Chemtrails: a myth or a government conspiracy?

_1011072P by Calderona.Trails.

Is the above a photo of a beautiful cloudy day, or a toxic sky?

A few months ago I met someone who told me that the government was secretly spraying chemicals into the air that were harmful to our health. I was terrified, so I did a little research and most sources said they were a myth. However, today I found the following video which provides some visual evidence that chemtrails may be the real deal. This trailer for the documentary What in the World are They Spraying? is horrifying.

Is it just me, or is this oil spill situation kinda confusing? Maybe I just don't pay enough attention to the media/news, but I barely understand what's going on and how bad it is. Therefore, I figured it would benefit myself and perhaps some readers if I did some research and broke it all down.

Deepwater Horizon - Gulf of Mexico oil spill won't stop Shell's Alaska drilling plan

What Happened?

  • An explosion and and subsequent fire sank the drilling platform Deepwater Horizon (which BP was leasing from its owner, Transocean) and triggered the mile-deep oil gusher that has defied efforts to stem it, taking 11 workers with it. (CNN 1; 2; 3)

The Cove: movie review

I finally rented The Cove and watched it on the plane ride to Massachusetts. And I was blown away. I've seen a lot of documentaries this year, and I'm tempted to say that this was my favorite.

The Cove is so much more than I expected. Although I heard rave reviews across the board, I didn't know much about it. It was full of facts that i wasn't aware of - about dolphins, marine life, the ocean, Japan, and the government. This movie made me feel compelled to do something to make a difference, as soon as possible.
Though the movie was sad throughout, the part that made me cry was about government coverup of mercury levels in fish. I thought about the amount of people I know who eat fish and have no idea. Thus I was glad to show this movie to my pescetarian family, especially since it is easier for most people to swallow than a film like Earthlings.
Aside from being an incredible piece about animal rights, it is simply a great documentary. It was very well edited and directed; the flow kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. At times I felt like I was watching an action movie in the style of Ocean's 11 or Bourne. The "cast" of the movie was so brave and persistent, and I was so proud of them, especially at the end.
I couldn't get enough of The Cove and I didn't want it to end, in fact I watched it with my family a few days after first seeing it. I live by the ocean, and I'll never look at a dolphins the same again. I've always wanted to swim with dolphins, but now I won't unless out in the ocean. This movie gives a fantastic explanation on why we shouldn't eat fish, for both our health and our planet. If more documentaries were as well done and powerful the world would evolve in a much needed direction.
You must see this movie right away - it will change your life.
