Is someone —
or a group of someones — fooling around with the weather?
EXCLUSIVE TO THE SPOTLIGHT
DONN GRAND PRE
. . ."The
extreme weather of the last two years in North America is part
of a worldwide pattern, scientists say, and they are searching
hard for an explanation."
. . .That was the lead on an article
by William K Stevens (New York Times
Service, June 23) concerning the devastating onslaught of "a
global pattern of sharper climatic swings over about the last
. . .Stevens tells us that the average
winter course of the North American jet stream, along which storms
develop, has recently shifted from a relatively straight west-to-east
path across the continent to a more curved one that dips south
from the Pacific Northwest into the central part of the country
and then turns upward through the Middle Atlantic states.
. . ."This curvier pattern allows
colder, wetter weather to plunge down into the Northeast and warmer,
drier weather to thrust upward into the West," says Stevens.
. . ."The jet stream broke sharply
from a flatter pattern in the late 1950s and the curvy pattern
has predominated ever since."
. . .Following the devastating floods
of 1993, George Will (July 18, 1993) referred to a meeting in
1957 between President Dwight Eisenhower and physicist Edward
. . ."[Teller] suggested the
possible use of atomic devices for altering the flow of rivers
and even to modify the weather by changing the dust content of
. . .Here at Grand Pre Farms in Madison
County, Virginia, we frequently have ex-aviators as guests. While
we don't agree on the cause of the unusually foul weather over
the past several summers, we feel that something is not right
with the winds aloft. We see an unnatural pattern over the past
few years of prolonged occluded or "stalled" fronts
(inversions) lasting for weeks on end during the summer months.
We do know the business of flying airplanes in all kinds of weather,
and have spent a lifetime, in fact, studying weather conditions,
which partially explains why we are still around after 50 years
of boring holes in the sky. This gives us a clue that something
is unnatural about the weather.
. . .The New American
magazine (January, 1991) quotes staff climatologist Cliff Harris,
who said that he expected wide extremes in weather patterns during
the first half of the 1990s.
. . ."In the next four to six
years, 80 percent of the existing records at both ends of the
meteorological scale will be broken. Most areas of the U.S. and
elsewhere around the world will see new all-time record highs
... new all-time record low temperatures, record droughts, record
snows, record winds, increasing tornadoes and severe hurricanes
. . .Ward Sinclair, writing in The
Washington Post (July 3, 1988) said:
"In only the second week of summer, it has become the drought
of 1988 ... this year is threatening to be one of the driest of
the last half-century."
. . .Sinclair went on to say that
the immediate problem "is a massive dry high pressure system
locked in place in the middle of the country." Sinclair asks
some cogent questions: "How long will this powerful system
remain in place? And how much more damage will it cause?"
. . .John McCaslin, writing in The
Washington Times (July 13, 1988) said:
"The cause of this year's drought is a massive ridge of high
pressure that has stalled over the central United States and split
the jet stream in half, forcing a major flow of air north into
. . .Is this natural, or could it
be that somebody is, in fact, messing with the weather?
. . .The fact is that scientists
in the U.S. as well as in the late USSR have been experimenting
with changing, redirecting and altering winds aloft for at least
40 years. That program is referred to as Weather Modification.
. . .Much of the work in weather
modification was a spinoff from development of nuclear weapons,
resulting from experiments in atom splitting, fission and fusion.
Simplistically, the process of modifying weather is to alter the
flow of winds aloft.
HOW IT'S DONE
. . .The process involves ionization
of atoms through the use of gigantic magnetrons controlling a
magnetic field perpendicular to an electric field. An ion is an
electrically charged atom or group of atoms whose charge results
from a neutral atom or group of atoms losing or gaining one or
more electrons by the action of radiant energy or by impact of
alpha and beta particles and protons on atoms and molecules causing
dissociation into ions. This occurs naturally, but can also be
. . .What we are talking about is
a powerful technique for controlled and directed energy within
the Earth's atmosphere which combines extremely high powered microwave
technology with the electromagnetic effect.
. . .Basically, just as nuclear energy
can be used as a weapon, so can weather modification, which probably
evolved as a catalytic force in the development and perfection
of chemical and biological agents as weapons of warfare.
. .An article in American
Opinion magazine (September, 1977) by Alan Stang,
titled "Making War With Weather," emphasized:
. .•Testimony before a Congressional
Committee on International Environment in 1974 by Pierre St. Amand
of the Naval Weapons Center, China Lake, California, to wit:
. . ."Assume for the minute
that a large country exists in which a non-irrigable crop must
be planted and matured so that the country has adequate food and
foreign exchange. It might, to take a negative viewpoint, be advantageous
to cause heavy rain during planting season to preclude sprouting
and growth and then to cause severe and protracted drought during
the growing season."
. . .• Profesor Gordon MacDonald
. . ."Operations producing such
conditions [disturbed environment for its competitors] might be
carried out covertly since nature's great irregularities permit
storms, floods, droughts, earthquakes, tornadoes and tidal waves
to be viewed as unusual but not unexpected. Such a secret war
need never be declared or known by the affected populations. It
could go on for years with only the security forces involved being
aware of it. The years of drought and storm could be attributed
to unkindly nature and only after a nation was thoroughly drained
would an armed takeover be attempted."
. . .Professor MacDonald also spoke
of modifying atmospheric electricity, resulting in changes in
man's alpha brain wave activity and behavior.
. . .• The Bulletin
of the American Meteorological Society (January,
1975) reported that in 1973 alone the Soviets spent more than
$100 million for weather modification — more than four times
the amount spent by the U.S.
. . "Such weather modification
could be accomplished by regulating the movement of electrically
charged particles in the upper atmosphere, resulting in changes
in the jet stream."
. . .• Stang reports that on
May 18, 1976, Cyrus Vance signed a United Nations Convention in
which the United States promises not to use the weather to make
war, "which leaves the lying Soviets free to do so,"
according to Stang.
. . .Why would anyone do this?
. . .The answer is simple, perhaps
simplistic — to create starvation conditions for selected
segments of the world's peoples on demand, and to eliminate many
if not most of the world's food producers, mainly U.S. farmers
and ranchers, by destroying their livelihood and forcing them
into bankruptcy. This same amorphous group has sought the ideal
"population control device" for decades. Now, through
a controlled program of weather modification on an international
scale, they may have the ultimate weapon ... an adjunct to what
Bernard Baruch called "the absolute weapon" (the atomic
bomb). It was that pundit's stated intent to place control of
that all-powerful force under what he called (in 1944) an "atomic
energy commission" as part of a "United Nations."
. . .Never forget that this amorphous
group of internationalists never sleeps. Their goal is to establish
a one-world despotic government over all of us through the medium
of the UN. It is now time to banish that organization from our
shores and return to the sanity of a Constitutional government
we once knew as a Republic.•
