Fairfax Prepares Anti-Chemtrail Resolution

What do you think of the chemical contrail theory?

At its Jan. 11 meeting, the Fairfax Town Council considered and decided to bring back next month a resolution condemning aerial geo-engineering, more commonly referred to as chemtrails, and declaring the town a chemtrail-free zone.

As an extensive article in The Pacific Sun explained on Friday, chemtrails are believed to be chemicals sprayed from jet planes and can be seen leaving large trails in the sky on a regular basis. Believers argue that these trails are different than standard contrails left by regular jets that emit condensation at high altitudes.

"You need only look up at the sky on any given day and watch what's happening," said former Councilman Lew Tremaine, who had originally proposed bringing the item to the Fairfax Town Council, but because he wasn't able to before his retirement, Mayor Pam Hartwell-Herrero sponsored the issue and resolution.

Tremaine went on to say that he believes the chemtrails are aluminum being used to seed clouds. He said he's seen an increase in aluminum in the water supply over the years, as well.

Supporters of the issue -- as detailed in The Pacific Sun article -- point out that geo-engineering, or weather modification, and seeding of clouds has been acknowledged and discussed at length in mainstream media. When you can look up and see large, long-lasting chemtrails behind jet planes in the sky, the argument goes, it is this cloud-seeding that is taking place.

"They say we go and spray stuff out of jet airplanes; we're able to manipulate weather. They make no bones about it," said Peter Kirby at the council meeting. Kirby is a San Rafael resident, who with Fairfax resident Valeri Hood brought the issue to the council. "They’re talking on and on and on about this and then you look up in the sky and there’s these X's and grids and circles and things."

For most of the believers, the simplest argument is to look up in the sky and see what the jet trails are leaving behind. A video of chemtrails from YouTube can be seen at right. You can also watch a Discovery Channel special about the controversial subject at right.

The FAA's response in the Pacific Sun article and repeatedly whenever the issue comes up: there is no such thing as chemtrails. These are simply regular jet contrails.

It is because of the conspiracy and fringe connotations that come with the term "chemtrail" that the Fairfax Town Council is revising the resolution to refer to "geo-engineering" instead.

For years, Diane Hoffman said, she thought it was ridiculous too. But, then she started paying attention. "I didn’t take the time to really pay attention and the last year or two I spent a lot of time looking at the sky – there is something going on that doesn’t seem natural at all."

Of course, that doesn't cut it for the skeptics, who think Fairfax is overstepping its bounds.

Fairfax resident Jory Prum argued at the start of the meeting that the resolution will "damage our reputation" as a town. Prum also, mockingly, urged the council to pass a resolution banning fire-breathing dragons from town.

"It's at least as important as the other resolutions you've passed," said Cindy Ross of the joke fire-breathing dragon ban. "After you're done with your busy work chasing mythical beasts, then I'd like you to look at crosswalks."

Do you think the council should take a position on geo-engineering and chemtrails?

Stunning list, Valeri.

May be a "stunning" list, but it still doesn't prove anything, nor does it have to do with the Town of Fairfax taking a stand on "chemtrails", especially since the original resolution presented for consideration by the Fairfax Town Council, not only was not at the request of a Fairfax resident, but put the blame on banks, insurance companies and hedge funds. Come on folks! PS I have seen some pretty bizarre photos myself (e.g. some taken by my friend in NJ who is very frustrated by what she describes as endless days and nights of criss-crossing grids that make everything look black and smoky. But promoting hoaxes, conspiracy theories, and getting the town council involved in this manner with all the "hoopla", nonsense and misinformation, is not only a waste or time, but an outright embarrassment and insult. (PS to well, you know who y'all are: It is I who will no longer put up with this abuse of power, condescension, or outright nastiness from you. Debate me online, or meet with me to discuss (yes even argue) over a cup of tea. But please don't send me offensive personal messages, or yell at me at 711. You may not agree with me, you may not like me, but *I* am a MEMBER of this community and you may NOT treat me like that.)

you are welcome Rich the disinfo floks are very busy on this site- to be expected the first is a video which documents the govt HAARP site - states that they are doing these experiments- good luck to these guys who believe they can use vinegar to help- wonder if any of these doubters will look at any of the documentation- it is so easy to continually call peoples sanity into question- hoping that people will fall into line instead of looking at the evidence themselves- we've forgotten about fukushima- the media and disinfo people are so busy with the constant distractions!

Cindy, It's really hard to carry your burden thrust on you by us. It is absolutely reasonable you demand our understanding too. In 1965 while a USMC fighter pilot my colleague (an RIO) and I encountered a 3000+- foot diameter UFO; we were at 55,000 feet, it was at 125,000 feet over the Kagoshima Volcano on the Southern Island of Japan. This event (and others) open my eyes to a bifurcated reality our society has created and it is unreasonable for those of us who have these encounters to expect others, relying on the sciences taught in school, to except such a huge displacement in your comfort zone from all you cherish and hold dear to buy into our views without proof. I am ever mindful of your heavy burden and humbly respect your diligence to be fair. You will only always have my love for your willingness to listen. We are each brought to these positions on opposite sides of viewing reality through many different paths. My path was a Doubting Thomas path to a spiritual awakening over a lifetime of events. Our burden is our loneliness in seldom finding acceptance. Our task is to try and bring scientific proof as best as we are able taking whatever length of time it may require to ply you with whatever evidence we can assemble. Our failing is sometimes due to our own impatience and inability to figure out how to construct a proof for you that becomes real in your reality. Rich Buckley, Pres.
