I am 55-years old now and did not see evidence of these forms of cloud shown in the weather report – straight lines, nor the rainbows occurring where there was no rain, and “hole punch clouds,” until atmospheric aerosol trails and other evidence of weather modification technology became blatantly apparent during the severe drought in Northland in 2010.
Award-winning weatherman, Scott Stevens, spent many hours studying how the ‘powers-that-be’ were manipulating the weather and writes on his website, which is at Weatherwars.info at the Waybackmachine, that it is known that ionization technology can be used to increase rainfall, so the opposite must also be true.
Wrote Scott: “Holes in the clouds, where holes would not otherwise be, are direct evidence that scalar technology can deliver these negative ionic bursts into storms reducing their ability to make rain or even the ability of a cloud to provide shade on a hot summer afternoon. These effects can lead to the decrease of severe storm intensity, changes of a hurricanes strength through wind field intensity disruption, and suppression of snow and rain formation in an extratropical storm….”
Furthermore, he wrote adjacent a photo of a hole punch cloud taken in 2004: “A flood of negative ions deposited into this hole acts on the clouds by releasing static bonds that are holding the clouds together. The hydrogen and oxygen bonds holding the the water molecules together are broken and with the resulting release moisture falls/crystallizes/sublimates out of the cloud above.” More information of the chemistry of water and why this hole punch cloud may occur: https://web.archive.org/web/20080906222620/http://weatherwars.info:80/?page_id=10
