Some of you will have noticed that I have been very quiet about so called chemtrails. I’ve been observing this so called physical phenomenon and the human phenomenon around it, since it first became a popular idea more than a decade ago.
My interest in the weird atmospheric affects created by aircraft, began in 1982 when my dad was in his third year flying for Cathay Pacific around Asia, Europe and N America. I would watch these strange effects and the clouds that they would sometimes create and wonder what they were. When I asked my dad what they were, he explained that AvGas exhaust was hot and when it met cold air, the water vapour crystallised. It wasn’t until about 1986 that dad’s explanation made any sense to me, while I was studying chemistry and aviation (as preparation for attempting to get into the RAAF a few years later).
I remember one day in 1987 standing with my uncle, watching and photographing a huge cloud that formed behind a 747. I was dumb struck as it widened, then spanned the entire sky and moved ever so slowly from south to north ! That was the first time I’d ever heard someone suggest that they might be something weird. My uncle’s friend Wheels made a joke that, “Maybe it’s spraying something !”. We all laughed and I promptly forgot about Wheels’s ridiculous comment ! Little did I know what was coming !
So let me get to the point. I don’t believe in the chemtrail phenomenon ! I will acknowledge that there are some chemtrails that reflect covert and public atmospheric engineering projects. Some of these have been documented and various whistle blowers have talked about these projects. However it is clear in my mind (after watching thousands of planes over the last 25 years, watching a number of videos on the subject and reading the opinions of meteorologists, aeronautical engineers, flight crew, chemical engineers etc.) that most of what passes as chemtrails, is in fact, contrails. The phenomenon is in my mind and example of social hysteria, based on very few facts. A meme that has way too much attention. And think about this for a minute. If you add up all the power used by all the people who have watched and researched chemtrails, humans have done more damage to the environment by believing in stupidity, than any deliberate spraying. Youtube has done infinitely more damage to the environment than any covert project !
But here’s the elephant in the room that reflects the absolute stupidity of the human race ! The same elephant in the room that is related to so called CO2 induced climate change. POPULATION ! 2.5 billion people have been added to the planet, since I saw that surreal contrail in 1987. Back then it was a rare event to see something like that. And now as you know, it’s very common.
I first moved out here onto the plains in 1994 and I have been watching aircraft fly over head and either side of us night and day. Back then the air traffic was reasonably light and we hardly ever saw contrails or lingering contrails. Now we have days when there are dozens of lingering contrails. And it isn’t because we’re being sprayed, it’s because the air traffic has multiplied. I have no idea how many aircraft fly over here on a daily basis but it might be as many as 100 aircraft some days. So why has the air traffic multiplied ? Because there are more people living in Australia and more peoople travelling to and from Australia ! Ipso Facto !
Sometimes when I watch the sky, I’ll see a aircraft 2 minutes apart. The first contrail has no time to dissolve before subsequent contrails begin layering on top. Or as typically happens, the first contrail moves away and another one forms roughly where the first one formed and eventually you end up with roughly equidistant contrails, taking up much of the sky.
There are various reasons why contrails form and why they don’t and why they create different effects. I’m not a chemist or an atmospheric meteorologist, so I can’t explain to you what’s happening chemically (you’ll have to research that yourself). But I can tell you that I have noticed very clear and distinctive patterns in contrail formation and non formation, in relation to weather conditions and the volume of air traffic. I’m sure that if there were large scale studies into the contrails and the effects of weather, topology and the volume of air traffic, you would find clear relationships between them. Instead, people are more interested in believing something they have never proved for themselves !
I can’t think of a single reason to disprove the idea that increased population, has increased the volume of air traffic and the number of contrails and changed their behaviour ! And I can’t for the life of me figure out why people aren’t talking about it ! My suspicion is that people are absolutely terrified of talking about population issues because it always results in someone thinking about population control and ideas of genocide. Which as I’ve suggested before, is absurd and myopic ! Genocide is at the extreme end of potential solutions. There are a whole spectrum of possibilities for controlling the human population, that have nothing to do with hurting people ! Perhaps this fear and hysteria is why those who believe in CO2 induced climate change, avoid mentioning the rising population.
