snapshots of the grid, the older contrails in which probably dissipated and were replaced with younger ones.
Fortunately, it was possible to follow the evolution of this particular contrail grid thanks to the Japanese weather satellite Himawari-8. It is located on a geostationary orbit above the Equator and a meridian...
A widely shared image appears to show a giant figure walking about the clouds. However the most likely explanation is that it is two plumes of condensation from a power station rising above a low cloud layer
Proponents of the theory that there's a secret geoengineering program going on often try to find odd things about snow, as they feel that unusual snow is a sign of geoengineering. In a video, one proponent claims to have two jars of water, one being snow melt, and the other being tap water. He claims the jars are at the same temperature. He then demonstrates that the melt-water jar seems to melt less additional snow than the tap water jar. He does this by adding approximately equal amounts of snow to both jars. The result being this:
In a rather odd reversal of known science, the latest chemtrail theory is that modern high-bypass engines do not create contrails. A comprehensive explanation of why this is incorrect can be found in the following video:
As noted towards the end of the video, the idea can be debunked simply by a review of the scientific literature. The likelyhood that a particular engine will create a contrail is governed by the "contrail factor", and this is higher for high bypass engines - I encourage you to research this for yourself, and I give some links below.
The classic demonstration of high bypass engines producing more contrails is the study:
Ulrich Schumann and Reinhold Busen, 2000, Experimental Test of the Influence of Propulsion Efficiency on Contrail...
