Weather Balloons And Satellites
This past weekend (8/22/15) I talked with a long time friend. He is a retired Federal National Weather Serviceman. Previously, before I discovered the truths of the flat earth, we were talking about weather balloons. It confused me that there are still weather balloons that are sent up to track the weather. I didn't understand the need for that with satellites.
With all the technology available today, weather balloons are still the primary source for weather info?
So, back to this past weekend.
I brought up weather balloons to him again to learn more about it. He was sharing with me that there is a grid of balloons sent out all over the United States. They send up balloons every 12 hours about 200 miles apart. They go up to 100k ft and when the gas expands the balloon enough, it pops and comes back down.
They don't have camera equipment on it. They measure pressure, temperature and other weather related metrics.
I asked about satellites. I wondered what kind of data they get from them?
Ready for this?
The only data are pictures.
For all the satellites in space, the only good a weather satellite does is to send pictures. It is pieces of the puzzle like this that continue to show that things are not as they seem.
He said that Canada, Mexico, Russia, Europe, and other areas all work together and share the information with each other.
