How much do contrails contribute to cloud formation? Very considerably I believe. Is this a good thing? Cloud cover reflects the heat from the sun does it not? So does this help reduce global warming? Does it follow then, that the more flights there are the better? I can’t imagine that’s right. Is it? I obviously don’t know. The chemistry must be complex. It’s certainly beyond me. I just like the look of contrails. ‘Kisses in the sky’ I heard someone call them - that’s a bit kitsch for my taste, but it takes all sorts.
