Reports of Fake 'Plastic' Snow Falling in the USA

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

B4INREMOTE-aHR0cDovLzQuYnAuYmxvZ3Nwb3QuY29tLy1NZG1OYUR0aFRJay9VdW5HeW5CaFJDSS9BQUFBQUFBQUFuYy9xbzVGSFJwZFZucy9zMTYwMC9zbm93K2Zha2UuanBlZw==NEW: 10 Signs You Are Being Hit with Fake Snow

Author’s Note: It’s being claimed that this story has been “debunked” and that this fake geo-engineered snow is perfectly normal“. It HAS NOT been “debunked”, and it’s far from normal.

Please read the comments on all the fake snow articles before you believe anything, then test some for yourself.

Remember, this is mainly being reported in Southern and Eastern states of the USA, and one report from Iceland. I am simply reporting what is coming into our newsroom, not trying to debunk anything, especially not using Wikipedia. As always, you decide…

UPDATE IV – 2/1/14 [12:30pm] – Videos titled “INSIDER CONFIRMS – ARTIFICIAL SNOW etc” and another concerned citizen video from Facebook has been added.

UPDATE III – 1/31/14 [10:22am] – A major addition has been added with permission to this article, dealing with chemically nucleated snow. Further articles dealing with this fake snow phenomenon will continue to be added as they appear.

UPDATE II: 1/31/14 [9:15am] Another video has been added, sent in by a viewer. We’ve called it “Snow Behaving Badly” and we will continue to add more videos as they come in.

UPDATE I: 1/30/14 [9:00am] New Videos have been added at the end of the story. We will continue to add them to this article as they come in to our news desk. Thank you for all your video and tip submission!


The facts that one should look up is:

- Has this happened before?

- In the case that it has happened before, Why populations didn´t react in this fashion before if it´s a common phenomenon?

- Is there a reason why people are reacting just now?

- There has been reports of the snow being different in other ways, such as how it affects the mobility of cars. Is it true? – From a commentor on this site. Great questions!


“I have had the same experiences with the “snow” as others. But here’s something to add: I filled a large jar with it being sure to scrape off the top layer of snow before I collected it. I let it melt – took a long time in the house at 68 degrees. As is melted, it seemed like the snow was connected . . . today I looked at the water in the jar and it has tiny, white threads in it. I kept a cap on the jar. I have a background in microbiology and this looks very odd. I live in Troutman, NC.”  – Before Its News Commentor

( AA ) People around the globe have taken notice of what appears to be very strange characteristics of the snow falling of late.  The snow does not appear to melt in a usual fashion and many report the snow emits a chemical smell when exposed to an open flame. Is this possible?

 

The short answer is yes. Though I can not speak directly about the flame experiments since there is no rain in most of California let alone snow, and cannot conduct my own test. I and others have long since been sounding the alarm about the artificially/chemically nucleated snow that has been and is a major component of geoengineering.

What are the known elements showing up in the snow during the last decade?

Lab tests of snow have repeatedly shown extremely high levels of aluminum and barium. Of course there are always the “debunkers” that try to tell us its “normal” to have these heavy metals in our rain and snow. The disinformation trolls have tried particularly hard to convince the public that there is nothing wrong with toxic metal laden precipitation. Any that believe such patently false statements are likely not willing to face the truth no matter how compelling the evidence.

Can snow really be artificially nucleated with chemicals and charged metallic particles? Can snow storms be engineered?

The short answer is again yes. Snow storms can and are being engineered from top to bottom.

What is an “Endothermic Reaction” ?

An endothermic reaction is the opposite of an exothermic reaction. With an exothermic reaction, like an explosion, energy and heat are released. With an endothermic reaction energy and heat are absorbed. In the case of the artificial snow storms, this energy and heat is absorbed from the atmosphere and precipitation. Such a reaction can “cool things down”, at least for a while.

So what elements can cause such a reaction?

Barium and ammonium are two. We know barium is in the snow, numerous lab tests prove this.

How much can an endothermic reaction drop temperatures?

