Ice clouds apparently block sunlight and heat resulting in increase global warming. I am pretty confused actually about this

Could you elaborate a bit more? Just posting a link isn’t enough.


First of all, this belongs in #real-world-aviation, which you have to be Member (TL2) to post in.

Second, please add a bit of your own insight to the article rather than just linking an article.

Third, if this is a “chemtrail” article, I’m going to lose my mind.


No it’s a contrail, it’s about ice clouds that stop sunlight and increase the global warming and the fuel stays in the air

Good. Chemtrails are a erroneous lie fabricated by paranoid people.

As we all know, CNN spins the news in their laundry room

In my opinion, planes themselves cannot hurt the environment too badly.

Very interesting but as they say, METARs would need some sort of cointail detection.

But for the fuel consumption thing I’m really not sure. 0.1% between what and what?
