Growing up I used to read and watch my share of comics and television respectively, as such, one my number ones first super hero cartoons were the X-men. Today, the X-men are very much known thanks to the series of Marvel movies that have been appearing, among one of the most liked and popular X-men, there was the character “Storm.” Storm’s mutant super power was that at any point she wished she would make a storm or lightening bolt appear. If she wished she could make a sunny day into a cloudy one or snow freeze the roads so that her enemies would slip up. At any turn, if Storm wanted she could very well turn around any situation on her favour.
Fast forward about a decade since Storm hit the television screen bringing to the minds of children the idea of weather modification. Is such thing possible? Even if anyone would love to deny that weather modification is not real and it is just a far fetched science fiction idea, no on can deny that the conditions (or otherwise, the technology and know–how) to realize weather modification does exist. It is pretty much like questioning weather the potential to clone humans is possible. The question it is not weather it is possible, it is weather is happening. Therefore, the real question for weather modification is not weather it is real, the question likewise is whether it is happening. I asked myself that questions as the start of my research on this topic. My findings does lead me to believe that it is indeed happening. First of all, because the news about governments like Russia and China openly admitting that they are current manipulating the weather, but also because this type of evidence is not new. Reports of weather modification have been around for decades. To name a few I will present a few reasons why weather modification is more than just science fiction: 1. U.S. patents given to organizations, like NASA, to alter the weather A number of patents for weather modification are widely available online. If we look at the titles themselves we see that the different ways weather modification has been set in motion: Such is “Weather control by artificial means” by Heinz W. Kasemir, [http://www.google.com/patents?vid=3284005] OR “Combustible compositions for generating aerosols, particularly suitable for cloud modification and weather control and aerosolization process” by the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche [http://www.google.com/patents?vid=3630950] 2. The number of reports of weather modification by governments: The Vancouver Sun reported: “Calgary hail storm: Cloud seeding credited for sparing city from worse disaster” Reports such as this one from The Vancouver Sun describe how a weather modification company directly affected the outcome of the weather. “Before the storm hit, Krauss said, the company sent all four of its cloud-seeding aircraft into the thick and swirling black clouds. The planes flew for more than 12 hours, shooting silver iodide, a chemical agent that helps limit the size of hail stones, at the top and base of the clouds, until midnight.” [http://www.vancouversun.com/news/calgary/Calgary+hail+storm+Cloud+seeding+credited+sparing+city+from/7087491/story.html] An article published on the Beijin 2008 olympic establishes very clear that the chinese government used high technology in order to prevent wet weather from affecting the opening ceremony. The article titled: ” Beijing uses high-tech to prevent rain from dampening Olympic opening” published by the Xinhuanet, clearly describes how the Beijin weather engineering office took the lead for the project. [http://en.beijing2008.cn/ceremonies/headlines/n214485376.shtml] Another article posted on 2010 describes the different methods that the Russian government “drives the clouds away.” “Either there’s a special machine that spits out silver iodide, dry ice or cement into the clouds, or a hatch opens and a guy with a shovel seeds the clouds manually,” he explains.” [http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/8587725.stm]
How cloud seeding works
In almost any case, the technology that surfaces over and over from different reports is cloud seeding, however cloud seeding is not the only method. There are widely open reports from the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), an official United States unclassified program situated Gakona, Alaska. If you try looking for HAARP on Google Maps. The most important instrument residing atHAARP is the Ionosphere Research Instrument (IRI), a high powered radio frequency transmitter used to temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere. What happens after has raised a number of theories, there are many that describe the direct manipulation of weather through the heating of the ionosphere. For long, this was mere speculation, however some events such as the statements of spokes persons, like former Air Force personelle. A book written by Nick Begich titled “Angels Don’t Play This HAARP” came out detailing the different ways that the HAARP project actually directly influences and inhibits earthquakes and other weather modifications around the world.
Whether it is HAARP or cloud seeding, the methodology is rather unimportant, the truth is weather modification is happening. Why is it happening? Many agree that since the ability to influence the weather does exist, the area of society that would most benefit is the shakes and moves of the stock market, where if “someone” could have the know-how about the onset of weather patterns. then millions could be made. There is something called weather derivates, which are the wagers on the state of the weather and its impact on the production of commodities, such as crops. In the last couple of decades, and probably most noticeably in this year, we have seen severe weather occurrences, with draughts in the North America and weather oddities around the world. As a result, the price of food is set to increase in the next couple of months. Who knows what the real motivations are for weather modification, the fact is it is happening and we ought to be responsible enough to be informed and inform others, because we are yet again not told the entire truth. When you hear about drastic weather, such as this current abnormally hot summer, we ought to know the reason and not assume it is a sign of apocalypse as most people would like to attribute these changes to end of times as it is speculated with the end of the Mayan calendar.