The endothermic process can almost instantly drop temperatures from far above freezing to well below freezing and beyond.

Why is there very little water appearing when chemically nucleated snow is melted?

Partial “sublimation” is perhaps a factor in this equation. Sublimation is the process of conversion from a solid directly to a gas, such as what occurs with dry ice. There is a great deal we still do not know and can not know about the composition of this “snow”, but it would stand to reason that certain chemical constituents in artificially nucleated snow could cause the behavior being observed. Some have reported a more usual melting phenomenon from “older” samples of this “snow”. It is also possible that some of the chemical elements in this snow lose their potency over time. Again, there is much we can not know. What is certain from numerous lab tests already taken is that much, if not most, if not all of the snow now falling is toxic. It is also certain that we are now seeing snow fall regularly at temperatures far above freezing. There is also no denying the fact that engineered snow storms are a reality as the links below this article confirm.

There is no doubt in many minds that there is some sort of geo-engineering going on across the Nation, and around the world. What we do not know, is the specifics behind it and what the purpose is.

We do know though, that the strongest military weapon a military could posses is one that can manipulate the weather at will.

 

Snow Across Country Appears to be Burning and Causing Odor

People across the country have recently began posting videos and photo’s all over the internet of “burning” snow, that does not just melt away. Some people are even saying the snow has an odor to it that “smells like chemicals”, according to one man from the Jersey area.

As of right now, it is not known (by me) what is causing this. I live in Hawai’i and I can’t really get access to snow samples unless I feel like climbing Mauna Kea or Mauna Loa, which just had 6inches dumped yesterday. Maybe I will have to make a special trip…what do you think? Is there something to all this, or are we being a bit over paranoid? What are your thoughts?

 

 

The planet is in meltdown and the climate engineers are doing everything they can to hide this fact. This includes the use of toxic chemicals and metals in the creation of engineered snow storms. While main stream media (and unfortunately even many “independent” media sites) are falsely claiming the planet is cooling, the bigger picture is clear for any that choose to look past climate engineering and media hype. While it was snowing in northern Florida recently, Alaska was experiencing its warmest January on record. While the climate engineers and their Weather Channel cheer leaders were doing their best to keep the focus on the parade of theatrically named engineered “winter” storms, Australian had its warmest year on record.

In fact, the bottom line on planet earth is this, it is getting hotter fast. Although the climate engineers and their media friends can fool many with their engineered chemical storms and spun media hype, Earth has just had its 37th consecutive year of above normal temperatures and has had 346 consecutive months of above normal temperatures, period. The geoengineers can create profound short term cooling, but it comes at the cost of a completely contaminated planet and a worsened overall warming. The power structure and main stream media has changed their mission from disclosing the warming to suit their agenda, to one of doing everything they can to hide the warming as they have now invested all on climate engineering. Those that wish to have any chance of a future for themselves and their posterity need to help with the effort to expose and stop climate engineering. This fight will take all of us and the battle must be won or it will soon enough be game over.

 

Update: January 31, 2014 – Snow Behaving Badly

I noticed that many of you are trying this, if others decide to do so, please, takes pictures, make videos or record and send it to me and I will upload it for you if you do not have a YouTube channel. This must be a group effort, and it’s good to actually work together on this. The pictures and videos will be added as updates to this article.

If anyone has pictures or videos that they would like to send me, or if anyone has an explanation they could offer, please send them to our email: info@apparentlyapparel.com

          Seriously seriously weird… :???:

    • vector theta

      The last video in this article is the only one worth watching if at all. Snowflakes are each individual crystalline structures. The heat from the lighter causes the snow to sublime. They are spewing butane all over the snow and then wondering why they get a dirty residue that smells bad. Not one video showed what happened if the snow was on the counter for an hour. Doing these same experiments fifty or a thousand years ago would still have yielded the same results.

      • coffey

        Damn right Vector! These people are idiots. This is how snow melted when I was a kid and it will continue to melt like this till time ends. I just wonder what did they expect to see when the snow melted? Melting down like an icecube?

