Hurricane Sandy, Weather Warfare?

Hurricane Sandy was the deadliest and most destructive hurricane of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, as well as the second-costliest hurricane in United States history. Hurricane Sandy was also the largest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded (as measured by diameter with winds spanning 1,100 miles (1,800 km)). The severe and widespread damage the storm caused in the United States, as well as its unusual merge with a frontal system, resulted in the nicknaming of the hurricane by the media and several organizations of the U.S. government “Super-storm Sandy”. I believe that there are too many unusual occurrences and coincidences for me to accept that this storm was a natural creation. Please use website links and navigation panels (particularly list and media) while reading for further information. The list sub section will provide a dot point listing of all Hurricane Sandy unusual occurrences and coincidences, all are sourced.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Sandy

Sandy developed from a tropical wave in the western Caribbean Sea on October 22, quickly strengthened, and was upgraded to Tropical Storm Sandy six hours later. As the storm reached the North American coastline, the storm begins to curve with the coastline of North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida, rather than following a direct path (Please refer to images on the track of Hurricane Sandy that are provided). The storm then changes direction and heads west towards New Jersey and Philadelphia.

Before making landfall in New Jersey, the storm accelerated to a forward motion of nearly 30 mph.

“While not as much of a speed demon, Sandy did accelerate to a forward motion of nearly 30 mph as it curved west and approached New Jersey.” - http://www2.ucar.edu/atmosnews/opinion/8243/hybridization-sandy

The storm also intensified before it made landfall.

“Unusually warm sea surface temperatures and interactions between Sandy’s circulation and an existing low pressure system caused the storm to intensify just as it made landfall. Its path through southern New Jersey produced the worst possible setup for New York City, with 80-100 mph southeast winds pushing water into Manhattan.” – https://helix.northwestern.edu/blog/2012/12/hurricane-sandy-frankenstorm

Speeding up and intensifying before making landfall in New Jersey “produced the worst possible setup for New York City”.

When the storm reached Philadelphia it made a ninety degree turn, rather than going inland, heading through the western parts of New York and then up the east coast through Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec and New Brunswick. As a result, Sandy hit the most populated areas of the east coast and also it circled the business capital of the United States, New York City. Circling New York is the same as hitting it head on and if the United States was the subject of an attack, New York would be one of the primary targets (note September 11, 2001).

Hurricane Sandy’s devastating storm track is a rare one among hurricanes. The track of the storm — which took an unusual left-hand turn in the Atlantic before slamming into the East Coast — has an average probability of happening only once every 700 years. “The particular shape of Sandy’s trajectory is very peculiar, and that’s very rare, on the order of once every 700 years,” said Timothy Hall, a senior scientist at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies. That means that in any particular year, the chance of such a storm track happening is 0.0014 percent. Source – Hurricane Sandy Was 1-in-700-Year Event: http://news.yahoo.com/hurricane-sandy-1-700-event-182934012.html

No other Atlantic hurricane of equal or greater strength has hit land at an angle anywhere near as perpendicular as Sandy, whose path was off by just 17 degrees from making a right angle with the coast. - http://blogs.agu.org/geospace/2013/06/03/hurricane-sandy-took-highly-unusual-path-but-climate-change-doesnt-get-the-blame-yet/

Sandy’s track was the most perpendicular to the Atlantic Coast of any storm on record”.http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/09/130902-hurricanes-climate-change-superstorm-sandy-global-warming-storms-science-weather/

In elementary geometry, the word perpendicular describes the relationship between two geometric objects that meet at a right angle.

An article by Amy Ellis Nutt and Stephen Stirling states:  http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2012/11/experts_argue_global_warmings.html

It wasn’t supposed to happen. That’s what the weather experts kept saying immediately before, during and after Sandy smacked New Jersey in the face. Not this far north, they said, not in autumn, and certainly not this bad.

An article by Dr. Jeff Masters states (Weather Underground): http://www.wunderground.com/blog/JeffMasters/comment.html?entrynum=2283

“We’re used to seeing hurricane-battered beaches and flooded cities in Florida, North Carolina, and the Gulf Coast. But to see these images from the Jersey Shore and New York City in the wake of Hurricane Sandy is a shocking experience. New Jersey only rarely gets hit by hurricanes because it lies in a portion of the coast that doesn’t stick out much, and is too far north. How did this happen? How was a hurricane able to move from southeast to northwest at landfall, so far north, and so late in hurricane season? We expect hurricanes to move from east to west in the tropics, where the prevailing trade winds blow that direction. But the prevailing wind direction reverses at mid-latitudes, flowing predominately west-to-east, due to the spin of the Earth. Hurricanes that penetrate to about Florida’s latitude usually get caught up in these westerly winds, and are whisked northeastwards, out to sea.”

