- Spring comes early to the Texas Gulf Coast and since
we've had very little winter to speak of this year, the main indicator
in the Houston area has been an unusual amount of overcast skies. Since
January we've seen exhausted cold fronts periodically push down from the
north, only to be pushed back again by warm moist air from the Gulf and
lots of clouds. After more than a year of chemtrail spraying, truly cloudless
blue skies have become so rare that they really stand out.
- One such day was Sunday before last, February 26. Because
I've been involved in a photo project to better identify spray planes,
I was delighted to awaken to perfect "seeing" weather. Our local
spraying group had been busy for many days, with spray plumes often visible
through breaks in the clouds, and the occasional taste of Ethylene Dibromide
drifting through the city. While the day before had seen some rain, there
was no sign of it this morning. Yet, for some reason, the spray crews seemed
to be sleeping-in. I was disappointed because clear weather would give
me some great photos and a chance to try out a new lens, yet the planes
were nowhere to be seen. I would just have to keep an eye on the sky to
see if they showed up later in the day.
- Perhaps it was my imagination, but a wonderful mood seemed
to be sweeping over the whole area and it seemed everyone wanted to be
outside. I was quickly caught up in spur of the moment plans to visit several
open-air markets in a search of great bargains in outdoor furniture and
the like, and discovered that twice the usual number of people were engaged
in the same pastime. The beautiful weather held for the whole day, with
warm Texas sunshine and a delightfully cool breeze from the north that
made it a joy to be outside. And not a chemtrail in sight the whole day.
Not even one!
- In fact, the breeze became cooler and a bit stronger
as the day progressed, and when we got home I finally checked the weather
situation to see what was actually happening. The previous day's rain had
signaled the arrival of cool air from the north, which had continued during
the day on Sunday. In fact, Sunday night actually got a little cool for
people who'd spent the day in T-shirts. The following day, warm moist air
from the Gulf would flow northward again, obliterating all traces of the
exhausted cold front but reforming the cloud cover that masked current
spraying operations so well. Still, from our point of view, the weather
picture was quite significant. After fifteen months of near continuous
chemical spraying activity over Houston and so many other major cities
as well, why was there not a single white line in the sky on that beautiful,
- Most readers will know that early last year I concluded
that the chemical spraying of civilian populations heralded a major event
in the near future. I assume that this event will be marked by the heavy
use of biologicals because decreased resistance to airborne infection is
the only known result of Ethylene Dibromide which seems relevant. (Decreased
fertility is gaining in significance as the program stretches out over
time.) Others have more hopeful interpretations but I cannot see any reason
for this other than wishful thinking. Since spraying operations have cost
billions of dollars at this point, I think it is safe to assume that we
are looking at an event designed to create geopolitical and economic change
of incredible magnitude.
- As this "event" gets closer, we are seeing
a sharp increase in what I can only call disinformation. I think that the
expected curve of public awareness was carefully calculated, with the conclusion
that not enough people would wake up to what is happening before it was
too late. However, with the explosive growth of the Internet chemtrail
awareness is reaching "critical mass" much too soon. There are
now too many people who can say, "We know what you are doing, and
when this is all over you will pay." At the same time a significant
disinformation campaign is underway here and in Europe to prevent this,
and keep as many people as possible confused about what is really happening.
- To understand the logic, lets go back to that beautiful
Sunday. I'm up at the ranch today, and can see a nice spray pattern to
the north over the city of Huntsville. Wind is from the west, so the spray
planes working Houston will be west of the city this morning, beyond my
horizon. If it shifts northward this afternoon they'll be up here and I'll
get out the camera. But on that particular, beautiful Sunday all spray
operations stopped, and there was not a single white line in the sky. Why?
- Cooler air was moving in that day so, according to the
disinformation campaign, those mysterious white lines in the sky should
have been more prevalent, and even longer lasting than usual. As most everyone
is now aware, the disinformation specialist will tell you that your eyes
and memory are lying to you, and we are all seeing a "natural"
phenomena called "contrails". Contrails are formed at high altitudes
(roughly five or six miles up and higher) when moisture in hot jet exhaust
freezes, leaving a trail of minute ice crystals that dissipates in a minute
or so but under extremely cold and still conditions can remain for longer
- Disinformation websites are actually posting pictures
of chemical spray plumes, and baldly telling everyone they are contrails.
Interestingly enough, in Europe it appears that people have a better eye
for distance and altitude than they do here, or better memories of what
contrails really look like, so the contrail story doesn't work so well.
