    They're condensed water vapor with a dose of crazy.

    They claim that at some point, there were suddenly more of them and that they started to behave differently than a contrail. They are either for mind control, weather control, or a vast right wing plot to heat up the globe.

    I've always thought it would be ironic if they actually do behave differently than they used to because of some random environmentally friendly fuel additive the government mandated be used.
    ... certain forms of ammunition have no legitimate sporting, recreational, or self-defense use and thus should be prohibited. Such action is long overdue.

    So why are people so nutty about them? What the hell could be in condensed water vapor that would affect the weather?

    They don't think they are condensed water vapor.

    They think they are "chemicals" being used by "us" to alter them or their world.

    Kinda like high altitude crop dusting.

    Actually, I wondered how the myth got started and why. I remember in the 90s how the militias were convinced that the black helicopters were coming to attack US citizens and I wondered the same thing: how do these ideas catch on. (Not "why"--there are always paranoid people, but how these people pull others in.)

    Blame it on superior air quality. Chemtrails are one of my very favorite subjects because crackpots all over Colorado call me to share the fear.

    Way back in the day, most major metro areas had such crappy visibility that no one ever even saw contrails (which is what these really are). When they did see them, it was infrequent. Thanks to the Clean Air Act, visibility has improved sight out of mind in a lot of areas and so contrails are seen often.

    The pot-addled Coast-to-Coast crowd immediately started "wondering" about all these new, very frequent contrails. Contrails became "chemtrails" and middle-aged hippies throughout America suddenly had a new fear: government chemical experimentation.

    I don't doubt that the government is illegally experimenting on people in small ways (they always have) but they aren't doing it in conjunction with Southwest airlines. As others have pointed out, contrails are just condensation or very rarely, a fuel dump. Get as excited as you want about planes falling out of the sky but don't give the water vapor a second thought. ;)