        • iamamerican

          There’s a fool around every corner and you’re on of them.

      • Dustdevil

        I am not buying into the sublimation theory, my refrigerator ice cubes don’t totally sublimate if I do this to them. On the other hand, there are SEVERAL good YouTube videos out there of people in Atlanta doing this, and getting NOTHING, not one drop of water. I watched one last night, the girl used a bic lighter, held it on a mass of snow she used a cereal bowl to scoop up off her front porch, dumped the snow on her countertop, torched it for close to 30-seconds, NO WATER on the counter, and even after she quit with the lighter, the warm counter didn’t cause a single SNOWFLAKE to melt into water, either! Come on – in Atlanta? It’s not like you were in Fairbanks and the snow was so cold, like -40F, that it would take 2-minutes to warm up to freezing to melt. She was on camera for close to 2-minutes with the snow, and NO WATER melted out. Seriously strange, especially after she hit it with the lighter. And yes, butane can cause blackening on ice when lit, but it doesn’t smell like ‘plastic’ when burned, it smells like burnt lighter fumes, and NOT what she was reporting.

      • amommamust

        Oh, you don’t know how happy I am to see you here… a voice of reason. As if we do not have enough REAL problems to deal with!

      • Freeamerican

        ‘the last video is the only worth watching’, No it’s not, geoengineeringwatch schemers are psy ops like jones. They push jones and disinfo to distract from the jew control of America, all media, government banking, chemtrails, bilderberg all of it. thezog.wordpress.com. At most they jabber ‘rothschild’ distraction. Even if they started talking ‘zionist’ it would only be because people are finding out anyway so they add more half info trying to stay fake leaders after covering up the jew tribe all this time. No going back now to be legit. They used to work for the government including carnicom. Better video is ‘weather wars geo engineering bio engineering’. Many fakes will keep coming acting like truthers to keep people going toward psy ops sites. The big ‘google’ next to it is another giveaway, google also jews same as wikpedia. This site has psy ops (least I warned you) but page is a keeper http://www.fourwinds10.net/siterun_data/media/internet/news.php?q=1262024557 ‘zach’ is doing a polite act same as female psy ops do here to get cred, jews are cunning. psy ops, JWO. Obviously everything is contaminated by chemtrails. The burning snow jabber is just distraction junk. View geo-bio video, search holohoax and thezog.wordpress give those to people. No more leaders. Quit buying things, quit voting.

          Oh dear. We have really forgotton to take our SSRI’s this morning now haven’t we Mr Freeamerican? :mrgreen:

      • Brew

        If you hold ice (snow) over a fire it melts..You cant deny that. So why didn’t the snow melt like the ice from the freezer melted when the guy in the first video held it over the hot metal of his fireplace? No butane involved. You obviously didn’t watch much of these videos.
        It is weird.

      • resonator

        Just more brainless gooberment sympathizers here starting with vector theta. I did this same thing 5 years ago with snow at 8000 feet in Idaho. Mainly out of boredom. But I think that must have been real snow because I did not get the results these guys did in the videos. The Idaho snow melted away as I created weird little snow sculptures with my bic lighter – and guess what – no black burn marks in the snow. Any one believing vector theta or any body with else vector’s direction of thought is equally insane.
        Ice is suppose to make water if heated. Snow Flakes are made of ice, last I checked.
        Don’t let these pond scum suckers tell you otherwise.

    • Theodorizer

      About a month ago I saw a dream where I was wading on a long road that was covered with plastic snow one foot deep as far as eye can see. I thought it was one of my fakest dreams and thought it couldn’t really be any sign, other than the product of my own wild imagination. If such thing were to happen it would really feel terrible I can assure you because “I was there”. I don’t expect it to explainable as a natural phenomenon, but simply keep it as an act of God, a modern day plague that has its roots in the way the Egyptians were cordially treated in their stubborness.