Consequently, European disinformation channels are telling the people that
chemtrails are actually a pollution problem caused by a sudden and mysterious
conversion to high-polluting jet engines (the opposite is true), and what
must be a six-fold increase in commercial air traffic that apparently happened
overnight for no known reason. Here in the U.S. we would immediately dismiss
this story as nonsense, but struggle with imaginary ice crystals instead.
- So why would cooler temperatures in Houston cause the
disappearance of ice crystal formation in the upper atmosphere? Because
it's the wrong question. In fact, we saw no "contrails" that
day because spraying operations were halted. There were no contrails from
commercial air traffic simply because Houston almost NEVER experiences
contrails. There simply are very few, if any, high altitude air routes
that go over the city. If you will look at a map that shows the whole country
you will see why. Virtually all air traffic in our general neighborhood
is arriving or departing from one of our two major airports, and is at
altitudes too low to freeze anything at all. You can watch commercial flights
all day long with a simple pair of binoculars, and they never leave a trail
of any kind at all. Otherwise, the only explanation for the absence of
"contrails" amid cooler air would require that all air traffic
was grounded that day.
- NASA recently completed a landmark study of contrail
formation and behavior (wonder why?) and according to their results, the
sub-zero temperatures required are pretty awesome, at least to someone
who lives near the Gulf Coast. The chief scientist for the project has
written that when temperatures got any warmer than MINUS 35 degrees Centigrade,
they couldn't make a contrail form at all. To get a better handle on air
temperatures and altitudes I appealed to members of the chemtrail tracking
club for help, and got responses from two professional pilots that were
invaluable. First, I was directed to an excellent explanation of the way
that decreased air pressure causes a drop in temperature that can be calculated
by formula. Second, I was directed to the Winds Aloft Forecast, which is
a goldmine of information for anyone trying to understand spraying operations.
- Spraying activity was halted over Houston on February
26th, not because of air temperatures, but because winds at altitudes from
12,000 feet and below were too fast to allow useful concentrations of chemicals
to reach ground level in the city. In fact, the correspondence of wind
speeds and spray days is SO GOOD, I started to post predictions about whether
we would see spraying or not on the following day. Unfortunately, the Winds
Aloft Forecast itself is not very accurate beyond about twelve hours, so
I abandoned the effort. It worked if the winds followed the forecast, but
not if they didn't. It's right on the button for current data though, and
you can watch it's correspondence with spraying operations hold true, day
- The Winds Aloft Forecast is at http://www.awc-kc.noaa.gov/awc/awc-fd.html
- In most locations spraying activity is now at fever pitch
as the "event" moves closer. Consequently, I believe you will
observe that there is always spraying activity around major populated areas,
in some cases 24 hours a day, unless wind speeds in the critical zone from
ground level to 12,000 feet prevent it. This means that your work with
the Winds Aloft Forecast will be confirmed by days when the spraying stops,
rather than the opposite. You will also see that if wind speeds exceed
25 knots at 12,000 ft but are slower below that, the spray planes are likely
to operate at a slightly lower altitude as well, giving you better photo
opportunities if you are trying to catch the planes rather than the spray
plumes they leave behind.
- The winds aloft charts have a help function, or tutorial,
that explains the abbreviated notations. If you run in to difficulty, though,
drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll walk you through it.
- Once you've located the line of information that corresponds
to a city near your location, you will find that for various altitudes
you have not only the wind speed and direction, but the TEMPERATURE at
that altitude as well. Disinformation channels that are pushing the contrail
story believe that you cannot tell the difference between an airplane two
miles away and one that is five, six, or seven miles away. Consequently,
they don't expect you to be very firm in identifying a spray plane at 10,000
feet (2 miles) or 30,000 feet (5-6 miles). With a little practice and common
sense you can get pretty good at this, however. Drive by an airport and
see how much of a big jet on the ground you can see at two miles. Learn
the altitudes of traffic in and out of your airport and visually compare
commercial planes and spray planes. You can even use measured angles and
triangulation to get an excellent altitude reading, with two instruments
at least 500 feet apart and some familiarity with surveying math.
- Once you have a good idea of spraying altitude, which
is generally between 9-12,000 feet, you can check the temperatures on the
Winds Aloft chart to prove to yourself once and for all the contrail/ice
crystals story is a complete sham and total disinformation. Remember that
temperatures must be below -35 C on the chart to see even the most short
lived contrail form, and far below that to make one that lasts.
- Beyond the silliness of ice crystals and hitherto unknown
forms of pollution, what other forms of disinformation are we seeing? Some
is not disinformation at all, but simply confusion that I suspect is honest
although misleading. A case in point is the widely circulated report of
a current DARPA research project pointed at improved bio-war countermeasures.
