The Horrors of Aerial Chemical Spraying

Barbara Tomlinson (she of the cool satellite launch video, and the Spasms of Accommodations blog) forwarded this video to me:

It’s by YouTube user sanluisskywatch, who appears to be on a self-appointed mission to document and spread the word about the fact that the skies over San Luis Obispo are being intentionally sprayed with aluminum and barium:

Airplanes continue to dump toxic fallout over populated areas of the state- pilots are told its to help global warming, but it’s actually to weaken our immune systems, lower farm yields, and help their Ionospheric weapon (HAARP) to heat localized areas that have been sprayed to change the weather. The freakiest part is, the coup running our country into the ground decided to never tell the public, so we are all breathing barium and aluminum almost every day. Aluminum will give you early alzheimers, barium will weaken your immune system and increase likelyhood of usually easily preventable diseases.

Perhaps not surprisingly, he (she?) is also a 9/11 truther:

Stopping the sky from becoming all white, with halos around the sun. Also interested in ending the 9/11 cover-up, which is obvious, and just sad at this point. The media really look like jackasses.

Yup. The media really look like jackasses.

Seriously, though, I had two reactions to this: First, pity at what the world must look like to someone who believes this particular conspiracy theory. I mean, everywhere you look, there they are! Chemtrails! Wake up, people!

Second, my own version of the same fear. Not of chemtrails, but of the world my children will inhabit, in which scientific illiteracy is combined with pervasive networking, such that people like sanluisskywatch can organize with his (her) 137 subscribers (and counting) to spread the word.

    I was going to post “Oh no, chemtrails” after you added the update to the shuttle launch post.

    If someone put an aluminum soda can near this guy/girl would (s)he run away in terror?

    Clay Shirky’s “Here Comes Everybody” is a fascinating book about the impacts of reducing the cost of organizing a group to zero — which is effectively what the web has done, to the point where trivial causes like “I’m with Coco” can effortlessly mobilize a million followers… and causes that appeal to one person in a million are now viable, whether it’s buying and selling Pez dispensers or coordinating an attack on the World Trade Center. Recommended reading.

    Dey can combat the spraying’s effects on farms by giving da plants the electrolytes they crave. Not water. Water is for da toilet. Duh… I never seen no plants grow out of no toilets.

    forbes: Yeah, I read, and liked, Here Comes Everybody, though I think the rabbit hole goes deeper than what Shirky talks about in the book.