    • back_up_for_the_boys

      I don’t smoke or use a lighter but when I have seen a lighter working, I always see “smoke” rising from the flame. The best visual so far is the guy showing the lighter and the torch on the snow and then the ice cube. I would like to see this fake snow put in a pot on the stove as a control for the black thing and to see the ice cube leave a puddle and the snow not. As a scientist, I want to eliminate the soot question and the evaporating water from the heat question (which the ice cube control kind of accomplished for the “wet” part). we do not have this phenomenon with our snow here in colorado. Please someone do the snow in the pot on the stove experiment and let us see no puddle. This is an intriguing subject.

      • back_up_for_the_boys

        This experiment needs more controls and alternate heat tests obtaining the same results to convince me. To many questions in the loosely and narrowly conducted demos above

        I did it for ya, I live in Statesville NC, kinda between Charlotte and Greensboro. You can see the video on my facebook at https://www.facebook.com/JessicaLThurlow. The video is my current status update. I dont know WHAT is going on anywhere else, but where I am, everything is normal.

      • Jessica

        I did it for ya, I live in Statesville NC, kinda between Charlotte and Greensboro. You can see the video on my facebook. Tried to post my link but i guess the mods wouldn’t let me. SO do a fb search for jthurlow at live dot com. I wish there were an easier way to get you to my video… It is my current status update. I dont know WHAT is going on anywhere else, but where I am, everything is normal. Sorry, I didnt have ice for the control…. just my stove, a pot, and a bbq lighter. What REALLY irks me is there isnt even a full inch of snow left and tomorrow will be my kids’ 3rd day of no school. THIRD! It’s not heavy snow, and there ain’t even any ice! And there’s NOTHING left in the roads!! SMH…. Figures…. they plow roads here with skidders….

    • mumma

      In Illinois……snow does melt in the oven or on your hand…..but sitting in a warm kitchen. 45 minutes it does not melt….using a lighter there is no water …it looks like melted styrofoam…..didn’t notice any smell or turning black…??

    • Rick Carufel

      I got good news and bad news. The snow in Minnesota still melts but it’s 225% the normal background radiation.

      • Apparently Apparel

        Thank you Rick. Missouri is also reporting radioactive snow…the reports of this fake snow keep coming in. NY snow appears to be ‘normal’, and I was just telling someone that I saw a show on NHK World News about Japanese scientists injecting aerosols into a cloud and producing snow within 30 minutes. The worst thing to do with Nature is to start manipulating it, and we’re well past that point. We’re suffering the consequences now.

    • peinarsson

      In Iceland as well, it started snowing here in around noon today. There is a lot of PED smell of rhe burn but maybe thats just the butain gas from the lighter? But it smells to strong in my opinion but I’m no chemist but in the past when determing PED from silicone we burned it with lighter and its prettu much the same smell.
      http://youtu.be/_iNEVEAOZ_I

      • Apparently Apparel

        Very interesting! Thanks for the comment and the video. I watched it and it looks like soot from the flame being deposited on the snow, but then it does look unusual after you stop lighting it. Either way, I wonder why so many people are noticing this just now, and never really before?

    • peinarsson

      It’s the plastic burn smell that I’m wondering about, does anyone have a microscope to check this?

      • Apparently Apparel

        I do, but no snow to look at with the scope at the moment..just blindingly hot sunshine. Also, using a water test kit for a pool or AP system might show something unusual, even a Geiger counter from what reports in Missouri and Minnesota are saying… :shock:

    • taptap

      i recieved a few inches of snow from leon on tuesday as well here in virginia, i just checked mine, it is 100% snow, no smell, melts almost instantly in my hand. and i am sure i had the same moisture feed from the gulf, though i am sure a little bit of atlantic moisture was thrown into it. let me point out that the heat of a lighter comes from the tip of the flame, never from the side, actually if you use the side of a flame you will get soot, this is a long known trick, try it out run your finger through a flame from its side, it wont burn you, if you run it directly above the flame, you will get burnt, sorry folks but this is just a property of a flame from butane

      • tamrancloe

        sorry to say but i just tried your “you wont get burnt from the side theory” but unfortunately i did get burnt whereas you said you wouldnt get burnt.

