Fox News advocating weather modification; is it still a conspiracy theory?

Source:  End The Lie

Apparently weather modification is only a conspiracy theory when the alternative media talks about it, even when the existence of the practice is completely and totally irrefutable.

When we discuss weather modification (also known as geoengineering) and associated projects it is a paranoid conspiracy theory. When Murdoch-owned Fox News talks about it, it is a legitimate choice to help stem the tide of wildfires sweeping the state of Texas.

As the video reveals, weather modification is nothing new. The woman featured in the clip mentions that the state of Texas stopped being able to match funds for the program in 2002, meaning that the program is at least 8-9 years old.

In reality, weather modification has been in use for decades, going all the way back to the Vietnam War with a U.S. military cloud seeding project known as Operation Popeye, Project Popeye, Motorpool, and Intermediary-Compatriot.

The projects ran from 1966 to 1972 and used the exact same technology mentioned in the Fox News video: silver iodide. This technology worked as planned all the way back in the 60s, so hearing people dispute the reality of weather modification in modern times is laughable at best.

It is interesting to see how vehemently the mainstream corporate controlled media denies the existence of weather modification, especially in the form of so-called “chemtrails”.

Even when the same news channels will cover weather modification and even go so far as to praise its efficacy, they still have the gall to attempt to call chemtrails a conspiracy theory.

How can any news outlet or self-respecting journalist look at a plane engaging in cloud seeding with silver iodide, an irrefutable fact, and then in the same breath claim that weather modification and chemtrails are a conspiracy theory?

A great example of such Orwellian doublethink can be seen in the Wikipedia article devoted to weather modification.

Under the heading of “conspiracy theories” it is mentioned that so-called conspiracy theorists “question the possibility of using weather control as a weapon”.

Yet, Operation Popeye was a real project which indeed used weather modification as a weapon against the Vietnamese. This is clearly not a conspiracy theory. There is no theory involved in stating an irrefutable fact.

Will the mainstream media stop pretending it is a paranoid delusion to acknowledge a fact? Or, will they continue to systematically deceive and confuse the American public? Unfortunately, I think it is the latter.

  1. This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the US department of engergy. I think took a shower in the clean water provided by the municipal water utility. After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC regulated channels to see what the national weather service of the national oceanographic and atmospheric administration determined the weather was going to be like using satellites designed, built, and launched by the national aeronautics and space admisitration. I watched this while eating my breakfast of US department of agriculture inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the food and drug administration.

    At the appropriate time as regulated by the US congress and kept accurate by the national institute of standards and technology and the US naval observatory, I get into my national highway traffic safety administration approved automobile and set out to work on the roads built by the local, state, and federal departments of transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the environmental protection agency, using legal tender issued by the federal reserve bank. On the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to be sent out via the US postal service and drop the kids off at the publicly funded school.

    After work, I drive my NHTSA car back home on the DOT roads, to my house which has not burned down in my absence because of the state and local building codes and fire marshall’s inspection, and which has not been plundered of all it’s valuables thanks to the local police department.

    I then log on to the internet which was developed by the defence advanced research projects administration and post on Yahoo Answers and Fox News forums about how SOCIALISM in medicine is BAD because the government can’t do anything right.

    Socialism just does not work.

    I thought this quote was very accurate “Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.” – Thomas Jefferson

    Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog? My blog site is in the very same niche as yours and my users would definitely benefit from some of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this ok with you. Thanks!

    • Of course! Please notice that pretty much every article I post is from somewhere else. Like a LOT of other news blogs and sites, you’ll find that I “raid” worldwide news sources (I have my favorites) and simply paste them to my blog. This way, if readers don’t frequently visit ALL the sites I do, they can just view my blog and, I think, get a much clearer idea of what is really going on in our world. Since I charge nothing, and almost all of my posts are written by numerous authors, and I post the link to the source, I don’t believe I am violating any copyright laws… I am actually increasing the readership of all those journalists and authors! I really do enjoy writing myself, and I do, but I haven’t had the time to really sit down and spill my thoughts onto the screen… though my goal is to do just that soon. For now, I just post articles from all over, hoping to get a reaction and some discussion about it. However, I miss a LOT of stuff, so if you run across any relevant articles, published studies, or excerpts from books, let me know and we can BOTH post it! Thanks for visiting!

  4. Great post and great detail to the facts. Once the mainstream media is owned and operated by “regular people” we won’t have these issues. But just look at the major corporations that own the media outlets. They tell just what we want to hear, or devert our attention to stupid stuff like Britney Spears love life. It’s so crazy that people fall for this form of misdirection all the time.
