NONFICTION – Earth Science. Full color, printed on recycled paper. (This book was sent to members of the US Senate and House of Representatives.) As shown in the satellite photos in this report, much of the cloud cover around the Earth is created by jet aircraft traveling in the stratosphere. Dubbed “chemtrails” by spectators, millions of people in many countries have voiced concern and questions. -What are jet contrails and artificial clouds made … More >>

Contrails, Chemtrails & Artificial Clouds

    Joni Mitchell may sing about looking at clouds from both sides, but in this fascinating little book Dave Dahl actually does. He says that what we see from the ground are multiple illusions and unless we know what to look for we will not notice clouds formed by jets called “contrails”). The human eyes glancing upward for a minute or two doesn’t realize that the widening, moving band of tiny ice crystals following in the wake of aircraft, gradually form clouds that by evening can fill our sky. These chemical trails affect weather, climate change, global warming and our health. And they are growing dramatically in number. Did you know that when the US grounded all planes in 2001 between September 11 and 14 the global average temperature rose abruptly by 2 degrees?

    The author, a Navy veteran and former university teacher, carefully explains how these toxic stratospheric clouds absorb and re-emit solar energy, warming the stratosphere; and greenhouse gases introduced by jets into the upper atmosphere cause additional heat to be trapped, preventing its escape into space and ultimately warming the Earth, altering our climate. His presentation is objective, informative and makes excellent use of aerial photography, charts and graphs. This science in chewable bite size paragraphs and bullet points is an outstanding introduction for anyone interested in advocating on behalf of cleaner air and slowing global warming (and that should be all of us). It gives readers an excellent overview, glossary of terms and an extensive listing of web sites that are additional recourses.

    The last quarter of the book addresses air pollution and various alternatives to petroleum based fuel. While reminding us that the cubic feet of breathable air surrounding Earth is finite, Dahl asks, “Why did we ever think that burning over a 100 billion pounds of jet fuel each year is harmless?” Added to that are facts that from the American Lung Association that lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in both men and women in the United States. It causes more deaths than the next three most common ones combined (colon, breast and prostate) and between 1979 and 2002, the number of lung cancer deaths increased by 60 percent.

    Dave Dahl champions the development of biodiesel. But what can the reader do right now? Buy less stuff, turn things off, stay home, write his or her congressperson. The author is less clear about much beyond this. Unfortunately we are brainwashed by advertising to expect the quick fix, but a lack of foresight is what got us into this mess in the first place. So read this book. Recognizing the problem may be the best first step to some kind of answers. And next time you look up at those contrails or observe the cloud cover at twilight, realize what you see just may be our future closing in on us unless we commit to finding some solutions now.

    This book provides a wealth of information and, while it points to possibilities, it is a scientific and fact-based set of observations that allow the reader to draw their own conclusions. (More opinionated and current information is available by googling “artificial clouds.”)

    The author make a good point: to dismiss the dramatic sky cover provided by jets as “inadvertent” is to unscientifically choose your belief before examining the evidence.
