AZ lawmaker calls hearing re. chemtrails

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
—Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher (1788 – 1860)

'First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win.'
--Mahatma Gandhi

To sin by silence when we should protest makes cowards out of men.
--Elsa Wheeler Wilcox

There is a principle which is proof against all information, which is proof against all arguments,
which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance; that principle is contempt, prior to
--Herbert Spencer

New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because
they are not already common.
--John Locke, 1690, An Essay Concerning Human Understanding

20 plus years after chemtrails were first spotted by us common folk citizens who have been derided and ridiculed as "conspiracy theorists" for pointing them out, finally someone in a state govt. position is mentioning them...  Sigh.   At this rate of movement, in 2 or 3 more generations we might see some federal Congressional interest in these toxic sprays deliberately being laid down in criss-cross patterns in our skies by governments all over the western world, most probably to control the weather.  But don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen (and many of us who first pointed out these chemtrails won't be around by that time, possibly victims of the chemtrail spray content of barium/aluminum/strontium polluting our air, water and land).  Take note in the article, though, that concerned AZ citizens are still being dismissively portrayed as "proponents of the chemtrail conspiracy theory." The manner in which the article is written paves the way for the government's certain denial of chemtrail existence and a quick brush-off of the citizens' concerns. 

AZ lawmaker calls hearing to address concerns over ‘weather changing’ chemtrails

Citing concerns from constituents, an Arizona lawmaker has called for a hearing next week to address chemtrails over her desert community, according to
State Sen. Kelli Ward called the public meeting, to be held at the Board of Supervisors Auditorium in Kingman, Arizona, saying she had heard from “a lot” of constituents who feel that their concerns over the possible effects of chemtrails on the weather and on their blood chemistry are not being taken seriously.
“I have gotten a lot of communications from people who are concerned and there has been a sense that no one has been doing anything for them to address those concerns,” Ward said. “I can’t do field tests on the water, but I can connect them to the people who do.”
Among the concerns over the chemtrails is a belief that they may be altering mineral levels in the blood.
“They are concerned because many of them have had blood work, and they are concerned about our air and water,” Ward said. “So I want ADEQ (the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality) to come out and reassure them.”
Sherri Zendri, administrative counsel, and Beth Hager, public affairs director, of the ADEQ will attend the meeting and make a short presentation, focusing on the department’s lack of regulatory authority over any type of chemical spraying.
Part of a panoply of government conspiracy theories, water vapor contrails left by high-flying aircraft have been labeled chemtrails and are believed by some to be chemical agents being sprayed into the atmosphere for nefarious purposes. Some proponents of the chemtrail conspiracy theory believe that the government employs them for atmospheric geoengineering in an effort to control weather patterns.
Those concerns were voiced by some Havasu and Mohave County residents.
“There’s a lot of conspiracy theories about chemtrails and they may or may not be true,” Robert Hunter, 31, of Havasu said. “But when it comes down to it, the government isn’t telling us everything. We have a right to know what’s going on, and there’s definitely something going on.”
He added, “I’ve read that chemtrails can change weather patterns. I do believe that there’s global warming because of nuclear testing, space shuttles, etc. So I think there is some kind of combat happening to keep temperatures normal.”
Area resident Jennifer Cramer stated that she has seen the atmospheric discharges over the skies of Havasu for several years.
“Every time they do chemtrailing there is some dramatic change in the weather. I noticed it this weekend and then it got very windy,” Cramer said. “I’m not a scientist and I don’t know what’s in the (chemtrails). I think we have a right to know instead of worry about it every day.”
