Now that hurricane Dorian is fading both on the weather map and the news, events turn to the rescue and recovery of those that suffered in its path. Still others in the conspiracy world are raising questions of what really happened during the events of Dorian. Not only the strange path of hurricane Dorian, but as well the seemingly strange manufactured stories that accompanied it. The conspiracy story says that the U.S. was secretly involved with weather modification in order to prevent a direct hit of Dorian on Florida.
One of the more bizarre stories was Sharpie-Gate. For those that didn’t follow Sharpie-Gate, it was another one of those Trump Twitter gun poops vs. the media. President Trump sent out a tweet regarding hurricane Dorian that said Alabama was in its path (cone). Trump further in a White House presser used a graphic where someone used a Sharpie to extend the possible effected cone of Dorian. The events of Dorian were obvious a moving target, perhaps the chart Trump used was not current, but nevertheless, Alabama originally was in the Dorian cone, then removed later. The media pounced on Trump, accusing him of putting out Fake News. Seems like all to do about nothing, but let the Twitter wars begin.
In the late 1940s and 1950s many deemed the deliberate or the inadvertent alteration of atmospheric conditions by human activity, also known as weather modification, as a promising science of the future. Currently, the most common form of weather modification is cloud seeding, which increases rain or snow, usually for the purpose of increasing the local water supply. Weather modification can also have the goal of preventing damaging weather, such as hail or hurricanes, from occurring (NOAA projects). Why not hurricanes?
If you follow the recent Dorian weather modification conspiracy, here is a list of strange events that caused this conspiracy to gain traction:
- The eradicate unusual path of Dorian. At first, it looked like a direct hit on Florida at a category 5 strength, then stalled for two days and then spun away.
- The St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant was in the direct path of Dorian. If Dorian hit at category 5 hurricane strength no one really knows what would have happened. Worst case another Fukashima, devasting the entire Florida peninsula.
- Weather modification Fake News stories by nuking hurricanes – the accusation Trump had suggested doing this. To divert attention?
- Sharpie-Gate – a media distraction created to divert attention from the erratic event of Dorian?
- Dorian could enable (or thwart depending on your view) Chinese infrastructure projects near U.S. shores – triggering potential national security concerns.
Then there is HAARP. There have experiments that have been conducted which use electromagnetic frequencies to fire pulsed, directed energy beams in order to “temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere,” to affect weather. Weather modification may become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally. This is not just conspiracy theories. The European Union called the project a global concern and passed a resolution calling for more information on its health and environmental risks. Despite those concerns, officials at HAARP insist the project is nothing more sinister than a radio science research facility.
But all this needs to be kept secret. Why? If in fact, the U.S. government did some kind of seeding of the eye of Dorian to cause it to stall, wobble and alter its path, think of the political impacts and the legal liability the U.S. would have to the people of the Bahamas. Choosing who is to live or die based upon population density and the saving of infrastructure makes a lot of sense logically, but a hard sell politically. If they are doing weather modification in this way, you will never hear about.
Weaponization is another issue, though not unheard of much. Operation Popeye was a highly classified weather modification program during the Vietnam War (1967 – 1972). The U.S. attempted to extend the monsoon season, specifically over areas of the Ho Chi Minh Trail in order to make it difficult for travel on resupply routes of the U.S enemy at the time. This eventually led to an agreement to stop this war tactic in 1978 under the Environmental Modification Convention. Today this weaponization of weather modification is most likely still observed However, civilian use is another matter.
News Forecasters does not have the inside track on whether this weather modification conspiracy is true or false. However, one does have to pause and wonder. News Forecasters gives this about a 10 – 20% possibility of being true – understanding that if the technology exists in would not be a 100% guaranteed success if tried. Going forward, News Forecasters believes weather modifications will become a reality over the next 10 to 20 years.
