What is an electrical arc?

When electricity jumps between two conducting electrodes, such as two exposed pieces of wire, it makes an electrical arc. The air between the electrodes becomes ionised, allowing electrons to jump across and create a visual “bridge”. An electrical arc can produce high heat and a powerful light, making it useful in areas such as welding. Lightning is an example of a naturally occurring electric arc; the atmosphere is ionised and creates the visual spectacle.

    …Except Toluene and other carcinogens are mixed with the basic fuel, ‘think tanking’ creates a “beneficial” reason for them to be in the fuel (sic), then they are run through the jet engine and disposed of in the upper atmosphere.

    That is why contrails are now referred to as Chemtrails.
