LETTER: Clearing up the air, up there

I respectfully would like to clarify a letter (May 25 issue of the Grand Forks Gazette). I wrote a few weeks ago regarding high levels of air travel and subsequent “trails” in the sky or chemtrails.


Re: Chemtrails no concern (June 8 issue of the Grand Forks Gazette)

I respectfully would like to clarify a letter (May 25 issue of the Grand Forks Gazette). I wrote a few weeks ago regarding high levels of air travel and subsequent “trails” in the sky.

I have not mentioned any “sinister” goings on and it would be beneficial for all concerned to actually read the letter before commenting.

I would also decline Mrs. Gordon’s assumption that I need any sort of information from a layman such as herself.

The reasons Mrs. Gordon gives for these long, lingering, cloud-forming formations are pedestrian at best . . . “ driving on a winter morning,” “same visible contrail?”

These ridiculous comments infer my ignorance and the ignorance of others.

I resent such a blatant disregard about the state of governmental transparency on the issues of weather manipulation and the like.

I would urge, in all honesty that anyone with simple questions about what is happening in our skies pay no heed nor grant any merit to the simplistic and condescending answers that Mrs. Ann M. Gordon gives.

The work these planes do is legally documented and the methods and machines that are used are both trademarked and patented in the U.S.

I for one do not question that the planes are doing something intentionally; it’s what they are doing here that worries me!

The information is easy to find, look for it and make an educated decision for yourself. This is not fear mongering or me starting a conspiracy theory.

This is an honest question regarding the worldwide, documented phenomena of chemtrails and how they are impacting our small valley. Some may stick their heads in the sand.

I will continue to investigate my concerns and lobby my government.  Thank you for your time.