Many people who understand full well that we are being sprayed on almost
a daily basis still cling to the hope that it must be for some "good
reason", despite the climbing death rate from various forms of upper
respiratory and other unusual diseases. Personally I have difficulty with
the idea that governments are willing to harm or kill people in small numbers
but not large numbers. It's never been true in the past, and I doubt that
in a political arena of almost total corruption it should suddenly be true
now. Be that as it may, the DARPA countermeasures project is a good case
of simple confusion.
- First, it is a CURRENT project. This automatically rules
it out, since full scale operations we see today must come from research
and experimentation considerably in the past. My guess would be that you
would have to look back more than ten years, before the reformulation of
jet fuel to include EDB which took place in 1991. But the important thing
to note is that the project documentation itself does not describe aerial
spraying at all. A few key words do not make a billion dollar spraying
program. In fact, it turns out that the hoped-for countermeasures are to
be used to protect troops in the field, who have only a few seconds warning
of a chemical or biological attack. Careful reading shows that the program
is focusing on a mechanism by which a thick mist of soap suds laced with
germicides could be blasted into the air, so thickly that all airborne
microorganisms would be coated, dragged to the ground, and killed. Actually
it's quite brilliant and might well save lives. It certainly has nothing
to do with aerial spraying of whole cities for months on end. Imagine!
Every time it rained, the whole city would start to foam!
- In fact, any sort of countermeasure theory simply won't
work. What happened to the people who were NOT sprayed and consequently
not protected, in the first month of the program. How about those who were
not protected in the second month, or the third or fourth? Did they all
die? No, of course not. They don't even have symptoms. In fact there is
no evidence of any current threat except for the spraying itself, and the
fact that our populations are more and more susceptible to airborne biological
agents. In the UK this year, so many people died from the flu that was
not flu, that bodies were stored in refrigerator trucks because the hospital
morgues could not handle the numbers.
- I suppose we should also look at the magical airborne
immunization program as well, but it is so short on facts that there is
little to talk about. Yes, there is current research on how this might
be done. No, there is no way it could be implemented in a program that
must have begun years ago. Presumably, if such a thing were possible, our
military would be using it now instead of injections of a dubious Anthrax
vaccine that is causing all kinds of trouble.
- Disinformation about an airborne vaccination program,
while perhaps well motivated, carries the message, "Go back to sleep".
This always makes me nervous, since it is so close to the message we get
from the media every day. It raises an interesting question, though. How
would they know which particular disease, and perhaps the particular strain
of that disease, to immunize against?
- While a sprayed vaccine is just wishful thinking for
now, the military vaccination program has a very odd quality to it and
some unanswered questions for sure. Equally puzzling is the similarity
between the denial of the existence of Gulf War Illness and the denial
of the existence of chemtrails. Both have been handled as absolute non-events
while at the same time being completely visible to anyone with their eyes
open. Perhaps the satellite photo below, showing the actual use of CHEMTRAILS
in the GULF WAR by US forces, links these two stories together? Were sick
and dying veterans actually the victims of friendly fire?
- This discussion of bad information is not intended to
discourage new ideas on the nature or purpose of chemtrails. Certainly
the more of us that are thinking, and doing a little digging here and there,
the more likely we are to run across answers. And debating the various
ideas can only serve to sharpen our reasoning skills. A case in point,
which I suspect to be disinformation, was the recent announcement by Michael
McDonnough, creator of Chemtrails.Org, that he had solved the chemtrails
riddle and we could all forget the whole thing.
- McDonnough's story, which I have difficulty following
and may not be stating correctly, is that he obtained the use of a computer
program available to the public to track commercial flights around the
country. On the day in question he fired up the program with its Internet
link and it reported two commercial flights in his area. For some reason
he waited until the program reported them gone, and then went outside to
see two chemtrails, which he captured on video and showed on his website.
From this he concluded that chemtrails are in fact contrails laid down
by commercial aircraft going about their normal business. Why this would
be a logical conclusion, since he did not even see the planes, is a mystery
- In an unusual twist, he also states that we are seeing
a lot more "contrails" lately because the air is now wetter.
This is truly amazing. If McDonnough can figure out how to freeze 1000
degree (F) jet exhaust by making it wet instead of cold, I'm sure there
are commercial applications worth millions. But I think he could just as
easily have said it was because we are all eating a lot more ice cream,
and made just as much sense. Air more humid? Where on earth did that come
from? Since normal humidity in Texas ranges up to 100% anyway, I wonder
what constitutes more? 110%? What that would feel like!