Hurricane Sandy and the Climate Connection also confirms what Dr Jeff Masters states in the previous source (Skeptical Science): http://www.skepticalscience.com/hurricane-sandy-climate-connection.html

“Hurricane Sandy was an unprecedented storm in modern times, arriving late in the hurricane season, making landfall abnormally far to the north on the US east coast.”

You would think that the largest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded would hit in peak period? How did it get so far north?

An article by Spencer Platt states: http://realtruth.org/articles/121027-001.html

“Normally, when hurricanes approach the East Coast from Sandy’s angle, they are pulled safely out to sea by a semi-permanent low-pressure center near Iceland. This time around, that low pressure isn’t there. In fact, it’s been replaced by a high pressure so intense it only occurs approximately 0.2% of the time on average. The coincidence of that strong of a high pressure ‘block’ being in place just when a hurricane is passing by—in and of itself a very rare occurrence—is just mind bogglingly rare. It’s the kind of stuff that’s important enough to rewrite meteorological textbooks. The result, instead of heading out to sea Sandy’s full force will be turned back against the grain and directed squarely at the East Coast.”

Sandy also had the biggest storm surge ever seen.

Sandy lives up to the hype (Live Science): http://www.livescience.com/24433-hurricane-sandy-predictions.html

“The 13-foot (3.9 meters) waves at the Battery Park in lower Manhattan crushed the 1821 record for storm-surge height there. In the days before the storm, the National Weather Service predicted record surges and flooding in the New York and New Jersey region, with peak levels of 11 to 13 feet (3 to 4 m) at the Battery.”

The record storm surge can be explained by the following factors.

Risks of Hurricane Sandy-like Surge Events Rising (Climate Central): http://www.climatecentral.org/news/hurricane-sandy-unprecedented-in-historical-record-study-says-15505

“The impact angle of Hurricane Sandy was its most unusual feature, ensuring the storm surge would case maximum damage, Hall said. The storm’s left-hand turn put the most dangerous right-front quadrant on top of New Jersey and southeastern New York, pummeling these areas with an historic storm surge and record high waves. That, combined with astronomical high tides, led to record storm tide levels.”

Also, Sandy made landfall just when a full moon was brightening the sky. The moons gravity pulls on earths water, fractionally lifting the surface towards itself. Oceans bulge towards the moon to generate two oceanic tides per day. During a full moon, the moons gravity can align with that of the sun to produce particularly high tides. The full moon during the storm put an extra 6 feet onto the sea level, which was another contributing factor to the record storm surge. If Hurricane Sandy was an attack on the east coast of the United States, whoever was responsible picked the perfect time to attack. (Source – Hurricane Sandy – What Really Happened (Documentary) – 37:40)

On October 25th, the National Weather Service accurately predicted Hurricane Sandy would make landfall in southeastern New Jersey four days prior to actually making landfall.This is the same day that Hurricane Sandy was dubbed “Frankenstorm” by NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) (Source – How Sandy was dubbed “Frankenstorm” – CNN). If you remember the story of “Frankenstein”, Frankenstein was put together with different body parts and struck by lightning to give him life. Frankenstein was manufactured. If Hurricane Sandy was labeled Frankenstorm, maybe Sandy was manufactured also? Is this the correlation between Frankenstein and Frankenstorm? Conspiracy or coincidence? It is also very coincidental that Hurricane Sandy was dubbed Frankenstorm the same day the National Weather Service predicted the storm would make landfall in New Jersey. Apparently, the European weather models were very accurate in predicting what Hurricane Sandy would do ahead of time. How accurate were the models exactly? Hurricane Sandy sped up and intensified just before New Jersey (as sourced earlier in the post), just before the major catastrophe of the storm. Did they predict that Sandy would speed up and intensify just before hitting New Jersey? (Source – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Sandy – Forecasts).

There are so many aspects of Sandy that coincide with landfall.

Was the National Weather Service aware that so many aspects of the storm would coincide with landfall when they predicted Hurricane Sandy would make landfall in New Jersey and when Hurricane Sandy was labeled “Frankenstorm”, four days prior to making landfall?

Is this a freak set of unusual occurrences and coincidences, or was Hurricane Sandy an attack on the east coast of the United States?

