Speaker to address `chemtrail’ problem

John Colson

Do you think the U.S. government is spraying chemicals in the skies that are poisoning the general public?

William Thomas believes this could very well be the case, and he wants to warn the public and force the government to give a full explanation for what he has been dubbed the “chemtrail” problem.

Thomas, a 49-year-old journalist from Canada, will be speaking in Aspen Saturday about his eight-month investigation into chemtrails. Thomas has written books on such diverse topics as the Gulf War Syndrome and the Y2K phenomenon.

According to Thomas’ research, high-altitude aircraft have been spotted spraying what he describes as “broad white trails that looked like contrails but don’t act like the contrails most of us are familiar with.”

Thomas’ investigation has led him to believe that the “chemtrails” – a phrase he coined, are experiments of some kind that rain potentially toxic chemicals down on unsuspecting populations in North America and the United Kingdom.

The chemicals, Thomas believes, are somehow connected to rising rates of flu-like illnesses around the country, outside normal flu seasons, as well as other illnesses and physical symptoms.

Thomas claims to have reports on file from 48 states in the United States, including more than 500 interviews with people who claim to have witnessed the phenomenon and to have experienced the symptoms.

Among the pathogens and chemicals he says have been detected in the stuff being sprayed are “pseudomonas fluorescens, pseudomonas aeruginosa, streptomyces fungus and toxic molds, human white blood cells and restriction enzymes,” according to a locally produced press release about the talk.

Thomas will be speaking at 7 p.m. at the Aspen Elementary School District Theater. Admission is $15 per person, and more information can be obtained by calling 920-1622.
