What is normal? When you look at the skies, what do you expect to see? Do you look at the skies at all? Maybe we had better all start looking a bit closer, not for a cosmic answer to our plight as a species, but for what is clearly in front of our faces.

We have been curious about the trails left in the wake of aircraft for some time now. We think the whole "conspiracy theory" spin put on the issue of aerosol operations keeps serious inquiry at bay.

But we are an alternative publication, so we are bound to ask the questions our mainstream counterparts seem so unwilling to pursue. We present for you the information we have discovered since seriously considering the matter, especially in light of the demonstrable fact that we have noticed changes in our own health, which seem related to something in the air. Health-care professionals tell us they, too, have heard more complaints from locals related to respiratory problems.

We begin with a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document on display at, one of the major Web sites which provides links to Citizens Against Chemtrails US (CACTUS).

Aerosol Ops FAQ

Since 1998, U.S. Air Force tanker planes have been intensively spraying broad white plumes over virtually every major city and rural area in the United States and Canada. Chemtrail spray planes have also been sighted over England, Europe, Australia, Mexico, Bahamas, Brazil, Croatia, and Puerto Rico.

Whatís the difference between a jet contrail and a chemtrail?

According to the U.S. Air Force, jet contrails form above 33,000 feet when hot engine exhaust momentarily condenses ice crystals into pencil-thin vapor trails that quickly vanish like the wake behind a boat.

Chemtrails (CTs) look like contrails initially, but are much thicker, extend across the sky, and are often laid down in varying patterns of Xs, tic-tac-toe grids, crosshatched and parallel lines. Instead of quickly dissipating, chemtrails expand and drip feathers and mareís tails. in 30 minutes or less, they open into wispy formations, which join together, forming a thin white veil or a "fake cirrus-type cloud" that persists for hours.

Thousands of eyewitnesses -- including pilots, police officers and military personnel -- report seeing up to eight or more tankers laying chemtrails in X patterns, parallel rows, tic-tac-toe or crosshatched lines.

Since spraying intensified in 1998, the Centers for Disease Control recorded 59 weeks of epidemic fatalities from pneumonia and influenza-like illness (ILI). The CDC now says many of these deaths could be caused by some "unknown pathogen."

In August 2000, chemtrail watchers began to report "more normal" appearing or nearly invisible jet sprays. However, these reports go on to include cloud formations dripping the feathers and maresí tails just as the chemtrails do. Itís our belief that the operation has adjusted the chemtrail mix as word about the phenomenon is spreading and as more and more people are looking up. Observant chemtrail watchers continue to see the "fake cirrus-type clouds" on top of and surrounding real cumulus clouds.

Citizen requests for information are often ignored by national, state and local governments. Infrequent official explanations attribute this phenomenon to increased jet traffic. This does not explain why communities far from designated air routes are seeing numerous jets breaking civil air regulations, weaving outlandish aerial patterns that last all day.

Who is doing the spraying?

Witnesses have documented and photographed military KC-135s and KC-10s and white, unmarked jets. Airport personnel and pilots have also confirmed specific commercial airliners to be leaving the long-lasting chemtrails.

Whatís in the chemtrails, and why are they spraying us?

Thatís the $6 million question! There may be several programs working at the same time. Possibilities include atmospheric and weather modification and biowarfare. Many theorize that itís part of a clandestine operation to implement the New World Order by eliminating societyís "useless eaters" and the infirm and/or to reduce the population to a support level for the "elite." Originally, it was thought to be mass inoculation for possible biowarfare attack; however, this theory has been ruled out with the increase of sicknesses and illnesses in the CT paths.

In a taped interview with freelance radio reporter S.T. Brendt, an Air Traffic Control manager said he was told on as many as four occasions in March 2001 to re-route commercial air traffic around military aircraft taking part in an undisclosed aerial operation over the Northeastern Seaboard. Speaking on condition of strict anonymity as intense chemtrail activity continued overhead, the federal aviation source expressed concern over the classified nature of military operations repeatedly conducted at altitudes between 37,000 and 40,000 feet.

The ATC manager said he was ordered to divert incoming European air traffic away from the military planes. When asked why, he said, "I was told there was a miliary exercise in the area. Of course, they wouldnít give me any of the particulars." The initial FAA disclosure came on March 12, as mass aerial maneuvers saturated Northeastern U.S. skies with Xs, circular patterns and parallel lines characteristic of chemtrail activity reported by pilots, police officers and former military personnel across the United States.

Could (inventor of the hydrogen bomb) Edward Tellerís proposal to reduce global warming to the U.S. be involved? Tellerís proposal involves spraying minute aluminum particles to deflect the sunís harmful ultraviolet rays, but still allow the Earthís heat to rise through them. This seems to be supported by rainwater tests after heavy spraying in Espanola, Canada, which contained seven times the allowable limit of aluminum. In this instance, the areas with the least ultraviolet protection, as the Southwest, would be the heaviest sprayed. Most often, this does not seem to be the case.