Hours after Super-storm Sandy howled its way through the East Coast, unleashing a fatal trail of destruction, global reactions included outpouring of sympathy and support. In Syria however, pro-government supporters welcomed the super-storm, claiming the natural disaster is the result of high-tech secret Iranian engineering. (Source - http://edition.cnn.com/2012/10/31/world/meast/syria-sandy-facebook-claim/ & http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/31/syrian-supporters-claim-iran-technology-behind-hurricane-sandy_n_2049879.html).

CNN Source, Pro-government group “News Network” of the Syrian Armed Forces stated on a Facebook posting:

“Sources confirmed to us that Hurricane Sandy that is slamming the U.S. was set off by highly advanced technologies developed by the heroic Iranian regime that supports the resistance, with coordination of our resistive Syrian regime,”

“This is the punishment for whoever dares to attack Syria’s (Bashar) al-Assad and threaten peace and stability.”

Comments accompanying the post, which had more than 300 likes, ranged from derision to support. Was Hurricane Sandy another attack on the city of New York? (note September 11, 2001).

After looking at Sandy, I focused my attention on searching for weather anomalies by looking through historical storm data over the last 10 years.

On March 28th 2004 the “Nameless Hurricane” (also known as Cyclone Catarina) crashed into the coast of Brazil. The storm damaged around 40,000 homes and destroyed 1500; 40% of the rice crop were also lost. Total damages were estimated at $400 million USD. It also killed at least three and injured at least 75. At least 2,000 people were left homeless following the storm.

NASA Science: “The Nameless Hurricane” - http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2004/02apr_hurricane/

Cyclone Catarina was the first-ever hurricane formed in the South Atlantic. Meteorologists were left scratching their heads in bewilderment as the familiar swirl of clouds, complete with a well-defined eye, appeared in an oceanic basin where none had been spotted before. NASA hurricane researcher Robbie Hood stated that “this really caught everybody off guard, hurricanes aren’t supposed to be in that part of the world”.

Typically, tropical cyclones do not form in the South Atlantic Ocean, due to strong upper level shear, cool water temperatures, and the lack of a convergence zone of convection. While Catarina formed in an unusual area, its relation to global warming or any other type of global climatic change is still up for debate. The Brazilian Society of Meteorology attributed it to “climatic changes and atmospheric anomalies”, while other researchers have indicated that it could be the result of the Southern Annular Mode or other seasonal variations in weather within the Southern Hemisphere, again linked to global changes in climate. However, more research in the area is still needed to make a conclusion. Hurricanes are never spotted in this part of the world. Have researchers considered Cyclone Catarina to be the result of weather modification?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclone_Catarina

 The image below is the path of Cyclone Catarina. Note that the path of Catarina is also unusual.

The 2005 Atlantic hurricane season was another recent unusual weather event that should be noted, as it was the most active Atlantic hurricane season in recorded history, shattering numerous records and was also the year that Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana, the most deadliest Hurricane to hit the United States since 1928, resulting in the death of 1833 people. There were 28 named storms in the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season (storms with sustained winds of at least 39 miles per hour). In addition, there were an unprecedented 14 hurricanes, of which seven were major hurricanes (Category 3 or better on the Saffir-Simpson Scale). Three category 5 storms (sustained winds of 156 miles per hour or more) formed in the Atlantic Basin for the first time in a single season (Katrina, Rita, and Wilma). Four major hurricanes and three tropical storms made landfall in the United States, with an eighth storm (Ophelia) brushing the North Carolina coast.

Note the National Hurricane Center (NHC) predictions versus the actual number of storms for each hurricane season from 2002-2012 on the image below. Pay special attention to the 2005 season (11-15 storms predicted, 28 storms in total).

Weather warfare is the use of weather control techniques for military purposes. As a quick introduction to the website and an introduction to weather warfare in general, I would like to provide readers a documentary to watch by the History Channel, That’s Impossible – Episode #3, Weather Warfare. The documentary explains that the power to use tornado’s, hurricanes and the deadliest weather as weapons of war may now be possible. The documentary investigates reports that weather weapons are in development and reveal the technology that, in the future, could turn hurricanes, earthquakes and even tsunamis into some of the most powerful and plausibly deniable weapons of mass destruction the world has ever seen.

What is Weather Modification?

