Are there a lot of chem trails in Colorado?

I was just browsing towns and saw this picture in Rye.

Would you say this is typical, or are the skies usually clear of them.

I don't see these very often over the Loveland / Ft. Collins area.

What the heck is a "chem trail"? Do you mean "contrail" as in clouds from jets flying overhead?

"chemtrails" came out of a conspiracy theory that says the trails coming out of airplanes aren’t actually “contrails” but secret government dumping of some sort of chemical agent for a variety of different reasons such as weather modification, biological warfare or a way for the military to create a cheap wireless network. Personally I think it is a bunch of hooplah.

Now to answer the question, I remember as a kid I would lie out on the lawn and watch the contrails overhead. I would always tell myself as soon as there wasn’t one in the sky anymore I would stop watching. I could lay outside for hours without a moment when there wasn’t still a contrail. So yes, there are lots of contrails in Colorado. I did grow up in Denver though, I don’t know if that makes a difference, maybe in CS or Ft Collins there aren’t many.

Default Thought it was interesting, thought I'd share...

I used to live close by an Air Force Base, where the planes took off at all hours. I never knew what they were called. I would watch them in the sky for hours too.

Contrail
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia...

"Contrails are condensation trails (sometimes vapour trails): artificial cirrus clouds made by the exhaust of aircraft engines or wingtip vortices which precipitate a stream of tiny ice crystals in moist, frigid upper air. Contrary to appearances, they are not pollution as such."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contrail
This site has interesting photos with it. Enjoy!

You can find a lot about chem trails in the search engines. Here is a definition that I found:

"Definition of a contrail: A contrail occurs when a plane travels at a high altitude (about 30,000 ft. or more) and compresses the air into a water vapor or ice crystals through jet engines or the wing tips pushing through the air. This trail disappears after a minute or so due to evaporation, because it's water.

"Definition of a chemtrail: A chemtrail is very different from a contrail. At first a chemtrail might look a bit like a contrail. However, instead of disappearing like a contrail does, a chemtrail just keeps spreading out and forming a hazy cloud bank. These trails traverse the whole sky and stay for up to around five or even eight hours.

"It is believed chemtrails are composed at least in part by an oil based substance of unknown content that is actually being sprayed from jets on populated areas. It has also been found that some chemtrails contain unknown biological components. There are many reports of increased diseases, especially lung diseases, in areas where there are chemtrails."

I've been looking around the CS area so this is of particular interest to me when I move.

Thanks for the feedback.

Aha! Another one of those nasty "government" conspiracies - spraying us unsuspecting citizens with pollution and biochemicals. . . . I think we have enough everyday pollution to deal with without concerning ourselves with supposed overhead pollution, that's for sure.

You can always use a bit more pollution.

After all, where else would they put it.

Hi,

I'm looking for a place where there are never any clouds, since I found an article on the internet that says that clouds are really part of a government conspiracy. Can anyone help me?
