      Ten unique government reports document the history of attempted weather and climate modification efforts, including Defense Department projections of future programs and a detailed history of Project Stormfury and related hurricane modification trials. Weather modification can also have the goal of preventing damaging weather, such as hail or hurricanes, from occurring. As part of Public Law (), all non-Federal weather modification activities must be reported to the U.S. Secretary of Commerce, via the NOAA Office of Weather and Air Quality.

    Weather and Climate book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers/5(9).   The inclusion of rare examples of climate modification ‘success stories’, such as the British wartime FIDO project, demonstrate a balanced and scholarly approach throughout the book. The more interesting question is how the history of weather and climate modification can shape present discussions about geo-engineering fixes to climate change.

    Chemtrail conspiracy theories began to circulate after the United States Air Force (USAF) published a report about weather modification. Following the report, in the late s the USAF was accused of "spraying the U.S. population with mysterious substances" from aircraft "generating unusual contrail patterns.". The checkered history of weather and climate modification exhibits a modicum of promise and an excess of hype. This paper examines two completed historical cycles: the first, dating from , involved western proprietary rainmaking or ““pluviculture;”” the second, from to involved ““cloud seeding,”” commercial rainmaking, and the attempted weaponization of the .

Thank you for your : Progressive Management. The book discusses the concepts behind deliberate human attempts to modify the weather through cloud seeding, as well as inadvertent modification of weather and climate on the regional scale. The natural variability of weather and climate greatly complicates our ability to determine a clear cause-and-effect relationship to human activity.

One can conceive of non-atmos­ pheric possibilities for deliberate weather and climate modification which could lead to major changes in climate. An example is possible altera­ tion of the oceanic heat balance by lifting cold water to the surface in major currents such as the Gulf Stream or Kuroshio (Japan) Current.

Environmental modification techniques (ENMOD) for military use constitute, in the present context of global warfare, the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.

Rarely acknowledged in the debate on global climate change, the world’s weather can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated electromagnetic weapons. 2 Timothy ESV / helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful.

The book also focuses on weather and human behavior. Human biometeorology and climatic determinism; climate and comfort; weather and society; and climate and health are discussed.

The text also describes the impacts of extreme events, including tropical cyclones, local storms, cumulative hazards, and climatic change.

Weather Modification Project Reports Considered a promising science, weather modification has the goals of preventing damaging weather and has been utilized since the s & s. As part of Public Law (), all non-Federal weather modification activities must be reported to the U.S.

APPENDIX C. Planned Weather Modification. PLANNED WEATHER MODIFICATION VERSUS CLIMATE INTERVENTION. Weather modification, which could also be called “weather intervention,” is the intentional alteration of the composition, behavior, or dynamics of the atmosphere occurring over a specified area and time period to accomplish a particular goal.

Weather and Agriculture presents the major principles involved in the integrated study of weather and agriculture. The book is divided into three sections. Part I discusses the aspects of environmental factors and their validity and measurement.

Part II presents a selection of the weather hazards and their relation to agricultural practice. Space Weather Modification is also gaining more publicity.

When upper atmospheric nuclear explosions were banned back in the ’s, the U.S. military still hell bent on replacing our fickle ionosphere with something more reliable decided to dump millions of needles in space to create their own.

The AMS Weather Book is the most comprehensive, up-to-date guide to the weather and covers everything from daily weather patterns to air pollution and global warming and explores the stories of people coping with severe weather and those who devote their lives to understanding the atmosphere, oceans, and climate.

climate change: see global warmingglobal warming, the gradual increase of the temperature of the earth's lower atmosphere as a result of the increase in greenhouse gases since the Industrial Revolution.

Global warming and its effects, such as more intense summer and winter storms, are also referred to as climate. Click the link for more information. James Rodger Fleming's book is a kind of tour de folie, an authoritative recounting over two centuries of weather changers and climate controllers, rainmakers and rain fakers, and cloud seeders and fog dissolvers.While the original design of today's weather (and climate) modification program may be attributed to DARPA and Edward Teller's Lawrence Livermore Labs, the actual programming of today's weather is managed by the U.S.
