Guardian Warns People Against Believing Chemtrails Behind Dubai Floods

The government has admitted for a long time that they do chemtrails to change the weather. China was doing it years ago and talking about it and they stopped because it kept creating problems. The weather is a fickle mistress, it turns out.

Years ago, there was the chemtrails conspiracy that everyone was being sprayed with drugs by chemtrails. That probably is not true, but various countries are definitely making it rain.

There is also a lot of discussion around potentially releasing particulate matter into the atmosphere to block out the sun and someone stop “global warming.” Some people think this is already happening. It’s not totally clear if that’s the case.

Dubai is being flooded right now, and The Guardian wants to make one thing clear: don’t believe that this is a result of chemtrails.

It would be morally wrong to believe something like that.

The Guardian:

Severe floods inundated the United Arab Emirates this week, as a storm dumped the largest amount of rainfall the country has seen in more than 75 years, the government said.

A record 254mm (10in) of rainfall dropped in Al Ain, a city bordering Oman – more than the country sees on average in a year. Highways turned to rivers as drivers abandoned stuck vehicles, homes and businesses have been damaged, and flights at one of the world’s busiest airports have been significantly disrupted. Twenty people have reportedly been killed, and the recovery is expected to be slow: in a place known for its dry desert climate and hot temperatures where rain is rare, many areas lack drainage.

While extreme weather falls in line with the patterns climate scientists have long warned about, questions have swirled about whether cloud seeding – a process that pushes clouds to produce more precipitation by releasing chemicals or salt particles into the air – could instead be to blame for the catastrophic storms.

It could also be neither. It’s not like floods are something new.

These same people keep saying hurricanes are a result of global warming, even though hurricanes have been lessening in severity for decades (they just do more damage because of more cheap buildings along the coast).

It’s not just in the UAE. As torrential downpours pelted California over the last two years, online communities were abuzz with speculation over whether the state’s cloud-seeding program was the cause.

Experts and officials, meanwhile, have repeatedly denied the possibility. Here’s what to know.

What is cloud seeding?

To talk about cloud seeding, we first must talk about clouds themselves. Composed of tiny ice crystals or water droplets, clouds form when water vapor cools in the atmosphere. Precipitation, or the water that falls to the surface as rain or snow, occurs when these droplets condense and combine with particles of dust, salt or smoke. That binding creates a drop or a snowflake (composed of millions of these droplets) that can fall from a cloud.

Cloud seeding is a decades-old weather-modification strategy that adds these binding agents to the atmosphere, in an attempt to get more precipitation to fall. It is used by countries around the world, usually in areas that are facing drought concerns. The process can be done from the ground, with generators, or with planes.

Meteorologists monitor the clouds closely before they are seeded, both to produce the best outcome and to time rains correctly with when they are needed most.

The Desert Research Institute (DRI), a non-profit in Nevada, uses silver iodide, a compound that their scientists say exists naturally in the environment and isn’t harmful, which is burned or dropped with aircraft to reach the clouds. The UAE, which started its cloud-seeding program back in the 1990s, uses a kilogram of salt material components, CNBC reported, which is burned and shot into clouds from specially equipped aircraft. “Our specialized aircrafts only use natural salts, and no harmful chemicals,” the UAE’s National Center of Meteorology (NCM) told CNBC in March.

Did cloud seeding cause the heavy rain?

In short, scientists say no.

In a statement issued to multiple news outlets, the NCM, which oversees cloud-seeding operations in the UAE, said there were no such cloud-seeding operations before or during the storm.

Omar Al Yazeedi, the deputy director general of the NCM, said: “We did not engage in any seeding operations during this particular weather event. The essence of cloud seeding lies in targeting clouds at an earlier stage, prior to precipitation. Engaging in seeding activities during a severe thunderstorm scenario would prove futile.”

Again, you can dig into the history of the Chinese testing this stuff, and it was doing things like creating floods, which is why they stopped it.

It’s not really reasonable to accept “scientists say” in this situation. In fact, you should accept that in any situation. These people are proven liars and hoaxsters. Scientists are basically just a form of cop at this point.

Again, it’s unclear if chemtrails to block out the sun are actually a thing. The Alex Jones documentary above is at least interesting.

You certainly cannot blame anyone for asking questions regarding this matter.
