. . . and the clouds will smell of gasoline

. . . and the clouds will smell of gasoline
"Progress has never been a bargain. You have to pay for it. Sometimes I think there's a man who sits behind a counter and says, 'All right, you can have a telephone but you lose privacy and the charm of distance. Madam, you may vote but at a price. You lose the right to retreat behind the powder puff or your petticoat. Mister, you may conquer the air but the birds will lose their wonder and the clouds will smell of gasoline.'" -- Inherit the Wind

When they talk about emissions upsetting the climate, I often wonder if these vapour trails in the upper atmosphere are not to blame. Nice photo.

Thanks. I don't know what they do to the ecological environment, but they are certainly an asthetic nightmare. Last time I was at Monument valley, it was impossible to take pictures with the otherwise gorgeous southwestern sky in them vecause the vapor trails made the sky look like a crossword puzzle. Very annoying.