I remember visiting China in 1981 and seeing almost everyone riding bicycles and very few cars. The skies in many places were reasonably free of pollution ! Where as in Hong Kong (where I lived with my family in the holidays) there were very few bicycles relative to cars, wide ranging industry and 7 million people crammed into a tiny space. Much of Hong Kong was covered in smog ! Hong Kong was what China is today. And the only reason that things have changed in China is because there are more people, there is more industry and there are more cars. If we can see and accept that more people driving cars causes pollution and smog in much of Asia, India and N America, how can we remain so ignorant of the link between population, air traffic and contrails ?
The real concern for me isn’t that we the people are being sprayed (along with those responsible for the spraying ;-)) but that the increased human population and subsequent increased air traffic is having significant unforeseen effects on the natural world. This includes but is not limited to :
- The formation of large volumes of contrails, which potentially :
- Interrupt normal atmospheric patterns (winds, cloud formation and rainfall).
- Interrupt normal radiance of the planet’s surface, which effects photosynthesis in plants and natural rays which are beneficial to plants, animals and humans.
- Create short, medium and long term turbulence (more extreme weather events e.g. Hurricanes, droughts etc.).
- An increase in sound pollution (imagine every aircraft creates a moving cone of sound) that has the potential to :
- Decrease biodiversity.
- Interrupt bird migrations.
- Increase predator advantage.
- Interrupt the activities of nocturnal animals.
- Effect the mental, emotional and physical health of animals.
- Reduce available habitat for animals.
- Interrupt the trophic pyramids associated with specific habitats.
To say nothing of what increased air traffic has done and is doing to human beings.
You can begin your journey of discovery about contrails vs chemtrails here :
But I suggest you use this as a stepping stone and really dig in and look as deeply as possible at both sides !
Take a good look at these air traffic videos below and tell me that the human population has nothing to do with what’s filling our skies !
What will really change people’s attitudes to the human population crisis, is not what it’s doing to the natural world (including the Sixth Mass Extinction) but what it will do to our quality of life. People will come to despise things like congestion, air traffic, continuous noise, pollution, problems with access to medical staff and hospitals, the cost of health care and the loss of the way of life that they once enjoyed. My prediction is that the first people to make this change, will be the baby boomers. People who remember what the world was like with fewer people. And as time goes by, all the generations that have followed, will begin to experience the same kind of loss of the way of life they once enjoyed and sense that their quality of life has deteriorated. I guarantee it ! Come back and tell me I’m wrong in 30 years time !
PS. Not one ET has ever suggested that I/we should be concerned about chemtrails ! And yet every one of them I raised the issue of population with, confirmed that it was a critical issue facing our species !
And just in case you were wondering about other modes of transport.
From the Sustainable Australia FB group (https://www.facebook.com/VoteSustainable/) :
“DICK POLLS THE PUBLIC | Parties need a population plan
An overwhelming majority of Australian adults believe major political parties should have a population plan, according to a Galaxy poll commissioned by entrepreneur Dick Smith.
The survey of 1005 adults was carried out this month and reported 83 per cent of respondents believed major parties should have a population policy and 82 per cent agreed population growth was an issue on which politicians needed to act.
Most respondents believed insufficient infrastructure, crowded cities, housing affordability and rising unemployment were the main consequences of Australia’s growing population.
He said a cap of 70,000 migrants a year would allow for family reunions and skilled workers as well as jobs for the current population’s children and grandchildren who face reducing work opportunities due to automation and robotics.
“There’s absolutely no discussion with Labor, Liberal or Greens, it’s verboten,” he said. “It’s most important … it’s more important than gay marriage.”
“The last thing in the world we need is more people,” he said.