      vector theta

      Exactly,these were my first thoughts however you beat me on commentingon the suject,because I simply dismissed it as stupidity.
      Look under a Magnifier or microscope and see if the crystals are normal even though they do come in different shapes.Then melt it normally at room temperatures now analyze the water,if you have a Microscope(like I have a 1200 x) give us a report.
      Everything else is humbug.
      I live in Canada and it is snowing I will get some and maybe report back.
      Meanwhile I hope someone that has some Brains will beat me to it.
      No doubt that it contains all the usual and unusual contaminants as you find in Rainwater as well.
      Stick it also in a Microwave and watch what happens,and then smell it bet you smell nothing .

      • Anonymous

        well I went outside got some snow in a glas dish and first looked at it with my 40x magnifying glasses.Its around zero therefore there were no typical crystals but more like ice modules,due to the melting during the day.I did notice some minute black particles likely pollution.
        I exposed it to my Geiger counter there was no noticeable increase in the Counts.
        I then stuck it in the Microwave for a few seconds and it turned into Water with no smell.
        I poured it over some white paper and let it dry ,being unable to see the minute particles,again I held the Paper against the Geiger tube,with no results.
        That’s it Folks, at least these are the results from here in the Western Part of Canada
        And I agree fully with Chris Thomas

    • Chris Thomas

      I wanted to comment on the recent viral rage about so-called Fake snow falling in the southern U.S. States. This is natural dry snow. Dry snow seems to jump from snow crystals to evaporation, it’s called: “sublimation”. There have been lots of youtube videos of people exposing the snow to a flame, usually butane, saying that a “plastic” smell is also emanating from the experiment… In my opinion, the black deposit on the snow is most certainly soot and the smell is part of the break down of butane into water, heat and a release of a chemical called “mercoptin” (which smells a bit like gasoline). Also, exposing a butane flame to very cold water crystals results in a water vapour that transports the chemical-reaction-odor. In addition, when you consider that almost %100 of the time people start a butane flame to light a candle or a cigarette, etc, they are not used to applying it to snow and therefore only experience the mercoptin sans the smoke of a burning candle, etc. In other words, the average person has no science discipline.
      Now, besides the impossibility of combining a fake snow event with a natural snow storm covering many hundreds(maybe a few thousands) of square miles, one has to ask why? The How is even beyond a logical mind, but why? We understand that chemtrails are real, and have a nefarious reason: The Zetas say that the chemtrails are to hide a potential viewing of a second Sun. Never-the-less the why remains. In my opinion, this is a black ops driven viral rage that caught on because of the gullibility of the public. Why would black ops start this? Snow in Georgia? Florida? opps, a public awareness of EARTH WOBBLE is far, far worse than the public believing that we’ve been up to our HAARP experiments again.

      Its basic science.

      • Apparently Apparel

        Thanks for the heads up. It’s going to take more than some article by some random person claiming they have “Debunked” it to satisfy the hundreds of independent reports coming in. Reports are coming in from other countries too. Why has nobody noticed this before, if it is such a common occurrence?

        Your comments and clicks are still highly appreciated, fake snow or not. :lol:

        • bigbaddabooma

          Basic science you add heat to water it evaporates.
          You add carbon to something it will stick.
          The smell is burnt carbon and junk in the air itself trapped…
          All these vid started from the south were people dont see snow everyday.
          I have 8 feet in my yard,in the same area a lot of these vids come from.
          People dont know because they are not in it 5 months of the year around fires and snow,ice,water,under extreme heat.
          Ice 99.6% water
          Snow 5%water 95% air and a natural insulator.Melting snow with a butane lighter will melt it slow at 450f and leave a carbon black footprint,any water that dont evaporate instantly will be drawn into the snow.
          explain how you can sit in a igloo for days with a fire and it dont melt,because snow is a insulator.Put snow in he hand,it melts,leave it on the counter,it melts,,,,one of these vid posters did this and removed his old “fake snow vid”,cause he debunked it himself.

