Chemtrail Conspiracy? Nope.

T'ain't so...

Contrails from a Boeing 747.

Are contrails from high-flying planes really part of a chemtrail conspiracy?

T'ain't so, Phil Plait reports on slate.com.

They knew they wouldn’t convince the conspiracy theorists, but having a solid source of objective science might help inform the public discourse, he added.
