"In 2025, US aerospace forces can "own the weather" by capitalizing on emerging technologies and focusing development of those technologies to war-fighting applications. Such a capability offers the war fighter tools to shape the battlespace in ways never before possible. It provides opportunities to impact operations across the full spectrum of conflict and is pertinent to all possible futures. The purpose of this paper is to outline a strategy for the use of a future weather-modification system to achieve military objectives rather than to provide a detailed technical road map.
A high-risk, high-reward endeavor, weather-modification offers a dilemma not unlike the splitting of the atom. While some segments of society will always be reluctant to examine controversial issues such as weather-modification, the tremendous military capabilities that could result from this field are ignored at our own peril. From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control, weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary. Some of the potential capabilities a weather-modification system could provide to a war-fighting commander in chief (CINC) are listed in table 1.
Technology advancements in five major areas are necessary for an integrated weather-modification capability: (1) advanced nonlinear modeling techniques, (2) computational capability, (3) information gathering and transmission, (4) a global sensor array, and (5) weather intervention techniques. Some intervention tools exist today and others may be developed and refined in the future."
The highly respected climatologist, Alan Robock, is quoted as saying, "On January 19, 2011, I got a phone call from two men who told me they were consultants for the CIA. Roger Lueken and Michael Canes, analysts for the Logistics Management Institute, asked, among other things, “If another country were trying to control our climate, would we be able to detect it?” This raises a red flag and can be interpreted a couple ways. Verbatim, it suggests that one of the most sophisticated agencies in the world has "concerns" about Weather Modification. On the other hand, as noted by Robock, it could suggest an inverted question that is really asking an expert climatologist whether or not he would be able to detect weather manipulation being conducted by some “Agency.” In February 2015 the U.S. National Academies of Science released a two-volume report on geoengineering which calls for increased investment in countering climate change. The CIA was a major sponsor of this study.
Beyond such things as warfare and agricultural rainfall production, weather modification technology may hold grave global implications through potential abilities to destabilize economies, ecosystems and the agriculture of targeted adversaries. Targeted regions (or states) could, in turn, be forced into dependence on the purchase and import of commodities from the same entity, or allies thereof, that initiated the environmental attack. On the other hand, the potentially Earth-friendly, environmental benefits that weather modification technologies could possibly possess is unknown, but would undoubtedly be welcomed. But, for all intents and purposes, Weather Modification technology could be considered a Weapon of Mass Destruction.
Directed Energy usage for Weather Modification is not something that can be easily documented or protested. Because you cannot see, hear, smell, taste or even feel Directed Energy (in certain instances), it is very hard to identify and prove its usage. This is not unlike the experiences of some journalist, protesters, dissidents and other "Targeted Individuals" whom have been victimized by the use of Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs).
Despite what the state of the technology suggests, due to a fear of government backlash, you won't hear the terms, "ionospheric heating," "weather modification," or "environmental modification" being used in the debates on global warming. The topic is conveniently left out of mainstream media conversations about global warming. The majority of people (including journalists), unlike this author, are driven more by their fears than by truth and principles, so the end result becomes mass ignorance and environmental catastrophe.