    • IdiotsEverywhere

      If I see one more video about the “Fake snow”, I am going to kick someone! The soot and the smell is from the burning lighter fluid. The smell especially is from the rapid cooling of the gasses once in contact with the snow. The reason you see no water drops when lighting the snow is because there are air pockets in the snow. When you light it, the water naturally migrates away from the flame and into these air pockets where it is almost instantly re-frozen by the surrounding ice crystals (condensing the snow to solid ice). Eventually, you will get water. That is why when you perform the same test on an ice cube, you get melted ice. There are relatively, very few air pockets in the ice cube.

        Isn’t this the most retarded thing on BIN? I can’t believe people actually think it is fake….apparently most these people are new to snow LOL.
        I wish they would throw the snow in their shoes before work and see how DRY it is, or heck shovel some on their bed before they sleep!!

      I’m in NC. My neighbor told me about this. Of course I thought she was crazy. So to prove her wrong, I gather some snow. Wait – it’s not even really snow! It’s ice, not fluffy snow. And it seems to be made of round crystals sort of. So I get a lighter and burn the ice and darned if it doesn’t start to turn black. I stop burning it and smell the lighter then the ice. The ice smelled like burning plastic. WTH? So I go get MORE ice, and a match instead of a lighter. The match doesn’t last as long so snow didn’t discolor as much, but it did leave white residue on the match head – like melted plastic. And the smell was the same – not butane, not sulfa or whatever is on a match head, but burning plastic. Okay I get one more batch and try it one more time. Same results. So I guess I’m crazy too… :shock:

      • bigbaddabooma

        Yea dont use fossil fuel fires.
        they make carbon.that u smell.
        And its a dry snow,so its now ice like.

    • Anonymous

      LOL….Totally normal people! Being from WI I am very familiar with snow….it is the same as it always has been, the debunked video is seriously truth.
      Snow actually acts like a sponge, I use it to soak up water in the garage, its only wet when it melts to nothing.
      A lighter will cause black on anything if you hold it to something long enough.
      Don’t believe me, then throw it in your shoe and walk around with it for a while, then we will see how DRY it is :lol: :lol:

      take an ice cube put a bic to it and you will get the same results black smoke on the ice….
      the smell my guess is the butane burning off….. until a scientist confirms these claims it’s just more misdirected information ………the south has gotten hit with snow in my lifetime before i’m 58 ….

      • Merkin

        I can confirm firsthand that if you put a BIC® lighter to anything for more a moment it will soot the object. ~ a smoke, kindling wood, a snowball, an ingrown nail, etc ~

        As well I remember clearly melting snow with a lighter as a child and always wondered why it behaved more like “lightered” Styrofoam® than anything else.

      wait, unless fox news, which mainstream media claims the planet is cooling?
      if this was some sort of geoengineering conspiracy to convince people everything is fine, why would they dump snow in southern states where it doesnt normally snow around this time? wouldnt it make sense to dump more snow where it normally snows a lot like northern regions? i’ve seen reports of “black rain” in south korea and it was dark in color because it contained lot of pollutants. nobody claimed it was geoengineers fooling people lol. plus those videos could easily have lighter fluid or something combustible soaked in the snow (why would anybody do that? not sure but some people do a lot for attention). im sorry, but government conspiracy aside, i wish humans were technologically advanced enough to engineer the weather lol. if that was possible i can see a lot of effort to prevent tsunamis, droughts, etc., not dump fake snow in georgia lol

        “i wish humans were technologically advanced enough to engineer the weather”

        Humans have been “seeding the clouds” to create precipitation for a hundred years.
        Almost as long as we’ve been flying.

        “To prevent rain over the roofless 91,000-seat Olympic stadium that Beijing natives have nicknamed the Bird’s Nest, the city’s branch of the national Weather Modification Office–itself a department of the larger China Meteorological Administration–has prepared a three-stage program for the 2008 Olympics this August.”

        There is also more than enough conventional firepower around to easily “Create” a concussion based tsunami or local quake. Many countries “could” do this awful thing with the weapons we know about.

