I wanted to know when people first noticed the spraying of our skies, so on March 29, 2018, I asked my 5,000 Facebook friends, “When and where did you first notice the spraying?”
Within two days, I had 331 data points showing a five-fold increase from the 1980s to 1990s – confirming anecdotal evidence that the covert program was massively expanded in the 1990s. Needless to say, it increased since then.
I made a graph of when people first noticed the spraying by year, and where people did not give the exact year, I assigned a year in the date range. Therefore, when someone reported “mid-90s” I assigned 1995. “Late 90s” became 1999, “early 2000s” became 2002 and so on. But that produced spikes in the graph, so to make a more accurate graph, I made another showing first reports by decade.
