Chemtrail Truthers Are Coming After Greta Thunberg - Daily Beast
Despite their shared interest in the weather, chemtrail believers and climate activists have little common ground. That, according to Peter Ditto, a professor of psychological science studying motivated reasoning at the University of California Irvine, can be chalked up to conservative politics

Ditto said climate denialism often functions "like a team sport." Although there's no moral argument against accepting climate data, "for other reasons, probably economic, the Republican party and conservative thinkers have decided they don't want to believe [climate change], that it's threatening to them," Ditto said. "There's such a team, tribal mentality in the United States right now that people just line up and say, `My side doesn't believe that... believing that is almost tantamount to treason, or betrayal.'"
