The biggest rainfall I can remember that had the locals talking for weeks was a 3" rain we got in over a day.
Now days, 3 inches of rain is almost normal, but it drops down in a matter of hours.
4-6" of rain also hit us, and occasionally, even more, causing massive damages and deaths.
Currently, we are frying and dying around here, due to very little rain over the past three weeks while a mere 35 miles away, they're 3+ inches of rain over normal.
I realize the world's weather has changed drastically over the billions of years, but those changes happend gradually over thousands and thousands of years, not in a mere 40 years.
HAARP Boils The Upper AtmosphereIs it true that the Pentagon is using the HAARP facility in Gakona, Alaska to alter the weather and to test it as a possible weapon against those we don't like? Some of OUR money being spent on these experiments are so shrouded in secrecy that even the Congress is kept out of the loop as to what's going on.
HAARP will zap the upper atmosphere with a focused and steerable electromagnetic beam. It is an advanced model of an "ionospheric heater". (The ionosphere is the electrically-charged sphere surrounding Earth's upper atmosphere. It ranges between about 40- to 600 miles above Earth's surface.)
Put simply, the apparatus for HAARP is a reversal of a radio telescope; antennas send out signals instead of receiving. HAARP is the test run for a super-powerful radiowave-beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything -- living and dead.
Press releases and other information from the military on HAARP continually downplay what it could do. Publicity documents insist that the HAARP project is no different than other ionospheric heaters operating safely throughout the world in places such as Arecibo, Puerto Rico; Tromso, Norway and the former Soviet Union. However, a 1990 government document indicates that the radio-frequency (RF) power zap will drive the ionosphere to unnatural activities.
The military says the HAARP system could:
* give the military a tool to replace the electromagnetic pulse effect of atmospheric thermonuclear devices (still considered a viable option by the military through at least 1986).
* replace the huge Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) submarine communication system operating in Michigan and Wisconsin with a new and more compact technology.
* Be used to replace the over-the-horizon radar system that was once planned for the current location of HAARP, with a more flexible and accurate system.
* provide a way to wipe out communications over an extremely large area, while keeping the military's own communications systems working.
* provide a wide area earth-penetrating tomography which, if combined with the computing abilities of EMASS and Cray computers, would make it possible to verify many parts of nuclear nonproliferation and peace agreements.
* be a tool for geophysical probing to find oil, gas and mineral deposits over a large area.
* be used to detect incoming low-level planes and cruise missiles, making other technologies obsolete.
The above abilities seem like a good idea to all who believe in sound national defense, and to those concerned about cost-cutting. However, the possible uses which the HAARP records do not explain, and which can only be found in Air Force, Army, Navy and other federal agency records, are alarming. Moreover, effects from the reckless use of these power levels in our natural shield - the ionosphere - could be cataclysmic according to some scientists.
Two Alaskans put it bluntly. A founder of the NO HAARP movement, Clare Zickuhr, says "The military is going to give the ionosphere a big kick and see what happens."
The military failed to tell the public that they do not know what exactly will happen, but a Penn State science article brags about that uncertainty. Macho science? The HAARP project uses the largest energy levels yet played with by what Begich and Manning call "the big boys with their new toys". It is an experiment on the sky, and experiments are done to find out something not already known. Independent scientists told Begich and Manning that a HAARP-type "skybuster" with its unforeseen effects could be an act of global vandalism.
The military has had about twenty years to work on weather warfare methods, which it euphemistically calls weather modification. For example, rainmaking technology was taken for a few test rides in Vietnam. The U.S. Department of Defense sampled lightning and hurricane manipulation studies in Project Skyfire and Project Stormfury. And they looked at some complicated technologies that would give big effects. Angels Don't Play This HAARP cites an expert who says the military studied both lasers and chemicals which they figured could damage the ozone layer over an enemy. Looking at ways to cause earthquakes, as well as to detect them, was part of the project named Prime Argus, decades ago. The money for that came from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA, now under the acronym ARPA.)
