Unconventional Weather Control and Warfare

October and November are tough months for what concerns rainfall in Europe and in the general Northern hemisphere. Italy has been bashed with battering downpours that have swollen rivers and sent streams of disaster through the streets. The Region of Liguira and the Italian Riviera were at the epicenter of such havoc. Storms at the end of October ravaged through the scenic Cinque Terre National Park in Italy, smashing into small scenic towns such as Monterosso al Mare, practically wiping them off the map. Only a week later, flashfloods ran uncontrolled through the streets of Genoa and sent everything from furniture to cars sailing down the historic port city.

Halfway around the world, Bangkok also felt the rage of monsoon like rainfall as murky chest-deep waters started to flood the Thailand capital streets back in mid-October. In both places, casualties cannot be neglected and the damage to local infrastructures mounts to significant amounts. Now Thailand must grip with the risk of spreading pestilence as waste waters have seeped into the water table and leave a hazardous trail of toxins throughout the city; and the already burdened Italian economy must deal with the costs left behind by this crazy autumn weather.

But what if we could stop floods from happening. Is that just a utopia or can it actually be done? The world would certainly be spared deluge related devastation, at least in cases where flooding is due to excessive rainfall and not due to cases of dam failure, tsunamis and the like. Why it might even be possible to create the reverse effect and actually stir up the proper weather conditions to create precipitation over a given area for a determined amount of time. Drought stricken swaths of land could receive the necessary rainfall to sustain crops while menacing overcast skies could be cleared up by dispelling cloud formation and, hence, regulate rain.

Weather control is not a new topic, and many would argue that it’s the very attempt to govern the weather patterns that got us into this predicament in the first place. Perhaps it may be the case; but climate change has its own background and facts that require due attention, while the purpose here is to illustrate some of the attempts made at weather control, without judgment on whether such methods are good or bad for us. However, a curious fact on climate change that is worth stating regards the “propaganda change”. The last two decades have seen a rise in news concerning global warming, so much so that the term “greenhouse effect” has become a household term served with breakfast. It seems that the 70s was stage for the “deep freeze” scare and that we’d all one day be blanketed in ice and snow while for eons to come. Something just doesn’t match up here.

Some foresight into the forecast

Weather control may soon call to mind conspiracy theories galore; and though studies into controlling weather patterns are rather common, the purpose here is to take a look at “unorthodox” techniques that have a basis of feasibility to them. Indeed, unconventional methods – deemed such only due to the fact that they are not disclosed to the general public as sound and functional – contain evidence of achieving modification of weather. Therefore, we’ll stray away from traditional cloud seeding which entails spraying small particles (like silver iodide) into the sky in order to trigger cloud formation. The hope is that the water vapor already in the air will condense onto the particles, forming clouds and eventually falling as rain. Cloud seeding only works to the extent that there is already water vapor present in the air. The principal goal is just to force precipitation to fall in one area instead of another. Perhaps a slight overview on how weather works is required, though in no way is it possible to explain all the complex dynamics in a brief essay, aside from the fact that as an amateur I am not able to do so.

Almost all familiar weather phenomena occur in the troposphere (the lower part of the atmosphere). Weather occurs primarily due to density (temperature and moisture) differences between one place to another. These differences can occur due to the sun angle at any particular spot, which varies by latitude from the tropics. In other words, the farther from the tropics you lie, the lower the sun angle is, which causes those locations to be cooler due to the indirect sunlight. The strong temperature contrast between polar and tropical air gives rise to the jet stream.

Reich and his cloudbuster

The Earth is heated unevenly due to axial tilt in relation to the sun, with more heat at the equator. In addition, uneven solar heating (the formation of zones of temperature and moisture gradients, or frontogenesis) can also be due to the weather itself in the form of cloudiness and precipitation, while higher altitudes are cooler than lower altitudes. On local scales, temperature differences can occur because different surfaces (such as oceans, forests, ice sheets, or man-made objects) have differing physical characteristics such as reflectivity, roughness, or moisture content.

