The Interstate Stream Commission (ISC), reported ABC 7 Amarillo, gave the green light for southeast portions of New Mexico to be "chemtrailed" through geoengineering, the goal being to create artificial rainclouds to saturate the land.
"We have rivers drying and farmers having to fallow, or give up seasons," said Hannah Riseley-White, Deputy Director of the ISC. "So, there is real concern about what the future holds if this drought persists several years more."
Last month was the second-driest April for New Mexico in the last 128 years. Yearly rain cycles vary, so it is not all that out of the ordinary, per se. Still, the situation is dire for the state's farmers.
"We go through our phases. We get a lot of rainfall in the summer during our monsoon season if we are in the right pattern," said Storm Search 7 Meteorologist Corbin Voges.
"Then there is the opposite end of that where we have our drought conditions, like what we are in right now, where we just do not get those good events with surplus totals in rainfall."
Desperate times call for desperate measures, apparently. And in this case, those desperate measures include pumping the atmosphere with silver iodide, which creates ice crystals that the "experts" hope will produce more rainfall where it is needed.
ABC 7 Amarillo wrote that this "may sound like magic," but that it is actually proven by science.
"So, what this does, is it's basically like a sponge. Maybe that sponge isn't completely soaked, but it does have some water in it," Voges explained.
"That silver iodide kind of acts like you hand squeezing that sponge, and just trying to get as much moisture out of the atmosphere as possible."
A Texas-based company called Seeding Operations and Atmospheric Research (SOAR) will be managing New Mexico's cloud seeding operations, which will affect the counties of Chavez, Curry, De Baca, Lea, Quay and Roosevelt.
"It's pretty dire straits," Riseley-White added.
"Carlsbad irrigation district is still at half of their normal irrigation allotment for this time of year. So, to the extent that this could help them get a little bit closer to a normal allotment would be beneficial."
Because New Mexico continues to face extreme fires and drought conditions, there is a possibility that cloud seeding operations will become a permanent fixture of the state's weather system as opposed to just an emergency measure for the current season.
"I would anticipate we'll get an increasing number of applications for cloud seeding," Riseley-White added.
Many of our readers will recall that even just a few years ago, the idea of cloud seeding was considered to be wild conspiracy nonsense. The official story was that geoengineering does not exist, and that chemtrails are just contrails that persist longer than normal for some apparent reason.
Now it is being openly talked about by the media as a solution to "climate change," which is an interesting and surprising development that has not gone unnoticed by many.
"Here in Las Vegas after summer is done, full of planes with chemtrails, it's really quite upsetting," wrote someone at Natural News about how chemtrails have been sprayed for years in nearby Nevada.
"Usually within a day or two, tornadoes and storms happen throughout the Midwest and eastern U.S. I think it's linked."
