It claims to show a comparison between two days forecast as "Partly Cloudy" from 1990 and 2014, to illustrate how much the skies have changed due to "chemtrails".

Unfortunately it shows nothing of the sort. The photos are actually from 2011 and 2012, and from totally different places: Long Island, New York, and London, England.

Really what we have here is just cherry picking. Some days have lots of contrails, some days have none. Some days have high altitude clouds like cirrus, some have more low altitude like cumumlus. Here's the weather around Kew Bridge last week, May 20th, 2014.

And here's the day before:

And the week before that:

The weather is not changing with "Chemtrails". Just some days you get contrails, and some days you do not. If you look at the supposed 1994 location, the Long Island. Most of the photos you see in recent years will be nice blue skies. The "Chemtrail" theorists are used to seeing contrails in photos, because they constantly seek them out. But there really aren't that many.

What's the best way to find the first use and originator of the image?
Google image gave me this twitter link
https://twitter.com/EquilMedia
From 29th of April
which then had a retweeted post
from the 6th
of April for the earliest use, but is this an accurate search?
Tineye returned no results.

The second image there:
chemtrails2.jpg

Is quite possibly older than the first. It dates back to at least 2008. It was used as the background for this:

The difference between the first (summer) picture's colors and the second (winter - notice the trees) picture's pallette is an interesting and subtle contrast. It reminds me of the before-and-after diet pictures where the person is frowning and the intensity is dialed down in the before, and smiling with the color intensity cranked up in the after.

I just was taking a walk on the riverfront today and remembered this thread. Here is a photo today of the same view as 11947700_10206365142321700_1307814123532427549_o.jpg the scene at the top.
