Nobody in this photo is smiling, and few people realize that every winter day could be a powder day. Seriously.
Egon Spengler: There’s something very important I forgot to tell you.
Spengler: Don’t cross the streams.
Spengler: It would be bad.
Venkman: I’m fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, “bad”?
Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
Ray Stantz: Total protonic reversal.
Venkman: Right. That’s bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.
At 9am on Sunday, January 12th, 2014 the streams got crossed at JHMR when “the longest tram line ever” intersected “the longest gondola line ever”. I’ve got “longest ever” in quotes because there may have been longer lines in the past, but every lifer I’ve interviewed described both lines as such, and, to the best of my knowledge, a JH “crossing of the streams” has never happened before.
This shocking and unprecedented event arose from a combination of factors: 1) 36″ of fresh snow in 72 hours, 2) frothing JH weekend warriors, 3) high avy danger in the Teton backcountry, and 4) a lack of snow at most Western resorts (notably in California).
A stroll through the parking lot at JHMR or atop Teton Pass reveals a major influx of California and Colorado plates: committed powderhounds temporarily self-exiled to Wyoming in search of a few perfect turns. Most Jacksonites are happy to take their money.
A growing minority realizes that their money is actually paper currency controlled by a profit-driven private banking cartel and that paper currency is fundamentally worth less than worthless…
… but back to the point at hand.
It floors me how hundreds of people will wake before dawn on a Sunday, rush to get ready, spend $100 on a lift ticket (if they don’t already have a $1700 season pass), and then stand around in line for an hour or two in hopes of linking together a few virgin turns on a rapidly raped mountainside.
The cultural phenomenon of a powder day at Jackson Hole Resort befuddles me almost as much as large crowds spending lots of paper currency, travelling vast distances, waiting in long lines, and cramming together like sardines just to witness a sporting event.
We live in a strange world where it’s perfectly acceptable to go bonkers about things of no practical significance and totally normal to waste wealth on frivolous and meaningless experiences, but where expressing concern about things that actually matter will get you ostracized, fired, labelled a “conspiracy theorist”, or worse.
The notion of supporting independent media outlets committed to sharing the actual truth about actual issues that actually matter is so foreign to most modern Americans that they’ll actually discredit an independent author based on the slightest evidence of any commercial interests. Nevermind that corporate TV is 30% advertisements, corporate newspapers are 70% advertisements, and corporate websites average 50% advertisements. Thus ends digression #2 of this short article.
The prevalence of dialogue about powder days, pro sports, and American Idol(s) when compared to the paucity of conversations about politics, war, energy, environmentalism, and other important topics proves the existence of this unfortunate cultural meme.
Every time it snows a foot here in Jackson Hole, hundreds of people will go to great lengths and stand in longs lines for the joy of a few powder turns, but few people ponder the possibility of increasing the frequency of powder days. Everyone wants more snow but few are willing to study modern weather modification technologies or to get proactive about snow in general.

Geoengineering technologies are currently being used to steal our snow. With public oversight, geoengineering could be used to make it snow more. How much more? A lot more.
If you could make it snow a foot every night and go blue every day would you do it? What if your local ski resort would go out of business due to lack of snow unless you intervened? What if you knew you were stealing precipitation from elsewhere to improve your own ski conditions?
Imagine that you could manipulate the Jet Stream so every storm hit your home mountain. Imagine that you could tap into atmospheric moisture and make it dump on command. Imagine that you could induce cloud layers to shade your slopes during the day and vaporize those clouds in the evening to achieve colder overnight lows. Would you do so?
What if you could control the weather on such a massive scale but your methods involved cloud seeding at various altitudes with assorted toxic chemicals and blasting the atmosphere with high-powered electromagnetic frequencies? Would you still do it?
What if I told you that advanced (and dangerous) technologies to manipulate the global weather — technologies far beyond silver iodide cloud seeding — already exist and have been in use for decades? I am telling you that and I am not alone: millions of people around the world have studied the sky, done their own research, and woken up to the modern reality of geoengineering.
“Geoengineering” literally means “engineering the planet”. Ongoing climate manipulation programs utilizing advanced weather monitoring and modification technologies have been going on for decades, largely unknown about by the masses despite now being visible in the skies on an almost daily basis.
A simple Google News Search for “geoengineering” currently returns thousands of recent results on the topic. Most mainstream articles claim these technologies are only in development stages, but the skies overhead tell a different story.
The US military has used the weather as a weapon as far back as Operation Popeye during the Vietnam War, and has openly admitted to developing weather weapons systems in the years but the mainstream media expects us to believe that geoengineering technologies will not be weaponized or abused.
Geoengineers at academic institutions stated intent is to manipulate the planet’s weather in hopes of “counteracting climate change”. At first glance, manipulating the global weather to save us from climate change sounds like a pretty noble and admirable thing to do, but what if these programs are actually being used by governments, corporations, and the global financial racket in their neverending quests for profit and power?
There is an ungodly amount of money to be made through controlling the weather, and weather can also be used as a political tool or weapon, so less admirable motivations for manipulating the weather than “saving the planet” obviously exist.
Also — when you really think about it — a plan to intentionally change the climate to prevent climate change makes about as much sense as bombing for peace or fucking for virginity. What if these climate changing programs are actually making climate change worse? What if the methods being used are actually making us sick and harming the environment?