Weather modification is the act of intentionally manipulating or altering the weather. The most common form of weather modification is cloud seeding to increase rain or snow, usually for the purpose of increasing the local water supply. Weather modification can also have the goal of preventing damaging weather, such as hail or hurricanes, from occurring; or of provoking damaging weather against an enemy or rival, as a tactic of military or economic warfare.

Humans have long sought to purposefully alter such atmospheric phenomena as clouds, rain, snow, hail, lightning, thunderstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, and cyclones. Magical and religious practices to control the weather are attested in a variety of cultures, thousands of years before the modern era.

Weather Modification : Britannica

The modern era of scientific weather modification began in 1946 with work by Vincent J. Schaefer and Irving Langmuir at the General Electric Research Laboratories in Schenectady, New York. Schaefer discovered that when dry ice (frozen carbon dioxide) pellets were dropped into a cloud composed of water droplets in a deep-freeze box, the droplets were rapidly replaced by ice crystals, which increased in size and then fell to the bottom of the box. The Schaefer-Langmuir experiments demonstrated that so-called supercooled clouds, namely those composed of water droplets at temperatures below freezing, could be dissipated. When the supercooled clouds were seeded with grains of dry ice, ice crystals formed and grew large enough to fall out of the clouds. The term used to define this method of weather modification is called cloud seeding.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_seeding

Further studies found that certain substances other than dry ice can be used to seed clouds. For example, when silver iodide and lead iodide are burned, they create a smoke of tiny particles. These particles produce ice crystals in supercooled clouds below temperatures of about −5° C as the supercooled cloud droplets evaporate. The water vapor is then free to deposit onto the silver iodide or lead iodide crystals. Although many other materials can cause ice crystals to form, the above-mentioned are the most widely used. For the most part, dry ice is dispersed from airplanes, but silver iodide nuclei may be generated on the ground and carried upward by air currents, introduced from airplanes, or produced by pyrotechnic devices such as rockets or exploding artillery shells. Other documented cloud seeding substances include the use of aluminum oxide and barium.

Since the cloud seeding breakthroughs of the 1950s, other methods of manipulating the weather have been researched and applied. These include; fog dissipation, modifying the electricity in clouds, hail suppression, modifying the severity of storms and hurricanes, attempting to control storms and hurricanes. For the purposes of this website I will focus on military applications of weather modification which have been documented.

The first attempt to modify a hurricane began on October 13, 1947. This attempt was code named Project Cirrus. Project Cirrus was a collaboration of the General Electric Corporation, the US Army Signal Corps, the Office of Naval Research, and the US Air Force. An airplane flew along the rain bands of the hurricane, and dropped nearly 180 pounds (82 kilograms) of crushed dry ice into the clouds. The hurricane changed direction and made landfall near Savannah, Georgia. The public blamed the seeding on the United States government. Cirrus was canceled and lawsuits were threatened. This disaster set back the cause of seeding hurricanes for eleven years.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Stormfury#Project_Cirrus

Operation Cumulus was the first military cloud seeding project run by the UK government. This operation was undertaken in the 1950s. The UK government wanted to investigate the advantages of weather manipulation for military purposes. The Royal Air Force (RAF) started to experiment with cloud seeding which involved pouring several different catalysts over clouds to induce heavy rains. The findings of this operation showed that cloud seeding provided the advantage of bogging down enemy movement and incrementing the water flow in rivers and streams to hinder or stop enemy crossings.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Cumulus

In the 1960s, Project Stormfury was enacted by the the United States Government as an attempt to weaken tropical cyclones by flying aircraft into them and seeding them with silver iodine. The hypothesis was that the silver iodide would cause supercooled water in the storm to freeze, disrupting the inner structure of the hurricane. This led to the seeding of several Atlantic hurricanes. However, it was later shown that this hypothesis was incorrect. In reality, it was determined most hurricanes do not contain enough supercooled water for cloud seeding to be effective.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Stormfury

Operation Popeye (also known as Project Popeye), was a US military cloud seeding operation during the Vietnam War, running from March 20, 1967 until July 5, 1972, which was intended to extend the monsoon season over Laos, specifically in areas of the Ho Chi Minh Trail. The military seeded clouds with silver iodide, resulting in the targeted areas seeing an extension of the monsoon period an average of 30 to 45 days. The objective of Operation Popeye was to increase rainfall in carefully selected areas to deny the Vietnamese enemy, namely military supply trucks, the use of roads by; softening road surface, causing landslides along roadways, washing out river crossings and maintaining saturated soil conditions beyond the normal time span. The operation was considered relatively successful. The 54th Weather Reconnaissance Squadron carried out the operation to “make mud, not war.”

