Bloomberg Business gives us more proof that modifying the weather has not only been happening, but it’s now big business!
Thanks to DavRick Dunn for sending me this article. He in fact posted it as a comment on my post “A 1966 U.S. GOVERNMENT DOCUMENT WITH THE SUBJECT: WEATHER MODIFICATION PROGRAM”.
The article in Bloomberg Business, “Weather on Demand: Making It Rain Is Now a Global Business Welcome to the strange world of cloud seeding” by Amanda Little, is more confirmation that the spraying in our skies is in fact used to alter the weather. It is no longer a conspiracy.
The article interviews Patrick Sweeney, who is the chief executive of “Weather Modification Inc., the world’s largest private aerial cloud-seeding company, based in Fargo, N.D.” Sweeney is hired to help solve a drought problem in India. His experience lines up with the needs since, “Sweeney has seeded clouds all over the world for more than 20 years,” the article references.
The images in the article is quite telling. It is the first time I’ve ever seen images this close explaining how and showing exactly what they use to spray in our skies.
There are 24 cylinders resembling sticks of dynamite wired to racks on the plane’s wings, 12 on each. The flares are filled with combustible sodium chloride—pulverized table salt mixed with a flammable potassium powder. When the switch is flipped, the end of the flare shoots orange fire and trillions of superfine salt particles are released into the cloud. Water molecules are attracted to salt, so they bond to the particles and coalesce into raindrops.
Bloomberg Business holds back no punches with information regarding the fact that there is more than one company in the industry of weather modification.
They do have competitors. There are 34 private companies worldwide that do weather modification, but there’s no bigger rival in aerial cloud seeding than the Chinese government,
Other excerpts from the article referencing cold-weather seeding.
Cold-weather seeding is done at the core of snow clouds that can reach altitudes as high as 60,000 feet: Flares filled with tiny flakes of silver iodide are ejected into the clouds’ centers. Silver iodide has a molecular structure similar to that of ice. As the silver particles drift down through the clouds, water gloms onto them as it would to ice, and snowflakes grow.
