What is the purpose of chemtrails being sprayed over major cities?

Allegedly, there has been a mass campaign to expel chemtrails (not to be confused with contrails) from jets over many areas of the US and beyond.  When one investigates the criss-cross patterns of these chemical trails in photos littered across the internet by concerned citizens, you can't help but be curious.  I have since witnessed many of these so called chemtrails over my city on an almost daily basis.  Being a child of the 70's and 80's, I know what a contrail is and that it dissipates fairly rapidly. The "chemtrails" do the opposite.  What is going on?  If you don't believe me, take notice of your own skies for a few days.  Many times you can see evidence of these chemtrails starting and stopping abruptly for no apparent reason.

I have seen no evidence, in my own eyes or online or in any reputable journal, that indicates "chemtrails" are anything other than contrails. You may make any claims about their length and duration and spreading, but there is simply no real, substantive evidence.

I direct any interested readers to the following essay:

which, in my mind, thoroughly debunks the issue. If you dismiss this out of hand as inaccurate or deliberate disinformation, then it's really up to the individual reader to decide how important the issue is.

One thing that is seen in some places is military experimentation with cloud-seeding for both creating rain and dispelling rain. This requires the spreading of chemicals through the atmosphere and may occur, but not necessarily, over major cities since that is a common proximity to military bases. Seeding has been going on long time. The original phases focused on seeding existing clouds. Very recent experiments over New Mexico, Arizona, and Southern and Coastal California focus on seeding a cloudless sky. The experiments have had some initial success.

This sounds like an Internet hoax to me. It could be on the level, but I am not sure that means there is some nefarious purpose to it. I always thought that what you are referring to as chemtrails might be just not dissipating as quickly as they normally would have.

Thank you for your reply, kplhardison.  Many, many major cities across the country are reporting similar events, so I am reluctant to believe it is a limited operation.

If these "seeding" experiments are indeed happening all over the country and, from what I have gathered, across the globe then why isn't the public informed about it?  To my knowledge, there is no admission of these widespread experiments.  Why is it so secret?  If its purpose is to promote moisture or weather manipulation of some sort, then why not be forthcoming?  I don't get it.

Sorry, I forgot to reply to you in my previous post.

If I only saw it online, I would tend to agree.  However, it is happening in the skies over my city on a regular basis.  Most times you can see them stopping and starting suddenly as though it is being turned off and on.  I rarely see a chemtrail by itself, either.  There are frequently a series of Also, it's not as if they're dissapating slowly, they grow in size exponentially forming a line of thin cloud.  Often times I will see jets that appear higher in altitude as the jet spewing the chemtrails and there is only a quickly dissapating contrail on the higher jet.
