Scenario: Imagine that in 2025 the US is fighting a rich, but now consolidated, politically powerful drug cartel in South America. The cartel has purchased hundreds of Russian-and Chinese-built fighters that have successfully thwarted our attempts to attack their production facilities. With their local numerical superiority and interior lines, the cartel is launching more than 10 aircraft for every one of ours. In addition, the cartel is using the French system probatoire d' observation de la terre (SPOT) positioning and tracking imagery systems, which in 2025 are capable of transmitting near-real-time, multispectral imagery with 1 meter resolution. The US wishes to engage the enemy on an uneven playing field in order to exploit the full potential of our aircraft and munitions.
Meteorological analysis reveals that equatorial South America typically has afternoon thunderstorms on a daily basis throughout the year. Our intelligence has confirmed that cartel pilots are reluctant to fly in or near thunderstorms. Therefore, our weather force support element (WFSE), which is a part of the commander in chief’s (CINC) air operations center (AOC), is tasked to forecast storm paths and trigger or intensify thunderstorm cells over critical target areas that the enemy must defend with their aircraft. Since our aircraft in 2025 have all-weather capability, the thunderstorm threat is minimal to our forces, and we can effectively and decisively control the sky over the target.
The WFSE has the necessary sensor and communication capabilities to observe, detect, and act on weather-modification requirements to support US military objectives. These capabilities are part of an advanced battle area system that supports the war-fighting CINC. In our scenario, the CINC tasks the WFSE to conduct storm intensification and concealment operations. The WFSE models the atmospheric conditions to forecast, with 90 percent confidence, the likelihood of successful modification using airborne cloud generation and seeding.
In 2025, uninhabited aerospace vehicles (UAV) are routinely used for weather-modification operations. By cross-referencing desired attack times with wind and thunderstorm forecasts and the SPOT satellite’s projected orbit, the WFSE generates mission profiles for each UAV. The WFSE guides each UAV using near-real-time information from a networked sensor array.
Prior to the attack, which is coordinated with forecasted weather conditions, the UAVs begin cloud generation and seeding operations. UAVs disperse a cirrus shield to deny enemy visual and infrared (IR) surveillance. Simultaneously, microwave heaters create localized scintillation to disrupt active sensing via synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems such as the commercially available Canadian search and rescue satellite-aided tracking (SARSAT) that will be widely available in 2025. Other cloud seeding operations cause a developing thunderstorm to intensify over the target, severely limiting the enemy’s capability to defend. The WFSE monitors the entire operation in real-time and notes the successful completion of another very important but routine weather-modification mission.
This scenario may seem far-fetched, but by 2025 it is within the realm of possibility. The next chapter explores the reasons for weather-modification, defines the scope, and examines trends that will make it possible in the next 30 years.
Sound fantastic? Right out of a Hollywood movie? It's not. It's what your tax dollars are paying the military to do. Here is the cover sheet to the report made to our Air Force:

2025 is a study designed to comply with a directive from the chief of staff of the Air Force to examine the concepts, capabilities, and technologies the United States will require to remain the dominant air and space force in the future. Presented on 17 June 1996, this report was produced in the Department of Defense school nvironment of academic freedom and in the interest of advancing concepts related to national defense. The views expressed in this report are those of the authors and do not reflect the official policy or position of the United States Air Force, Department of Defense, or the United States government.
This report contains fictional representations of future situations/scenarios. Any similarities to real people or events, other than those specifically cited, are unintentional and are for purposes of illustration only.
Really? Are you kidding me? Fictional representations are flying over American households and spraying Americans with toxic chemicals.
Here's part of the table of contents to this "study" and a short rebuttal:
1 Introduction...first things first, then the other planets
2 Required Capability .....obviously, not common sense
Why Would We Want to Mess with the Weather? ...b/c it's way past medication time
What Do We Mean by “Weather-modification”?....um, spraying crap over my house
3 System Description...00010110111000Error!Abort!
The Global Weather Network...b/c effing up one continent is not enough
Applying Weather-modification to Military Operations...yeah, on my house
4 Concept of Operations...the military has a concept?
Precipitation .....or lack thereof in California
Fog ....for the superhero effect
Storms ....like Sandy and Katrina to drive people off their land.
Exploitation of “NearSpace” for Space Control....NASA vs Star Wars
Opportunities Afforded by Space Weather-modification...more crap on my house
Communications Dominance via Ionospheric Modification....HAARP!
Artificial Weather ....ignitable snow in the midwest and it's not even July 4th!.
Concept of Operations Summary...even more crap on my house
5 Investigation Recommendations ..their investigation recommended destroying the Earth? yep, need meds and straight jackets.
How Do We Get There From Here? ...by poisoning everyone on Earth!
Conclusions ...stop spraying crap on my house
The inmates are running the asylum and we have further proof. Not only has the military made this study for our benefit but for anyone in the world to read. Thanks for admitting your complicity in destroying the Earth's ozone layer, air and water ways, your criminal trials should go more smoothly now.
And, if a big cartel or terrorist organization, the United States owns and operates, would like to fly out in their MIG's and attack US forces, all they will have to do to win is go online and implement all the geoengineering patents available to the public.
Kudos, Air Force.
