“Heavy Wet Snow” Is Now Often The Norm
Why does it now so often start snowing at temperatures far above freezing temperatures? Why is that? Why does the Weather Channel now so often refer to snow events as "heavy wet snow" events? Have the laws of physics changed? Does ice now nucleate in the clouds at temperatures far higher than what natural laws have always dictated? Why does this "heavy wet snow" now occur so often in locations where the trees have not even begun to drop their leaves thus decimating them? If the trees have not even started dropping their leaves, wouldn't that indicate it has not yet become cold? How can it begin to snow at temps in the 40s, high 40s, and even sometimes in the low 50's? Artificial ice nucleation is how.
Don't think this is possible? Think again. The article on the link below outlines openly what the Chinese can and have been experimenting with. Creating artificial snow storms from what should have fallen as rain. This is called "artificial ice nucleation". This process appears to already be quite advanced. NASA has a patent titled "Ice Nucleation For Weather Modification" and can be found on the geoengineeringwatch.org site . If the Chinese have openly and successfully conducted such "experimentation", are we believe that the US government is not fully capable? The correct chemical mixes can and do create ice from what was room temperature. How about that "ice pack" sitting in your first aid kit just waiting to be activated? Radar images of migrating rain cells that suddenly "flash out" to snow for no apparent reason are now commonly seen on various weather station radar images. This is occurring without the presence of mountains, colliding cold fronts, or freezing temperatures period. This can only be the result of aircraft dispersed chemicals above the clouds. Though temperatures do often drop precipitously as the ice nucleation process unfolds and the chemical process begins to cool the surrounding air, "heavy wet snow" can begin to fall at temps up to 50 degrees
If there is another plausible explanation for the now all to common above freezing temperature snow storms happening across the US and other regions around the globe, I have yet to see it.
Scientists in China create an articifial snowstorm by seeding clouds with chemicals , but weather experts warn "No one can tell how much weather manipulation will change the sky".
CHINESE scientists have artificially induced the second major snowstorm to wreak havoc in Beijing this season, state media said today, reigniting debate over the practice of tinkering with Mother Nature.
After the earliest snow to hit the capital in 22 years fell on November 1, the capital was again shrouded in white yesterday with more snow expected in the coming three days, the National Meteorological Centre said.
The China Daily, citing an unnamed official, said the Beijing Weather Modification Office had artificially induced both storms by seeding clouds with chemicals, a practice that can increase precipitation by up to 20 per cent.
The office refused to comment on the report when contacted by AFP.
Yesterday, an official had said the storm was "natural".
City weather officials have previously said that such methods are aimed at alleviating a drought over much of north China, including Beijing, that has lingered for more than a decade.
But residents have griped about the flight delays, traffic snarls, cancelled classes and other inconveniences of a surprise snow storm, saying officials could warn them if they are planning to toy with the clouds.
Beyond the day-to-day hassles, experts said the weather manipulation had other undesirable side-effects in the longer term, the paper reported.
"No one can tell how much weather manipulation will change the sky," Xiao Gang, a professor in the Institute of Atmospheric Physics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, told the paper.
"We should not depend too much on artificial measures to get rain or snow, because there are too many uncertainties up in the sky."
Zhao Nan, a Beijing engineer, was quoted as saying the more than 5500 tonnes of erosive snow-melting chloride used on city roads yesterday – nearly half the annual allotment – could "erode steel structures of buildings".
In 2005, the snow-melting agent was responsible for killing 10,000 trees in Beijing and decimating 200,000 square metres of grassland, the paper said, citing official statistics.
Despite a massive effort to clear the capital of snow that involved over 15,000 workers, many roads remained blocked, while highways into Beijing and in neighbouring Hebei and Shanxi provinces were closed, state press reports said.
