Dr. David Dixon has been working on trying to convince Tucson Weekly editor Jimmy Boegle that the chemtrail movement is more than just a kooky conspiracy theory.
It's a topic Boegle is familiar with, and he asked Dixon to give him some new proof that chem trails are an evil plan to ... well, here's part of a definition from Wikipedia:
The chemtrail conspiracy theory holds that some trails left by aircraft are actually chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed at high altitudes for a purpose undisclosed to the general public in clandestine programs directed by government officials. As a result, official agencies have received thousands of complaints from people who have demanded an explanation. The existence of chemtrails has been repeatedly denied by government agencies and scientists around the world, who say the trails are normal contrails.
The latest evidence submitted to El Editor is a constituent reply letter from U.S. Congressman Raul Grijalva's office.
From Dr. Dixon:
Dear Jim Boegle (Editor Tucson Weekly),
When we spoke last regarding Arial Aerosol Spraying (Chem Trails), you said that you had investigated this topic for over 11 years and saw no proof whatsoever. My response was to simply go outside and take a look - it is as obvious as the nose on ones face, once you start looking up, if even just occasionally.
You said once I had proof you would investigate the matter further. Well, here is proof - a letter from our Congressman, Raul Grijalva, stating that he knows about it, is concerned AND feels that it is a public health threat. Repeat - Public Health Threat. Those are not idle words from a Congressman of the United States.
I would implore you as the local editor of a popular news magazine who listed "Chem Trail Conspiracist" as nuts who need to "Get Out of Town" in one of your recently published issues - to retract this comment publically in your magazine, and begin doing whatever you can to protect yourself, your loved ones and the people of this community from Aerosolized Aluminum, Barium and Strontium Nano Particulate spraying of our atmosphere, under the guise of reversing global warming. Right now as we speak, they are "whiting" out the sky in Tucson and there are NO real clouds present.... it is all chem trail cirrus clouds. All of it.
If we are lucky, that is all they are spraying us with... You have an obligation, now more than ever (since you took a firm stand publically in your newspaper), that this is simply "nuttery" and there is NO spraying going on. The sad/funny thing is, you are breathing it too; so the joke is on all of us - including you and your family.
FYI - This email is being Bcc'd to many, many diverse folks and organizations around Tucson and the country.
Well, it's true that Congressman Grijalva's office did e-mail Dr. Dixon on Jan. 21 in response to his concerns with "aerial over spraying."
From Grijalva's office:
Thank you for writing me about aerial aerosol spaying. I am always pleased to hear from constituents, such as you, who take the time to communicate with me. I want to thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. Staying on top of the issues that matter to you, by opening a dialogue with your elected officials, is one of the most important aspects of our democracy.
Like you, I too am concerned about this issue. Aerial over spraying presents a public health threat. As the matter is debated in Congress, my staff and I will be monitoring it closely and taking the appropriate actions to make sure your voice is heard.
Well, unfortunately this actually doesn't prove anything.
We called Grijalva's communications director, Adam Sarvana, who told us the staffer who responded to the letter doesn't know anything about chemtrails. However, part of Grijalva's district includes rural agricultural areas. Pesticide spraying issues, especially as more development occurs near ag areas, does get reported to the congressman's office from time to time.
