Pressing Refresh Notes:

While searching for more information, I came across this amazing site:

Agriculture Defense Coalition

Welcome to the Plumas County, California, Section of the ADC Website.

The residents of Plumas County are in the process of mobilizing to put a stop to the PG&E Weather Modification Programs, their installations of Smart Meters, without public consent, and other programs which will cost all PG&E customers $Millions of dollars while diminishing public health.  The Plumas County section of the ADC Website will be updated each month with more information on these and other programs.

The PDF Files that you will find below will provide you with information about various programs that are ongoing in Plumas County.  The one in blue below proves that PG&E notified the Plumas County Board of Supervisors that they would be conducting Weather Modification Programs in the Fall of 2010 and the Winter and Spring of 2011.  These programs are conducted from November through May of each year. (Just Click on the OCT 15, 2010 date below to read the letter.)”