Operation Popeye : Wikipedia

Operation Popeye – Short Documentary

In 1976, one year after the Vietnam War, a treaty was signed in Geneva, Convention on the Prohibition of Military or any Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques. The treaty prohibits the hostile use of environmental modification techniques. I find it very difficult to find evidence of the use of weather modification for military purposes after that date because of the United Nations restrictions, however, there is enough evidence to substantiate that countries are continually advancing in this field.

The following statements are not clear proof of the existence of weather modification technology, but should be enough for us to begin questioning weather related disasters. Please refer to the “quotes” and “documents” sub section of this website for further evidence of the existence of advanced techniques which modify the weather.

Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025 – (Research paper presented to the United States Air Force)

“Weather modification offers the war fighter a wide range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary… Weather modification will become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally… It could have offensive and defensive applications and even be used for deterrence purposes. The ability to generate precipitation, fog and storms on earth or to modify space weather… and the production of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of military technologies.”

In April 1997, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen stated in a United States Department of Defense news briefing that: (Source: Department of Defense News Briefing: Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen)

“Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.”

Marc Filterman, a former French military officer, outlines several types of “unconventional weapons” using radio frequencies. He refers to “weather war,” indicating that the U.S. and the Soviet Union had already:

“mastered the know-how needed to unleash sudden climate changes (hurricanes, drought) in the early 1980s.”(3) These technologies make it “possible to trigger atmospheric disturbances by using Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) radar [waves].”

Sourced: (Marc Filterman, Intelligence Newsletter, (December 16, 1999) (http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO201A.html)

The last documented manipulation of weather for military purposes was conducted forty years ago (Operation Popeye) and the calculator on my desk is faster than the computers that existed back then. What can they do with weather modification now? How far have governments advanced in this field?

Cyclone Evan, a direct attack on Samoa and Fiji?

Severe Tropical Cyclone Evan was considered to be the worst tropical cyclone to affect the island nation of Samoa since Cyclone Ofa in 1990 and Cyclone Val in 1991. The system was first noted on December 9 2012 (one month after Hurricane Sandy), as a weak tropical depression about 700 km (430 mi) to the northeast of Suva, Fiji. Over the next couple of days the depression gradually developed further before it was named Evan on December 12, 2012. The storm moved east and impacted the French islands of Wallis and Futuna before affecting Samoa and American Samoa. The system then slowed down and sat on the Samoan Islands for eighteen hours with wind gusts of up to 210 km/h (130 mph).

“The forward motion slowed upon reaching Samoa, which allowed this intense storm to remain in the general area of these small islands for 12-18 hours. This in turn kept very strong gusty winds, flooding rainfall, and pounding surf effecting these islands.” – Tropical Cyclone Activity Report – Pacific / Indian Oceans

After circling Samoa, Evan turned back and headed towards Fiji.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclone_Evan

On December 16, Evan paralleled the western areas of Fiji. Upon passing over Fiji, over 8,000 people were living in shelters, including many tourists. Although there were no initial reports of casualties, the storm brought considerable damage. Trees and power lines were down across the island group. In addition, flooding and structural damage was reported from resorts and homes. Damage throughout Fiji amounted to FJ$169.9 million (US$108.8 million). Additionally, short-term economic losses related to the cyclone were estimated reach FJ$73.4 million (US$40.9 million).

The track of Cyclone Evan – (Source: The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs)

When the storm hit the islands of Samoa, it strangely circles the Samoan island of Upolu and slows down for an eighteen hour stay (Source: Tropical Cyclone Activity Report – Pacific / Indian Oceans & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclone_Evan). For this reason, Cyclone Evan was considered to be the worst tropical cyclone to affect the island nation of Samoa since Cyclone Val in 1991. Also, note that here is almost nothing but ocean for 1000 kilometers. It is very unusual that the storm slowed down and circled the Samoan Islands.

After the storm circles the Samoan Islands (a category 3 cyclone) it seems to target the most populated island group in the region, the Fijian Islands, 1000 kilometers away. When Evan finally reaches Fiji it intensifies to its highest peak, a category five cyclone. Note the changes in storm intensity on the source below from Australian Severe Weather.

http://www.australiasevereweather.com/tropical_cyclones/2012_2013/oper/tropical_cyclone_evan.htm

Below is an article from the Sydney Morning Herald labeled “Eye of the Storm”. The document further confirms the changes in storm intensity. Note at which point Cyclone Evan hits category 4 & 5, the Fijian Islands.