SA: Only #Sustainable has a population plan – lower immigration from a record 200,0000pa back to a cap of 70,000pa – to level off our population well under 30 million.
Sick of politicians?
Why are our politicians too afraid to discuss the issue of having a population plan and yet they openly flaunt plans to develop northern Australia and increase Australia’s population without any real consultation with the voters (http://northernaustralia.gov.au/files/files/NAWP-FullReport.pdf) ?
I’ve talked several times about the Australian Dick Smith becoming a significant player in the population reduction movement nationally and globally. Since the airing of his Fair Go TV add, Dick has come under attack by legions of people who do not understand his message. Poor Dick has chosen one of the hardest things a human being can do, in this day and age. But he is in my view a hero ! One of those rare human beings who cares immensely for people and the planet, who is willing to put his neck on the line and his money where his mouth is, to try to make things better for future generations. The mainstream media remains ignorant and uncaring and unwilling to go against their multinational bosses (e.g. Fairfax media in Australia is now owned by Americans) and the vox populi ! In order for the human population and the Australian population to reach reasonable levels post 2070, Dick will need to buckle in for the long haul because he is soon to become the most hated man in Australia !
I can only imagine how Australians will become divided when the WA/NT state governments and our federal government announces that it will develop Northern Australia and Australia starts to fill up like America !
The doors are open, Australia is empty, plenty of room for another 50 million people ! Nothing else matters but human beings ! 😉
I’ve said before that Dick Smith is going to change the future of Australia’s population and have a significant effect on the human population globally. I was shown and told that he would be Australia’s key player. And here he goes now with a new add he personally funded, targeting Australia’s uncontrolled immigration rates – which are completely changing the face of Australia – both it’s urban face and it’s natural face. The people that seem to hate Dick are migrants who benefited from coming here in recent decades and refugee advocates but those who get his message are the one’s who sense that not all change has been healthy for the country.
I take my hat off to Dick for having the balls to confront the issue head on, despite being accused of as being a racist – which he isn’t. He just cares about the impact that uncontrolled population growth is having on the people and the environment of this once beautiful country.
I don’t understand how people can be so ignorant of the problems that arise from uncontrolled human population growth ? Just because a person says no to unlimited immigration, doesn’t make them a racist ! Every country must deal with it’s own problems. And collectively we must address the same basic human rights and learn to control our populations. Otherwise we’re fucked !

I’ve been talking to my friends about he human population crisis since I was in high school in about 1986. And these days whenever I mention in, people think I’m advocating culling humans. I still think a solar catastrophe is the only way that will happen ! Let nature take care of us ! But until then, I believe that this is the most significant issue facing our planet, equal to the loss of biodiversity – which of course is linked to us. I know this issue is unpopular with some of my readers but it’s an issue I will always care immensely about. There are too many of us and we are destroying this biosphere. Period. All attempts to dismiss the population crisis as a myth are simply naive and myopic !
For those people who are silly enough to believe in the idea of green house gas climate change – what happens to emissions when population goes up ? Der !
Here’s a Playlist of population related videos that I will continue to update : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7ejier1m7eWWv4n3kFTF9jIsP4lsWEQD.
It isn’t pretty material but it ain’t nothing, compared to what we will have to live with in the not too distant future. There’s plenty we can do about the situation before it’s too late for all of us. A few quick suggestions include :
- Use logic and think about it. Then get educated.
- Travel around the world and see the impact for yourself, as I have done.
- Start a global or national petition, asking your government to investigate the situation and long term impacts.
- Start a movement.
- Start a FB group, website or podcast dedicated to the issue..
- Write to national and state newspapers about the issue.
- Talk to people you know about the issue.
- Make a documentary on the issue.
- Educate a significant public personality on the issue.
- Make suggestions to your government to investigate policy options regarding population.
- Talk to young people about the issue and educate them where you can (or get educated by them !).
- Study what happens when populations rise in the natural world.
