At each reshuffle, his controversy... In appointing the deputy PRG des Hautes-Alpes (05), Joël Giraud, known for its serious budgetary as well as for her joviality, the secretary of State to Rural areas, the government does not expect to see to exhume a new archive to be annoying, and even less of this nature. Appointed on 26 July, the former deputy mayor, a member of the radical Party of the left (PRG), was sent, in November 2013, a surreal question to the government of the time, relaying of complotistes who doubted the phenomenon of " chemtrails ", those white streaks left in the sky by airplanes. "Officially," wrote Joel Giraud, these streaks are considered to be traces of condensation left by planes. [...] But some hypothesize that it would be the spraying of chemicals causing addition of respiratory disease in the populations overflown. "And enjoining the government to provide a response to the" questions legitimately raised "on the original "mysterious" of these traces, accrediting the idea that it was actually the ladle under there.
a Few months later, he explained his approach to the site Agence Info libre: It's been a while since I asked these questions because I saw things a little weird in the sky. I looked on the Internet, on sites of alternative media. I listened to the theory of chemtrails. "These rumors are born in the United States in the 1990s and accusing authorities or companies to disperse chemicals on the population to manipulate the climate, or health, and then recovered in Europe by a few enlightened followers of conspiracy theories, it seemed at the time to be credible and worthy of interest. "But I'm rational ", says he then. "I also think that with the system low cost in airlines, it can make also the additives in the kerosene for a way to earn money..." The complotisme pure juice, to which the government will bother to respond until months later, explaining patiently to the member, the scientific sources to support, that these white streaks " correspond to a condensation of water from the atmosphere in the crystal around the emission normal to the plane ".
Well, he is not asked to no longer be a graduate of chemistry.
now a member of the government did it ? "There has been a tendency in France not to ask enough questions ", saw it in 2014. And to insinuate, " Look at Chernobyl. If France had said, as in Italy, "eat more, some products may have been irradiated" ", ignorant, without doubt, that the accident has not been, in France, any result proven on the public health.
Contacted by The Dot to clarify its current thinking, Joël Giraud has not responded. The ministry of territorial Cohesion, which he joined today, no one was aware of these surprising beliefs of the secretary of State. "The choice fell on him because he has been mayor and member of parliament for eighteen years. It is a connoisseur of local finances, and communities. "Embarrassed, an advisor in another department to admit :" well, we don't ask it to no longer be a graduate of chemistry, but it is quite revealing of the scientific level of our political class.
