    chemtrails are getting to be like the chupacabra.....people say everything that they don't understand is one of them. There is very little consistency in either case.

    Was looking into this again.......looks like the ship wreck is still the best answer.

    This is the most current feedback from the investigation that I could find, seems its ongoing and they are not giving out any detailed updates yet...We are getting close to a year now since the incident occurred...

    What Caused the Toxic Cloud in Sussex?

    As yet, the cause remains unknown and investigations are ongoing. But with public concerns about pollution at an all-time high (as attested to by the impressive growth at this year's Air Quality and Emissions event), there will be pressure on the authorities to pinpoint the culprit and prevent a repeat performance from happening again in the future.

    Possible causes
    An investigation is ongoing into the cause of the mysterious mist, and although experts have yet to come to a definitive conclusion, there are a few theories floating around about what could have caused the cloud. These include:
    • Emissions from industrial plants on the continent. Due to chemical emissions from French industrial units arriving at British shores in the past, it was mooted that perhaps the same thing had happened again. However, Sussex Police have said that “weather models suggest that an onshore source in northern France is very unlikely”.
    • Passing ships in the Channel. Offshore sources, including passing vessels, are still being investigated. Around 180 different ships have been identified as passing through the Channel on the day in question, leading experts to surmise that one of these is the most likely source of the mist.
    • A wartime shipwreck. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) have since announced the possibility that chemicals from a sunken shipwreck may have been to blame. In particular, a WWI oil tanker SS Mira has been suggested as releasing a latent toxic plume into the area, which was subsequently blown towards Beachy Head. However, with 100 years having passed since the ship was initially downed, a release of chemicals at this stage remains unlikely.

    I'd say all are possible.....but this can't be discounted on time alone. How the fuel was stored and what was stored has a lot to do with it. The oil in the fuel bunkers of the Arizona are still an environmental nightmare waiting to happen.
