Concerned About the Skies Above Us

I live near Montrose and I recently decided not to go outside to eat lunch as I was afraid of what I might be inhaling.

Though a recent Sunday was a gorgeous, clear day and the sky was clear blue the following day I saw jets, flying through the sky leaving trails of chemicals, criss-crossing the sky with the white plumes coming out of the back of the planes. They started in the morning and activity increased into the afternoon. Soon almost the entire sky was cloudy and my lungs began to hurt. I have noticed this happening quite a bit this past year but it has become more frequent. Often my nose will bleed and my sinuses get clogged after sprayings.

This is apparently happening in the U.S. and in other areas of the world where there are large populations of people. Are there others in Crescenta Valley who are noticing this? We all breathe the same air and I fear for my children. I do not know what is being sprayed from these jets or what the short or long-term effects may be. I began researching online and there are quite a few websites that have dedicated themselves to the subject; many people are very upset about this. A former senator from Arizona is trying to get them banned in her state after viewing a DVD documentary called “What in the World Are They Spraying?” A link shows a trailer of this documentary.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2i4n7wYpaI. I have not seen the full documentary yet myself; it was listed on a site I visited called http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/

One other site I visited had information on testing that has been done in various areas http://www.chemtrails911.com/.

Apparently some independent analysis has been done on the contents of these chemtrails which falls down into our water, on plants etc. Heavy metals like aluminum, barium and pathogens have shown up in these analyses and far exceed what is supposed to be allowable levels for the environment. These are toxic substances.

I think it’s time we all look at what is happening in our skies and find out why this is going on. Perhaps we should demand some tests be done so we know what we are dealing with.

Some authorities deny that anything is happening and are saying these are just contrails which is water vapor from the jets. The flaw in this concept is that contrails dissipate quickly; these trails do not. They spread out and get bigger and bigger and form clouds all over the sky.

I am writing as I believe that if enough people speak up and do something, perhaps we can get it stopped. I, for one, want my children to be able to live full lives and I feel it is my responsibility to protect them. Thank you for your paper and being there for the community.
