We are saved, perhaps, from worrying about pollution clouds like these over Soddy-Daisy by their being known now with Latin names. (Photo David Tulis)

"Aircraft condensation trails (contrails) that have persisted for at least 10 minutes will be given the name of the genus, Cirrus, followed only by the special cloud name “homogenitus”, so a contrail will be known only as Cirrus homogenitus.” (Photo World Meteorological Association)

This sort of cover occurs after sky striping has thoroughly plastered an area and the trails have dispersed, making sky rings and multiple suns. A type of cirrostratus cloud. (Photo cloudatlas.wmo.int)

This photo from a cloud atlas now online from the World Meteorological Organization views the aerial activity in a neutral fashion, as mere phenomenon, not as a breach by companies and governments against human populations on the ground. (Photo cloudatlas.wmo.int)

The World Meteorological Association has created entries for sky stripes and the clouds that come from the emission of aerosols in the skies over Chattanooga and other parts of the world.

The reporting on cloud types that originate with jet aircraft is made without any reference to the process that creates the clouds or the material used to extend white powder stripes across the skies, sometimes in remarkable patterns of what fairly could be called official pollution.Nooga Radio Logo (1)

Hamilton County was treated on average 8.8 days a month in the time between February and November. Starting in February, the number of sky stripe days are as follows: 11, 11, 9, 6, 13 (June), 11, 6, 6 (September), 6 and 9 thus far this month.

The descriptions, in other words, are nonjudgmental and accepting of the fact of aerial intervention as the weather as normative.

The formerly printed only volumes studying cloud cover offer  high quality photos of many kinds of familiar and innocuous clouds clouds.

The atlas was founded in 1939 and officials began work in 2011 to update its materials and make it the “undisputed web-based global reference standard for the classification and reporting of clouds and meteors.” Clouds exist up to 13 kilometers above the sea.

New name for cloud type

From the World Meteorological Association in November 2017: “Aircraft condensation trails (contrails) that have persisted for at least 10 minutes will be given the name of the genus, Cirrus, followed only by the special cloud name “homogenitus”, so a contrail will be known only as Cirrus homogenitus. As new, or recently formed aircraft condensation trails may undergo a fairly rapid state of change and may display a variety of transient shapes, no species, varieties or supplementary features will be applied to the name.”

Another type of cloud from jet emissions is called cirrus uncinus homomutatus,

Next to a photo of chemtrailing is this helpful description of cirrus homomutatus there’sthis lyrical passage: “Apart from a few patches of Cumulus fractus(1)(2), virtually all of the cloud in this photograph is of anthropogenic origin (man-made). The clouds have formed through the spreading out, over time, of persistent aircraft condensation trails (contrails). Contrails (Cirrus homogenitus) are visible near the top right, top left and centre of the image. The contrail in the centre is in the process of transitioning to homomutatus. Elsewhere the original contrails have mutated into extensive areas of Cirrus, (Cirrus homomutatus).