- But the real story was the software. I checked it out
and found that for a monthly fee it does indeed show most commercial flights
known to the FAA computers. However, the big news was that a lot of air
traffic is deliberately blocked out, by government request or mandate.
No flights with military or government designations are shown. Aircraft
with foreign registrations are only shown if they are a commercial airline,
and so on. In other words, McDonnough had no idea what was actually in
the sky at the time he was watching the screen.
- If he had run outside with a pair of binoculars and actually
identified the two commercial planes being reported, it might have made
a good starting point. Personally, I think he would observe that the commercial
flights were leaving no trails at all, the same as elsewhere. As I see
it, he really had no information at all on which to base any sort of conclusion.
Who knows what other planes were in the sky at the time? He certainly offered
nothing else - for instance, whether or not the timing and direction of
the planes matched the different ages and directions of the chemtrails.
- Chemtrails.Org appeared on the seen rather suddenly and
somewhat late in the game. As far as I can tell, McDonnough made an outstanding
effort to gather good photos and get as many people as possible to visit
his website. Then, after a relatively short term effort, we have this bizarre
conclusion. It is certainly disinformation because it clouds the whole
issue for anyone trying to find the truth, but is it deliberate? An embarrassingly
poor grasp of simple facts? A response to pressure of some kind? I doubt
that we will ever know.
- Deliberate chemtrail disinformation is not designed to
change the minds of anyone that is actually involved with investigation,
but to inject as much confusion as possible into those who are new to the
idea and just now trying to make sense of it all. Since the beginning,
early last year, there have been voices echoing a "party" line
that chemtrails were just nonsense and purely a "natural" phenomena.
At the time it was so obvious that we were talking about two different
things that I don't think anyone paid much attention to them. Having dealt
with several of these folks via e-mail conversation, I think my experience
might be useful in recognizing what is going on.
- Generally, the disinformation channel will provide a
great number of quotes from esoteric texts on atmospheric physics, all
about contrails. Or, if you are in Europe, it will probably be all about
the evils of pollution. You, if you are inclined, might respond that no,
what you are seeing with your own eyes does not fit the requirements for
contrails. Their response, however, will be more information about the
red herring, completely ignoring the points you put on the table. You may
think that the person is some sort of retired academic, having difficulty
going outside the bounds of a comfortable field of study. So you try again,
asking how air that is above freezing could at the same time freeze jet
exhaust, or why aircraft were going from one town to the next, lingering
at each one to make a fancy pattern in the sky. Or why an unusually low
spray pattern was burning everyone's eyes with those pesky kerosene-smelling
ice crystals? And of course all you will get back is the same stuff you
got to begin with. The disinformation source will REFUSE TO DISCUSS any
of the key points that distinguish the intensive aerial spraying of population
centers from the red herring, be it contrails or pollution.
- A relatively new factor, in an attempt to explain why
so many people are apparently lying about what they see with their own
eyes, is to raise dark hints that someone is making a lot of money from
chemtrails. I can't imagine how, or who this might be, but hope they will
pin it down soon. I want to apply for my share, and I'm sure that many
others who have put long hours into this mystery will want to do the same!
- If you are like me, you will at first be puzzled by the
distinct lack of communication. Then you will conclude that the man is
simply stupid, perhaps even senile, and cannot grasp the basic issues.
Later, you may decide that you were the stupid one for wasting your time
and that's really what they wanted in the first place.. Finally, you may
look again and realize that you were fooled into believing two opposite
concepts: 1) that the person is fairly sharp because they have marshaled
a great deal if information about the false target, some of it seemingly
very difficult to follow, and because they have been able to write well
and /or put up a nice logically designed website. And 2), that they are
abysmally stupid because they cannot grasp the key issues. (You may notice
this is the same set of beliefs that we are given at birth about our current
- Needless to say, you cannot have it both ways and must
eventually pick one of the two. Are they abysmally stupid or sharp as foxes,
and dedicated to their assigned task? Regardless of their efforts, however,
in the U.S. it is too little and too late. Much more often now, when I
ask a stranger if he or she knows what that spray plane is doing overhead,
the answer is "Yes, they are spraying something. They call them chemtrails,
- From Michael McDonnough
- I have read all of Ken Welch's material and he is only
parroting what others have said and does not establish any facts or reveal
any new evidence to explain chemtrails. He is very soft on the science
side for certain. If Welch could not follow my reasoning he should have
ask for me to explain it to him in terms he was familiar with.
