that has been around since 1996 accuses the Air Force of being
involved in spraying the US population with mysterious substances
and show various Air Force aircraft "releasing sprays" or
generating unusual contrail patterns. Several authors cite
an Air University research paper titled "Weather
as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025"
that suggests the Air Force is conducting weather modification
experiments. The purpose of that paper was part of a thesis
to outline a strategy for the use of a future weather modification
system to achieve military objectives and it does not reflect
current military policy, practice, or capability.
Force's policy is to observe and forecast the weather. The
Air Force is focused on observing and forecasting the weather
so the information can be used to support military operations.
The Air Force is not conducting any weather modification experiments
or programs and has no plans to do so in the future.

and accredited universities, scientific organizations, and
major media publications.

The View From the Ground
Long-lasting contrails are something new and they have abnormal
Contrails can remain visible for very long periods of time
with the lifetime a function of the temperature, humidity,
winds, and aircraft exhaust characteristics. Contrails can
form many shapes as they are dispersed by horizontal and vertical
wind shear. Sunlight refracted or reflected from contrails
can produce vibrant and eye-catching colors and patterns.
Observation and scientific analysis of contrails and their
duration date back to at least 1953.
Grid patterns of contrails in the sky are evidence of a systematic
The National Airspace System of the United States is orientated
in an east-west and north-south grid with aircraft flying
at designated 2000 foot increments of elevation. Contrails
formed by aircraft may appear to form a grid as the winds
disperse the contrails. More contrails are seen in recent
years due to the growth in the civil aviation market. The
FAA is responsible for the NAS and Air Force aircraft operate
under the same rules and procedures as civilian aircraft when
using the NAS.
There are reported outbreaks of illness after the appearance
There is no such thing as a "Chemtrail". Contrails
are safe and are a natural phenomenon. They pose no health
hazard of any kind. If there are massive outbreaks of illnesses,
your local health department should be able to tell you if
it is an abnormal event. Local health departments generally
network together when they start seeing problems. If there
is a problem, the CDC will get involved.
Samples taken have shown the presence of the "DOD patented"
bacteria pseudomonas fluorescens.
The bacteria claimed to be DOD developed and patented is actually
a common, naturally occurring bacteria. The US Patent Office
lists 181 patents involving pseudomonas fluorescens, none
of which are held by DOD.
