BackStory Takes the Airwaves on Pioneer Day

Jul 25, 2012

Tuesday's Access Utah is overtaken by extreme weather as The Backstory takes over the airwaves. 

The History Guys talk about the first time Americans received disaster relief from the federal government, rain-making, and of course, weather. 

"Because when you control the weather there's no such thing as an act of God. When something goes wrong, you're to blame."

In 1946 General Electric tried their hand at weather modification, and could create snow. But they canceled the program. "General Electric got scared. Because when you control the weather, there's no such thing as an act of God. When something goes wrong, you're to blame. "

The History Guys also talk about the Aurora Borealis, and call listeners who have experienced extreme weather.
