The leader of the Environmental Party (Miljöpartie) in the town of Vingåker, Pernilla Hagberg, ignited a discussion in the Swedish mainstream media about chemtrails. A broad public discussion about the mysterious trails forming artificial clouds over our heads is long overdue. In Sweden as well as here.The discussion started when this courageous politician commented on a photo depicting a chemtrail but titled condensation trail.Here is the translation of the newspaper article that started the discussion :
Parlamentarian convinced of strange phenomenon
The leader of the environmental party in Katrineholm, Pernilla Hagberg, reacted to a photo published in the newspaper Katrineholm Kuriren, picturing exhaust fumes or condense – according to the picture’s title. In her opinion viruses and heavy metals are being sprayed to control the weather.
“Chemtrails contain various mixtures of chemicals and sometimes even viruses. It is disturbing to see them on a clear blue sky and they persist for the entire day. Then there is no more sun during that day.” According to Pernilla Hagberg, chemtrails are intended to control the weather and to influence sun rays and nature. She does not exactly know who is responsible for these chemtrails but suggests that the intention might be to gain more control over the global markets, the prices of commodities and food. “It is something steered by the USA and Russia. It is connected to the military”, says Pernilla Hagberg.

This led to another newspaper picking up the story , but one can already notice the spin which is used to discredit Mrs. Hagberg:
Politician: CIA spraying poison over Sweden
Chemicals, viruses and heavy metals are being sprayed over Sweden – by the CIA and the government.
That is whats the leader of the Environmental Party faction in the parliament believes.
“We have to convince the technicians of the airplanes to stop loading these containers” says Pernilla Hagberg. (Aftonbladet 20 Sep 2012
The newspaper Katrineholms Kuriren published her theses in its Thursday issue, denounced by all relevant scientists as pure conspiracy theories:
Release of poison
Pernilla Hagberg saw a picture in the newspaper that was titled airplane exhaust fumes or condensation trails. But in her opinion these trails are so-called chemtrails, poisons that are emitted from airplanes to control the weather. “It is one of the most serious phenomena in Sweden today. These trails contain a multitude of chemicals, viruses and heavy metals, such as Aluminium that influence the weather”
It is about power
Pernilla Hagberg says she believes that the CIA and the American NSA (National Security Agency) are behind the release. “To be able to control the weather and use it for their own purposes is very advantageous for power structures. The Swedish government could also be involved” she says.
“I heard that there are government decisions welcoming chemtrails over Sweden”
Pledge to investigate the issue
She stresses that she is speaking as a private individual and not as a representative of the environmental party. But she pledges to try to stop chemtrails if she is re-elected. “It is a very controversial and sensitive issue. To shed light on it is very interesting. I know of several politicians who would like to do it but do not dare to.”
What do you actually want to do to stop chemtrails?
“Firstly we have to convince the airplane technicians to stop installing the tank containers in the airplanes. It is all about overcoming one’s fear.” But Pernilla Hagberg does not get much support from meteorologists. Anette Levin of the SMHI (Sweden’s meteorological- /hydrological institute) says: “I definitely do not believe this. I cannot believe that someone would manipulate the weather in this way.”
“The trails you can see in the sky behind a jetplane can be explained simply”, she says. “When jet fuel is burned small particles are created. If the air is moist enough water droplets form on these particles, creating condensation trails. Sometimes they stay for long sometimes they disappear quickly. It all depends on the humidity of the air in which you are flying” says Anette Levin.
Some members of the environmental party have distanced themselves from Pernilla Hagberg’s theories.
“There is a lot else that has to be dealt with in the environment. It is not necessary to invent foolish things”, comments Gudrun Lindvall, local leader of the environmental party in Katrineholm to the Katrineholms Kuriren.