In 1994 the Air Force revealed its Spacecast 2020 master plan which includes weather control. Scientists have experimented with weather control since the 1940's, but Spacecast 2020 noted that "using environmental modification techniques to destroy, damage or injure another state are prohibited". Having said that, the Air Force claimed that advances in technology "compels a reexamination of this sensitive and potentially risky topic."
Whether or not this is true is for you to decide, but I know that the last couple of years, weather, at least in the greater MidWest of the USA, has been alternating back and forth between extremes. One part of a state will be experiencing drought, while another will get massive rainfalls, like the 20+" that deluded Nashville, TN earlier this year. The 10+" in less than three hours that flooded out that Arkansas campground with tragic results and others, like the 10 or so of rain St. Louis, Mo got a few days ago in a matter of hours.
Rainfall amounts of 5 inches to over 20 inches in a matter of hours or a day or two don't naturally happen in the USA MidWest.
If you've watched the radar loop during one of these soakers, you'll see the thunderstorm acting like it's stuck, repeatedly firing over and over one area of land.
This type of rainfall is unheard of unless you're living in the Amazon.
Is the Pentagon playing with its big toy in Alaska, training it on parts of the USA, to see what will happen?
Controlling the world's weather isn't the only part of the Gakona facility.
The following statement was made more than twenty-five years ago, in a book by CFR and Bilderberg member Zbigniew Brzezinski which he wrote while a professor at Columbia University:
"Political strategists are tempted to exploit research on the brain and human behavior. Geophysicist Gordon J. F.MacDonald -- specialist in problems of warfare -- says accurately-timed, artificially-excited electronic strokes 'could lead to a pattern of oscillations that produce relatively high power levels over certain regions of the earth...In this way, one could develop a system that would seriously impair the brain performance of very large populations in selected regions over an extended period'...No matter how deeply disturbing the thought of using the environment to manipulate behavior for national advantages , to some, the technology permitting such use will very probably develop within the next few decades."A dictator's wet dream come true, massive manipulation of their slaves minds thru invisible rays.
As early as 1970, Brzezinski predicted a "more controlled and directed society" would gradually appear, linked to technology. This society would be dominated by an elite group which impresses voters by allegedly superior scientific know-how. Angels Don't Play This HAARP further quotes Brzezinski:
"Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control. Technical and scientific momentum would then feed on the situation it exploits", Brzezinski predicted.
If you scoff at this, then please tell me the last truthful statement made to the USA by its government?
Climatologist Joe Chanik has simulated hurricane control based on selective heating and cooling (or prevention of evaporation). Futurist John Smart has discussed the potential for weather control via space-based solar power networks. One proposal involves the gentle heating via microwave of portions of large hurricanes. Such chaotic systems may be susceptible to "side steering" with a few degrees of increased temperature/pressure at critical points. A sufficient network might keep the largest and most potentially damaging hurricanes from landfall, at the request of host nations. Blizzards, monsoons, and other extreme weather are also potential candidates for space-based amelioration. If large-scale weather control were to become feasible, potential implications may include:
* Unintended side effects, especially given the chaotic nature of weather development
* Damage to existing ecosystems
* Health risks to humans
* Equipment malfunction or accidents
* Non-democratic control or use as a weapon
* ELF hot spots causing slightly accelerated ionospheric depletion by solar wind
For the 2008 Olympics, China had 30 airplanes, 4,000 rocket launchers, and 7,000 anti-aircraft guns to stop rain. Each system would shoot various chemicals into any threatening clouds to shrink rain drops before they reach the stadium.
August is a rainy time of year for Beijing, which is not the best news for Olympic organizers. More than seven inches of rain fall on average during the month, making it the second rainiest month of the year behind July, which gets more than 8 inches of rain on average.How did this experiment work?
Chinese meteorologists claim that the weather manipulation rockets were highly effective ahead of the opening ceremony on Friday, keeping the skies clear and audience dry inside the main Olympic National Stadium (a.k.a. "The Birds Nest").
"We fired a total of 1,104 rain dispersal rockets from 21 sites in the city between 4 p.m. and 11:39 p.m. on Friday, which successfully intercepted a stretch of rain belt from moving towards the stadium" – Guo Hu, Beijing Municipal Meteorological Bureau (BMB).