Surface temperature differences in turn cause pressure differences. A hot surface heats the air above it and the air expands, lowering the air pressure and its density. The resulting horizontal pressure gradient accelerates the air from high to low pressure, creating wind, and Earth's rotation then causes curvature of the flow via the Coriolis effect. The simple systems thus formed can then display emergent behavior to produce more complex systems and thus other weather phenomena.

Canons to move the sky

You may be familiar with Australian singer’s video named “Cloudbusting” in which a “mad scientist”, helped by his assistant, hauls a large contraption up a hill. The machine has many cylindrical tubes projecting from it; and causes a rain shower after being aimed at the sky. The song, in my opinion is very upbeat; but what really stands out is the fact that the events behind the tune are based on documented truth. The inventor in the video is a portrayal of Dr. Wilhelm Reich, father of the orgone theory.

Wilhelm Reich, originally part of Sigmund Freud's Vienna circle, extrapolated the Freudian concept of libido first as a biophysical and later as a universal life force. In its final conception, developed by Reich's student Charles Kelly after Reich's death, orgone was conceived as the anti-entropic principle of the universe, a creative substratum in all of nature comparable to Mesmer's animal magnetism, the Odic force of Carl Reichenbach and Henri Bergson's élan vital. Orgone was seen as a massless, omnipresent substance, similar to luminiferous aether, but more closely associated with living energy than inert matter. It could coalesce to create organization on all scales, from the smallest microscopic units—called bions in orgone theory—to macroscopic structures like organisms, clouds, or even galaxies. Orgone theory states that its natural flow is vital to a healthy individual as well as life on earth.

Reich posited a conjugate, life-annulling energy in opposition to orgone, which he dubbed Deadly Orgone or DOR. He wrote that accumulations of DOR played a role in desertification, and he designed a “cloudbuster” with which he said he could manipulate streams of orgone energy in the atmosphere to induce rain by forcing clouds to form and disperse. It was a set of hollow metal pipes and cables inserted into water, which Reich argued created a stronger orgone energy field than was in the atmosphere, the water drawing the atmospheric orgone through the pipes. Reich conducted dozens of experiments with the cloudbuster, calling the research “Cosmic Orgone Engineering.”

In 1953, a drought threatened Maine’s blueberry crop, and several farmers offered to pay Reich if he could make it rain. The weather bureau had reportedly forecast no rain for several days when Reich began the experiment on at 10 a.m. on July 6, 1953. The Bangor Daily News reported on July 24: Dr. Reich and three assistants set up their “rain-making” device off the shore of Grand Lake, near the Bangor hydro-electric dam … The device, a set of hollow tubes, suspended over a small cylinder, connected by a cable, conducted a “drawing” operation for about an hour and ten minutes …

According to a reliable source in Ellsworth the following climactic changes took place in that city on the night of July 6 and the early morning of July 7: “Rain began to fall shortly after ten o’clock Monday evening, first as a drizzle and then by midnight as a gentle, steady rain. Rain continued throughout the night, and a rainfall of 0.24 inches was recorded in Ellsworth the following morning.”

A puzzled witness to the “rain-making” process said: “The queerest looking clouds you ever saw began to form soon after they got the thing rolling.” And later the same witness said the scientists were able to change the course of the wind by manipulation of the device.

A HAARP in heaven and on earth

As said earlier, most weather phenomena occurs in the troposphere, which is the bottom layer of the Earth’s atmosphere. Now what would happen if we applied a massive dose of energy to above layers? Certainly pressure fronts and the flow of the jet stream would change; and such modifications would increase in potency with the amount of energy released. H.A.A.R.P. (High-Frequency Active Aural Research Program) currently releases a staggering 1.7 billion watts of energy into the ionosphere, acting as a giant heater with potential localized or widespread effects.

The main instrument at HAARP Station is the Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI). This is a high power, high-frequency phased array radio transmitter with a set of 180 antennas, disposed in an array of 12x15 units that occupy a rectangle of about 33 acres (13 hectares). The IRI is used to temporarily energize a small portion of the ionosphere.

The patent registered for the HAARP technology states as follows:

"Weather modification is possible by, for example, altering upper atmosphere wind patterns by constructing one or more plumes of atmospheric particles which will act as a lens or focusing device.

