(Nicole Hensley) Chemtrail believers are winning the ears of Arizona elected officials and get their very own public meeting on the matter.
State Sen. Kelli Ward will entertain conspiracy theories on Wednesday regarding the faint clouds of condensed jet exhaust that have been plaguing the skies over Lake Havasu for years, according to the Havasu News newspaper.
Residents of the remote desert community have inundated Ward with letters, emails and phone calls over the years demanding answers on white streaks in the sky and if they’re connected to the higher than normal levels of mercury in their blood.
“There has been a sense that no one has been doing anything for them to address those concerns,” Ward told the Havasu News.
Neighbors will hopefully learn that contrails are frozen water vapors that follow jets at high altitudes. Conspiracy theorists generally believe the clouds are chemicals sprayed by aircraft. But just in case, representatives with the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality will be on hand with a presentation and will answer questions at the Wednesday meeting at 5 p.m.
“Our standard response has been that there is no credible scientific evidence about chemical spraying or geoengineering,” said Mark Shaffer, spokesman for Environmental Quality, to the paper. The newspaper wrote “you don’t have to look far” to find the believers. They spoke to Robert Hunter, a business owner who believes contrails maybe be related to climate control and global warming is caused by nuclear testing and space shuttles. “But when it comes down to it, the government isn’t telling us everything,” Hunter told the newspaper. “We have a right to know what’s going on.”
