5 June 2016 – Transparency eliminates conspiracy and with Transparency comes accountability – Weather Modification (cloud seeding)

Hello!

Just wanted to share with you some information I found in my quest to go from conspiracy theory to fact regarding the issue of weather modification (cloud seeding, chemtrails etc). and yep…..it’s a real thing and apparently activity is increasing which would explain the drastic increase in flooding every damn where to include the Louvre in Paris France.  I am not deep into this stuff, meaning there is a ALOT I do not know about what this is, but I am left asking “where are the fucking regulators?!!!”  I don’t remember seeing any of this up for vote ANYWHERE.  The “Theys” just decided to do it and now we have floods!  Why?!  I’m speculating here, but probably because there are too many independent contractors for this at different levels of quality and they are not coordinating their operations SO….we….the uninformed and excluded get to pay higher insurance bills, pay higher taxes to fund the operations we don’t know are sanctioned, pay for repairs to our damaged property and get to bury the dead that die in the floods they are making.  WTF?!!! I was pretty sure the X’s in the sky and the “arcs of white” like the one over my house this morning, were no coincidence but secretly I hoped it was nothing.  I hoped it was all just conspiracy and nothing to it…..nope.  Another one of those things kept hidden from us for “our own good” and look at the mess now.

Honestly I just don’t even know what to do anymore.  All my fellow living beings and I under assault from every direction and nowhere to go.  Is this weather modification a feeble attempt to “make things right” and “restore balance” or is it desperation on the part of the likes of fossil fuel?  Did you know it takes about 10 million gallons of water, per well, to frack a natural gas well?  Where do you think a lot of the drinking water in our aquifers has been going and not coming back….until now.

I know, it’s all a stretch but I didn’t used to worry about playing in the rain until now!  Sigh.

If you are still with me here (thank you), below are some resources to learn more about all this.  Honestly, if there is no malice intended with these operations and they are genuinely trying to do a “good thing” fine, thank you! Please inform the public and get us up to speed so we know what’s going on and can give our input…TRANSPARENCY ELIMINATES CONSPIRACY!

Idaho Power Co. crews maintain a cloud seeding generators in the mountains above Garden Valley, Idaho. The Idaho Water Resource Board and the state’s irrigators are stepping up their contributions to the utility’s program.

BOISE — Idaho water managers have stepped up funding to help Idaho Power Co. continue building a cloud seeding program that’s already been credited with making sizable contributions to the state’s mountain snowpack.

The program releases silver iodide into the atmosphere, either from 53 remotely operated ground-based generators or from three leased aircraft, to serve as additional ice nuclei in the clouds and enhance precipitation. Idaho Power estimates additional snowpack resulting from the program, which it started in 2003, yields an average of 800,000 acre-feet of water — which is roughly half the volume of American Falls Reservoir and generates enough hydro-power to supply 17,000 homes.

Idaho Power engineering leader Jon Bowling said heading forward, irrigation organizations, the Idaho Water Resource Board and Idaho Power will each shoulder roughly a third of the program’s cost.

“We wouldn’t want our customers to bear the full cost of a program other stakeholders benefit from,” Bowling said. “I think we’ve had a pretty good reception to the collaborative funding mechanism.”

The board contributed $500,000 two years ago to help the program add infrastructure and followed with another $200,000 last year toward adding an airplane on a pilot-project basis for cloud seeding in the Upper Snake River Basin, said Brain Patton, Planning Bureau manager with the Idaho Department of Water Resources. Patton said the board voted May 20 to increase its Fiscal Year 2017 cloud seeding funding to $600,000, to be spread across the Eastern Snake, Boise and Wood River and Payette basins.

Idaho Ground Water Appropriators, Inc., made its first commitment to the program this season, totaling $45,000. Water District 1, which encompasses the Upper Snake system, contributed $200,000, it will continue to contribute toward a county-supported program in Eastern Idaho using manual generators, run by High Country Resource, Conservation and Development. Water District 63, which includes Boise River system, and Wood River water users each contributed $125,000.

Lyle Swank, watermaster with Water District 1, said his district’s contribution toward Idaho Power’s cloud seeding program represents 20 percent of its total budget, but members voted to assess themselves and contribute, nonetheless.

“When we can extract a little extra moisture from the atmosphere, that can be really helpful,” Swank said.

Bowling said Idaho Power is working with the National Center for Atmospheric Research to develop a model guiding operations and providing a cloud seeding benefit analysis.

