The Weather Liars
By Diane Harvey
It has been an astonishing transformation, of the utmost
significance. But we never, ever, hear or read about it in the news. Over the last few years, the skies over the American
southwest have changed beyond recognition. The famous dazzling blue sky of yesteryear has become, as often as not, sickly
pale ugly sludge. This is as shocking a difference as if the surrounding landscape had slowly turned black, while the human
inhabitants remained bizarrely oblivious.
There are still clear days, but these are numerically
becoming the exception. And this has happened nearly without public comment, in a part of the world where sunny bright blue
skies most of the year have been the rule for centuries. But the slow sure rip in the elemental fabric of our lives has not
gone entirely unsung.
Our so-called weather reports have been carefully rewritten,
as ever more strained variations on the theme of Partly Cloudy. Day after day, we are treated to absurd contortions along
the lines of partly cloudy, mostly cloudy, mostly sunny, partly sunny, and probably-mostly-partly-sort-of-sunny-and-cloudy.
And how is it that the meteorologists can confidently predict this same once highly unlikely forecast for weeks ahead of time?
The answer is obvious: because these particular partly cloudy clouds are not clouds at all.
As I write this, normal air traffic is coming and going
as always, leaving no distinguishing characteristics in its wake, as usual. But in addition, closely laid out bands of fake
contrails are slithering inexorably up from the south. Easily seen with good binoculars, several large unmarked planes methodically
plow back and forth, depositing greasy white streams of toxic chemicals across the face of the morning. Giant Xs appear here and there, oozing fatly outward in slow motion. Before my eyes, each of these trails swells
and expands, until they begin to merge in the sky-wide stew of chem-trail brew. Another fresh beautiful day has been successfully
murdered: suffocated under the clandestine chemical shroud.
The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, but no information
is forthcoming as to the factual nature of the secret swill that makes it nearly always only mostly sunny. And as usual lately,
the weather forecast is already miraculously perfectly predicted for the next couple of weeks. We are forewarned and know
exactly what to expect in the days to come.
Here is the typical grimly ironic twaddle promising extensive
spraying ahead: "mostly sunny, mostly clear, mostly sunny, mostly clear, mostly sunny, mostly clear, mostly sunny, partly
cloudy, partly cloudy, partly cloudy, mostly sunny, partly cloudy and- wait for it- partly cloudy. Such is the ever-repeating
litany of sky-lies masquerading as the local weather report.
Meteorologists and weather forecasters have always enjoyed
the absolute confidence of the public. We would never have imagined that such respected authorities would offer preposterous
fabrications to the public on a daily basis. Who could ever have thought that those we innocently entrust with accurately
reporting our weather would become hardened liars as a matter of routine?
Such a betrayal of our belief was practically inconceivable.
Of course, many people had a hard time believing that a large number of priests were routinely abusing children and lying
about it too. Many people have trouble with imagining all sorts of horrendous activities that turn out to be going on all
around us all the time. Our credulity, intellectual inertia and blind faith in authorities have allowed the rise of a culture
of professionally networked liars on all fronts. The profound failings of an intrinsically unethical civilization have generated
innumerable painful awakenings, and were not done yet.
Meteorologists consider themselves members in good standing
of the secular priesthood of science. Their obedient mouth organs, the medias weather forecasters, also do not seem to lack
self-esteem. Yet none of these self-regarding professionals see any problem in refusing to mention the most visible anomalous
activity in our skies. If the seas turned bright red, we might suppose that oceanographers would notice, and immediately report
the astounding fact to the public. But no professionally trained eye ever mentions the alarming and frequent spectacle of
aerosol operations going on in our atmosphere. Are the so-called priests of science so terrified of truth that they manage
to subconsciously blind themselves to the blatantly obvious?
Such a widespread perceptual failure on the part of the
paid, impossible at it seems, has at least to be briefly considered. Because a fascinating
study some years ago from the University of Southern California
concluded that most individuals would indeed refuse to so much as entertain a fact, no matter how self-evidently true that
fact was, if believing it would directly affect their income.
And from rude experience we may extrapolate to include
among the deniers of reality: all those whose self-image and belief system is fanatically welded to the prevailing social
fabric of cheap tricks, fake standards, and prevailing prevarications.
The only other possibility for the increasing predilection
for fantasy forecasting is that the so-called professionals know perfectly well what is happening in our atmosphere, and are
deliberately peddling stupendous lies.
There are only two equally deplorable possibilities here.
However unlikely it seems, perhaps the paid professionals and amateur weather aficionados are actually a group mysteriously
composed only of those people unaccountably devoid of normal perceptual faculties.
Maybe they really do manage to believe their own blithering
blathercasts, although this seems preposterous on the face of it, even for them. The other, far more rational assumption is
that they all know exactly what they are doing and tell these terrible untruths consciously and by design. Either way, the
ritual abuse of public trust in honest weather reporting is now absolute.
Compulsive weather liars only have a couple of ways to
try to maintain their specious nonsense. The favored ploy is to categorically refuse to address the issue of shockingly obvious
atmospheric operations at all.
The very people who pride themselves on being scientists,
pledged to examine evidence impartially on behalf of the human race- will never, under any circumstances whatsoever, go anywhere
near the tell-tale evidence. Neither will any other of the weather professionals in our society.
