“The Committee continues to support the Department’s funding for colleges and universities to examine and evaluate earth system models and validate their ability to reproduce earth systems. The Committee is aware of limitations in the ability to understand and predict earth systems behavior posed by uncertainties in interactions between clouds, aerosols, and climate, an area of research highlighted as a priority by the National Climate Assessment with implications for weather prediction, infrastructure planning, and national security.”
“..Reducing uncertainty in understanding cloud aerosol effects requires investment in new techniques such as controlled experiments along with observational studies, modeling and computing. The Committee recommends $15,000,000 for cloud-aerosol research, technology innovation and computing..”

NOVEMBER 1960: “The technological Basis for the Reexamination of the Feasibility of Climate Control”
“Technological developments of the past two decades have provided the understanding, the techniques, and the means necessary for an assault on the problems of climate control. Control of any kind requires capabilities in all these areas. Meteorology is just now beginning to acquire such capabilities.” -P.5 Link

The Future of the Global Weather Enterprise
“The enterprise includes the full value chain of scientific research, observations of the Earth system, numerical models encoding the laws of physics applied to the system, supercomputing to integrate the models and observations, weather and hydrological forecasts from hours to weeks and potentially months ahead, and business-specific products and services enabling economic benefit and jobs to be created.” Link
October 31, 2005 – U.S. Military Wants to Own the Weather
“..Thunderbolts on demand – What would a military strategist gain in having an “on-switch” to the weather?”
“Clearly, it offers the ability to degrade the effectiveness of enemy forces. That could come from flooding an opponent’s encampment or airfield to generating downright downpours that disrupt enemy troop comfort levels. On the flipside, sparking a drought that cuts off fresh water can stir up morale problems for warfighting foes.
Even fooling around with fog and clouds can deny or create concealment – whichever weather manipulation does the needed job.
In this regard, nanotechnology could be utilized to create clouds of tiny smart particles. Atmospherically buoyant, these ultra-small computer particles could navigate themselves to block optical sensors. Alternatively, they might be used to provide an atmospheric electrical potential difference — a way to precisely aim and time lightning strikes over the enemy’s head – thereby concoct thunderbolts on demand..”
July 1968 | How to Wreck the Environment
“Among future means of obtaining national objectives by force, one possibility hinges on man’s ability to control and manipulate the environment of his planet. When achieved, this power over his environment will provide man with a new force capable of doing great and indiscriminate damage. Our present primitive understanding of deliberate environmental change makes it difficult to imagine a world in which geophysical warfare is practised. Such a world might be one in which nuclear weapons were effectively banned and the weapons of mass destruction were those of environmental catastrophe.
Alternatively, I can envisage a world of nuclear stability resulting from parity in such weapons, rendered unstable by the development by one nation of an advanced technology capable of modifying the Earth’s environment. Or geophysical weapons may be part of each nation’s armoury. As I will argue, these weapons are peculiarly suited for covert or secret wars.”

“In this Review, we aim to reveal an unrecognised source of causality leading to increases in combustibility, intensity, and the extent of California, United States of America wildfires, and the concomitant harm to human and environmental health. We review literature, including scientific and medical, and evidence, including photographic, of near-daily, near-global jet-spraying particulates in the atmosphere as related to wildfires. We review the evidence that atmospheric manipulation utilising aerosolised coal fly ash is a primary factor in the extent and severity of forest fires in California and elsewhere; adverse effects include exacerbation of drought, tree and vegetation die-off and desiccation, and unnaturally heating the atmosphere and surface regions of Earth. Forest combustibility is increased by moisture-absorbing aerosolised particles that damage the waxy coatings of leaves and needles, reducing their tolerance to drought. The aerial climate manipulation using coal fly ash greatly increases the potential for forest fire ignition by lightening. Wildfires dramatically worsen baseline air pollution, emitting harmful gases and volatile organic compounds, and they both concentrate and re-emit toxic elements and radioactive nuclides over a wide area. The type of air pollution created by wildfires is associated with increased all-cause mortality, with the greatest impact on respiratory and cardiovascular disease. Studies have shown that aerosolised coal fly ash is an important risk factor for chronic lung disease, lung cancer and neurodegenerative disease. Failure to recognise multifold adverse consequences of jet-spraying particulates into the atmosphere, we submit, will continue the progression of ever-accelerating ecological disasters.”

The Geoengineering Act prohibits deployment of harmful contaminants in our atmosphere and at ground level.
(a) To preserve the safe, peaceful uses of Rhode Island’s atmosphere for people, the environment, and agriculture, by regulating geoengineering, weather modification and other large- scale activities and prohibiting activities that are harmful.
(b) “Geoengineering” is defined as the intentional manipulation of the environment, involving nuclear, biological, chemical, electromagnetic and other physical-agent activities that effect changes to the earth’s atmosphere or surface.
(c) The general assembly finds that geoengineering encompasses many technologies and methods involving hazardous activities that can harm human health and safety, the environment, agriculture, aviation, and the economy of the state of Rhode Island.”