Shaun Parkinson, Idaho Power’s water resources leader, estimates this winter’s program added 11.5 percent extra snow-water equivalent in the Payette Basin and 9.4 percent more moisture in the Boise Basin as of April 15, plus 4 to 5.4 percent more moisture in the Upper Snake as of April 1. He anticipates adding about three more generators to the program next winter, and eventually expects to include a fourth plane.

“It’s a new era in terms of collaboration and it remains to be seen who all will come to the table and join in,” Parkinson said.

Weather Modification

Military Service Members, Veterans, and Spouses – For more information about obtaining a TDLR license or renewing a TDLR license that expired while serving on active duty, please go to the Military Outreach home page.

The Weather Modification Advisory Committee met January 28 in Austin. The agenda is available online. The meeting was archived and is available on TDLR’s YouTube channel.

Weather Modification – Cloud-seeding activities are widespread in much of West and South Texas during the growing season, which extends from early spring until early autumn each year. The seeding is done exclusively for rainfall enhancement using aircraft and sophisticated weather radar data. Decisions to deploy aircraft and disperse seeding materials (both silver iodide and salts) are made by skilled meteorologists licensed by TDLR specifically for weather modification. Aircraft are based at airports in disparate locations within the “target” areas of these projects, i.e. where the impact of seeding (more rainfall from thunderstorms) is intended.

TDLR’s weather modification program issues licenses and permits for these projects, most of which have been in operation 15 to 20 years. The licenses attest to the credentials and experience of the meteorologists who direct the seeding operations, while the permits pertain to specific regions where seeding is intended and where aircraft may operate. A licensee may conduct more than one project, each of which requires a specific permit be issued before seeding can begin. The aim of regulating weather modification in Texas is to ensure that various methods of modifying the weather do not dissipate clouds nor inhibit their ability to produce rainfall to the detriment of people or property in the affected areas.

TDLR’s program also assists individuals, organizations and governmental bodies in the design of cloud-seeding operations, as well as monitoring ongoing seeding activities to ensure compliance with permits and helping to evaluate the impact of the seeding on “target” and neighborhood areas. It also administers federal grants for exploratory, and confirmatory, cloud-seeding studies and shares information on technological advances with other State agencies, organizations, and interested individuals.

Weather Modification Regulation

All individuals and organizations intending to conduct weather modification activities are required to obtain a weather modification license and permit from the TDLR. George Bomar (512-936-4313; George.Bomar@tdlr.texas.gov) is the contact person at TDLR for information on, and assistance with, the licensing and permitting of weather modification operations.

The Department relies on its staff, as well as the Weather Modification Advisory Committee, for recommendations on applications for weather modification licenses and permits. The Committee, consisting of an engineer, businessmen, attorney at law, and agricultural producer, meets quarterly, usually in Austin, to review applications for licenses and permits.

NOW – about this!  This is why I think there hasn’t been transparency because with TRANSPARENCY COMES RESPONSIBILITY (Accountability)!  If Texas has contracted cloud seeders and they “overdid it” and are responsible for the floods all over the state and the stuff that is now headed East, who is responsible?  Who is held accountable to the victims and their families?  Where these soldiers just collateral damage?  I think not! 

When you start mucking around with the balance of Mother Nature be prepared for the consequences of the imbalance you have created!

My condolences, prayers and loving intentions go out to all of these young men and women’s families and friends and ALL who have been suffering from recent weather related disasters.  It feels like this could have been prevented. 

*Here’s a “far out” for you – what is going on with lightning strikes lately?  Wouldn’t this be a story — clouds are “alive” and lightning is their weapon.  If you look at lightning, isn’t it a lot like brain synapses firing?  Hmmmmmm.  Or here is a real mind-screw….what if someone has learned how to use lightning as a weapon?

Germany rock festival cancelled after lightning strike

The third and final day of the sell-out Rock am Ring music festival in Germany has been cancelled after lightning hurt at least 80 fans, organisers say.

They say the decision was taken after more bad weather was forecast.

Performances were suspended on Saturday during continued thunderstorms, forcing many of the 92,000 fans at the open-air event to shelter in cars and tents.

Organisers were forced to cancel it after local authorities revoked its licence early on Sunday morning.

They said on Facebook (in German) that they regretted the decision but accepted it was necessary because the safety of fans was of paramount importance.

Critics on Facebook have accused organisers of not cancelling the event quickly enough.
