Alex Jones wonders if Joe Biden used ‘weather weapons’ to cause deadly tornadoes

As the Southern and Midwestern states pick up the pieces left behind by a series of deadly and devastating storms Friday night and early Saturday, “Infowars” host Alex Jones is already launching conspiracy theories to try to blame President Joe Biden.
Jones, who recently lost a fourth lawsuit over his lies that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was a hoax, told “The Alex Jones Show” listeners on Monday that the US government had developed “weapons weather “in the 1950s.
He cited a speech by former CIA Director John Brennan as supposed evidence for the existence of secret government “geoengineering systems”. In Brennan’s speech, delivered at a Council on Foreign Relations event in 2016, he discussed the geopolitical risks of climate geoengineering and the costs and benefits of its use as a potential tool to combat climate change. .
“So they just think you’re stupid and they don’t want you to know they’re doing all of this,” Jones said on his show, claiming that these systems would explain “why plants and animals were so much bigger and healthier, but we’ve adapted to live in less air.
Some researchers have discussed geoengineering as a way to reverse climate change by affecting weather and climate models with methods such as removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or increasing the reflectivity of the Earth. .
While the concept is a source of legitimate debate, it has given rise to several conspiracy theories, which supporters believe are already being carried out in secret so that the government can control the weather. There is no evidence that this is the case.
Jones then suggested that Biden may have “ordered” power to be cut in Texas in February, when the state was hit by a historic winter storm that resulted in widespread blackouts.
He added: “So the question is whether they used meteorological weapons to cause the tornadoes? It is a legitimate question to ask.
Biden will travel to Kentucky on Wednesday to study the areas hardest hit by the storms, which have killed at least 74 people in Kentucky and 14 in other states. Tornadoes were among the deadliest in recent U.S. history.