        Humans are already advanced enough for basic, local weather engineering.

      Wyoming here, we did this tests on our snow. It looked as if it was trying to catch fire… no water from heat of flame. Anyone else wonder what is in our drinking water if this is in our snow?

      I live in Atlanta and when I first started seeing these videos I thought it was a bunch of garbage. But after reports started coming in from all over the world, I decided to test things for myself. The snow is mostly gone here since it is now day 4 and snow rarely lasts this long. But I manage to find 4 chunks in the neighborhood of 4 to 5 inches by 3 to 4 inches in various sections of my yard.

      All 3 behaved differently. That by itself does not make sense. One piece melted over half way, before a single drop of liquid fell. It did not become scorched.

      Another piece melt about half way, but it scorched quiet a bit and zero liquid fell.

      The last piece was the closest to the way snow normally acts. Several drops of liquid fell onto the 2nd piece of snow and left black marks where it dripped. But there was very little blackening on the actual piece.

      All together, there was well over 1 full cup, compacted hard into a cup before I started. Over half of it was melted and yet there was only 11 drops of liquid that came out of it. That is not right, plain and simple.

      It is also interesting to note that my yard gets extremely slick after a small amount of rainfall. We had approximately 3 inches of snow which is now “melted/evaporated”, yet my yard is bone dry. Even the leaves that haven’t been dealt with yet are completely dry and that normally takes days after the snow is gone.

      There was almost no runoff either. This was the biggest snowfall we have had since we bought this house and normally just a light dusting of snow will cause runoff to flow down the street. With 3 inches the street stayed damp, but there was nothing running down the hill.

      I don’t pretend to be a scientist or doctor and I’m a fence sitter on the conspiracy stuff. You will not convince me this is normal. I am too danged old to buy into that foolishness. Something is not right about this.

      Snow is frozen water. Water does not turn black when a flame is applied to it. I tried it my snow melted normal like it should. That stuff turning black is not natural. I don’t really find it surprising personally.

      • Merkin

        You are 100% incorrect conspirator.

        Propellant from a lighter WILL turn snow black quickly if you hold the lighter sideways and leave the flame on for a bit.

        ^ it would soot a bowl of water too ( IT’s the PROPELLANT ) but it’s just not as easy or obvious

      HERE IS WHAT IT IS …

      One of the main ingredients in CoreExit was 2-Butoxyethanol which can be used to make FIREFIGHTING FOAM!

      Its amazing the things you learn so quickly with the help of the web and WIkiPedia.

      2-Butoxyethanol <– FIREFIGHTING FOAM
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2-Butoxyethanol

      "2-Butoxyethanol is a solvent in paints and surface coatings, as well as cleaning products and inks. Other products that contain 2-butoxyethanol include acrylic resin formulations, asphalt release agents, FIREFIGHTING FOAM, leather protectors, oil spill dispersants, degreaser applications, and photographic strip solutions. Other products containing 2-butoxyethanol as a primary ingredient include some whiteboard cleaners, liquid soaps, cosmetics, dry cleaning solutions, lacquers, varnishes, herbicides, and latex paints."

      well…. I figured out the soot part, then thought maybe it was chemicals from my lighter. So I got plain piece of drawing paper, lit it and then lit the snow with that. Walked into another room, smelled the snow. It smelled like burning oil and melted plastic again. So its not from the lighter since this is a different source. I did let the paper burn for a bit before lighting the snow….
      So then I thought it was runoff from my new roof shingles. So we grabbed snow up on a small hill across from my yard where runoff could not go uphill. Lit it with a piece of paper…. smelled the same exact way. Something is wrong with it. This is the suburbs of Indianapolis, IN

      these people need to go back to high school and fire their science teachers.

      natural snow is FROZEN WATER VAPOR.

