Chemtrail Juice is Making Me Write This

Posted By on Tue, Jun 24, 2014 at 9:00 AM

The Havasu News started to crawl around the internets this morning, and some folks had a laugh or two. It seemed like maybe we could laugh together and then escape the usual national ridicule ... until today when Wonkette picked up the story that published on Friday, and gave it the usual beautiful crazyland treatment.

Maybe it's unfair to describe this state lawmaker, who called for a special meeting with her constituents to talk about chemtrails, as crazyland.

Per usual, folks running the state and working to avoid spending time on economic development, energy or water issues—however, since she's bringing a science person to reassure her people they aren't being mind controlled, maybe that's a good thing.

And maybe they could bring this show to Tucson next. From the Wonkette:

Ward said she has received a lot of communication from constituents who feel they are not being listened to and aren’t confident in the air and water testing being conducted in the area. She said some of her constituents have questioned a connection between the chemtrails and a heightened level of certain minerals in their blood.

“They are concerned because many of them have had blood work, and they are concerned about our air and water, so I want ADEQ (the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality) to come out and reassure them,” Ward said.

Ward said she is confident that the air and water in Mohave County are safe and pointed to naturally occurring minerals that could account for heightened levels of mercury and other minerals in blood tests.

“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,” she said. “I can’t do field tests on the water, but I can connect them to the people who do.”

We suppose that wanting to reassure people that they’re not being bombarded by super secret weather control (or mind-control) chemicals from 35,000 feet may be an admirable impulse, but it also strikes us that Ward is missing out on an important part of the problem: She’s going to have a government sciencey person talking to people who believe that they are in fact being bombarded by super secret weather-control (or mind-control) chemicals from 35,000 feet. It’s a given that anyone from state government is in on the cover-up. We feel sorry for the poor folks from the ADEQ who have to give that presentation — but we sure wish we could be there, too.

Mark Schaffer, a spokesperson for ADEQ, said that the department regularly fields calls and emails from people convinced that condensation of water from jet exhaust is actually a nefarious plot, and that “Our standard response has been that there is no credible scientific evidence about chemical spraying or geoengineering.” So that ought to satisfy the conspiracy folks real good.
