Here are some highlighted quotes:
A portion of the United States Navy program in weather modification
is devoted to the logistic and flight support of the joint N 0 A AI
Navy research program on hurricane modification (Project Stormfury).
In addition, it supports studies of cloud and fog dissipation and
the development of pyrotechnic seeding devices. The Office of Naval
Research has for many years supported several basic research programs·
in atmospheric electricity, some of which are relevant to the
possibility of artificially modifying lightning from thunderstorms.
The United States Army is involved in studies of fog dissipation,
atmospheric electricity, and convective cloud dynamics.
The United States Air Force is similarly interested in the dynamics
of convective cloud systems that affect the flight of aircraft and
missiles and the dissipation of fogs and low stratus clouds. It has
also participated in Project Stormfury. During the course of this
study, no attempt was made by the Panel to examine classified
experimental programs or to ascertain the existence of classified
experimental programs in weather modification.
Project Stormfury? Could this also be a reason for Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy that displayed uncharacteristic behaviors and made landfall in high populated areas of the United States? Also how California is in extreme drought with perceptible systems avoiding this state?
Is this the reason for certain viral "outbreaks," bacterial "epidemics," and the prevalence of Morgellons disease?Public attention in connection
with military usage was also rapid and set a pattern of extravagant and
fanciful images of power and danger that would continue for twenty years:
Army, Navy and Air Force are spending close to a million dollars
a year on weather modificatin and their tremendous interest
suggests that military applications extend far beyond visiting
a few showers upon an enemy. It does not require a sharp mind
to figure out that wartime storms might readily be infected with
virulent bacteriological and radiological substances. (14)
Orville also reported that the USSR
'" had conducted numerous unpublicized but still detectable
experiments apparently aimed at finding ways to speed melting
of polar icecaps; and has even offered to join the United
States in a project to turn the Arctic Ocean into a sort of
warm water lake by melting the polar icecap.
So Global Warming and Climate Change have nothing to do with icecap melting? As with any large scale weather modification how can there be Global Warming or Climate Change if militaries and countries are messing with the ionosphere?
Moreover, ones own research was innocent, while a similar ~
claim on the part of the antagonist was "largely propagandistic," a
theme which would also be retained for many years.
"Officials say current Pentagon research ... is limited to rainmaking,
rain suppression, and hail and fog dispersal. The latter
is useful in controlling flying weather ... The Soviets claim
their weather research is only for peaceful purposes - a claim
the Pentagon calls 'largely propagandistic'. A spokesman says
the Soviets are conducting extensive work on weather alteration
which could be used in military operations." (26)
Yet the Pentagon and other official government source call people who reference their work, take photographic evidence of chemical trails in the sky, and notice the unnatural weather patterns in the last few decades as Conspiracy Theorist. Isn't that propaganda too?
In 1963 Adm. William F. Raborn J
previously responsable for the Polaris SLBM development program and then
Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Development, included the following
description in an article titled IINew Horizons of Naval Research and
The possibilities for the military employment of the II wea ther
weapon ll may be as di verse as they are numerous. An abi 1 ity to
control the weather could introduce greater changes in warfare
than those which occurred in 1945 with the explosion of the
first nuclear weapons.
A severe storm or hurricane striking a naval force may well
inflict greater damage than could an enemy. The capability to
change the direction of destructive storms and guide them toward
enemy concentrations may exist in the future arsenal of the naval
Ground, sea, air, and amphibious operations might be supported
by the dissipation of fog or clouds, or by the production of
rain or drought. Conversely, the creation of solid, lowovercasts
might be used to conceal troop concentrations, movements,
and task force deployments. Large-scale weather control techniques
might be used to cause extensive flooding in strategic
areas or even to bring a new "iceagell upon the enemy. By
influencing the ionosphere and atmosphere simultaneously,
magnetic,acoustic, and pressure effects might be generated in
such a way that oceanwide sweeping of mines would occur.
We already have taken our first steps toward developing an
environmental warfare capability. We are using satellite weather
data from Tiros II for current, tactical operations and more
accurate, long-range weather predictions. Some experiments in
fog dissipation have shown promise, and some exploratory research
has been conducted on ways to change the heading of major storms.
For these reasons -- and because our advances in science make
it reasonable -- we are now engaged in planning a ten-year,
comprehensive study of the atmosphere, a stu~y which we will
designate ATMOS. This plan will be coordinated with our TENOC
oceanographic studies. (31)
Did the military admit that its weather modification capabilities are far more extensive use for weather modification than is realized by most Americans?
A 1972 statement by USAF Gen. Robert T. March was a good deal more
Lastly, contributions of military R&D to weather research will
focus on what might be the least appreciated of all the disciplines.
Military R&D programs in meteorology include weather observing and
forecasting, weather-data processing and dissemination, meteorological
equipment development, computerized flight planning, atmospheric
research, the Standard Atmosphere, and fog dissemination. These
topics will be reviewed and discussed in terms of both present and
future inputs. (341·
So the government and its defense contractors create, predict, and modify the weather?
Dr. Robert W.White, Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
"It is not possiole to draw-clear distinctions between research and
technological development on weatlier modification for hostile and
non-hostile purposes." (35)
Dr. Thomas F.Malone, Chairman, National Academy of Sciences Review Panel
on Weather and Climate Modification:
"I do not think military research should be explicitly prohibited
because (a) it is almost impossible to differentiate between
research directed at beneficial use and research directed at
fashioning geophysical weaponry; (b) our national civilian
effort in this field would be seriously disrupted because we
freely intermingle military and civilian resources; and (c)
our military forces must have expert scientific competence to
fulfill their role in providing national security." (36)
Did NOAA admit that civilians are not involved because the military best keeps its secrets?
This document is a fascinating report on what weather modification, how long it has been used and studied as well as its implications for creating the Global Warming, Climate Change scams.
