They say that a conspiracy theory a day will help keep the bugs away and I’m not sure if that is true, but I’m trying very hard to keep up. As you know I set out on a mission to create out of the clear blue sky at least one conspiratorial nonsensical crazy story each and every day. What I typically do is grab something out of the news and mix it with a few scientific facts, and try to come up with a plausible deniable conspiracy of some type. I call this my creative writing exercise for the day. It’s how I warm up my daily writing routine.
Okay so let’s begin. Today’s conspiracy has to do with weather manipulation, and the ability of the United States Department of Defense to change the weather. As you know there was an Air Force paper put out titled “Owning the Weather by 2025″ which meant that the military would try to control the weather and use it as a force multiplier to help win wars. The Russians have a similar program, so don’t think we are alone.
Before the Beijing Olympic Games China also said not to worry that they would be controlling the weather for a perfect Olympic Games. Although they fell little short, the weather was better than it would have been predicted. After the horrific landslides and floods in Pakistan last year, many people said that either China or the United States had caused those major floods by creating severe rainstorms up in the mountains.
Most any meteorologist who was watching the weather knows that isn’t true, but when folks come from regions where they are not necessarily educated, we can expect to observe conspiracy theories have a way of getting out of control, much like the weather in that case.
There was an interesting article recently in TerraDaily – News About the Planet” Online posted in the Climate Science Category titled “West Causing Drought in Iran: Says Mahmoud Ahmadinejad” by Staff Writers in Tehran on May 19, 2011.
The president of Iran is convinced that the United States is causing economic sabotage to his country, and also causing droughts which are exacerbating the economic challenges of their country. He says the United States is doing that to starve out the Iranian people and prevent Iran from seeking its future of becoming a nuclear power. The article stated;
“Western countries have designed plans to cause drought in certain areas of the world, including Iran,” the official IRNA news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying in the central city of Arak in Markazi province. According to reports on climate, whose accuracy has been verified, European countries are using special equipment to force clouds to dump” their water on their continent, he said.”
Now then, everyone knows that the United States and Iran are at odds over several different issues, including the proliferation of nuclear weapons technology, and sponsoring international terrorist groups. Okay so, Iran’s President may just have something there, but I’m not going to tell you who told me so. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
Oh, and if Iran is listening tonight, they may want to think twice about crossing the United States, as the weather, well that’s the least of their worries, and I’ll leave the Earthquake theory for another article. By the way a little bird told me that earlier today. I hope you have enjoyed today’s conspiracy theory, and I hope you will pass it on and tune in tomorrow for another conspiratorial theory.
