Mountains don’t naturally get haze. Fog, yes – fog is a natural phenomenon caused by the moisture in the snow and rivers, and fog is very low-lying, close to its source. What I keep seeing in the sky, though, sure does not seem natural.
A haze covers the bright blue skies that are characteristic of the Rocky Mountains. Not just once in awhile; many times right before there is a prediction for moisture (so it seems). So, are they seeding the clouds? Snow is important to many industries up here, and seeding clouds is no conspiracy theory – that is real. What is in the dispersant? How could it affect the eco-system? Of all of the progressive places in our country, people should seem to be very concerned here in the Roaring Fork Valley, right? Our water supply is precious – so is the soil and air that we breathe. If anything is being is dispersed into the pristine blue skies around us, shouldn’t we, as a community, have a discussion about the potential side-effects of these dispersants entering our soil, water, and air?by
