Others [terrorists] 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… So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations…It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts.
Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by former Senator Sam Nunn. Quoted from DoD News Briefing, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, Q&A at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy, University of Georgia, Athens, Apr. 28, 1997.

Scalar Weapons & Tesla Howitzers

The more research I do into the subject of Weather Modification technologies used as weapons the more it would appear that they are being used globally, now, and that we are in the midst of a Scalar War. The latest 'shots' in this undeclared and unknown war being hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and possibly typhoon Domrey too. Quakes in Iran and droughts in N Korea could also be the work of these Tesla Howitzers.

This link to an article about their potential use in Iraq - 
http://www.raven1.net/mager.htm - provides a good overview of these "Electromagnetiic Interferometer" technologies and who might have them. The Tom Bearden site at  http://www.cheniere.org is also a great source.

Wild stuff but not impossible... certainly the breadth of info on the web around this issue is phenomenal, just google "scalar earthquakes", "HAARP", "chemtrails" or "weather wars"... there's some wacky stuff out there but also some very convincing and well documented arguments.

I first got interested in this issue after reading an article on the US HAARP project, a weather modification weapon project started in the early 90's, after someone said it could have been used to create and steer Katrina. My first thought was why on earth would the US use a weapon like that against it's own people?, well despite the fact that I believe the Bush Junta is quite capable of such an act, I think it more likely it was an 'enemy' of the US. It would appear that the US are relative latecomers to this technology, with the former USSR the original implementors/inventors of these 'invisible' Geo-Weapons of Mass Destruction.

There are a number of 'theories' out there about who is controlling these weapons and using them but the most common one goes something like this:

Originally developed by the Soviets during the Cold War 60's and controlled by the KGB. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union in the late 80's/early 90's the technology and weapons came under the control of the Japanese Yakuza, along with a hardline group within the FSB/KGB. The Yakuza bought the technology and lease the weapons sites inside Russia. 

Either the US finally woke up to the threat, aquired the technology from Soviet scientists and started thier own development and deployment (HAARP) in the early 90's OR the US had already been developing Geo Weapons since the 50's but it wasn't until the 90's that they received the funding and accelerated development to deploy and use them, perhaps because of the 'threat' from the 'enemy'. I tend to favor the theory that the US has been developing such weapons since the 60's. Consider the work of Wilhelm Riech on Orgone Energy (a type of Electromagnetic Scalar energy) which was done there and suppressed by the US government in the 60's

Whatever the history, it would now appear that at least 3 global powers have these weapons and are using them at great risk to the planet. Was the close Katrina, Rita, Domrey sequence a tit-for-tat volley of Geo Weapons fire between two or more adversaries ? If it was it would appear that the US are still not as advanced in this field as others !

If you look at the Chemtrails issue -
www.weatherwars.info - is a good source - it looks like the US is pretty focussed on defence against these weapons and the ability to spot their use. Chemtrails/Cloverleaf/Operation Shield has clearly been going on, also since the early 90's.

Now this chemtrail/contrail project may well be an attempt to mitgate against Climate Change, but if so why are we not being told this. Could it be contributing to Climate Change as others would have it? Is Climate Change and Earth Change a very man-made affair?, and I don't mean because of increased carbon emmisions!

OK, you say, Tom has clearly been smoking some potent weed lately :-)

Well just look at the evidence on multiple websites and make your own mind up. I have included a lot of info on this site and links to other sources of info on these critical subjects

It has certainly peeked my interest and got me doing research and I'm about to start reading a book called "Angels don't play this HAARP' about the US HAARP weather modification project.

Scary and bizzare stuff indeed... as that ancient Chinese curse goes ;

Check Out :
Brezhnev's unheeded 1975 characterization of these weapons as "more frightening than the mind of man has ever imagined" has very real justification.

The Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction:
"Owning the Weather" for Military Use
by Michel Chossudovsky

www.globalresearch.ca 27 September 2004

The URL of this article is: http://globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO409F.html
This article is follow-up on an earlier study by the author entitled Washington's New World Order Weapons Have the Ability to Trigger Climate Change, Third World Resurgence, January 2001, http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO201A.html

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." (Eco News)

