American government conspiracy theories create disaster in Texas blizzard | World


“Has anyone tried to play with government-created snow?” is a social conspiracy headline that includes the TikTok app.

In a video on TikTok, a woman does an experiment to burn a snowball to prove it is “artificial snow”. Woman holding snowball on fire.

The woman at the same time accused the US government and billionaire Bill Gates “trying to trick us into believing this is real snow.”

In the experiment, the snowball did not melt and had a black streak that left TikTok users wondering if it was real or artificial snow.

Some social media users also said that the US government “intervened” in the severe snowstorm and even had a “malicious conspiracy” to cause damage to Texas.
Last week, the blizzard brought icy weather to much of central America, with Texas being one of the worst hit states after the disaster, with millions of people without power and the water supply infrastructure system was severely damaged.

However, there are also many people who give a scientific explanation for “mysteriously insoluble” snow.

Specifically, an explanation was given that the “phenomenon” of snow that does not melt on a small fire is because water is absorbed into the remaining snow, so initially at a low temperature, the snow will not melt. It is due to the unburnt organic hydrocarbons (hydrocarbons) from organic butane (the fuel commonly used in lighters) causes soot to stick to the snowball, making it appear black.

This is not the first time that “fake” snow conspiracy theories have appeared on the internet. This conspiracy theory appeared after a severe snowstorm in the city of Atlanta (Georgia) in 2014.

At that time, expert Phil Plait, specializing in writing for the magazine Slate, had to film himself a video of the snowball experiment to debunk the conspiracy theory.

“Many people who make videos show that the snow is not dripping so it doesn’t look like it really melted because they deliberately did the half-way experiment, didn’t complete the experiment to let the snow actually melt!”, Mr. Plait note.
