In over a decade Raleigh's skyway has grown congested with planes releasing lengthy white lines fanning out into basking cloud formations and patterns. Much like the contrail accounts, the chemtrail theory of alleged artificial clouds could hold more water than answers. So, what's the status on Wake County's stratus [or cirrus] clouds? Are the white lines over Raleigh and neighboring towns persistant contrails or existing chemtrails?
Raleigh residents worry little over the beautiful white soft cotton clouds appearing both here and there. A person who focuses on their own life may look down without questioning the heavens as the contrail skeptic may look up with chemistry at mind. And then comes the undecided with the proud few who believe chemtrail and contrails should be explored on nature hikes rather than online.
What are chemtrails?
Chemtrails refer to the dispersant of chemicals in a line or trail formation [chemical trails]. Chemtrails came be released from planes [or jets]. Aerial sprayers release chemicals forming a chemtrail.
Chemtrail planes are described as atmospheric crop dusters, cloud seeders, potential givers of certain [high] levels of barium, aluminum salts, polymer fibers, thorium, and other dangerous chemicals [Ohio.com / Beacon Journal].
Cloud seeding falls under weather manipulation and modification. If you are new to cloud seeding it is good to begin with an old fashioned cloud seeding media report.
Wral's 2009 report titled "Man-Made snowstorm traps Raleigh tourists in China" speaks for itself. China got a little carried away on seeding the clouds over Beijing. 100 business executives and Raleigh politicians were stuck in the Beijing airport for 13 whole hours. They arrived back home eventually. In the report it does state the nature in how the snowstorm became overwhelming -- by cloud seeding.
Reports of cloud seeding, weather modification and manipulation [weather control] continue to surface. The far more intense and radical theories include sensors or transmitters, pulse altering human behavior, hidden viruses and genetic manipulation of cells. Newton's Law (what goes up, must come down) seems to allow humans to blame everything under the sun.
Yes, it sounds like H.G. Wells. Or a new intro into The Twilight Zone.
Whether you blame the sky or not, it appears most everyone else just blames HAARP.
HAARP, who goes there? Just one of the government agencies who could pull off an amazing range of sky projects including electrically conductive material cloud seeding and massive electromagnetic superweapons.
Multiple conspiracy theory sites display well rounded informative cases against HAARP, High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program [Alaska, main facility]. HAARP is a powerhouse funded by the most prominant U.S. military sectors - US Navy [main source], US Airforce, University of Alaska, and DARPA, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
HAARP was created in 1990 and assures that in no way they do classified. According to HAARP [we repeat, according to HAARP] they will not hold anything back from the public in a classified fashion. The field of research in HAARP focuses on the ionosphere, otherwise known as the upper atmosphere.
HAARP's high powered radio frequency transmitter is known as the Ionosphere Research Instrument (IRI). With the IRI, fluxgate magnetometer, VHF and UHF radar [RIP rabbit ears] as the list continues including 180 IRI antennas [15 columns, 12 rows] HAARP proves the world of frequency [and etc] remains at their fingertips. American citizens are not dense to this reality.
HAARP has been accused of starting natural disasters, poisoning the sky, weather manipulation and tampering, invasion of privacy through frequency and worse [to name a few]. But there still remains lack of proof that HAARP is behind many of the alleged chemtrails, disasters or other unfortunate scenarios.
Some skeptics claim that H.R. 2977, Space Preservation Act of 2001, proves chemtrails exist. Read the entire Space Preservation Act of 2001 and be the judge. You can find the word "chemical" multiple times but "chemtrails" is not mentioned once. And in 2011 the UN allegedly banned the use of chemtrails but that too lacks the use of the word "chemtrails" - so, what's the new word?
And where's the trust?
The 1996 memorandum called Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025, a research paper on future strategic weather plans in order for the U.S. military to gain absolute dominance over the weather in 2025, has chemtrail activists and Operation Northwoods researchers nervous.
Operation Northwoods was a plan drafted to justify invading Cuba during the 1960s. The plan included ellaborate mock terrorist plane attacks inside of the U.S. and terrorist attacks against U.S. military facilities and against civilians [collateral damage]. The goal was to pin it all on Cuba.
Operation Northwoods [in connection with Operation Mongoose] was noted as being, back then, the most corrupt plan the U.S. government could come up with. It is now 2011, creative minds advance. The military allegedly ditched the idea, fired the guy who mapped it out and pretended as if it were a crazy idea. Operation Northwoods is the closest plan drafted that mirrors that of September 11, 2001 claims some theorists. And the world is full of theorists.
