Citing concerns from constituents, an Arizona lawmaker has called for a hearing next week to address chemtrails over her desert community, according to HavasuNews.com.
State Sen. Kelli Ward called the public meeting, to be held at the Board of Supervisors Auditorium in Kingman, Arizona, saying she had heard from “a lot” of constituents who feel that their concerns over the possible effects of chemtrails on the weather and on their blood chemistry are not being taken seriously.
“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,” Ward said. “I can’t do field tests on the water, but I can connect them to the people who do.”
Among the concerns over the chemtrails is a belief that they may be altering mineral levels in the blood.
“They are concerned because many of them have had blood work, and they are concerned about our air and water,” Ward said. “So I want ADEQ (the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality) to come out and reassure them.”
Sherri Zendri, administrative counsel, and Beth Hager, public affairs director, of the ADEQ will attend the meeting and make a short presentation, focusing on the department’s lack of regulatory authority over any type of chemical spraying.
Part of a panoply of government conspiracy theories, water vapor contrails left by high-flying aircraft have been labeled chemtrails and are believed by some to be chemical agents being sprayed into the atmosphere for nefarious purposes. Some proponents of the chemtrail conspiracy theory believe that the government employs them for atmospheric geoengineering in an effort to control weather patterns.
Those concerns were voiced by some Havasu and Mohave County residents.
“There’s a lot of conspiracy theories about chemtrails and they may or may not be true,” Robert Hunter, 31, of Havasu said. “But when it comes down to it, the government isn’t telling us everything. We have a right to know what’s going on, and there’s definitely something going on.”
He added, “I’ve read that chemtrails can change weather patterns. I do believe that there’s global warming because of nuclear testing, space shuttles, etc. So I think there is some kind of combat happening to keep temperatures normal.”
Area resident Jennifer Cramer stated that she has seen the atmospheric discharges over the skies of Havasu for several years.
“Every time they do chemtrailing there is some dramatic change in the weather. I noticed it this weekend and then it got very windy,” Cramer said. “I’m not a scientist and I don’t know what’s in the (chemtrails). I think we have a right to know instead of worry about it every day.”
