I READ the letter “Calling them ‘contrails’ is a con” by CJ Brady (Uxbridge Gazette, July 27) in which he expresses concern about the pollution from vapour trails from planes.
Our family has noticed the white vapour tracks, now known as ‘contrails’ or ‘chemtrails’ on clear days. If you look up you can see them as soon as there’s a blue sky.
They’re not ordinary flights going straight from A to B. These planes make a patchwork of criss-crosses all over the sky which can turn a clear blue sky into hazy clouds.
These screen out much of the sunshine, which is not good in Britain’s grey climate where many suffer a vitamin D shortage from a lack of sun. Vitamin D helps protect the body from serious illnesses. On the internet it is stated that chemtrails spray tons of harmful aluminium oxide, barium, and other chemicals including arsenic, cadmium, and lead into the atmosphere, to cool down the planet. (Just Google chemtrails.) I’m concerned for people’s health if toxic chemicals are being released in the air. I wish the authorities would at least inform us of what is going on.
