In light of the ever increasing carnage "nature" appears to inflict on human beings, it is important to document how much influence governments claim to have over our environment.
In August of 1952, North Devon experienced 250 times the normal rainfall for that time and area. This caused massive floods that killed 35 people. The BBC now admits that this happened days after RAF rain-making experiments over southern England.1
The Chinese government openly uses this technology.2 Although it is claimed that it only manages to increase precipitation by 20%, this is doubtful, considering the fact that in the 50's, Britain was already capable of creating rainfall at levels 250 times above normal. Russia uses the technology to ensure it never rains in Moscow during parades.
Finally, the American "High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program" or HAARP, can be used for weather control, as mentioned by it's patent which mentions:
This invention has a phenomenal variety of possible ramifications and potential future developments. As alluded to earlier, missile or aircraft destruction, deflection, or confusion could result, particularly when relativistic particles are employed. Also, large regions of the atmosphere could be lifted to an unexpectedly high altitude so that missiles encounter unexpected and unplanned drag forces with resultant destruction or deflection of same. Weather modification is possible by, for example, altering upper atmosphere wind patterns or altering solar absorption patterns by constructing one or more plumes of atmospheric particles which will act as a lens or focusing device. Also as alluded to earlier, 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. Similarly, environmental enhancement could be achieved by causing the breakup of various chemical entities such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrous oxides, and the like. Transportation of entities can also be realized when advantage is taken of the drag effects caused by regions of the atmosphere moving up along diverging field lines. Small micron sized particles can be then transported, and, under certain circumstances and with the availability of sufficient energy, larger particles or objects could be similarly affected. Particles with desired characteristics such as tackiness, reflectivity, absorptivity, etc., can be transported for specific purposes or effects. For example, a plume of tacky particles could be established to increase the drag on a missile or satellite passing therethrough. Even plumes of plasma having substantially less charged particle density than described above will produce drag effects on missiles which will affect a lightweight (dummy) missile in a manner substantially different than a heavy (live) missile and this affect can be used to distinguish between the two types of missiles. A moving plume could also serve as a means for supplying a space station or for focusing vast amount of sunlight on selected portions of the earth.3
Of course, the possible uses of weather control are countless. It's potential usefulness in warfare should be clear to anyone. The fierce Russian winter has determined the outcome of history multiple times. Elections can be determined by the weather.4 Simply make it rain in the strongholds of the candidate you want to see lose, and clear up the weather in the strongholds of the candidate you want to see emerge victorious. Especially in the United States, where we have battleground states, this could be efficiently used. There would be little point in changing the weather in Utah during a presidential election, but plenty of people would want to see heavy rain fall down in certain areas of Florida. It seems the only limiting factor to the uses of weather control is the creativity and willpower of those who control this technology.
Or, depending on how ruthless those in possession of weather warfare weapons are, weather control could be used to destroy food crops, and kill or displace hundreds of thousands of people. Floods have killed millions in China.5 This is important to note, in light of a British document named DCDC Strategic Trends warning of the possibility of a natural disaster triggering the collapse of China:
China’s economic growth will be accompanied by significant demographic changes,
including the urbanization of its population, which uniquely among developing countries, is ageing. These factors, together with changing patterns of land use, the failure to deliver per capita prosperity and environmental stresses caused by climate change and pollution, could reduce China’s traditional resilience to natural disaster. A future large-scale disaster might therefore cause China’s progress towards strategic power status to stall and might even result in it becoming a failed state, prone to civil conflict and separatism.
To guarantee it's status as the world's new superpower and subjugate it's enemies, the United States military was willing to drop two atomic bombs on Japan, knowing this would kill hundreds of thousands immediately, and countless more later on. If it finds it's position threatened by a rising power like China, it seems naive to believe it would be unwilling to trigger a "natural" disaster in China.6
Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen himself "warned" about weather control and it's potential usefulness for terrorists, in a speech hosted on a Department of Defense website.7 He said:
"There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops. Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.
So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why this is so important."
With this in mind, it is a legitimate question to ask why the United States military was holding relief drills involving a hurricane hitting Haiti, one day in advance of the earthquake that killed over 200.000 people.8 The United States was capable of responding to the disaster as quick as it did because it had already prepared for the exercise. In light of this it is remarkable that HAARP seems to be missing data in it's charts, a day before the earthquake.9
