Amazon Alexa Tells Users Secret Government Chemtrails Are Real
In the latest installment of controversial things said by Amazon’s Alexa, users are now reporting their home assistant responding to the question, “Alexa, what are chemtrails?” with a conspiratorial answer.
“Chemtrails: Trails left by aircraft are actually chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed at high altitudes for a purpose undisclosed to the general public in clandestine programs directed by government officials,” Alexa said.
Upon hearing about Alexa’s programmed chemtrail response, Amazon quickly updated the app to change her reply.
But this isn’t the first time Alexa has come under scrutiny from those in the conspiracy realm. One of the first times an Alexa response went viral came when someone posted a video asking her if she was connected to the CIA or sending data to the FBI; her silence left users paranoid.
More recently, one of the smart speaker’s reactions circulated headlines again when users reported hearing creepy laughter, often without being prompted.
Many publications reporting on Alexa’s latest retort were quick to call out the conspiracy, saying chemtrails aren’t real and that they’re simply the contrails left in the wake of a jet from freezing water vapor emitted from its engines.
While the chemtrail conspiracy has been taken to some extremes, the extent of weather modification programs conducted by the government has been well documented. A 1996 Air Force research paper titled, Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025, details a government plan to weaponize weather into the 21st century.
The dossier details its plan to enhance storms and precipitation, as well as fog and cloud generation. It also discusses weather modification through the use of ionospheric manipulation, a science studied at HAARP, the military base in Alaska long presumed to be the epicenter of government weather modification studies.
Maybe it turns out Alexa is less of a spook and more skeptical of clandestine government programs like we are.
Weather Modification Technology -- Decades of Ever-Increasing Tempo
Weather Modification Technology – Good Idea or Bad? The Science of Playing God and an Overview of the Technologies
To what extent people are able to control the weather is a bit of a mystery to most. It has been a goal for ages, and perhaps could even be considered the “final frontier” in dominating and controlling Mother Nature. Despite fairly familiar terms such as “cloud seeding,” most believe that controlling the weather on a large scale cannot be done. Control a hurricane? Nonsense! Besides, the idea of controlling the weather with weather modification technology or weather changing machines is a bit alarming to most people. The sheer arrogance of such a proposal has the flavor of “playing God.”
Indeed, even at our technologically advanced state, the inner and outer workings of our planet still hold many mysteries. Have humans really advanced enough to actively manipulate this balance without harming or disrupting the overall planet? Of course, this harmony has been disrupted by climate change, the causes of which continue to spark heated debate. Regardless, with the growing concern over our changing climate, is it possible that weather modification technology could help?
