Geo-Engineering: Controlling the Climate and Weather

Recall the pleasure derived from the last time you took a walk through a park on a day when the weather was perfect. The sunshine was bright, the temperature was perfect, and perhaps there was a slight breeze that left you the ultimate feeling of refreshment as it caressed your face. Or perhaps you can remember the last time you enjoyed the sounds and smells of a light April shower that left the trees and grass looking so green and the air so fresh that you just couldn’t resist taking a deep cleansing breath. No doubt everyone can remember times such as these or similar instances when the weather was responsible for bringing ...view middle of the document...

This form of weather manipulation has been around for a long time and is used also in the control of the intensity of strong storms such as hurricanes. Since the most destruction from hurricanes comes from those with the smallest diameter eyes, cloud seeding has been used, according once again to, to broaden the size of the eye or create a new one and in so doing, lessen the strength of the original storm. An even more successful method of controlling the strength of a storm such as a hurricane and possibly even eliminating the storm was reported on by Michael Behar in the Popular Science article “Can We Stop Storms?”. In this article it talks about the method of dropping tons of water-absorbing powder or gel into a storm to intentionally dry it out and as a result lessen its strength or bring it to a sudden end all together. This has been a successful experiment. The firm developing the powder and gel used in such a method is a firm by the name of Dyn-O-Mat, located in Jupiter, Florida. And while controlling a storm locally is truly a reality, there is an even more surprising method of weather control that has the potential to affect weather anywhere in the world from just one vantage point. The military of the United States has established the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program, nicknamed HAARP. This system uses high frequency electromagnetic waves to disrupt the layer of the atmosphere known as the ionosphere. By the use of such energy, literally millions of kilowatts, it has been possible for the last 40 years to manipulate weather, not just in the immediate locale, but worldwide. In their book “The Military’s Pandora’s Box”, authors Dr. Nick Begich and Jeane Manning state that “rainmaking technology was taken for a few test rides in Vietnam. The U.S. Department of Defense sampled lightning and hurricane manipulation studies in Project Skyfire and Project Stormfury”. Other scientists have made the observation that there is an electrical connection between the ionosphere and other layers of the atmosphere, and because of this, a disruption of the ionosphere can disrupt weather over any area where the electrical disturbance is aimed. While the information demonstrating that weather manipulation is a fact is exhaustive, for the purpose of this paper my intention is to simply show with a few examples that it is indeed something that is a reality today.
But, as with most things, not only has the ability to manipulate the weather been used for good, such as lessening the strength and thus destructive ability of storms, but the military has already found ways to use it to gain tactical advantages over the enemy. Such is seen from the previously mentioned experiments done causing heavy rainfall in Vietnam during that war. In an article titled “The Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction:”Owning the Weather” for Military Use”, the author states “ The US Air Force has the capability of manipulating climate either...
