Joe Rogan told his fellow comedian Roseanne Barr on Monday that the agricultural giant Monsanto wasn’t spraying aluminum into the atmosphere to create a giant mirror.
During an episode of his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, a discussion about organic farming unexpectedly turned to the issue of “chemtrails.”
Contrails refer to the man-made clouds that form behind jet aircraft. The chemtrail conspiracy theory alleges that these contrails are actually chemical agents being sprayed in the atmosphere for nefarious purposes.
Barr remarked that more farmers in Hawaii were moving towards producing their crops organically, but that the shift couldn’t continue because “we can’t be spraying aluminum and barium all day.”
Rogan, who investigated conspiracy theories in a television series on SyFy, quickly understood that Barr was referencing chemtrails.
“Here is the problem, there is science behind those trails,” he explained. “You can track when it is going to happen and when it is not going to happen. It is all based on the humidity in the atmosphere. That is what it is all based on. When you have a jet engine and it burns jet fuel and it is going through the atmosphere it is creating moisture and in conditions where it is almost cloudy, like very hazy, when a jet engine passes through, this change of atmosphere and adding moisture creates a cloud.”
Rogan also said spraying aluminum into the atmosphere wouldn’t create clouds.
“They look like clouds because they are clouds,” he said. “I’ve asked scientists. They said if you had aluminum dust and you sprayed it it wouldn’t look anything those clouds.”
But Barr said that Monsanto had admitted they needed a reflection in the sky because of what is in the soil.
“They need like to create a mirror,” she said. “Well that is what it is, it’s a mirror.”
Rogan was not convinced.
“Those people are f*cking crazy. Monsanto has never said that.”

AG Bill Barr will ‘try to interfere’ in the 2020 election to re-elect Trump: MSNBC national affairs analyst
Attorney General William Barr will use the Department of Justice to "try to interfere" in the 2020 presidential election to re-elect Donald Trump, MSNBC's national affairs analyst predicted on Tuesday.
John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."
"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.
"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.
WATCH: Maddow hilariously recaps Trump’s ‘shenanigans in the Oval Office’ with the Russian foreign minister
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Tuesday examined President Donald Trump's meeting with Russian Federation Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov -- on the same day that the House of Representatives unveiled articles of impeachment against the commander-in-chief.
Following the meeting, Lavrov trolled Trump on the issues of foreign election interference and Trump's habit of revealing classified intelligence.
"Given that, given the way the president is being impeached for having done all those things to Ukraine in and way that undermined our alliance with them and specifically their fight against Russian aggression -- which has, you know, led to a five-year-long war in Ukraine -- I mean given the fact he's being impeached for undermining Ukraine in its war against Russia, this is heck of a day to choose to have the Russian foreign minister sitting on your lap in the Oval Office," Maddow said.
CNN’s Cuomo smacks down GOP congressman for claiming Democrats have no impeachable offense on Trump
On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) tried to claim that Democrats had no impeachable offenses against Trump — and anchor Chris Cuomo promptly fact-checked him.
"I still ask that question, what was the impeachable offense?" said Mullin. "They started with quid pro quo, moved to bribery and when the articles of impeachment came out, they say it's high crimes and misdemeanors. From day one they have been in search of a crime. They've been trying to explain to the American people why they're impeaching a duly elected president. Underneath the past impeachments it was very clear. Clinton committed perjury. Andrew Johnson, he removed the Secretary of War illegally and Nixon broke into the DNC. Those are impeachable offenses. I ask the question—"
