Perhaps Al Gore, while flying all over the world to environmental summits; was changing the weather more than he knew?
He was busy inventing the internet at the time.

No; we tried that. Both me and retired school teacher that I drove truck with thought about trying my polarized glasses at a 90 degree angle. It was not cumulous clouds on the horizon. It was wispy clouds rising. I/we did not know if it had something to do with the particles emitted from the jet engines that, when they were flying, helped condensate the moisture? Like I said; I tried to research it - but I am not a good researcher. I checked all the national weather sites that I knew about.

I still think that it would be a worthwhile research project. The biggest problem is trying to find the old archives that might shed some light on the subject. I just found the following link that kind of supports my observations (although nobody mentioned looking at the skies with polarized glasses): https://globalnews.ca/news/2934513/e...ge-experiment/. Play that first YouTube video; it is interesting to see how many planes were grounded and how quick our skies changed.

Interesting article - hadn't heard of the effect on temperature before. The wispy clouds sound like cirrus; one possibility that comes to mind is, if there are a lot of contrails they will use up a lot of moisture in the atmosphere when forming, which could leave less moisture for cirrus to form.

Actually they looked more line Cirrocumulus clouds; but they only occur at around 39,000 ft. Cirrus clouds are around 20,000 ft. But what we were observing was much closer to the ground; some I would have guessed at just a few hundred feet above the ground. But we did not get out and measure (if it was even possible to measure); we had to keep our wheels turning to rake in the big bucks! We were averaging about 5,400 miles/week; so we did cover a good portion of our Country.
