Letter: Hahn, What is happening to our sky?

What is happening to our sky?

This letter is written to all who care about our environment. I am very concerned over what I have been seeing, hearing and experiencing over the past five years. I am sure it has been going on longer, but I just didn’t notice it. Think about our sky. When was the last time you remember seeing a clear blue sky for a full day? If you observe our sky on a daily basis it appears our claim to fresh air and blue skies is no longer valid. I have been reading articles in our paper about cloud seeding to enhance the snow pack for ski areas and insure adequate water for our state. If this is true, then why would they be seeding over eastern Jackson County and Rocky Mountain National Park in late spring as the Poudre, Thompson and other watersheds were flooding? Why are people having respiratory and allergy attacks in the middle of winter? Why is it raining when it is only 17 degrees out and then not freezing? Do you have solar panels? If so are they producing as they should? Has there been any testing done to see what the environmental impact is from all the cloud seeding using chemical aerosols? For many years we have been told not to use aerosol spray cans because they damage the ozone. So my question is why are we doing this on such an enormous scale and who is the “we” that is doing this and who is paying for it? I realize that I have asked a lot of questions so please if you have any answers or questions of your own, contact me @ wwjs2me@gmail.com. Maybe together we can figure out what is happening to our air and skies. In the meantime, please take time to look up and see for yourself.
