Although there is plenty of material on the subject, most people still believe this is the stuff of science-fiction rather than science. In reality, the United States Air Force pioneered some of the first efforts at weather modification, and likely continues to do so today under a greater cloak of secrecy. On the other hand, less secretive corporate interests have also pursued this technology.
Check out this company, for example.
Weather Modification Inc.
Who We AreWeather Modification, Inc., is a global atmospheric sciences company committed to continued advances in the field of weather modification. Whether it’s identifying the potential benefits of cloud seeding or monitoring air quality, we are dedicated to providing sound, scientific atmospheric solutions.
Nearly 50 Years of Expertise in Atmospheric Sciences
Weather Modification Inc., was founded in 1961, in the small town of Bowman, ND. Bowman is located in an area of the state where the average rainfall is near desert amounts and hail is common. In order to preserve the livelihood of the agricultural community, two pilots/farmers decided to enter the forefront of weather modification.
Our tradition of leadership and innovation continues to direct our future. What started as two aircraft and two pilots has grown to nearly 40 aircraft and more than 80 team members. We continue to expand our services and products to meet emerging client needs. Over the last fifteen years, WMI has broadened its service offerings to include environmental monitoring and expanded atmospheric assessment and evaluation.
Core values of quality, reliability, and innovation provide the framework for Weather Modification, Inc., These values, and our ever-changing planet, will continue to direct our team of scientists, meteorologists, electronics technicians, pilots, and maintenance engineers.
Perhaps the most public display of modern-day weather modification came from China during the Beijing Olympics.
BEIJING — As they prepare to host the Olympics — an event whose very purpose is to push the limits of human beings — the Chinese are trying to do what man never has: Control the weather.With five months to go before the Summer Games come to Beijing, Chinese scientists say they are confident they can keep rain away from the opening ceremony, or summon a storm on cue to clear the city's choking pollution.It's a bold — and, according to international scientists, dubious — bit of stage managing, even for a nation that has already shown an outsize ambition to use the Olympics to showcase its development from rural poverty to economic powerhouse.China is spending $40 billion to remake the infrastructure of the ancient capital, and it already spends an estimated $100 million a year and employs 50,000 for rainmaking.
Now from these facts, we can go ahead and contemplate more theoretical implications of what is going on. Everything from HAARP (video link), to atmospheric conditioning through chem-trails seem to have some merit, but simmer in the more murky waters of conspiracy-theory. Yet it does stand to reason that the frontier of this technology exists beyond what is public knowledge today. Many of these theories, even if not proven, are indeed plausible.
Now, this is not to say that I buy into all these conspiracy theories entirely either. I just think we have to consider some possibilities here.
In my own experience, for example, I can remember that when I was a kid overcast days were pretty rare. And even on days that were overcast, that ceiling seemed lower, less upper-atmospheric, more likely to wind up with some rain or snow at some point. Today, it seems like more days than not, no matter what season, we have a film of overcast that can last for days. Not quite sunny, not quite cloudy. It takes on a slight rusty pollution hue too, and then maybe squeezes out a few sprinkles of rain, rather than an actual shower. Almost as if the atmosphere itself is sweating, rather than passing along a refreshing shower. And then everything on the ground is coated in a strange "grease."
I first noticed it on my car windshield. No matter what I cleaned it with, there was this greasy film on the glass that would just not go away, and was worst after one of these sprinkling rain events when the atmosphere was heavy and stifling.
Meh, anyway, just a few personal observations. It just feels like something is not quite right in the air, in the water. how I breathe, what the sky looks like. Things people might not regularly pay attention to in the modern day with their busy lives.
Like I said, I don't buy into every theory that comes down the pike, and I am not exactly sure what might be happening, but something is different, and it doesn't feel right. Natural climate change? Human pollution without any real agenda? Perhaps. But we should consider all of the evidence just the same.
