Government Weather Modification Program Makes North Dakota Wet

comp-1507031800  For individuals who still believe the government does not have the ability to control the weather, think again. Over the last four weeks residents in North Dakota may have witnessed a government weather modification program change their weather using chemtrails, sometimes by as much as 60%.

In fact, rain enhancement operations were suspended last week due to the wet conditions within many county’s of North Dakota.

The experiment was first announced on a local government state water commission website under the name ND Cloud Modification Project.

According to the government website, “the North Dakota Cloud Modification Project (NDCMP) is an operational program that seeds clouds for hail damage reduction and rain enhancement in western North Dakota. Counties currently participating in the program are Bowman, McKenzie, Mountrail, Ward, Williams, and part of Slope.”

While in the sky the aircraft release chemicals that are absorbed by nearby clouds allowing the program to adjust the weather to fit its cause, usually within 30 minutes.

The process called cloud seeding has been going on since since the 1940’s and often referred to as weather modification – the act of intentionally manipulating or altering the weather.  Some people may refer to them as “chemtrails” or chemical trails.

According to the programs Q & A guide “The North Dakota clouds are seeded with two different types of agents: silver iodide complexes, artificial ice nuclei that provide a crystalline structure on which supercooled liquid water (SLW) droplets can freeze; and dry ice (frozen carbon dioxide), which at -109°F is so cold that it helps create additional droplets from water vapor and freezes those droplets by thermal shock.”

“The radar meteorologist is the director of operations for cloud seeding missions. A number of factors play a part in the decision-making process, including safety criteria, radar information, pilot observations, and aircraft instrument data.”

“The most recent study of crop-hail insurance data suggests that the North Dakota project reduces crop-hail damage by 45 percent.”

Health concerns around chemicals used in cloud seeding have some people on-line concerned with possible side effects ranging from headaches and dizziness to skin rashes.

Under the guidelines of the Clean Water Act by the EPA, silver iodide is considered a hazardous substance, a priority pollutant, and as a toxic pollutant.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration says that average exposure for healthy adults during an eight-hour work day should not exceed 5,000 ppm (0.5%) of carbon dioxide.
