The Fake Snow Theory
goes something like this: The government is trying to slow down global warming by spraying chemicals in the sky. It's a massive "geoengineering" project. When you see a "chemtrail" in the sky, that's the government spraying these chemicals. And these chemicals have triggered the recent large snowfalls throughout the United States, including in places that normally don't receive much, if any, snow, such as Georgia. Oh, and HAARP is somehow involved in this.
But all that snow on the ground... it's not really snow. It's a chemically produced "snow-like substance." But it's not snow.
This can be proven by trying to melt the "snow" with a lighter. It doesn't melt. It turns black and produces a smell like burning plastic. OMG! What has the government done!
Amateur researchers are taking to youtube to demonstrate the shocking truth:
Scientific types might try to explain that the snow turns black because carbon from the lighter's flame is being deposited on the surface of the snow. And that the snow is melting, but because snow is mostly air the water drops get wicked into the surrounding snow. That is, the snowball shrinks until it turns entirely to slush. And that you can prove the snow is melting simply by leaving a bunch of it on your carpet and coming back in an hour or two. You'll have a puddle there.
But who are you going to believe? Those scientific types or youtube researchers?
Incidentally, it's not clear how this rumor got started. But it's all over the Internet now!
