If you suspected that those white streaks lining otherwise pristine blue skies in the wake of unmarked planes are not just your average contrails that are made of pure water vapor, you’d be right.
At least, that’s what the Swedish Green Party leader, Pernilla Hagberg, seems to believe.
According to the Swedish newspaper Katrineholms Kuriren, Hagberg is the first major political leader to speak out on the issue of these mysterious trails banding across the sky.
Unlike normal contrails, these streaks do not fade away into the atmosphere easily. Hagberg has openly stated that these chemtrails — as she herself referred to them — are actually a toxic mix of metals, viruses and chemicals.
According to the United Nations, deliberately employing these aerosol sprays in the atmosphere is one way in which they hope to control climate change and stabilize our weather.
The thought process here is that spraying aerosols into the atmosphere will help block the sun’s rays and help to cool down the earth, and prohibit global warming.
Of course, when it comes to chemtrails, every excuse for their existence has been used. Whether it’s saving the polar ice caps, blocking out harmful rays from the sun or other weather-based manipulation, it’s clear we are actually the ones being manipulated .
There is great concern over what the potential health affects and risks may be associated with the spraying of aerosols into the air. Also known as geo-engineering, it is a practice that has far too many potential risks.
One of the major concerns is when these chemicals do come to ground, they unleash damaging effects to humans and the environment.
For example, abnormally high levels of toxic materials such as barium and aluminum, have been found in the soil and many water supplies.
This can drastically alter the pH balance found in the soil and literally destroy plant life and be very harmful to other inhabitants of the ecosystem.
Geo-engineering has many perceivable downfalls, never mind all the potential catastrophic effects that people haven’t even thought of yet. One thing is for sure though, if the government came up with it, it’s probably not a good idea.
