A conspiracy theorist convinced a Las Vegas TV station to look into chemtrails for an investigative report, which aired during February sweeps month.
Malcolm Harris showed some photographs he took to KLAS-TV that showed what he believes are chemtrails – manmade formations that some suspect are created by the government to control the weather or population.
“You could see the very beginning and the end, and it was very clean and it stood by itself,” Harris said. “There wasn’t anything else around it. I’ve seen clouds being made out here in the desert. All of a sudden you see a cloud being made, and that is not what was going on.”
He said the formation was clearly manmade and unnatural, and aviation writer Bill Sweetman doesn’t disagree.
However, after reviewing the photos, he isn’t convinced they’re chemtrails.
The aviation expert said he spoke to defense industry colleagues and suggested the formations were caused by advanced pyrotechnics – or flares used by fast jets to confuse enemy forces.
George Barnes, producer of the chemtrails film “Look Up,” said various groups are spraying the skies for a variety of reasons.
“The conclusion is, because it is unregulated, anybody could do it,” Barnes said. “So anybody that is interested in experimenting with climate engineering, weather modification, has the right and the authority to test it.”
He claims there is no evidence that grid patterns existed in the sky prior to 2006, but he’s not sure what has changed since then.
However, KLAS reported that the station’s photographers captured checkerboard patterns in the 1990s, and contrails – lingering trails of condensation – are visible in older photos and video footage.
“The reality is . . .
“To think there could be a global conspiracy … is crazy”
