There's a common belief that "normal" contrails cannot persist. But why do people think this?

If you look back at any book on clouds in the last 70 years they will tell you that contrail sometimes fade away, and sometimes persist and spread out over the sky.

So if someone tells you that contrails can't persist, ask yourself what is more likely:

A) He is mistaken
B) All the books on clouds for the past 70 years are mistaken.

I know it only shows books going back 57 years and I say "70 years" in the video. My 1940s books were on order, and can be seen at the link below.