Read the March 13, 1962 Operation Northwoods detailed memorandum on PDF.
And that is why you may have heard claims that the Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025 could become a reality.
The above chemtrail information only scratches the surface of chemtrails, the possibilities, the fears. Activists decided long ago that if chemtrailists were going to be kept cloudy secrets then their opposition would spray electronic protests across the Internet.
And in the other corner we have contrails.
Contrails, condensation trails, are formed as hot exhaust gases begin cooling in the open air [post release]. Most have been taught that contrails are short but that is not entirely accurate as you will find. Contrails are said to protect Earth and deflect harmful sun rays back from which they came. There is a fear in a lack of contrails. Without cloud cover who knows if we will cook. Most are not willing to find out the hard way. For the most part contrails are simply sky scrapers tackling a certain process while in mid-air.
According to Britannica [dictionary]:
"On rare occasions, when the air is nearly saturated with water vapour, air circulation at the wing tips of an airplane may cause sufficient pressure and temperature reductions to cause cloud streamers to form."
On rare occasions? If you do not know what sublimation is, it is time to learn.
Sublimation skips the liquid process and transitions from a gas to a solid. It occurs with contrails. If the air is over saturated, otherwise known as supersaturated, some of the gas remains unable to transition at that time. Meaning, contrail cirrus clouds can stick around for up to hours depending upon whether ice crystals form.
Raleigh has seen those clouds before. The long, lingering, lengthy cirrus viewed by casual tolerance. Question is, could you spot a chemtrail from a contrail if you witnessed one?
Photos of chemtrails and contrails vary. Or do they? View the four photo links below and experience the comparisons.
Chemtrail sky [ProLiberty.com] in a 2004 documented NASA photo [Georgia].
Contrail sky [NASA] in the same 2004 documented NASA photo [Georgia].
This time size has nothing to do with it.
Pro Liberty's photo introduction is scary as the red flags wave in an alert. The short description includes NASA's true intent to note contrails. As we are sure of Pro Liberty's true intent to note chemtrails.
The NASA photo of Georgia, in our view, does appear to be riddled with random attacks by fingernail scratches as NASA carries merit on specific location, satisfactory information with no signs of red flags. The photo was released on Oct. 13, 2004 / NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day.
Raleigh has some good areas with a visible open sky such as at the end of Lake Wheeler Road towards the city or at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds. City of Oaks [Raleigh] hugs Cary. Cary has even more open locations for better sky viewing.
Raleigh, N.C. 3/6/2011 -- A.M. Hours:
During the A.M. hours the sky remained blue for the most part with light natural clouds. Before departing to an appointment in Cary [neighboring town] a plane with a not-so-impressive lengthy tail was spotted in Raleigh. As I headed towards U.S. 1 South I noted the not-so-impressive line was turning quite impressive.
Cary, N.C. 3/6/2011 -- P.M. Hours:
[12:30] Trails from a plane created two white crossing lines with an uneven parallel line aligning without contact. The plane was visibly leaving behind another well noted white line that stretched across the Cary sky. 4 white lines streaming out of the tailend of the plane appeared visible by camera eye [Nikon L110 15x / photo included].
[12:40] Spreading occurs at the tail of the line appearing like soft cotton.
[12:45] The mid-section of the trail spread in the same fashion to reach the fanning position of the tail. Meaning, the spread began from the end and worked its way towards the plane's tail without actually spreading to the tail. Clouds appear to be forming in a fanned out formation as the source, the white line, becomes a part of the blended scenic view.
The lines could have been released by the same plane making u-turns out of visual contact. This has not been confirmed. However, it was noticed that the plane would cross then come back the other way and cross again as if it were a one man job. By late afternoon Raleigh and Cary experienced full cloud cover.
The final question. Is the photograph taken of the plane's release chemtrail or contrail or has the Wake County sky been chem-punk'd?
Conclusion: After deep consideration of all areas, including legnth of the plane's trail, time of the day, sun positioning, weather conditions and area visuals including the combination of further details on chemtrail / contrail facts and information we can conclude one thing.
Whether a person believes them to be chemtrail or contrail is not as important as freedom of speech and freedom of choice. And on a common ground everyone can agree that there are lines in the sky. The same lines some research. The same lines others ignore. The same lines that brings us together today.
The plane in the photo above, most likely, is of a contrail release. The fact that I took a photo at 15x as the plane views at close range does bring up a new debate. Perhaps it is not what is coming from the plane that is as dangerous as the altitude.
Even Raleigh's sky has limits.
