Pollen and clouds: April flowers bring May showers?

The main job of pollen is to help seed the next generation of trees and plants, but a new study from the University of Michigan and Texas A&M shows that the grains might also seed clouds.The unexpected findings demonstrate that these wind-carried capsules of genetic material might have an effect on the planet’s climate. And they highlight a new link between plants and the atmosphere.

When the pollen gets wet from these trees, it breaks down into smaller particles that can hold condensation for cloud formation.

What if I told you that it’s possible to take clouds and force them to rain? Cloud seeding’s been around for a while. The Chinese government used it extensively before the Beijing Olympics to reduce air pollution. Cloudcraft is a massive conceptual skyscraper conceived for California, which has been facing droughts for a while now. Aimed at combating primarily drought and famine, the Cloudcraft can also reduce pollution, and temperature. Designed to look like trees with branches facing upwards, these massive cloudscrapers are built on the coastline, targeting clouds carrying large amounts of atmospheric moisture. As the cloud hovers over the large structure, silver iodide (sometimes even salt) particles are shot into it. These crystalline particles cause the super-cooled water vapor to condense around it, making rainfall inevitable.


Cirrus clouds are the thin wispy clouds that appear to trail across the sky. Their name comes from the Latin word cirrus, which means a ringlet or curl of hair. These clouds cover nearly one-third of the Earth and form in the upper layers of the troposphere. Cirrus clouds have also been observed on Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Titan, one of Saturn’s moons.

Wait! I thought weather modification was a conspiracy theory?

Video above.

Here is the 333 page Los Angeles

This is needed for Los Angeles, at the price of $550,000 a year for the next four years as of May 19, 2015 (date of document). Weather modification, in this case cloud seeding, is needed in California, specifically L.A., to combat the geoengineered 4+ year drought they have been going through.

Who’s supplying Los Angeles County with weather modification?
This company:

The name of the company is North American Weather Consultants, Inc. Their main page says it all!

Geoengineering definition:

Now honestly tell me that geoengineering/weather modification does not exist.


No, this post is not about ‘chemtrails’. Cloudseeding is a real technique, and is used to induce rain or snow in clouds. This is usually achieved by dropping particular particles into clouds that contain supercooled water, to try to cause the clouds to dissipate, modify their structure or alter the intensity of phenomena like wind speed or hail. Cloud seeding can be done by ground generators, plane, or rocket.

Kate Bush - Cloudbusting, 1985

A song about Wilhelm Reich told from the point of view of his son, who Kate Bush portrays in this video.  There are chemtrails in this video by the way.  I am learning that geoengineering has been going on for a long time.

Let’s seed some clouds

There is a potentially awesome storm that may be coming through the Sierra Nevadas and lower California elevations in the next 3 days.
I am asking that anyone that practices magic or does energy work or any type of sorcery or directed intent to please send anything and everything you can to boost this storm system. Even minor flooding is acceptable at this point. We are facing serious shit this summer and beyond which will impact more than just California. Obviously I don’t assume this storm is going to magically solve the issue, but any snow pack and rain we can get right now is better than the none we’ve been having. If you are down to help, Please focus your intent to snow in the mountains. Rain in the valley is cool and will come from the rest, but the snow is important as fuck. 
Thank you, and feel free to contact me if you want to help but are not sure how to do so.


Review from May 2016 contiuation June 2016….
Most Parts in Europe are Water down under
Malaysia resorts to cloud-seeding in hope of clearing smoke over region
Annual illegal burning leads to dangerous drop in air quality, with Indonesia declaring state of emergency, Malaysia shutting schools and thousands falling ill. Cloud-seeding aircraft were meanwhile being deployed in the hope of triggering rain to help clear the smoke, Malaysian authorities said.

Geo-Engineering, a former scifi trope, becomes a reality.

tender is a word i hold for you. it is a pebble small enough to have fit between your childhood gap-teeth. a whole riverbed of these. storm clouds heavy with blackberry seed. fog that turns our fluttering eyelids amaranth. i almost-love you. i am falling off the bone. it is such a smooth happening. a stone softened by one hundred high tides like it is the moon’s swelling chest. i cannot stop catching my breath. i have a dream where we plant sugar tree in my tummy and i drink lake water for thirty-seven weeks. you say you are afraid of all the sweet. i say sugar is all i will ever need. for your nape there must only be alabaster, candied, tender, tender, tender things.
