Elephant in the Sky


I’m writing briefly to ask when we are going to notice the elephant in the room.

This is a very big elephant.  It is called chemtrails.  And there’s a lot of news about chemtrails on Facebook.  However, we only get the news here in Santa Barbara that won’t upset the tourists and locals who really don’t want to acknowledge the fact that Santa Barbara is being sprayed for three or so days every week.  I’ve taken somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 photographs of chemtrails, and commercial jets carrying passengers.  The contrail for the commercial jets disappears within a few minutes.  The chemtrail from a heavy, lower- flying plane increases in size and spreads and eventually blots out the sun.  My dogs and I need clean air as well as vitamin D.

I spoke with someone at the Air Quality Control District office who let me tell him why I was calling and then told me he would see what he could find.  I suggested he first look up into the sky around 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., when the heavy metal planes are flying over along with the passenger planes.

When are we going to acknowledge what is happening in our breathing space and take a look at the elephant?
