If you search for “chemtrails” in Wikipedia, you won’t find an entry on chemtrails. Instead, you are directed to the entry, “Chemtrail conspiracy theory,” which begins:
The chemtrail conspiracy theory is based on the erroneous belief that long-lasting condensation trails are “chemtrails” consisting of chemical or biological agents left in the sky by high-flying aircraft, sprayed for nefarious purposes undisclosed to the general public.
If chemtrails are merely a figment of imagination by loony, tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy theorists, why are chemtrails mentioned in a Congressional bill, HR 2977 – Space Preservation Act of 2001?
According to HR 2977, since Congress, in section 102(a) of the
National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958 (42 U.S.C. 2451(a)), states that it “is the policy of the United States that activities in space should be devoted to peaceful purposes for the benefit of all mankind,” the purpose of HR 2977 is:
To preserve the cooperative, peaceful uses of space for the benefit of all humankind by permanently prohibiting the basing of weapons in space by the United States, and to require the President to take action to adopt and implement a world treaty banning space-based weapons.
To that end, Section 3 of HR 2977 states:
The President shall–
(1) implement a permanent ban on space-based weapons of the United States and remove from space any existing space-based weapons of the United States; and
(2) immediately order the permanent termination of research and development, testing, manufacturing, production, and deployment of all space-based weapons of the United Statesand their components.
Among the space-based weapons that HR 2977 wants the United States to ban and remove are “exotic weapons systems” that include chemtrails:
Section 7 (2) of HR 2977 states:
(B) Such terms include exotic weapons systems such as–
(i) electronic, psychotronic, or information weapons;
(iii) high altitude ultra low frequency weapons systems;
(iv) plasma, electromagnetic, sonic, or ultrasonic weapons;
(v) laser weapons systems;
(vi) strategic, theater, tactical, or extraterrestrial weapons; and
(vii) chemical, biological, environmental, climate, or tectonic weapons.
(C) The term “exotic weapons systems” includes weapons designed to damage space or natural ecosystems (such as the ionosphere and upper atmosphere) or climate, weather, and tectonic systems with the purpose of inducing damage or destruction upon a target population or region on earth or in space.
So-called conspiracy theorists have been conservative in their “paranoia”. As listed above, chemtrails are not the only “exotic weapons systems” that HR 2977 seeks to ban and remove. There are others that are even more lethal, including:
- Psychotronic: Weapons that manipulate human behavior with the use of subliminal, either sound or visual, messages.
- Tectonic: Weapons that induce earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, or other seismic events.
Introduced by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) nearly 18 years ago on October 2, 2001, HR 2977 has no co-sponsors. Not one.
The bill was referred to the House Committee on Science and the Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics. On April 19, 2002, the Department of Defense gave the bill an “unfavorable executive comment,” which effectively killed the bill (see “Actions“).
It is said that in 2002, Rep. Kucinich told Columbus Alive, a free news weekly serving Columbus, Ohio, that they should speak to the Pentagon regarding an “‘ongoing program’ called ‘Vision for 2020’” which was “X-files stuff.” Kucinich claimed that the U.S. Space Command has specific plans for the complete “dominance” and weaponization of space under a program called “Joint Vision for 2020.” A search for “Dennis Kucinich” on Columbus Alive, however, yielded no such article.
But the United States Space Command indeed does have a publication called Vision For 2020. For the full text, click here.
