Airplane contrails causing global warming?

Wired News: Climate Change Out of the Blue

I have never heard this before. The article suggests that the trails left by airplanes are increasing the cirrus cloud cover which then causes additional heat to be trapped. It references a NASA study. Interesting.

On a related note, I must go see 'The Day After Tomorrow' on May 28th or whenever it opens. I love world-destruction-themed movies with expansive visuals (think Independence Day, Armageddon, AI). Wonder what that says about me.
