Contrails or chemtrails?

Some residents of the Bishop area have lately complained about jet airplane contrails in the sky and the belief that chemical products or some type of haze may hang in the Eastern Sierra skies as a result. The Air Pollution Control District looked into it.

Andrea Pucci of Bishop contacted APCD Director Ted Schade to say that she has seen and believes planes at high elevation are flying back and forth in all directions for a matter of hours, leaving rectangular patterns formed by “aerosol spraying.” Pucci suggested that the planes were engaged in spraying of chemicals. She pressed Schade for answers.

Director Schade did investigate. He said that he and his staff spoke to LADWP, Fish and Game and the Forest Service about spraying over the Sierra. He said none of those agencies was engaged in any spraying activity. Schade said he also checked the APCD particulate matter monitoring stations and “found nothing to indicate that any peaks of particulate matter had been measured at ground level during the periods…of concern.”

Schade said he believes the patterns observed were normal jet condensation trails or contrails that occur in low-wind conditions. Ms. Pucci pointed to information about chemtrails. Schade said the theories have not been peer-reviewed in reputable scientific journals. Ms. Pucci said that the haze in the sky has interfered with her passive solar home. She pointed to the repeated passage of planes.

Beyond theories, Schade did say that Great Basin Air Pollution Control District only has authority over stationary sources and no authority over jet plane activity and high altitude pollution sources. He suggested the California Air Resources Board would have that jurisdiction.

Clearly Geoengineering is taking place . Anyone who doesn’t see it is either blind, dumb, or doesn’t care. FYI . Contrails come out of jet engines. The trails which form the grid patterns are coming out of a separate device. Ask Kristen Meghan 9 year Air Force toxicologist who tested… Read more »

Judging by the quality of comments on this thread, I arrive the obvious conclusion: mind-altering chemicals are indeed being emitted by these planes onto the people of the Eastern Sierra.

It’s not “chemtrails” it’s contrails — for condensation trails. That’s just the moisture in the engine exhaust that condenses in the cold air at that altitude.

I’d be more worried about your smart meter reporting on which TV shows you are watching….

LOL true Ken .. but they inject the aluminum oxide into the jet exhaust trail, so the condensation holds it there until it contacts with the molecules in the atmosphere, to change the weather .. so I have been told. I’m not worried about it though .. I wouldn’t worry… Read more »

I would be more concerned by the contrail pollution!?!
What is the basic interaction of those very real ever present pollutants?
How much of those particulates make it to ground level?
We are living at high elevations here, after all.

First of all, contrails do not contain particulate matter. Furthermore, the contrails themselves don’t contain any pollutants. The actual trail of fog you see is nothing more than water vapor, which is a by-product of jet fuel combustion. That is not to say exhaust from planes doesn’t pollute as it… Read more »

Vapor is thr direct result of hot exhaust coming in contact with cold air .. which causes the vapor .. at the basic level .. it is like when you breath out on a cold day .. isn’t it?

I understand your position as a news agency wanting to report what people are saying. However, not everything people say is worth reporting. Sometimes things people say are irrelevant. Any person with even a basic understanding of the interaction between the atmosphere and pollutants would immediately see this as erroneous.… Read more »
