I have three problems with the 'protective shield' intent:<quoted text>
That would be great. Chemtrails have been going on for some time. Particulate matter from these contain aluminum and barium as the main ingredient. For a long time, I thought that this was a "sinister government program." The more that I think about it, the more I am beginning to think that these "clouds" may be protective. The sun is entering solar max and there have been huge flares that potentially could wipe out the grid, if the flares are earth-directed. So far we have been lucky and the flares have not taken an earth-directed path. In the future, we may not be so lucky. The earth's protective magnetic shield is weakening in the wake of polar reversal. This is normal phenomena and takes about 2000 years to complete. It is not the reversal that is dangerous but the weakened magnetic shield, along with decreases in the earth's protective ozone layer. Perhaps the chemtrails in some way are used to deflect these solar flares. I am not certain of this, but it may be worth some consideration.
1. Why don't they just tell us it's for our protection so that perhaps we could start taking our own protective measures?
2. How much protection do we really get from a thin layer of barium and aluminum particulates in the atmosphere when you're dealing with high energy M or X class solar flares? It would be nice if they could show us some scientific calculations on how they have determined how much spraying they need to do to protect us based on the amount of radiation we are receiving. Perhaps I'm a bit paranoid and suspicious by nature, but to me complete silence on the issue from the government is a sign of nefarious intent behind a secret agenda.
3. If they really were shielding us from solar flares, then wouldn't they have to spray the entire country at the same time and not just certain selected areas at what appears to be random intervals?