What are the underlying causes of extreme weather instability, which has ravaged every major region of the World in the course of the last few years?  
Hurricanes and tropical storms have ravaged the Caribbean. Central Asia and the Middle East are afflicted by drought. West Africa is facing the biggest swarm of locusts in more than a decade. Four destructive hurricanes and a tropical rain storm  Alex, Ivan, Frances, Charley and Jeanne have occurred in a sequence, within a short period of time. Unprecedented in hurricane history in the Caribbean, the island of Grenada was completely devastated: 37 people died and roughly two-thirds of the island's 100,000 inhabitants have been left homeless; in Haiti, more than two thousand people have died and tens of thousands are homeless. The Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cuba, the Bahamas and Florida have also been devastated. In the US, the damage in several Southern states including Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and the Carolinas is the highest in US history.
A study released in July 2003, by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) places the blame, without further examination, at the feet of global warming:
"These record extreme events [high temperatures, low temperatures and high rainfall amounts and droughts] all go into calculating the monthly and annual averages which, for temperatures, have been gradually increasing over the past 100 years," the WMO said in its statement (CNN, July 3, 2003, http://www.cnn.com/2003/WEATHER/07/03/wmo.extremes/ )
While global warming is undoubtedly an important factor, it does not fully account for these extreme and unusual weather patterns.
Weather Warfare
The significant expansion in America's weather warfare arsenal, which is a priority of the Department of Defense is not a matter for debate or discussion. While, environmentalists blame the Bush administration for not having signed the Kyoto protocol, the issue of "weather warfare", namely the manipulation of weather patterns for military use is never mentioned.
The US Air Force has the capability of manipulating climate either for testing purposes or for outright military-intelligence use. These capabilities extend to the triggering of floods, hurricanes, droughts and earthquakes. In recent years, large amounts of money have been allocated by the US Department of Defense to further developing and perfecting these capabilities. 
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 technologies which can provide substantial increase in US, or degraded capability in an adversary, to achieve global awareness, reach, and power. (US Air Force, emphasis added. Air University of the US Air Force, AF 2025 Final Report, http://www.au.af.mil/au/2025/ emphasis added)
While there is no firm evidence that the US Air Force weather warfare facilities have been deliberately applied to modify weather patterns, one would expect that if these capabilities are being developed for military use, they would at least be the object of routine testing, much in the same way as the testing of new conventional and strategic weapons systems. 
Needless to say, the subject matter is a scientific taboo. The possibility of climatic or environmental manipulations as part of a military and intelligence agenda, while tacitly acknowledged, is never considered as relevant. Military analysts are mute on the subject. Meteorologists are not investigating the matter, and environmentalists are strung on global warming and the Kyoto protocol.
Ironically, the Pentagon, while recognizing its ability to modify the World's climate for military use, has joined the global warming consensus. In a major study (pdf) , the Pentagon has analyzed in detail the implications of various global warming scenarios. 
The Pentagon document constitutes a convenient cover-up. Not a word is mentioned about its main weather warfare program: The High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) based in Gokona, Alaska --jointly managed by the US Air Force and the US Navy.

TABLE 1:  Unusual Weather Patterns (2003-2004)
Alex, Ivan, Frances, Charley and Jeanne (August-September 2004): Four destructive hurricanes and a tropical rain storm occur in a sequence, within a short period of time. Unprecedented in hurricane history in the Caribbean, the island of Grenada is completely devastated: 37 people died and roughly two-thirds of the island's 100,000 inhabitants have been left homeless, in Haiti, more than two thousand people have died and tens of thousands have been made homeless. The Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cuba and the Bahamas have also been devastated. 
In the US, the damage hitting several Southern states including Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and the Carolinas is the highest in US history.
Brazil  March 2004:   The first-ever hurricane formed in the South Atlantic, striking Brazil with 90 mph winds and causing up to a dozen deaths. "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." (WP, 19 September 2004, See also http://www.climate.org/topics/climate/brazil_hurricane.shtml )
Japan, China and the Korean Peninsula: "Japan has suffered its highest number of typhoon strikes on record, and the storms -- which hit at the rate of one a week for much of the summer -- wreaked havoc in Taiwan, China and the Korean Peninsula." (ibid)
China (August 2004): Typhoon Rananim, the worst in 48 years, has killed at least 164 people and injured more than 1800 in China's Zhejiang province. Rananim is confirmed by China's meteorological authorities to be the strongest to hit the Chinese mainland since 1956. It is estimated to have disrupted the life of some 13 million people, http://www.cma.gov.cn/ywwz/englishread.php?recid=39616
United States May 2003 : 562 tornadoes hit the United States, the highest in recorded history, far exceeding the previous monthly peak of 399 in June 1992.(CNN, July 3, 2003, http://www.cnn.com/2003/WEATHER/07/03/wmo.extremes/ )
India, early 2003: a pre-monsoon heat wave caused peak temperatures of between 45 and 49 degrees Celsius (113 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit), killing more than 1400 people.(Ibid)  
Sri Lanka, "heavy rainfalls from Tropical Cyclone 01B exacerbated already wet conditions, causing flooding and landslides and more than 300 fatalities." (Ibid)
Western Europe Summer 2003: experienced extremely high Summer temperatures. "Switzerland experienced its hottest June [2003] in at least 250 years while in the south of France average temperatures were between 5 and 7 degrees Celsius (9 to 13 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer than the long term average. England and Wales also experienced their hottest month since 1976." (Ibid)

There are several mainstream explanations on weather and climate change, none of which fully explains, within their respective terms of reference, the highly unusual and erratic weather occurrences, not to mention the human toll and devastation, which have led to the destabilization of entire agricultural and eco-systems. Needless to say these explanations never address the issue of climate manipulation for military use.