Generally, spraying increases as clouds build. Chemtrails may be the reason that over half the world and over half the U.S. have been experiencing drought for the past two years. Witnesses have reported watching chemtrails fall through cumulus clouds, leaving the real clouds "skinny" and within a few minutes totally gone. Typically, storm clouds build and mix with the chem ingredients, resulting in a gray, uniform "mucky" sky that doesnít rain. The real clouds disappear, leaving behind the chem formations, which were on top of the storm system.

Barium salt mixtures are a large part of the mix. The Variable Terrain Radio Parabolic Equation (VTRPE) shows pilots what nearby radar systems can and cannot see under different terrain and atmospheric conditions. It was tested and perfected after aerosol barium titanate salt mixture was released from military aircraft, forming chemical trails in the atmosphere across America. Barium salts were also used in Libya, Panama and Desert Storm during the Gulf War, where they were sprayed and exploded overhead to make the people extremely sick and weak. Barium is a radioactive material that accelerates and magnifies the effects of other mix ingredients by altering the chemical structure of the other agents. A spectrum analysis reveals only the barium compounds and hides the "bad stuff" by placing a shell around it. After time, it releases the other agent.

What do the governments say about chemtrails?

No governmental agency of any country will confirm that spraying activity is occurring. Most often requests are ignored. The U.S. Air Force has explained that they routinely dump fuel over populated areas to reduce weight prior to landings. More recently, the Environmental Protection Agency states that it may be pesticide spraying. Generally, officials explain it away as increased commercial jet traffic. However, this does not explain why areas with no commercial flight path overhead are also seeing these long-lasting plumes. Some citizens have been told by government "to keep it quiet."

Why would our government authorize such a program when they live here, too?

Money talks and corporate dollars influence our legislators and officials. in 1997, the year of disasters, insurance companies paid billions in weather disaster-related claims. Teller stated that his weather modification program would cost only $1 billion per year. Research into a NWO takeover reveals a heavily funded and incredibly powerful elite group of individuals that more are afraid of or unwilling to go up against. We also know that informed citizens can take precautions to offset the effects of CT spraying by limiting time outdoors on spray days and by building their immune systems with vitamins, herbs, colloidal silver and other therapies.

Why do you think the cirrus clouds in the sky arenít real?

Cirrus clouds are high-altitude clouds, formed above 20,000 feet and consist of ice crystals. They precede a storm or are in the jet stream. Cumulus clouds are formed in lower altitudes, 6,500 to 20,000 feet. These two cloud formations are seen together at the lower altitudes of 9,000 to 15,000 feet in extreme drought conditions. This goes against the laws of nature. Also significant is the "white ground haze" that can be seen from horizon to horizon with clear blue sky overhead.

How long has this spraying been occurring?

Cloud books confirm that tests have been conducted since the 1960s. Old photographs show sporadic CTs dating to the early 1970s with the activity steadily increasing throughout the 1980s. Since 1998, citizens throughout the world have documented spray patterns on a nearly daily basis, with an average of one "clear" day per week. We have all become accustomed to these changes as theyíve been introduced bit by bit, and have presumed them to be normal. Younger generations have never seen normal weather and clouds.

Do they spray us here?

They have been spraying most areas intensely in the U.S., Canada, Europe and England since 1998, including areas with no commercial flight paths overhead. Recently, Australia, Mexico, South Africa, Bahamas, Puerto Rico and Croatia have reported chemtrail spraying.

Why should we be so concerned about chemtrails?

A "flu-like" epidemic is on the rise, which the Center for Disease Control says may be due to some "unknown pathogen." From their May 6, 2000 Influenza Summary Update, 11 out of every 100 newly dead people have died from this "influenza-like illness," but 99 percent of sick patients have tested negative for the flu.

Symptoms from chemtrail exposure:

Allergies, sore and blocked sinuses; dry, hacking, persistent cough; nosebleeds, blood in mucous; swollen, burning, teary eyes with mucous; flu-like, fever, sore throat; pneumonia, upper respiratory; mycoplasma infections; migraine or splitting headaches; pain in back of neck, particularly at the top of the spine, extremely stiff neck; disorientation, foggy brain, sudden dizziness; extreme fatigue, lethargy, inability to concentrate; loud ringing in your ears; depression, anxiety attacks; gastrointestinal distress, bloating; diarrhea, bloody stools; joint pain, aching joints and muscles; thirst (your pets, too!) or loss of appetite; loss of bladder control, tics or spasms; recurring fungal infections; metallic, oily or corrosive smell and taste.
