ALEXA WAS SPREADING CONSPIRACY THEORIES....ABOUT CHEMTRAILS
It's being reported that Amazon's Alexa spreads a conspiracy theory when you ask her about chemtrails. (But that's because the definition of "chemtrail" is itself a conspiracy theory. There's no such thing as a chemtrail, there are only contrails.)
Let's be clear, here. Chemtrails are not "biological agents deliberately sprayed" by "government officials," despite what the popular conspiracy theory touts.
A study published in the journal Environmental Research Letters concluded that the theory was bunk. The study found that 76 out of 77 atmospheric chemists and geochemists had found no evidence supporting a chemical spraying program by aircraft.
Rather, chemtrails are actually contrails, a visible cloud-like trail produced by aircraft when heat and water vapor is emitted in the cold, dry upper atmosphere.
UPDATE: April 11, 2018, 5:36 p.m. EDT The prompt has been fixed. An Amazon rep said in an email "This was an error and has since been corrected."
