The “chemtrails” conspiracy theory is one of the most talked about conspiracies on Earth, and the late pop legend Prince was among its high-profile advocates.
Conspiracy theorists believe that the contrails excreted by jet airplanes are nothing but streams of toxic “mind-control” chemicals. According to them, these chemicals get diluted before they reach the ground, creating an inhalable gas that keeps mass population in check.
While it has been alleged that the secret, large-scale atmospheric spraying program, commonly referred to as chemtrails or covert geoengineering, was actually taking place, a study was conducted to look for evidence.
However, there are individuals who tend to consider that the sustainable condensation trails, or contrails, excreted by aircraft act as the major proof of a secret large-scale spraying program. The individuals who believe in this conspiracy theoryclaim that the government or some industry is behind this alleged spraying.
According to Science Daily, a study was conducted by Carnegie Science, University of California Irvine, and the nonprofit organization Near Zero. Ken Caldeira of Carnegie Science, facilitated a survey of the world’s finest atmospheric scientists.
The experts firmly refuted the existence of a secret spraying program.
The team’s findings were published by Environmental Research Letters. They were based on a survey of two groups of experts: atmospheric chemists who are experts in condensation trails and geochemists who specialize on atmospheric deposition of dust and pollution.
The study showed that 76 out of 77 of the world’s leading atmospheric scientists said they had not come across a single evidence of any secret spraying program. As one may consider that the CIA could manipulate conspiracy theorists in believing so, the absence of such proof was strictly confirmed by scientific methods.
According to Gizmodo, the chemtrails could be attributed to other factors. Scientists said that these factors might include airplane contrail formation and poor data sampling, along with well-defined physics and chemistry associated with the subject.
“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, an author on the study.
“The experts we surveyed resoundingly rejected contrail photographs and test results as evidence of a large-scale atmospheric conspiracy.”
