Debunked: Weatherman admits "Meteorological Spraying" [It's Meteorological Spring]

[Admin: The video that this story refers to has since been removed by the maker, George Barnes]

The Weather Channel forecaster seems to say, "it is Saturday March first and of course we are starting meteorological spraying ... ".

Here is the transcript; cleaned up as much as I can.

0:00 [inaudible] Weather Channel forecast and it is Saturday March first and
0:04 of course we are starting
0:05 meteorological spraying with a winter storm that
0:08 will be in tracking into the tri-state area beginning tomorrow afternoon
0:12 continuing right in to Monday...

So, what does this mean? Have George and I heard this wrong? "... meteorological spraying ... "

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE via @solrey: The weatherman is actually saying "we are starting meteorological spring".
Meteorological spring starts on March 1st. In Meteorological terms "Spring" is March, April and May. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spring_(season)#Meteorological_reckoning


The irony of a huge storm arriving at the start of "spring" is a big of a joke for weather forecasters:http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2014/03/01/weather-blog-march-1-and-snow-on-the-way/

He says the station had been repeating it…which seems perfectly likely.

Some People, however, have decided that the "smoking gun" admission they craved is finally here. :confused:

Googling "Weather Channel" + "meteorological spraying" I'm not finding a single result
that predates reaction to this morning's passing comment…
suggesting that it is not terminology in the Weather Channel vernacular…

(nor am I seeing any current news stories about a dramatic Weather Channel "gaffe" or whatnot)

the glossary said there's "blow spray" as a term. so its possible he's referring to that. but this being the tristate and us swimming in snow all winter, sounds more like a joke to me. but I'm just speculating.

The guy is George Barnes, owner of Skyderalert.com.

His relevance to chemtrails/contrails is the mobile app he commissioned for taking photos of persistent contrails, and forwarding these to elected officials with a peition complaing about geoengineering, and calling for a ban.

I have no idea how he came to get this soundbite on video.

Spraying the roads is commonly done before a storm arrives in the Tri-State area (NY/NJ/CT). Since the reporter was talking about a storm arriving tomorrow, maybe he's talking about spraying the roads today.

They are starting spraying because of the storm, not to create it - they can't, it's already on the way.

Winner.

That's the problem with telling people what they will hear before they hear it. The Observer Expectancy Effect.

I'll edit the OP with this info

Yes! I think this is correct.
I have the same interpretation from an independent observer. It's his strong Saratoga accent. Meteorological Spring!

it doesn't help if you've never heard of "meteorological spring" before.

It sounded like SPRING to me the first time I heard it. Even though I read "spraying". I listened twice. Spring. Sheesh.

At the risk of showing my ignorance (and don't get me wrong, I hear the word "spring" instead of spraying too and agree it's most likely what was said) but how does this debunking differ to the assumption we were discussing in the UFO thread, which has been argued and marked as not debunked?

I'm not trying to argue, I want to learn

The Quadcopter UFO thread was not "marked as not debunked", I'd just added and removed the debunked label as the original debunk (police drone) originally seemed correct, but turned out it was flat wrong. And now the the OP needs a little work to clarify everything. The actual drone has not been identified, and the video is very poor, so we can't be 100% sure what it is. It's still essentially debunked though - as there's a very good explanation that fits perfectly.

Compare that with this, it's >99.9999% certain he's saying "spring". It's quite obvious when you listen to it, and there are lots of other examples of the same thing, and the the "spraying" phrase has never been utter by a weatherman ever.

Not a vast difference though.

I get the impression that the arguments for "chemtrails" becomes more and more desperate for every new one that shows up.

George's mistake of "meteorological spraying" has now entered the chemtrails lexicon:

It will be amusing if it catches on.

I don't think it will. Not only did George remove his silly vid in the middle of the night, this guy has changed the title from:

"meteorological spraying over Kings Cross…" to

"Geoengineering over Kings Cross…"

Never heard of spraying salt, is this an Eastern thing or what they say in the south? I have NEVER heard anyone indicate spraying salt, probably because it indicates a liquid and salt is a solid that is dumped. Might be a slang in another part of the nation but they never use this term in the midwest.

Well, you've heard of it now. But that's not what this thread is about, just some speculation about what was said that turned out to be wrong. No need to go off topic.

Slightly related, Harold Saive thinks this weather report is suspicious: "It's a weather front that's got pulses of energy on it and it's been generating these heavy, and in places, thundery showers"

Weather fronts have energy in them naturally, of course: the movement and warmth of the atmosphere see to that. Anything above absolute zero (or even at absolute zero, if you want to be picky) has energy in it.
