Aluminium concentrations

Unnormal high concentrations of Aluminium seem to play an importan role in the Chemtrail Theory. They claim, that Aluminium concentrations of around 0,1mg/l are absolutely unnormal and could only be explained by Chemtrails. This is, of course, not true. I did some research and found Aluminium measurements from 1995, thus before they, supposedly, started "spraying chemtrails".

The European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (EMEP) is measuring air pollution and has also been measuring Aluminium concentrations in the air and in the precipitation in severel measuring stations throughout Europe for several years. Using their database one can find Aluminium measurements going back to 1995: http://ebas.nilu.no/

I ve made a screenshot from their oldest measurements which date back to 1995 and stem from two stations in Northern Germany: http://fs1.directupload.net/images/150602/sxlvptuf.jpg

As you can see, they measured concentrations of up to 0,214mg/l , thus higher than most concentrations measured by Chemtrail "Scientist"!!

One shoudl also note, that concentrations of up to 0,2mg/l are no problem, as even the german ´drinking water ordinance´ allows Aluminium concentrations of up to 0,2mg/l (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinkwasserverordnung)

Just stumbled across the website Chemtrails Project UK. They invite you to buy a rain water sample kit and they also publish the results of these tests on an interactive map (http://www.chemtrailsprojectuk.com/evidence/rainwater-test-kit-results-map/). Clicking around on a few dozen of these results I noticed that Ba, Sr were hardly detected at all and [Al] is never above 0,2 mg/L. So, in a way they are disproving their own claim that these substances are being sprayed:D

yet rather than accept the obvious, they move the goalposts:

Update (28th June 2015):

According to a Severn Trent Water statement: “The UK standard for aluminium is 200 parts per billion (ug/l), or 200 millionths of a gram per litre of water.”

It appears that a high threshold of 200 µg/L has been set in order to accommodate the addition of aluminium to drinking water as “aluminium salts are used at some water treatment plants as part of the clarification process to purify water” and/or because the level “is set to prevent any potential discolouration of the water in the mains and is not based on any concern for health.”

It is apparent, therefore, that the 200 µg/L standard is set for drinking water because aluminium is being used in the processing.

The same standard should not be applied to rainwater. We should not have any aluminium in our rainwater, but we have discovered aluminium levels ranging from below 10 µg/L to as high as 990 µg/L (with a mean of approximately 68 µg/L).

"The same standard should not be applied to rainwater." -- I agree with that. We typically don't drink rainwater, so we should not expect that it is drinking water quality.

Well, that's very easy to refute, as we have seen in other threads: soil contains Al, dust in the air contains soil, rainwater contains dust, so rain water will contain Al.

Perhaps we should encourage people to test a nice hot cup of tea too?

4.40 mg/l for black tea infusion. That's 4,400 µg/l, or more than four times higher than even the highest of their rainwater readings!

CP UK debunk their own claims. They claim that samples should be taken 100 miles away from a coal fired power station. There is nowhere on the mainland that distance away.
