August 1996


Some Excerpts:

Page 15: "If this UAV technology were combined with stealth and carbon dust technologies, the result could be a UAV aircraft invisible to radar while en route to the targeted area, which could spontaneously create carbon dust in any location".

Page 19: " One area of storm research that would significantly benefit military operations is lighning modification. Most research efforts that would significantly benefit military operations is in lightning modification. Most research efforts are being conducted to develop techniques to lessen the occurrence or hazards associated with lightning. This is important research for military operations and resource protection, but some offensive military benefit could be obtained by doing research on increasing the potential and intensity of lightning. Concepts to explore include increasing the basic efficiency of the thunderstorm, stimulating the triggering mechanism that initiates the bolt, and triggering lightning such as that which struck Apollo 12 in 1968. Possible mechanisms to investigate would be ways to modify the electropotential characteristics over certain targets to induce lightning strikes on the desired targets as the storm passes over their location".

Here's an Air Force PDF version of the document.


My take on the weather modification document:

This document is a good primer on the subject of weather modification. It lays out general topics associated to weather modification's advantages, disadvantages. The report is unclassified, and dated to 1996, and so it is possible that what is being portrayed as a future possibility had in fact already been achieved at least a decade before its publication. I have argued in past postings that not only does the U.S. possess the ability to trigger lightning, but to precisely target it. I've also asked if thunder makes it rain?

One day nineteen years from now (2025) we may discover that the United States has magically obtained the ability to modify the weather. Then again maybe it will take a covert program using science & technology several decades to provide that capability. If the latter is true we would very likely be living in one of those decades in which weather is being covertly modified.

Someone else was able to control the weather a long time before anyone could today:

And on that day, when evening had fallen, he said to them: “Let us cross to the other shore.” So, after they had dismissed the crowd, they took him in the boat, just as he was, and there were other boats with him. Now a great violent windstorm broke out, and the waves kept dashing into the boat, so that the boat was close to being swamped. But he was in the stern, sleeping upon a pillow. So they woke him up and said to him: “Teacher, do you not care that we are about to perish?” With that he roused himself and rebuked the wind and said to the sea: “Hush! Be quiet!” And the wind abated, and a great calm set in. So he said to them: “Why are YOU fainthearted? Do YOU not yet have any faith?” But they felt an unusual fear, and they would say to one another: “Who really is this, because even the wind and the sea obey him?”

Mark 4:35-41

Prometheus was sorry for mankind and he went to Zeus and asked him if he might have some sacred fire for his poor creatures.

But Zeus said no, fire belonged to the gods alone.

Prometheus could not bear to see his people suffer and he decided to steal fire, though he knew that Zeus would punish him severely. No longer did men shiver in the cold of the night, and the beasts feared the light of fire and did not dare attack them.

Cast in unbreakable irons, Prometheus was chained to the top of the Caucasus Mountains. Every day an eagle swooped out of the sky and ate his liver.

Although Anonymous 11:18 PM,

I like the quote from Mark even better, but I can't help but feel that it is time for God's children to assume control, and responsibility for that control of weather, and climate.

I know, GOD, that mere mortals

can't run their own lives,

That men and women

don't have what it takes to take charge of life.

Jer. 10:23 from the Message Translation.

So one can reason if we do not have what it takes to take charge of our own lives, what business do we have controlling the weather?

I know you are having fun with the photos of AJ but I must have saw the post before you did all that. It was much better wihout those photos.

Davey Jones,

I deleted the AJ photos per your recommendation.

YOu were right.
