What is happening in our skies may have more to do with global climate change than we know.  From commercial airlines’ contrails to solar radiation management and weather modification, new and challenging perspectives are emerging. Across the board, diverse interest groups have started to investigate these phenomena and their effects on weather patterns, plants and wildlife, and the health of people. What’s going on, how do we understand it, and what can we do about it?