... molecular modifications of the atmosphere can take place so that positive environmental effects can be achieved. Besides actually changing the molecular composition of an atmospheric region, a particular molecule or molecules can be chosen for increased presence. For example, ozone, nitrogen, etc., concentrations in the atmosphere could be artificially increased."

Weather warfare

From a military standpoint, HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction. Potentially, it constitutes an instrument of conquest capable of selectively destabilizing agricultural and ecological systems of entire regions. While there is no evidence that this deadly technology has been used, surely the United Nations should be addressing the issue of "environmental warfare" alongside the debate on the climatic impacts of greenhouse gases.

Despite a vast body of scientific knowledge, the issue of deliberate climatic manipulations for military use has never been explicitly part of the UN agenda on climate change. Neither the official delegations nor the environmental action groups participating in the Hague Conference on Climate Change (CO6) (November 2000) have raised the broad issue of "weather warfare" or "environmental modification techniques (ENMOD)" as relevant to an understanding of climate change.

The clash between official negotiators, environmentalists and American business lobbies has centered on Washington's outright refusal to abide by commitments on carbon dioxide reduction targets under the 1997 Kyoto protocol. The impacts of military technologies on the World's climate are not an object of discussion or concern. Narrowly confined to greenhouse gases, the ongoing debate on climate change serves Washington's strategic and defense objectives.

World renowned scientist Dr. Rosalie Bertell confirms that "US military scientists are working on weather systems as a potential weapon. The methods include:

the enhancing of storms and the diverting of vapor rivers in the Earth's atmosphere to produce targeted droughts or floods."

Already in the 1970s, former National Security advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski had foreseen in his book "Between Two Ages" that:

"Technology will make available, to the leaders of major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of the security forces need be appraised... Techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm. "

A scheme of the Coriolis effect that propagates weather

Marc Filterman, a former French military officer, outlines several types of "unconventional weapons" using radio frequencies. He refers to "weather war" indicating that the U.S. and the Soviet Union had already "mastered the know-how needed to unleash sudden climate changes (hurricanes, drought) in the early 1980s". These technologies make it "possible to trigger atmospheric disturbances by using Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) radar [waves]".

A simulation study of future defense "scenarios" commissioned for the US Air Force calls for: "US aerospace forces to 'own the weather' by capitalizing on emerging technologies and focusing development of those technologies to war-fighting applications". From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control, weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary. In the United States, weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications.

Are they changing the forecast while you read?

The answer to this conclusive section is: maybe. Reich’s cloudbuster has attracted thousands of would be – weather oracles who attempt to reproduce these contraptions, albeit often on a small and homemade scale, to dispel bad weather and chemtrails. There are many recounts of cloud coverage modification at a localized level, though I personally cannot vouch for the authenticity of these reports – always bearing in mind scientific reproducibility as a set condition and skimming away the pompous New Age mumbo-jumbo; but fact remains that Reich was blocked by the U.S. government from proceeding with his research in this field and he was tossed in prison while his books were destroyed in a N.Y. incinerator.

With regard to H.A.A.R.P, there has never been any public statement saying that the U.S. government, or any other, is or has ever been employed to this end. Controversy surrounds world catastrophes such as Hurricane Katrina and coincidence may have it that HAARP was extremely active on August 24th, 2005 as the storm hit Florida. This can be seen in the chart highlighting the absorption of energy by the antenna array. Though the energy released into the ionosphere is many magnitudes lower than that released by the sun, HAARP is able to set things in motion if “timed” correctly. It does remain certain, however, that the man able to control weather is the man that will also dominate the world, through any potential beneficial or disastrous effects generated.

In dealing with this issue I always like to go back to the Lovelock theory of Gaia that envisions the planet as a living breathing organisms with its own intelligence and consciousness. Lovelock said that Gaia will regenerate itself once a certain balance has been crossed, idea that finds its origin in the culture of Natural Peoples worldwide. So, maybe we are just a bunch of bedbugs and Gaia is just scratching a bothersome itch.