Newspaper Article – Eye of the Storm – Tuesday, December 18th 2012, Sydney Morning Herald

Cyclone Evan Track

Cyclone Evan looks to me like an attack storm. If you look at Cyclone Evan on the oceanic map below you will realize how unbelievable and questionable the storm really is.

Oceanic Map – Please note the islands of Samoa and Fiji and the fact that they are 1100 kilometers apart. Also note that Samoa, Fiji and Tonga are the most populated island groups in the area, disregard the others. Draw the track of the storm on the Oceanic Map. Compare the distance between Samoa and Fiji to somewhere in the world that you are familiar with. What are the odds of a storm with a path like this? What are the odds of the storm slowing down on Samoa and then circling Samoa? What are the odds of the storm hitting its highest peak (category 5) on Fiji after slowing down and circling Samoa?

To get a further understanding of why I believe this storm is an attack, read and compare the following to somewhere in the world your familiar with (Samoa and Fiji are 1000km apart).

  • Cyclone Evan is like a cyclone starting out in Pittsburgh, moving towards Ottowa and then slowing down and circling Ottowa at category 3 intensity and then moving towards and hitting Washington DC at category 5 intensity.
  • Cyclone Evan is like a cyclone starting out in Bourke, moving towards Brisbane then slowing down and circling Brisbane at category 3 intensity and then moving towards and hitting Sydney at category 5 intensity.
  • Cyclone Evan is like a cyclone starting out in Munich, moving towards London and then slowing down and circling London at category 3 intensity and then moving towards and hitting Berlin at category 5 intensity.

The unbelievable and questionable nature of Cyclone Evan, makes Evan very suspicious and if Evan was manufactured it would be a direct attack on Samoa and Fiji. Is someone testing their weather modification capabilities on Samoa and Fiji? Unfortunately, like Hurricane Sandy, the people effected by Cyclone Evan have no one to blame. The questionable nature of Evan should at very least justify further scientific research and if Evan was manufactured, think about the mentality of the country manufacturing it. What military advantage can be gained by wiping out the island nations of Samoa and Fiji? It is very disturbing that anyone with the power to wield hurricanes and cyclones would wipe out the island nations of Samoa and Fiji.

Weather Modification, why should we be concerned?

The use of weather modification techniques can be highly advantageous on the battlefield, it must be noted however that there are environmental problems associated with the use of these techniques.

The Environmental Modification Convention (ENMOD) is an international treaty prohibiting the military or other hostile use of environmental modification techniques.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ENMOD

The term “environmental modification techniques” refers to any technique for changing – through the deliberate manipulation of natural processes – the dynamics, composition or structure of the Earth, including its biota, lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere, or of outer space. Manipulating the weather is considered an environmental modification technique.

“Environmental warfare is defined as the intentional modification or manipulation of the natural ecology, such as climate and weather, earth systems such as the ionosphere, magnetosphere, tectonic plate system, and/or the triggering of seismic events (earthquakes) to cause intentional physical, economic, and psycho-social, and physical destruction to an intended target geophysical or population location, as part of strategic or tactical war.”

http://www.globalresearch.ca/environmental-modification-techniques-enmod-and-climate-change

The ENMOD treaty is specifically intended to prevent use of the environment as a means of warfare by prohibiting the deliberate manipulation of natural processes in order to protect the environment because these modifications could produce phenomena such as hurricanes, tidal waves or changes in climate.

Convention on the Prohibition of Military or any other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques – United Nations Treaty (Signed in Geneva May 18, 1977)

The treaty created a list of phenomena that could result from the use of environmental modification techniques (this list is sourced from the United Nations Treaty above):

“earthquakes and tsunamis; an upset in the ecological balance of a region; changes in weather patterns (clouds, precipitation, cyclones and tornadic storms); changes in climate patterns; changes in ozone currents; changes in the state of the ozone layer and changes in the state of the ionosphere.”

On February 7th 2013, three months after Hurricane Sandy devastated the New York State area, “Colossal Blizzard Nemo” ripped through the same area of the United States. This resulted in heavy snowfall and hurricane force winds. If Sandy was manufactured, could this phenomena be the result of Hurricane Sandy? Could the Colossal nature of Colossal Blizzard Nemo be further evidence of Hurricane Sandy?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blizzard_of_2013

The problem with the ENMOD treaty is that it prohibits the use but not the research into weather modification. Therefore, it is evident that these modifications are being researched and at very least tested. Are techniques which modify the weather being tested on a regular basis? Where are these techniques being tested? How far have they advanced in this field? To what degree has our climate been effected since the treaty was signed in 1976?