If you are not very familiar with this topic, it probably sounds like science fiction or (gasp!) conspiracy theory to you, but weather modification, geoengineering, and weather warfare are all too real. Humans have been intentionally modifying the weather for over a century, and weather modification has been used as a weapon many times in the past. This is not a conspiracy theory but rather a well-documented historical fact. You just won’t hear about it in the mainstream media.
The map below, produced by etcgroup.org, provides a good historical perspective on dozens of Geo-Engineering projects conducted over the last half century. This map does not cover all Geo-Engineering projects because many of them have been and are being conducted in secret. Though incomplete, this map gives a good glimpse of what has been done in the past and the scale at which weather and climate modification has been employed.Right click the map and open it in a new window for a jumbo size image:
A simple Google News search for “geoengineering” currently brings up thousands of recent mainstream media stories on the topic. These stories claim that Geoengineers are conducting small-scale experiments, but we all know that the mainstream media does not typically tell us the whole truth in a timely manner. Also, there is an impeccably researched paper trail confirming that these programs were dreamed up over a century ago, were developed in the 1950s, were weaponized during the 1960s, and have been conducted over North America since at least the late-1990s.
If you find that claim hard to believe, here is a quote stated in 1958 by Chief White House Adviser on Weather Modification, Captain Howard T. Orville, saying the Department of Defense was studying “ways to manipulate the charges of the Earth and sky and so affect the weather by using an electronic beam to ionise or de-ionise the atmosphere over a given area.” So military scientists were already experimenting with changing the weather by zapping the atmosphere with an electronic beam in 1958!
Check out this US Military PDF from 1990 to see how far the technology had progressed in the 32 years since 1958. Imagine how far it has progressed in the 24 years from 1990 to the present.
One of the mainstream spokesmen for the Geo-Engineers is a Harvard Professor named David Keith. On November 22th, 2012 he did an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and his statements about Geoengineering are quite revealing:
|Harvard Geo-Engineer David Keith interviewed by Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC.au) 11.22.2012|
Every time David Keith gets interviewed he says that Geoengineering is currently being tested on a limited scale and may have to be implemented if climate change gets too bad. In this interview Keith openly admits that Geoengineering technology has existed since the 1960s, but expects us to believe that these capabilities are only in small-scale preliminary development. If this were the case it would be an extreme exception to the historical record of technological development. For example, the first atomic bomb tests took place in 1945, and just a few months later the US bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. All kids like to play with their new toys, especially well-funded military scientists.
The absurd notion that scientists have been sitting on this technology for 50 years contradicts the fact that millions of people all over the world are documenting planes spraying crap into the atmosphere, unnatural repeating wave cloud formations, and other visual evidence of widespread funny business in the sky.
Meanwhile, independent rain/snow/air testing is documenting unprecedented levels of toxic Aluminium, Barium, Strontium and other unusual compounds falling out of the sky. Aluminium, Barium, and Strontium are all documented in stratospheric aerosol Geoengineering Patents issued decades ago.
Geoengineering refers to large scale weather modification projects. Meanwhile there are dozens of openly-admitted small scale weather mod. programs currently taking place in North America. Every icon on the map below represents an ongoing or recent small-scale weather modification program:
For example, silver iodide cloud seeding proved its success almost 70 years ago, and dozens of expensive projects are currently underway in North America, but many people have a hard time believing that it actually works. Most people don’t know this bit of history, but rather definitive proof of cloud seeding’s success — and the reality of weather warfare — came during the Vietnam War when the US Military used cloud seeding against the Viet Cong through a covert program called Operation Popeye.
During the Vietnam War the US Military also sprayed ~20,000,000 gallons of toxic Agent Orange out of airplanes and helicopters with the stated intent of “defoliating the forest” to make it easier to spot enemies from the air. In reality, 400 thousand Vietnamese died from exposure to these toxins, at least one million Vietnamese suffered birth defects and other serious health problems because of these toxins, and over five million Vietnamese were forced off of their ancestral lands and into overcrowded cities because of these toxins. Thousands of American soldiers also suffered from exposure to these toxins which were intentionally released as part of Operation Ranch Hand between 1961 and 1971. Again, this is not conspiracy theory but well-documented historical fact.
The US is not the only country with a history of doing these sorts of things, but exposing the skeletons in our own closet is the easiest way of proving the historical existence of militarized weather modification and aerial spraying programs for other devious purposes. Many nations have resorted to horrific chemical warfare and covert weather warfare. Russia, China, Australia, and several European nations are currently undertaking their own large scale weather modification programs, and there is a historical precedent of rival nations conducting massive climate modification programs cooperatively when their political agendas overlap. Geo-Engineering is a global phenomenon conducted by many nations cooperatively.
If technologies to manipulate the weather have existed since the 1940s, have advanced in mind-boggling ways in the decades since, and have been used in the past for weather warfare, do you think governments, militaries, and powerful corporations would make use of that technology today? Do governments, militaries, and powerful corporations seek power and profit above all else? Would they sit on a technology that would give them incredible power and guaranteed profits?
Do you think the US Military — currently using remote controlled drone aircraft to fire computer guided missiles at “suspected militants” in their covert “war on terror” throughout Africa and the Middle East — would make use of advanced weather modification capabilities?
Of course they would — and they do — because the technology has existed for decades, and Operation Popeye is just one of many historical instances proving that weather warfare is a reality. Operation Ranch Hand provides a clear historical precedent of toxic chemicals being released over an unsuspecting populace. There is even documentation of the US Government spraying poisons on US citizens as part of numerous experiments dating to the 1950’s…
