HIV does not cause AIDS. Smoking does not cause lung cancer. And burning fossil fuels does not contribute to global warming.

What do these three statements have in common? They're all rejections of well-established scientific consensus, and recent findings in psychology suggest that people who believe one or more of them are also more likely to believe a number of conspiracy theories: that the New World Order is planning to take over the planet, that the Apollo moon landing was faked in a Hollywood film studio, that the death of Princess Diana was an organized assassination, that an alien spaceship in New Mexico was covered up by the United States' military, and even more.

A real prize wrote the CoSpgs Gazette saying the gov't is spraying chemicals to cause global warming. An ignorant reversal of the idea of chemically enhanced contrails to help reflect solar input and cool the areas involved with Geo-engineering.
The ignorant, stupid, and nutcases are the vast majority, it seems.

It's not hard, really. Unexplained multiple-mile long "contrails" that fan out into clouds? Aluminum poisoning, soil degradation, this stuff is being collected on top of water as it collects a thin sheet over the top. It's killing people and ecosystems.

There's documents and videos of conferences discussing the "idea" of Geo-engineering. Truth is.. There's been spraying metal particulates in our air for tens of years. It's a serious issue that needs a lot more attention. If you have any doubt watch the following documentary, "What in the world are they spraying."

Millions of views and counting.

Sorry, but the contrails have been around a lot longer and act just the same as the purported "chemtrails". Basic physics will show how the trails are formed and like clouds may not dissipate quickly depending on the conditions in the atmosphere.

I think the Kennedy assassination spawned the biggest conspiracy industry of all although perhaps the most lethal was the supposed Jewish banking conspiracy with its added bogus Protocols, all available to explain the depression of the 1930s. 9/11 inside job conspiracies have certainly been in play for a host of believers.

All of this suggests something in our dna that attracts us to this kind of thinking. Even I bought the Kennedy conspiracy coverup thesis for a while until I took the time to go over the actual evidence. I suspect paranoid tribal thinking, which probably was useful in many instances, translated badly into modern society.