- For what ever reason perhaps because my conclusions offended
him in some way Ken Welsh has decided to attack me in as public and offending
of a way as he could. Perhaps he was unable to follow my reasoning and
has failed to see the logic or reasoning that I have put forth on the
conclusion page. He certainly could not have been thinking that this attack
against me would go unnoticed or unchallenged.
- Instead of coming to me and speaking to me to get my
views and understand my reasoning he has decided to use this forum of
Sightings to attack me, call me stupid, and a disinformationist, and or
an outright fraud.
- It was like he was going out of his way to put me down
and belittle me.
- For one thing he stated that my observation was flawed
and that is simply ridiculous and without foundation. I was just outside
before I logged on to Flight Explorer and I had been watching the sky
and it had no contrails at all before my observation took place. I have
a big bay window that faces in the direction of the flight path that the
planes took. I not only saw but heard them pass over and I was watching
the screen just before and after.
- This is a heavily trafficked air corridor and I am familiar
with just where planes heading in or out of DFW or Houston pass over in
this airspace. I work from my home but I am not home bound. I walk and
ride my bike everyday and always carry a camera or video with me.
- I am a trained observer and my abilities to discern what
I see and measure my world are expert. I was raised around Airforce bases
all of my life and have flown with my father who was a pilot since I was
old enough to reach the rudder peddles. I know airplanes and I can determine
altitudes very well with a glance.
- Further to explain about global warming and its effects
on the atmosphere. It does not take a genius IQ to figure out that with
hotter overall global temperatures that have been recorded, and with polar
ice caps melting at an alarming rate that there is simply more water vapor
suspended in our air as a result.
- It is also not that difficult to follow that this will
create more cloud cover with the increase in suspended water vapor. There
is also a lot more suspended particulate in the air due to a number of
sources and this increases the balance in favor of added cloud creating
- Jet fuel also contains agents designed to attract water
that might get into the tanks and binds it so that it will not foul up
the combustion process in the engine. When these agents are released into
the atmosphere they tend to continue to attract water vapor. These fuel
drying agents have more to do with chemtrails then you may realize. This
is likely a major factor with persistence of contrails.
- The Earth is a lot bigger and more complex place then
Ken Welch seems able to fully perceive. The atmosphere has been studied
for years by NASA and they have found that contrails are on the increase.
This impact has been studied with a lot better instruments then your eyes
or your wild imagination. They have certainly produced more science on
the subject then Ken Welch's web page will likely ever contain.
- If you read my conclusion page it clearly states that
I think there is something going on more then just persistent contrails.
I am a lot more critical and scientific in my reasoning then most true
believers but I am not without doubt and questions of my own. I also have
my suspicions and a general distrust of the government and all of their
black-ops world. I just simply will not spout what may be my baseless
fears to the general public.
- Ken Welsh also seems to intone that I have rallied a
lot of people and have attracted a lot of attention to my web site. without
access to my server logs and my email conversations you would have a very
hard time knowing that information at all. There is no counter on any of
my pages that tell you how many people have visited my site. So how exactly
does Ken come to this conclusion. Again this shows his lack of reasoning.
His distrust of anyone who does not share his particular view of the world
is quite obvious.
- Since he does nothing but parrot the words and writings
of others who is really providing the disinformation here. At the very
least my site shows that I am taking a serious approach to this investigation
and coming up with my own information. Right or wrong at least my site
represents what I have discovered and not just a collection of stories
and pictures from others.
- My message board is now the largest part of my site.
The system time and date stamps every report that comes in. It allows
pictures to be directly uploaded on the system to be instantly viewed
by everyone. It has grown to 46MB. All in all my site represents a great
deal of work and personal sacrifice. I am the only one that is working
on this site and created all the html and graphics you see, I installed
all the CGI scripts and I am constantly working on and monitoring this
site in real time.
- I came up with the conclusion page mainly to share what
my personal views are with the public so I can move on to other matters
that are just as important to me as chemtrails. Maybe it would be fair
to say that I have jumped to some conclusions and if Ken had left it at
that instead of this personal attack there would be nothing but musing
and agreement from me. After all I do have to work and I am not writing
a scary story about chemtrails to sell just yet.
- I have just taken some of the elusive low altitude chemtrail
pictures and I am working on how to add them to the site. For now they
are just uploaded to the chemtrails.org forum area under the New Photos
section. Chemtrails.org is just under 100MB of data, photos, video, real
time reporting area, and chat area. It has been a huge amount of work
and effort on my part and I will never be paid for it except for I hope
the final telling of the truth and disclosure of what is really going
- To have my hard work put down by this man Ken Welch who
does not know me and has never contacted me or ever ask me about my conclusions
or ask me to explain them to him is frankly insluting, slanderous and