      “snow” from your freezer is FROZEN WATER (which is also called, ICE) formed from condensation, not freezing water vapor.

      frozen water vapor will convert directly back to gaseous water vapor in favorable conditions. (see the water vapor trail around 5:20 on the video).

      frozen water – ICE – will melt back into water.

      a snowball placed on your table will partially melt as some of it will return directly to water vapor and some of it will condense into water, and then leave water on your table.

      She got inf. from a gov. friend….to see this. some is repetitive but listen to her answers.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYqsx2R2dUc

      From Kirkland (suburb of Montreal) Quebec Canada – packed a snowball approx diameter 4 inches and held it over red hot stove element till the tongs got so hot I had to stop, couldn’t get a drop of water to fall (at least two minutes). Then held an ice cube, which is obviously denser than snow, and got a drop in two seconds. Interestingly, a friend in downtown, around 25 km from my location, reports that her snowball melted immediately when subjected to flame from a lighter. So the fake snow has made it’s way here too folks, but not everywhere. This is the type of phenomenon that everyone can try on their own and believe their own eyes, rather than reading or seeing someone else’s experience. And if we can all post our location, our results, then we can possibly get a mapping of where this is happening.

      I wanted to share this with anyone with an open mind because the only thing Illuminati fear is people power.

      a few weeks ago January 2014 I noticed the snow was unusual. I mentioned it to my wife and did a search to see if anyone else noticed it was an odd consistency. That’s when It was brought to my attention I was not alone. I was raised on a farm and have been a logger and carpenter for many years, I’m from Rural Ontario Canada and live in the bush in log home. I’m in tune with the nature around me and when something isn’t right in my environment, I pick-up on it as do my dogs which up until this winter were outside, but this year they wanted cover, deep cover and had burrowed a hole under one of my shops to go to and are not using there dog houses. Now I’m giving this behavior some thought. Not everyone is going to agree on any topic, but I am keeping an open mind as to why this is, if it is, and why perhaps it maybe something other than weather manipulation. Something of this magnitude can be done by select few groups: Military, government, Fossil fuel industry, all who have the scientific means to play with mother nature. There are huge fossil fuel deposits under areas in the Artic and Antarctic regions. This is the noticeable areas where global warming is obvious to everyone. What if they could alter the weather to increase the warming affect in certain areas without warming the planet as a whole. My theory is: Create snow to fall in typical snow fall regions and add to the geometric size to some degree in order to reflect sunlight while the dark areas that are getting increasingly larger are absorbing the suns warmth in artic regions in order to soften, reduce or completely diminish the permafrost in areas where there are large fuel resource’s. The Fuel in industry is multiple trillion dollars globally each year, If they can get to it they will regardless the consequences. Just take a look at the damage fracking has cost innocent people, the cost is there lives, so lets not pretend there is a conscience within the groups with the money, hence power. This year there was a large convention in China on permafrost and fossil fuels. I was hoping that China would not get involved with the cartels but believe me if you want to accomplish something like this China is the one you want onboard. Look what they accomplished in a decade when the war games were being played and plotted. Brilliant maneuver’s in record time. All I am suggesting is looking at motive if indeed this is happening, and above is but one motive. If there are other groups that have a motive and could capitalise on this maneuver they will be on board. It’s not hard to find out who may be-able to use this as a means to an agenda in play, perhaps population control, I don’t know, “perhaps. Weather manipulation has been used and still is as far as I know as a military weapon. If you have the three groups that can utilize this technology for there own purpose then the rest of us are SOL. Or are we. That’s what these discussion’s if what is purposed is true needs some careful thought put forth. Groups hide for few reasons: they are afraid, embarrassed, dishonest and underhanded as a way to get what they want. They go to great lengths to use there weaknesses as strengths. For Total Manipulation. How do they keep that up. It is transformed into arrogance, ego and foolish pride to help them live each day without conscience. I doubt I’m alone in my theory, but it may disturb many and I don’t blame you. It would be a horrible truth. :idea:

      This was explained if I recall correctly. It isn’t plastic, but it is likely to have been contaminated by chemical trails.

      This is a year old lie that was already shown to be nonsense so this AA newsroom really should be tar and feathered.