Scientists have been researching the effect of carbon dioxide on climate since the 1960′s and today a consensus position has formed that greenhouse gases are deeply involved in most climate changes and human emissions are bringing serious global warming. The scientific community however, have not officially acknowledged weather modification as a contributor to our climate changing.

I have found a document which was written by NASA. The document is labeled “The Importance of Understanding Clouds” (National Aeronautics and Space Administration). The document explains that clouds regulate the planets average temperature and help to spread the suns energy evenly over the earths surface. The article also quotes:

Even small changes in the abundance or location of clouds could change the climate more than the anticipated changes caused by greenhouse gases, human-produced aerosols, or other factors associated with global change.

There is no doubt that greenhouse gases and human produced aerosols are having a negative effect on our climate, but greenhouse gases and human produced aerosols are not the only factor associated with our climate changing. The above statement suggests that weather modification (changing the abundance and location of clouds) has a great deal more of an effect on climate than greenhouse gases and human produced aerosols. Why isn’t the effect of weather modification considered as a reason for our climate changing?

Lets take a look at the last documented manipulation of weather for military purposes, Operation Popeye. Operation Popeye (Project Popeye), was a US military cloud seeding operation (running from March 20, 1967 until July 5, 1972) during the Vietnam war intended to extend the monsoon season over Laos, specifically in areas of the Ho Chi Minh Trail. The operation seeded clouds with silver iodide, resulting in the targeted areas seeing an extension of the monsoon period an average of 30 to 45 days.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Popeye 

The statement by NASA suggests that even small changes in the abundance or location of clouds can effect climate, what is the effect of extending a single monsoon period for 45 days?

Think about a super-storm like Hurricane Sandy. If small changes in the abundance of clouds can effect climate, what is the effect of a manufactured super-storm? What is the effect of multiple manufactured super-storms?

How much has our climate been effected from the use of weather modification?  How many years have been shaved off the longevity of our planet because of our nature and mentality?

“Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, so that he can add to what he’s been given. But up to now he hasn’t been a creator, only a destroyer. Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wildlife become extinct, the climate’s ruined and the land grows poorer and uglier every day.” – Anton Chekhov

It is important that we expose the capabilities weather modification and start questioning storms. How can we deal with the issue until the capabilities of weather modification are made public? How can we have a treaty on the non-proliferation of weather based weaponry until the capabilities of weather modification are made public? How can we outlaw production of weather based weaponry until the capabilities of weather modification are made public? The issue will become more and more difficult to deal with the longer we wait. As people get smarter, so do the storms.

”Intervention in atmospheric and climatic matters . . . will unfold on a scale difficult to imagine at present. . . . this will merge each nation’s affairs with those of every other, more thoroughly than the threat of a nuclear or any other war would have done.” – John von Neumann

A secret war is being fought which is wreaking havoc and devastation upon those that are unaware. Conflict is upon us on this issue whether we like it or not; but rather than exposing the truth now, the world chooses to ignore and the evidence continues to mount. Meanwhile, weather is being thrown around without any ramifications and the effect of weather modification is damaging our planet. That’s why we should be concerned.

Can facilities like HAARP be used to manipulate the weather?

The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) has generated quite a bit of controversy over its alleged weather control capabilities. Conspiracy theorists have speculated that facilities like HAARP are to blame for a number of weather related disasters. In this post I wish to investigate whether facilities like HAARP have the ability to manipulate the weather in order to ascertain whether there is any credibility to these claims.

The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the University of Alaska, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Wikipedia states that;

“The purpose of HAARP is to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance and the research that is done at the HAARP facility allows the US military to perfect communications with its fleet of submarines by sending radio signals over long distances.”

The HAARP program operates at a major sub-arctic facility, named the HAARP Research Station, on an Air Force–owned site near Gakona, Alaska. The most prominent instrument at the HAARP Station is the Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), a high-power radio frequency transmitter facility operating in the high frequency (HF) band. The IRI is used to temporarily excite a limited area of the Ionosphere.

The HAARP project directs a 3.6 MW signal, in the 2.8–10 MHz region of the HF (high-frequency) band, into the ionosphere. The signal may have been pulsed or continuous.

