We have all seen the massive snowstorm all over the news. This record breaking snowstorm has caused unbelievable damage:
After Winter Storm Jonas crippled areas across the East Coast with ice, high winds and flooding, millions of Americans have been trying to dig themselves out of the aftermath. At least 27 people have died in the storm, a quarter of a million customers have lost power and hundreds of crashes have been reported. Travel bans barring non-emergency vehicles from the roads of New York City and Baltimore were lifted by early morning, and mass transit systems that had been partially suspended during the storm were scheduled to run again. But even as United Airlines said limited service might begin later in the afternoon in New York City, airports in the Washington D.C. area were likely to remain closed Sunday, and other airlines started to cut Monday service in addition to the 9,500 already-canceled weekend flights. Winter Storm Jonas: At Least 27 Dead, Travel Slowly Getting Back on Track
The death toll is up to 30 now: At Least 30 Killed in Snowstorm-Related Deaths
The majority of talking heads on lame-stream media and even the Governor of New York are all blaming this storm on climate change and global warming.
What if I told you this storm is not just an act of God, but an act of men?
Every year in the United States of America, hundreds of counties, water districts, and ski resorts pay for weather modification to create additional now using ground-based cloud-seeding generators. Here is the anatomy of a cloud seeding generator and some photos of different types across the west coast:
This artificial snow is “necessary” for the water starved west coast as it melts in the spring and feeds streams and canals, not to mention you can’t ski on dirt. Here is how “orographic cloud seeding” works:
However, each year we also see massive flooding and snowstorms all over the east coast and this is no coincidence.
When you see the massive scale of cloud seeding operations on the west coast you will understand that they are, at least, partially responsible for the loss of life and economic damage on the east coast.
I will now present the names of the companies modifying the weather, where it happens, and who paid for it.
Here are the ground-based cloud-seeding generators I have found so far as seen on my map ClimateViewer 3D:
