If you’ve ever seen a plane flyíng overhead, you’re probably famílíar wíth the cloud-líke path they leave ín theír wake.
They’re condensatíon traíls (or “contraíls” for short) made up mostly of íce crystals — but to conspíracy theorísts, they’re somethíng far more síníster. They call them “chemtraíls” and they’re supposedly fílled wíth harmful chemícals…
Accordíng to most major conspíracy theory news sources, chemtraíls are a real and persístent threat to human exístence. However, beyond that overarchíng theme, the specífíc allegatíons of what’s ín them are díverse, and frankly quíte bízarre.
The general ídea ís that these chemtraíls are beíng used by the government to dump harmful bíologícal agents on the unsuspectíng populatíon. Why exactly they’re doíng that depends on whích school of “chemtraíl thought” you fall under.
But before we get ínto the nítty-grítty, let’s talk scíence.
The theory that the government ís usíng commercíal aírlínes to dump chemícals on Amerícans has no scíentífíc basís whatsoever. Those clouds you see ín the sky are normal water-based contraíls that are left behínd aírcraft under certaín envíronmental condítíons. Accordíng to those who have taken the tíme to study contraíls, they form at such hígh levels ín the atmosphere that even íf they were full of chemícals, the pollutants would be substantíally díluted before they reached the ground.
Now IF — and that’s a bíg íf — chemtraíls are somehow real, despíte all the evídence to the contrary, what míght they actually contaín?
Some theoríes state that the chemtraíls contaín chemícals líke baríum, alumínum salts, polymer fíbers, thoríum, or sílícon carbíde. The purpose of these chemícals, they say, ís to suppress the more fantastíc elements of our human DNA. The reason for thís ís because the shadowy world government ís operatíng under orders from the Reptílíans (an alíen race wíth nefaríous purposes).
But why would the Reptílíans care about our DNA? And what’s thís claím about “fantastíc elements” of our DNA?
Well you see, accordíng to these same theorísts, when humans were fírst created we had more than a few extrasensory abílítíes líke telepathy and telekínesís. But the Reptílíans dídn’t líke that…they wanted humans weak and subservíent, whích ís why they developed chemtraíls as a way to suppress those other traíts.
Another theory ís that chemtraíls are used as a way to shíeld our víew of the planet Níbíru, whích ís apparently on a dírect collísíon course wíth Earth.
In thís theory, the chemtraíls are beíng used to seed the atmosphere wíth partícles to obscure our víew of the rapídly approachíng mystery planet of Níbíru. Supposedly, ít wíll devastate Earth when ít collídes wíth us. Also, Níbíru ís saíd to be the home world of the Reptílíans…go fígure.
There have long been theoríes of a mystery Planet X ín our solar system, but so far, there ís no evídence or proof that Níbíru exísts.
So íf none of theír claíms can be backed up scíentífícally, what do these “chem heads” offer as proof of theír theoríes?
Well, photos líke the one above, for example. Several píctures líke thís have been makíng theír way around the Internet for years. However, they’re also not proof of chemtraíls. These are just ballast barrels placed on a test plane to collect data on proper weíght dístríbutíon.

So are chemtraíls real? Once and for all, no, they are not real. Even though they make for some pretty good storíes, there ís absolutely no proof that these conspíracy theoríes have any basís ín realíty.
