I Did Not Believe in “Chem-Trails” Until I Moved to Aspen, COSubmitted by TishaTCasida on Mon, 01/07/2013 - 10:57
Mountains don’t naturally get haze. Fog, yes – fog is a natural phenomenon caused by the moisture in the snow and rivers, and fog is very low-lying, close to its source. What I keep seeing in the sky, though, sure does not seem natural.
A haze covers the bright blue skies that are characteristic of the Rocky Mountains. Not just once in awhile; many times right before there is a prediction for moisture (so it seems). So, are they seeding the clouds? Snow is important to many industries up here, and seeding clouds is no conspiracy theory – that is real. What is in the dispersant? How could it affect the eco-system? Of all of the progressive places in our country, people should seem to be very concerned here in the Roaring Fork Valley, right? Our water supply is precious – so is the soil and air that we breathe. If anything is being is dispersed into the pristine blue skies around us, shouldn’t we, as a community, have a discussion about the potential side-effects of these dispersants entering our soil, water, and air?
I am going to be documenting this. I honestly did not believe too much in the whole concept of “chem-trails” (whatever the “chemical” in chem-trails may be), until I talked with some long-time residents of the Roaring Fork Valley and started to watch the patterns and frequency of these huge swaths of white take over the sky. I would still not have believed in it, except for the resulting haze that is like a shadow. The sun does not peek through, the blue sky is not blue – it is a sullen gray. The haze sticks around, and doesn’t leave. If it were just water dispersing in the sky, it would fade. These white trails don’t fade. They take away my blue sky – our blue sky.
Let’s have a discussion about being honest with our community and country. Let’s talk about what is being done – not in a fear-driven way, but in a common-sense way. Envisioning Dick Cheney flying an airplane spraying toxic metals is non-conducive to fixing the problem (although entertaining). What is going on and what are the side effects? Is there anything we can do about it? Who makes these decisions and if we have no power over those decision-makers (because unfortunately, we oftentimes don’t have a lot of power over the people who technically work for us (government)) – then what can we do to protect our health and our ecosystem?
Many thanks to the people who took the time to share with me (in a non-fear-based way) information about the blue sky.
