Can anyone here explain it to a layman? Example: MattStopChemtrails. I pick Matt because he is a fellow Australian, deeply committed and apparently there is something very strange in his psychological makeup. Matt is reknown for applying the parameters of the Appleman graph incorrectly, using the sea level temperatures and RH values to "prove" that contrails can never exist in sub-tropical Queeensland where he lives. Apparently there is no air-traffic either where he lives, just north of Brisbane. I have have not shown him the Australian visualization produced by Mick yet, but only because I suspect that his "filtering mechanisms" will simply not allow his brain to process the information. That aside, his last FB entry is worthy of comment. Matt considers that his finding of an unclassified research report submitted by a USAF Major attending a staff college as absolute irrefutable proof of widespread ongoing weaponised weather manipulation, that is happening now. http://www.dtic.mil/cgi-bin/GetTRDoc?AD=ada539515 I just need some help in understanding how he gets to this point, after crossing what I consider to be the following, intractable logic gates. Quotes from the preamble to the report... 1. Operational Defenses through Weather Control in 2030 2. A Research Report Submitted to the Faculty In Partial Fulfillment of the Graduation Requirements Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama April 2009 3. Distribution A: approved for Public Release: Distribution Unlimited 4. SECURITY CLASSIFICATION OF: a. REPORT unclassified b. ABSTRACT unclassified5.

So how do we get from there to this FB post and the absolute uncritical admiration of his followers? The post can be found here. https://www.facebook.com/#!/AustraliansAgainstChemtrails?fref=ts So I am at a loss. I feel like, that to cope with this mindset, one needs almost to become like them. Frankly that scares me. Does anyone have some professional input as to the pyschological profile we are dealing with here?
