WeatherWise Sept/Oct 2002 CLARIFIES . . .. . .these so-called chemtrails are actually just normal contrails from jet aircraft.
However, many people continue to think otherwise and are convinced that chemtrails are the visual evidence of a top-secret scientific mission, in which the U.S. military is weaving chemical-laden contrails in the skies above us, causing respiratory and other health problems for unprotected people on the ground.

Contrails Linked to Temperature Changes
WHITEWATER, Wisconsin, August 8, 2002 (ENS) - Contrails from high flying jets may be helping to average out the world's high and low temperatures - making days cooler and nights warmer - concludes a report based on the almost plane free days after September 11.
David Travis, a climatologist at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater,(LINK) conducted a study that offers some of the first evidence for the climate changing effects of the wispy trails left by jets. His results appear to indicate that jet contrails - short for condensation trails - are leveling off "diurnal temperature ranges" in certain regions of North America, making average days cooler and nights warmer than normal.
The contrails and climate connection was almost impossible to quantify before the terrorist attacks of September 11 and the resulting three day shutdown of all commercial airline traffic. The satellite data from September 11-13 provided scientists with a view of almost contrail free skies for the first time in a half century.
Travis' research team, which includes Penn State University geographer Andrew Carleton and UW-Whitewater undergraduate Ryan Lauritsen, used satellite images to compare cloud cover from those three days to 30 years of data for mid-September. Then they reviewed daytime and nighttime surface air temperatures across North America collected from 4,000 weather stations.
The group calculated the 30 year climate norm for those three days, using temperature data from the same sources between 1971 and 2000. A final step was to calculate the "diurnal temperature range," which is the difference between the warmest spike during daytime and the coldest point of night.
When compared against the 30 year record, the group found that diurnal temperature ranges on September 11-13, 2001 expanded as much as three to five degrees Fahrenheit. That was more than double any random year to year variation over that time.
The researchers also found sharp regional differences in temperature change - ones that correspond closely with where contrails form. Contrails, which are formed by a combination of below freezing temperatures and high atmospheric moisture, are most common through the nation's midsection, the northeast and the northwest.
The biggest temperature changes, as much as five degrees, were in those regions.
"Scientists have been noticing unusual changes in diurnal temperatures for quite some time, but can't explain why," said Travis. "We're providing one possible explanation here. Maybe jet contrail coverage is one of the reasons for this shrinking temperature range."
Travis said the findings may complicate the global warming debate, since in some regions contrails offset the temperature increases predicted in global warming models. The study also underscores the point that not all climate drivers are global, as factors like contrails can make a difference on a regional scale.
The U.S. military first began contrail studies in the 1960s because of the fact that they give away fighter jet locations. Travis said there is no evidence contrails pollute, and some have argued that reduced diurnal temperature ranges could save heating and cooling costs in major cities.
But, Travis added, it would be harder to find more tangible, visible proof that human activity affects climate.
"Unlike greenhouse gases, we can all look up in the sky and see contrails and imagine how they might increase cloud coverage," Travis said.
The study appears in today's issue of the journal "Nature."

What EVERY "Chemtrail" Researcher should know about Relative Humidity at Flying Altitudes - January 23, 2002 LOOK WHAT'S NEW! In the cold air from about 26,000 to 42,000 feet high, the team found that standard sensors nearly always showed relative humidities ranging from about 10 percent to 30 percent. In contrast, more than half of the Snow White deployments showed areas of moisture at these altitudes with relative humidities from 90 percent to 100 percent - a strong sign of clouds.

THE IPCC HAS CONCEDED! LINK . . . the possibility that today's "record-breaking" temperatures may be at least partly caused by the Earth recovering from a relatively cold period in recent history. It's about time!
According to the April 28, 1975 issue of Newsweek,"the earth's climate seems to be cooling down."

The UN’s Global Warming Panel: The Biggest Liars on the Face of the Earth by Alan Caruba, National Anxiety Center, January 29, 2001
"Let’s understand something. The members of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change are not scientists. The constant media rubric that the IPCC is the voice of scientists is just plain wrong. They are representatives of various nations, i.e., bureaucrats, and their reports over the years about an impending global warming have been routinely revised up and down to fit the times. . . . .
Apparently the times now require a new report predicting that global temperatures could rise by more 10 degrees this century, the most rapid change in the last ten millennia and more than 60% higher than the same group predicted less than six years ago.
Let it be said as loudly as possible that the IPCC is the biggest bunch of liars on the face of the planet, constantly revising the dubious data they use to create the bogus computer models on which these idiotic predictions are based." WARNING SIGNS!
"What's missing in all these rolling network blackouts of dissent on the global-warming debate is any notion of how loony the environmental activists really are, and how obsessed they are with diminishing our freedoms."

I am on travel at the moment and do not have time to read all of the stuff on that page. I glanced at some of it and it appears to charge that we are all in some sort of conspiracy to promote global warming as some UN plot to take over the world? Anyway, I am a NASA scientist and helped write the Chapter 3 of the IPCC report including results from my own research. We are in this research strictly as a matter of understanding and quantifying the effects of aircraft on the atmosphere. We are not involved in any plot to take over the world or to promote global warming. I, for one am not convinced yet that global warming due to CO2 buildup is actually happening because there are many feedbacks in the climate system we do not understand. However, I recognize that warming due to CO2 increases is a potential threat just from the straight physics involved in the problem.
If anything, we toned down any potential threats in the IPCC report because they were too uncertain to be convincing at the time. They still are very uncertain.
It's time to play, "Stump the Watermelons!" Climate 'uncertainty' stumps UN - The IPCC says there is mounting evidence - but the science may need "revision. . ."

QUESTION! If the Greens have a problem with jet contrails and their possible effect on the atmosphere, why not just call a spade a spade?
ANSWER: The Greens appeal to working people who are exploited by capitalism and live without economic security. The Greens appeal to the most oppressed and marginalized sectors of society-to racially oppressed minorities, to immigrants, to sexual minorities."
"The Greens appeal to feminists who want to end once and for all the age-old subordination of women."
"These groups-concerned citizens, exploited workers, oppressed minorities, feminists-constitute a majority of society. The challenge for the Greens is to bring them together in a majoritarian coalition." This is what the Green Agenda is and in their own words.
Why would the Greens attempt to discredit the United States military? "The Greens understand that in a world of global corporations operating in global markets where US military forces will intervene to maintain corporate rule, no country, let alone any local jurisdiction, can long survive as a democratic island in a sea corporate dictatorship. The Greens are by necessity an international movement that coordinates its actions, develops common demands, and acts in solidarity to create a democratic globalization from below to replace today's corporate globalization from above."
MORE: "Greens support civil disobedience wholeheartedly when it is an effective tactic to advance the movements toward their goals."
TAKE HEED! "If the goal is to show militant and massive public support, one could organize a coalition of as many people and groups as possible in a public place to demonstrate against a policy and insist on an alternative. *LIKE A CHEMTRAIL (HOAX)WEBSITE AND MESSAGE BOARD* . . . .Most first-time participants, and those physically unable to deal with arrest and jail, usually do not wish to partake in acts of civil disobedience. To build broad movements, we must make it practical and comfortable for such people to participate." *LIKE FROM THEIR COMFY CHAIR IN FRONT OF THEIR COMPUTERS? HOW CONVENIENT!*
