Chemtrails: Distrust Drives Speculation
The growth and popularity of online “chemtrails” discussion indicates an existing level of distrust with the powers that be. Many believe that geoengineering is already taking place. An unfortunate side effect of this distrust is that many of the materials available online concerning geoengineering are based on extensive speculation rather than research and facts.
While the chemtrails discourse reflects a legitimate malaise about transparency, the actual effect of it is to promote opposition to geoengineering based on unfounded assertions, discrediting opposition to these practices in the eyes of many.
There is plenty to oppose in the verified facts and research that we know about geoengineering; we should all start there.
