Environmental modification techniques have been available to the US military for more than half a century.
The topic has been widely documented and should be part of the debate on climate change.
Note: There is no evidence of “climate modification” in relation to recent climate disturbances (hurricanes), but at the same time there is no firm evidence that this climate instability is attributable to greenhouse gas emissions.
The broader issue of environmental modification techniques must be carefully addressed and analyzed.
American mathematician John von Neumann, in collaboration with the United States Department of Defense, began his research on weather modification in the late 1940s at the height of the Cold War and envisioned "still unimaginable forms of climate warfare" . During the Vietnam War, cloud seeding techniques were used, beginning in 1967 under the Popeye Project, which aimed to prolong the monsoon season and block enemy supply routes along the Ho Chi Minh Trail.
The US military has developed advanced capabilities that allow it to selectively alter weather patterns. The technology, which was initially developed in the 1990s under the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), was an appendix to the Strategic Defense Initiative - 'Star Wars'. From a military point of view, HAARP - which was officially abolished in 2014 - is a weapon of mass destruction, operating from the outer atmosphere and capable of destabilizing agricultural and ecological systems around the world.
Officially, the HAARP program has been closed at its location in Alaska. The technology of weather modification, shrouded in secrecy, nonetheless prevails. HAARP documents confirm that the technology was fully operational in the mid-1990s.
(For more details see Michel Chossudovsky, The Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction: Possessing Time for Military Use, Global Research).
It should be emphasized that while the US military confirms that weather warfare is fully operational, there is no documented evidence of its military use against enemies of the United States. The subject is taboo among environmental analysts. No in-depth investigation has been conducted to reveal the operational dimensions of the weather warfare.
The irony is that the impacts of ENMOD techniques for military use were documented by CBC TV in the early 1990s.
The CBC TV report acknowledged that the HAARP facilities in Alaska under the auspices of the US Air Force had the ability to fire typhoons, earthquakes, floods and droughts.
Directed energy is such a powerful technology that it could be used to heat the ionosphere to turn the weather into a weapon of war. Imagine using a flood to destroy a city or tornadoes to decimate an approaching army in the desert. The military has spent a great deal of time modifying weather as a concept for battle environments. If an electromagnetic pulse was turned off in a city, basically all the electronic things in your house would flicker on and off, and would be permanently destroyed. "

“It's not just conspiracy theories concerned with HAARP. In January 1999, the European Union considered the project a global concern and passed a resolution asking for more information on its risks to health and the environment.
Despite those concerns, HAARP officials insist the project is nothing more sinister than a radio research facility. Electromagnetic weapons together form an invisible weapon, hundreds of times more powerful than the electric current of lightning. One can fire missiles at enemies in the sky, another could be used to blind soldiers on the battlefield, and another to control a rogue crowd by burning the surface of their skin.
If detonated over a large city, an electromagnetic weapon could destroy all electronics in seconds. They all use directed energy to create a powerful electromagnetic pulse. "