The acronym HAARP is very popular amongst conspiracy theorists and as a result a large number of people tend to believe that HAARP is the only facility of its kind. The HAARP facility however is not the only facility of its kind. There are quite a number of other ionospheric research facilities around the world. For example;

Mu Radar – is a 1 megawatt facility in Japan (34°51’14.80″N 136° 6’19.45″E).

Arecibo Observatory – is a 2 megawatt facility in Puerto Rico (18°20’38.97″N 66°45’9.77″W).

HIPAS – is a 70 megawatt facility in Fairbanks, Alaska (64°52’21.18″N 146°50’18.78″W).

Sura – is a 190 megawatt facility in central Russia (56° 7’10.32″N 46° 2’4.41″E).

EISCAT – is a 1 gigawatt facility in Tromso, North Norway (69°35’1.06″N 19°12’57.11″E).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EISCAT

As stated, a large number of people tend to believe that HAARP is the only facility of its kind. As a result, many people jump to the conclusion that the United States is to blame when an incident arises that could possibly be caused by facilities like HAARP. A large number of countries are involved in ionospheric research. By comparison, HAARP is claimed to be a mere 3.6 megawatt facility and that’s after it was upgraded in 2006. It has 278 times less maximum power than the ionospheric heater in Norway.

Dr. Bernard Eastlund is the scientist whose name is most associated with the creation and development of the HAARP project. HAARP is based on physicist Bernard J. Eastlund’s U.S. Patent from 1987 titled “Method and Apparatus for Altering a Region in the Earth’s Atmosphere, Ionosphere, and/or Magnetosphere”.

http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=4686605.PN.&OS=PN/4686605&RS=PN/4686605

Eastlund explained in his patent application that by influencing the ionosphere, methods of weather modification are possible.

“Weather modification is possible by, for example, altering upper atmosphere wind patterns or altering solar absorption patterns by constructing one or more plumes of atmospheric particles which will act as a lens or focusing device.”

Eastlund had been working with the Atlantic Richfield Company, holders of a massive reserve of natural gas under Alaska’s North Slope. ARCO bought Eastlund’s first two patents with the understanding that this new technology would make it possible for their natural gas reserves, too expensive to be piped from Alaska, to be converted to electrical energy on the north slope, and then bounced off the heated ionosphere to customers in remote locations around the globe.

Because Eastlund’s “heaters” could elevate the Earth’s ionosphere, his discovery provided the ability to control weather by altering upper atmosphere wind patterns. This is done by focusing high frequency radio transmissions on the ionosphere, lifting and heating it in localized areas which then alters wind patterns and ultimately weather conditions.

The ionosphere is an active electrical shield protecting the planet from the constant bombardment of high-energy particles from space. This conducting plasma, along with Earth’s magnetic field, traps the electrical plasma of space and holds it back from going directly to the earth’s surface. Charles Yost of Dynamic Systems, Leicester, North Carolina states that:

“If the ionosphere is greatly disturbed, the atmospheric conditions below are subsequently disturbed.”

The apparatus for HAARP is a reversal of a radio telescope; an antenna which sends out signals instead of receiving. These powerful radio waves lift 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. Due to the fact that disruptions in the ionosphere have the ability to alter atmospheric conditions, many researchers who study the science behind HAARP have come forward with concerns that the ionospheric related disruptions have had a role to play in weather related disasters. As a result, some consider HAARP to be a new breed of weapon with the capability to alter jet stream routes along with weather patterns.

In April 1997, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen stated in a United States Department of Defense news briefing that: (Source: Department of Defense News Briefing: Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen)

“Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.”

Was the Secretary of Defense referring to the manipulation of the ionosphere by facilities like HAARP when he made this statement?

The following statements were made in a documentary titled Weather Warfare which was put together by the History Channel.

“Directed energy is such a powerful technology it could be used to heat the ionosphere and turn weather into a weapon of war.”

Dr. Brooks Agnew, a scientist and engineer, has researched ELF wave technology for the past 30 years. He also believes HAARP can modify the weather. “If you push the ionosphere out of it’s space, the stratosphere has to move to fill in that gap. When it moves, it can pull the jet stream with it…changing the way water moves through our atmosphere,” he says. “HAARP uses a billion watts. You can easily move a cloud wherever you want it using HAARP,” says Dr. Agnew.

The statements and evidence presented lead me to believe that HAARP based weather modification is possible, but on what scale? Until the capabilities and methods of weather modification are made public, we will never really know to what scale facilities like HAARP manipulate/control the weather and we will never know how 21st century weather modification is possible.