This should not surprise us unduly however, since upholding
a lie as big as all outdoors must be quite a draining occupation. Maintaining industrial-strength levels of hypocrisy throughout
the length and breadth of once-respectable professions might very well be causing serious wear and tear. Many of the less
aggressive types would naturally prefer not talk about it at all, under the humiliating circumstances.
Although liars come in many colors, a basic yellow streak
always shows through. The average garden-variety weather reporter or meteorologist uses the affable brick wall technique,
applying a cement-like paste of stultifying faux-scientific stupidity to all rational inquiry.
Many other weather liars avoid dealing with actively concerned
members of the breathing public by sneering automatically and maniacally at any incoming questions. The vicious sort of weather
liar believes that the force of sheer personality ugliness ought to impress concerned citizens in lieu of reasoning. But this
type, given to hysterical and disfiguring antics in order to avoid discussing anything even resembling reality, neednt expect
to generate real confusion.
Informed people simply observe the moral self-mutilation
of weather authorities with pity and amazement. Some of the more determined citizens even wait patiently for the froth of
sputtering spittle to dry, and then once again politely offer to discuss the facts of atmospheric life. But dancing with frightened,
well-schooled and determined liars is a sophisticated sport, not for everyone, and most of us will never wish for practice
to make us perfect.
Those who sweat it out slinging lies for a living know
this about us, and therefore will never stop lying. Lying is by far the easiest way out of dealing with uncomfortable facts
for those whose conscience is as yet but a feeble thing, easily disposed of. The unprincipled therefore readily become practiced
liars, as a substitute for the more arduous path of becoming practicing humans.
We live in a culture where power precariously supports
itself by relying on a tissue of denial and lies, so closely interwoven that the intellectually lazy never even see it. Just
as most people still dont even notice that the sky above has gone from a heavenly blue to a hell of anemic whitish-gray.
One has to wonder what magnitude of extreme alteration
in the natural environment the average consumer will require, in order to perceive any change in the surroundings at all.
And within the network of hypocrisy, those who do honestly admit to themselves what is going on carefully examine on which
side their bread is buttered- before bravely declining all comment. When it comes to so-called authorities, the relationship
between abject cowardice, absence of all ethics, and perpetual lying is a very straight line connecting three shabby dots.
In any healthy and wholesome society, the habitual liar
is rightly looked on as an embarrassment to humanity. While constant lying has never been criminalized per se, since being
pathetic is its own punishment, lies that adversely affect other peoples lives are another story.
History books are replete with gruesome examples of groups
of social liars, their inevitable exposure, and the scathing commentary of subsequent generations. It is true that history
excels in revealing past injustice in great and satisfying detail. Yet eventual unmasking of the forgers of sky lies is cold
comfort for those whose well being is adversely affected in the present. Neither can the appearance of revealing truth at
a later time do any good whatsoever to parents helplessly watching their children suffer in the here and now.
The great glaring fact about the weather is that our atmosphere
is being chemically reconditioned right before our eyes, in broad daylight, and each and every one of our weather forecasters
is resolutely lying about it.
Of course, despite wholesale obfuscation, we are still
perfectly free to look outside and investigate what is going on over our heads for ourselves. So should we really mind then
that weather reports have become purpose-built acts of science fiction? Why should we care that professional weather forecasters
have defaulted on their public duty? We can see the reality for ourselves, in this case as in so many others.
In this business of lying whenever their lips are moving,
the weather mongers have merely caught up to politicians, military spokespersons, major media sewer outlets, and other full-time
enthusiastic cheerleaders for infinite secrecy, world-class lies, and the demise of our Republic.
The truth is that we should all care very much about the
truth. It is a primary responsibility to care about being lied to, by any kind of authority, no matter who is doing it or
why. We should mind a great deal whenever anyone with any degree of responsibility for the welfare of the public, and the
welfare of our Republic, consistently, remorselessly and interminably lies to us.
We should certainly never blandly accept the ongoing dark
comedy act called a weather report these days, as if it is simply another new form of misapplied creativity. It is not. Lying
about what is happening to and in our atmosphere is an unprecedented assault on the entire body politic, and a violent violation
of the public trust that must not go unchallenged.
Throughout human history, calling anyone a liar has always
been a serious indictment. Civilized human beings have never employed this brutal epithet causally. Lying is, and has always
been considered, such a vile act that the average person was careful not to accuse anyone of it without just cause.
Logically, there must be many people in different groups
and professions involved in trying to confuse the populace about what is really happening to our atmosphere. Ongoing propaganda
has been carefully constructed for maximum impact on several fronts. Moreover, disguising the abysmal fact of continuing toxic
aerosol operations in our skies is only one of many grotesque deceptions underway.
But let us never forget the uniquely disgraceful role
meteorologists and weather reporters play in all this, as the middlemen and midwives of deliberate fundamental confusion.
Our ridiculous weather cartoons are delivered to us in cold blood, precisely in order to mislead as many of us as possible.
And lying to the public about something as crucial to our existence as what we are all breathing constitutes a pathological
misuse of power.
These wretched examples of authority have willingly traded
all vestiges of honor for the sake of regular paychecks. They live for now by means of lying through their teeth to the very
people who have trusted them absolutely. But then perhaps they have not yet understood that the sure and certain result of
their betrayal will be their undying shame.
