Conspiracy theorists all across the globe have been crawling out the woodwork to give their opinions on the "fake snow" in Texas. Now, science has stepped in to prove this conspiracy theory wrong once and for all...

Claims of government-generated snow have been rife online...


And now the absurd allegations have spread across the pond to the UK.

Read on for the crazy videos...

The news comes after Texas has been experiencing serious problems with power outages.

Over 4 million people have been left without electricity, heating, and hot water.

Things are becoming deadly...

But those that were "lucky" enough to have lighting and heating are also regretting it due to the influx in prices by providers.

Greg Abbott, the governor of Texas, released a statement following a recent emergency meeting about the power outages...

"We are moving quickly to alleviate this problem and will continue to work collaboratively throughout this week on solutions to help Texas families and ensure they do not get stuck with skyrocketing energy bills."

But, despite the generally "positive" outlook on the situation, Texans have been suffering incredibly.

The current weather conditions are something that we haven't seen in decades.

And it's not only just that one state. Other southern states have also been left without electricity and running water...

With so many people and their families being forced into unbearable living situations.

According to The Guardian, professionals have noted that the heating of the arctic may be to blame for these crazy changes in the weather down south...

Especially for the snowstorms that have been brutally hitting the people of Texas.

They explained the situation:

"[Experts claim] there is evidence that the rapid heating of the Arctic can help push frigid air from the north pole much further south, possibly to the US-Mexico border."

Things have gotten so bad in the last few weeks that people have been forced to evacuate their homes...

And due to the addition of heavy snowstorms and below-freezing temperatures, many states - in particular Texas - have been left completely powerless in most areas.

And not only that, but over fifty deaths have been reported so far...

Sadly, this number is expected to rise.

People are doing their best to push through this difficult period...

But with little to no options, some have been forced to make do with what they've got.

Many homes have been left for days without running water...

And people are having to melt the snow from their front yards in order to flush their toilets and wash their hands.

People have been taking to social media to share their new living situations during the unbearable temperatures...

Including Twitch streamer, Edwin Castro, who has been playing video games and streaming in the comfort of his car due to the power cuts.

This Twitter user shared this shocking photo of their fan...

That had literally frozen to the ceiling and had icicles dangling down from it.

And perhaps the most shocking of them all...

This unfortunate mom found her daughter's fish tank completely frozen with the fish trapped inside.

This is something that hasn't been experienced for decades...

Which left people unsure of what to do.

But now, it seems the big freeze is slowly coming to an end...

But that hasn't stopped people spreading conspiracy theories about the unusual weather...

The widespread news has led some to believe that the snow in Texas is actually fake...

Conspiracy theorists blame president Joe Biden for the chaos, who has apparently created fake snow that "doesn't melt."

Videos shared on social media show people attempting to burn the snow with lighters while the snow stays the same.

One video shows a man putting a pan full of snow into his oven. According to him, none of it melted.

But it still raises the question, why is the snow not melting? Well, it's a scientific term called "sublimation."

WTVR News meteorologist Mike Stone explains: "When you heat something like this, it goes from a solid to a gas. It's called sublimation. This is actually disappearing by going into vapor."

Dr Tandy Grubbs, professor and chair of the department of chemistry and biochemistry at Stetson University, also gave his opinion on the matter...

"Soot would ordinarily not be visible when a lighter is burning in the open air, but the snowball, in this case, is acting as a filter, catching and accumulating the black soot particles, which show up quite visibly on the white snow after a few seconds of exposure."

However, despite the clear scientific explanation of why the snow isn't melting...

TikTokers are still spreading bogus claims that the snow is fake and was engineered by the government...

The hashtag #governmentsnow currently has over 1 million views...

"Fake snow" was a top related-search for "Texas snow" on Wednesday, and it looks like people can't shake the idea, despite scientific evidence that debunks the theory. Yikes.
