NOAA Labs Confirm Contrails Warming the Climate 5

Airplane Contrails May Be Creating Accidental Geoengineering

Dissipating haze from plane exhaust alters how sunlight reaches the Earth and may be unintentionally affecting our climate

Airplane Contrails Unintentional Geoengneering

High in the sky, aerosols from airplane exhaust become encased in ice and form the bright contrails seen in a plane’s wake. (limpido/iStock)

Note: The ludicrous photo featured in the Smithsonian reveals a pattern of bizarre air traffic that cannot possibly be permitted under FAA rules of clearance for civilian aviation. Wild endangerment of air safety is obvious to the most naïve observer. Also, every jet trail in this scene is not a mere contrail but a persistent contrail requiring near saturated conditions of relative humidity at flight level – a condition that rarely exists above 30,000 feet.

As prelude to this article we must first look at observations from climate scientist Jasper Kirkby. PhD,  who characterizes these “contrails” as deliberate aerosol dumps by jet aircraft.

Contrails and high, artificial clouds (persistent,  spreading  contrails) are are known to warm the climate. NOAA labs are quietly confirming contrails are warming the Earth’s surface  when they acknowledge contrails are a form of geoengineering.

“Contrails tend to warm the Earth’s surface, similar to thin high clouds.”

If you go outside on a clear day and look up toward the sun—being careful to block out the bright disk with your thumb—you might see a hazy white region surrounding our star.

This haze is caused by airplanes, and it is gradually whitening blue skies, says Charles Long of NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado. “We might be actually conducting some unintentional geoengineering here,” Long said at a press conference this week at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco.

Geoengineering involves the manipulation of an environmental process in such a way, usually deliberate, that it affects the Earth’s climate. For instance, previous researchers have proposed combating global warming by intentionally seeding the atmosphere with small particles, or aerosols, to scatter some sunlight and reduce the amount of heat trapped by greenhouse gases.

Long and his colleagues don’t yet have enough data to know how much of an effect the icy haze left by airplanes may be having on the climate or whether it is contributing to warming or cooling. But its existence demonstrates yet another way that humans might be altering the climate system, Long says, and “you can see this with your own eyes.”

The discovery comes out of studies of how much sunlight reaches the Earth’s surface. This energy is not constant. From the 1950s to the 1980s, for instance, the sun seemed to slightly dim, then it started to brighten.

When scientists looked for a cause, they tried linking these changes to the sun’s variable output, said Martin Wild of the Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science at ETH Zurich during the press conference. But they couldn’t find any correlations.

“If it’s not the sun, it must be the atmosphere” responsible for the change, he said. High levels of pollution in the mid-20th century sent massive amounts of aerosols into the atmosphere, where they blocked some of the sun’s energy. But when places like the United States and Europe began polluting less, the amount of aerosols decreased, and the sun appeared to slightly brighten.

Long and his colleagues found intriguing data that something else is also going on. Some of the sun’s light travels directly to the Earth’s surface, but some of it gets scattered during the trip through the atmosphere. With less pollution, this diffuse light should have decreased, but instead it appeared to be increasing.

“We’ve got a mystery here,” Long said. There must be something in the atmosphere scattering the sun’s light. “Small ice particles fit the bill,” he said.

Long thinks air traffic is the most likely source of those particles. Exhaust from an airplane engine contains aerosols and water vapor. High in the atmosphere, where it is extremely cold, the particles serve as nuclei for ice crystals, which form the bright contrails seen in a plane’s wake. Some of these contrails, scientists have found, can contribute to climate change.

As a contrail dissipates, it leaves behind a thin, icy haze. The sky may appear cloud free, but the particles are there until they fall out of the atmosphere. And while in the sky, they scatter the sun’s light in a similar way as in the proposed geoengineering projects.

“It seems quite possible that [Long is] seeing something that’s real,” says Kevin Trenberth of the National Center for Atmospheric Research. But there’s a lot more work that needs to be done to verify the find and make a connection to the climate.

Skies aren’t clear all the time, and why they are clear one day and not the next could matter. “The reason for the clear sky is a factor [Long] needs to explore more,” Trenbeth says.

Long admits that his study creates far more questions than it answers. So far he has good data for only one spot in Oklahoma, and there could be less sky whitening in places that don’t get as much air traffic. The answers to these questions could help scientists better determine what effect airplane travel is having on the global atmosphere and improve climate models, so we can better understand what will happen on our planet in the future.

  1. We are dealing with Star Wars. It involves the combination of chemtrails for creating an atmosphere that will support electromagnetic waves, ground-based, electromagnetic field oscillators called gyrotrons, and ionospheric heaters. Particulates make directed energy weapons work better. It has to do with “steady state” and particle density for plasma beam propagation.
    Chemtrails are the medium – GWEN pulse radars, the various HAARPs, and space-based lasers are the method, or more simply:

    Chemtrails are the medium — directed energy is the method.

  2. yep yep yep…… correct a mundo…. It’s all about total control of humanity… and I know that sounds nuttier than aunt Edna’s fruit cake (a most appropriate description considering the season) but if you do the research, you will find that it IS true. A NASA employee patents the method for using electromagnetic energy to super heat clouds and move weather fronts – technology that could END hurricanes, tornadoes, killer storms, etc… yet these deadly weather phenomena are INCREASING? How is it possible that what we now are able to destroy are growing more in number? Could it be that this same technology has been weaponized and being used AGAINST humanity? I think so…

  3. “So far he has good data for only one spot in Oklahoma, and there could be less sky whitening in places that don’t get as much air traffic”. Is he kidding?? – another example of education which denies common sense and data. Oklahoma is in the middle of the country, https://planefinder.net, confirms heavy traffic. Wisconsin has less traffic than Oklahoma and the dimming is more than 35%. Corn fields were turning yellow due to lack of sun last summer. Wisconsin is under a constant dome of darkness. In the summer, no full sun until 2PM, then jets block the sun at 4PM. Farmers can’t bale hay because it won’t dry (due to lack of sun), so they are green chopping it and fungus is a HUGE problem.

  4. I’m convinced “Operation Evergreen” (massive dumps replacingor in addition to chemtrails) has been put into place within the past 60 days. These dumps are likely to be more observable by satellite than by ground observations in many cases since the trails hide the dumps.
