    Default Are we feeling the effects of the 2008 Chinese Olympics in our weather?

    I was listening to the local radio morning show (waltonandjohnson.com) this morning when they brought up how the Chinese kept it from raining during the Olympics and suggested that the Obama administration could be doing the same thing here in Texas to hurt the state economy (all Gulf states actually).

    I am not suggesting that I believe that particular part, but it made me look up the topic as I remember as a kid hearing about 'cloud seeding' and couldn't remember the ins-and-outs of the concept. Here is the link for the page I pulled up:

    http://science.howstuffworks.com/nat...ud-seeding.htm

    What it got me to thinking is this : According to this article, if they successfully got it to NOT rain during a rainy season, wouldn't they try to make up for it afterward? And if it is correct in its assumption that if moisture is forced out of the atmosphere in one place it is replaced from somewhere else then it would be safe to think that the beyond extreme drought we are experiencing here now could be caused by China's cloud seeding (if they are actually doing this).

    I know this has ALOT of variables that cannot be confirmed but it is just one of the things my mind took off with when I was reminded of cloud seeding.

    I hope that doesn't sound too 'conspiracy-theory' to anyone. If I was into that type of stuff I would have suggested that the Russians and Chinese together are seeding to take water away from the entire USA...or that they are pumping fresh water into covered reserviors to keep it from evaporating into the atmosphere, thus making themselves the Saudi Arabia of water.
    Those would be the 'conspiracy theory' stuff I would never think of.

    I don't know...does any of that make any sense to anyone?

    Cloud seeding/weather control has always been something people and gov'ts have been trying to do. NOAA tried seeding the eyes of hurricanes ages ago to try and get them to collapse/weaken, but the results were questionable at best. They tried seeding in the severe SoFla drought as well in the 80's, with zero results.

    It is difficult making sense of something that we cannot explain. I have observed some very strange things concerning this subject though which have certainly made me wonder just wtf is going on.

    Not about the Chinese gov't though, but rather our own.

    Any of you heard of HAARP? I'm sure you have, but it is an ionespheric steerable beam heater stationed in Alaska.
    The official claim is that is nothing more than a harmless military radio transmission experiment. Try looking it up on Google maps, or any other app for that matter, and the whole area is blacked out.
    It's been claimed for years under Tesla's original model (Which was to provide drought stricken areas with rain) as a weather control machine, or more accurately, by heating the atmosphere in key areas, you could control the airstreams/jetstreams, therefore completely starving a particular area of rain, or flooding an area with rain.

    Ventura did a pretty over the top Conspiracy Theory show on it, but I've been interested in this project since 92' when I first heard about it.
    I suppose if this thing does what Tesla originally intended, it could very well do some damage in the wrong hands.
    On the other hand, maybe I should just take another hit of acid, and not worry about the weather!
    It be nice and warm outside!

    Here's what the skies of Denver looked like today as I drove into town... In every direction for hundreds of miles in the skies above Denver.

    These trails all forming into clouds. And now the skies are fully overcast.



    Everywhere you looked the sky was filled with these "contrails" or "chemtrails", or whatever they are. As I observed I noticed that passenger planes flying in and out of DIA were not leaving these trails, but the several planes flying well beyond DIA and crisscrossing back and forth were all leaving these giant trails which all then formed into clouds. Every cloud in the sky was formed out of a trail, and now it is fully overcast because of it.

    Yeah, I know. I'm just tripping on acid. Whatever.

    This never happened when I was growing up. A contrail was a contrail. Not anymore.

    I've observed this happening quite frequently. People all around are clueless to what's going on above their heads though cause they never bother looking up and actually observing what's happening.

    Fucking weird. Yeah, I know, I'm tripping on acid.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Shit ain't right.

    I have never seen contrails with little mini-clouds hanging off of them like those.

    Interesting video.

    Default spraying chemicals from planes...

    Russians test weather-altering technology to control Olympic snow

    SOCHI, Russia -- Russia was embarking on an experiment with weather-altering technology in an attempt to control the snowfall at the country's first Winter Olympics in 2014, the RIA Novosti news agency reported Friday.

    The Games will be hosted in 2014 in the Black Sea resort of Sochi and organizers are desperate to avoid the effect of unpredictable weather that played havoc at the Vancouver Olympics last year.

    Russia has used weather-altering practices before, spraying chemicals from planes to provoke precipitation, a tactic officials use in Moscow and St. Petersburg, but it has never attempted them in the North Caucasus mountain range above Sochi.

    A network of stationary and mobile data stations has been deployed in the mountains above Sochi, a resort on the Black Sea that will host Russia's first ever Winter Games, a statement on the Natural Resources Ministry website said.

    "The need to conduct investigations comes from the fact that the 'weather has never been made' in mountainous locations," the Ministry said.

    A concern for the Sochi Olympics - as with any winter sport competition - is guaranteeing a minimum quantity of snow.
