Colorado’s recent massive flooding, which has left hundreds of people unaccounted for, has been called an anomalous 100- or even 1,000-year event by the scientific community. Such floods have a 1 percent and 0.1 percent chance of occurring, respectively, during any given year. While those odds make them rare events, they are the result of natural larger-scale weather and climate patterns, with perhaps an assist from climate change.
Still, some Internet users have voiced alternative views, suggesting that the destructive rainstorms were more directly human-induced, the result of Colorado’s cloud-seeding program.
Surprisingly, cloud seeding does take place in Colorado in order to increase snowfall by 10-15% over ski resorts. But weather manipulation can’t account for the massive rainfall currently being experienced. People are paranoid, looking for answers, wanting something to blame.
Enjoy this fantasy piece, and a good song too.
