New study suggests chemtrials conspiracy theory is not true. It lacks any solid proof.

World’s leading atmospheric scientists have finally come to the conclusion that chemtrials conspiracy theory is not real and chemtrials are just common clouds of gas not trails of harmful chemicals.

The so-called chemtrials are long lasting trails left in the sky by high flying aircrafts, but for some they are harmful chemicals sprayed deliberately with sinister intent. In other words, chemtrials are believed to be the evidence of a secret large-scale spraying program.

A combined team of researchers fromthe University of California and Carnegie Institution for Science conducted a survey to find out whether chemtrials conspiracy is true or whether it’s just a well-crafted story.

A total of 77 atmospheric chemists and geochemists were involved in the survey and almost all of them said they had not encountered evidence of a secret spraying program, categorically denying the idea of a cover up.

“We wanted to establish a scientific record on the topic of secret atmospheric spraying programs for the benefit of those in the public who haven't made up their minds," said Steven Davis from UC Irvine. "The experts we surveyed resoundingly rejected contrail photographs and test results as evidence of a large-scale atmospheric conspiracy.”

Chemtrials are basically water-based contrails that are emitted from jet engines but a segment of society firmly believes that these trails contain not just water vapors but harmful chemicals like strontium, barium and aluminum too which are intentionally released into the air by governments or organizations to fulfill a menacing plan.

The chemtrials conspiracy theory was started in 1996 and drew considerable attention despite the fact it lacked solid evidences. The so-called chemtrials can be clearly seen from the ground every time aircrafts fly high in the sky.

“Despite the persistence of erroneous theories about atmospheric chemical spraying programs, until now there were no peer-reviewed academic studies showing that what some people think are chemtrails are just ordinary contrails,” said co-author Ken Caldeira from Carnegie institution.

“Our survey found little agreement in the scientific community with claims that the government, the military, airlines and others are colluding in a widespread, nefarious program to poison the planet from the skies.”
