The Conspiracy And Science Of Weather Control And Modification

First Published: January 17, 2017 Last updated: March 11th, 2019 Written by: Marcus Lowth Estimated Reading Time: 6 minutes Posted in: Conspiracy

As another “big freeze” takes it grip on much of Europe in the opening weeks of 2017, a story appeared – albeit in arguably the tabloid of tabloids – claiming that the current cold snap was in fact the result of US government weather experiments. These experiments were geared towards controlling the Earth’s environment as “World War III” was about to be unleashed, so giving the United States a potentially decisive advantage.

While the story has to be treated with a pinch of salt (and a large one at that), it is an interesting, if sobering thought, particularly when you realise that weather control and modification is very much a real science.

As the aforementioned article speculates, having the power to “freeze” an enemy’s soldiers in a predetermined position, or strike them with a “natural” disaster such as large scale flooding or even an earthquake, would put those in control of such a power on an almost undefeatable plateau.



There is more to weather control, and the methods utilised to achieve this than just wild speculation and crazy science-fiction plots. The short video below is a light hearted look at the theories and basic science behind efforts to control the weather.

Cloud-Seeding Prior To The 2008 Beijing Olympic Games

As crazy as weather control is to some people, there is no denying that it is very much a reality. Of course to what extent the weather and weather-inspired events can be manipulated is still very much a talking point.

In the run up to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the Chinese government openly operated “cloud seeding” programs. These programs are designed to ensure that there is, or isn’t, rain on a given day or period in time. In this instance, authorities are said to have fired over one-thousand specially designed “weather rockets” into the skies over Beijing in an effort to disperse the clouds that were threatening to drench the opening ceremony. Incidentally, the opening ceremony did indeed have clear skies as it played out, but grey clouds were very visible to interested onlookers. They appeared to be trapped behind an invisible barrier that stretched around the outskirts of the city.

The Chinese government didn’t just use this program for the much anticipated Olympic Games either. They regularly ensure that important days in the Chinese calendar will not be solely at Mother Nature’s mercy.

So is this a bad thing? If used purely to ensure a “nice day”, leaving aside any after-effects of such operations for a moment, then most would agree these are preferable actions. Some conspiracy theorists however believe there is evidence of weather control being utilised with much more sinister intentions than making sure everyone stays dry at public events.

Before we get into those however, the short video below looks at the claimed cloud-seeding that took place prior to the 2008 Olympics, including the science behind it.

Man-Made “Natural” Disasters?

Several seemingly natural disasters of the early twenty-first century have been targeted by conspiracy theorists as having been the result of top secret military weather experiments – usually involving the US governments, although not exclusively.

On 26th December 2004, an earthquake measuring a mammoth 9.0 on the Richter scale shook the coastal areas of the Indian Ocean. This resulted in a huge tsunami that swept over these coastal towns and cities. Over 300,000 people were killed in the disaster and the chaotic aftermath that ensued.

Some researchers though began to believe the incident was connected to top secret military weapons experiments carried out under the waters of the Indian Ocean. Incidentally, strange aerial sightings were also reported by several fishing vessels in the days before the tragic events. Even the largely mainstream BBC posed the question as to whether the US military had prior knowledge of the impending events, given that their Diego Garcia naval base was largely unaffected and seemingly prepared in advance.

Strange lights and “sounds” were reported in the weeks and days leading up to both Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and Hurricane Sandy in 2012. The latter hurricane in particular had a flurry of reports of people hearing a “metallic hum” in the days before. NBA star, Deron Williams even claimed to have witnessed strange green flashes over the sky of the city following the raging storm passing through.

These strange sounds have actually been reported all over the world, and to some there is no doubt whatsoever that they are connected to weather control projects. Before we look at some of these secret projects however, the short video clip below claims to feature the strange sounds that many reported to have heard prior to Hurricane Sandy impacting the north east coast of the United States.

HAARP (High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program)

While the US government do not deny the existence of such projects as HAARP, nor the electromagnetic wave and pulse technology they utilise, the reason they give for their actions differ greatly from those spoke about in the conspiracy community.

Although sometimes connected to such claims of mass mind control, these projects are generally said to be aimed towards gaining control over the weather and the environment – both at home and elsewhere. It is claimed that these projects are able to trigger hurricanes, tornados, and even earthquakes simply by altering the frequency output from established bases in key locations.

As far back as 1997, former US Defense Secretary, William Cohen, stated that both they, and “others”, were using the weather as a superweapon of sorts, claiming that they could “alter the climate (and) set off earthquakes and volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves!” If that was the case twenty years ago, just imagine for one moment how far advanced they might be now.

Even the European Union expressed concern about HAARP and its potential effects on people and the environment. So much so that in 1999 they passed a resolution, pressing for more information and transparency concerning the project.

The short video below features an official “Q&A” session from the Murkowski Committee regarding HAARP. Following that, the documentary “What HAARP Is” is worth watching for a fuller look at the project and just how far its reach is said to extend.

Increase In Earthquakes And Tectonic Activity?

Whether it is an unintended consequence of their actions, or whether it is the ultimate purpose of such projects as HAARP, it has been noted increasingly that there appears to be a dramatic increase in earthquakes around the planet.

There are numerous theories as to why this increase is happening, including that it is likely linked to general climate change, or even activity connected to the Sun and/or the Moon. For some though, particularly given that this increase began approximately at the same time as HAARP began in 1994, and is still being experienced today, is a link too big to ignore.

Subscribers to this theory believe that light anomalies that are often reported prior to such deadly earthquakes as the ones in Christchurch, Chile, Haiti and Japan, combined with “punch-holes” visible in clouds above the affected areas, is evidence of wave technology being used.

Over a period of several days in December 2016, it was claimed that there had been a total of 257 earthquakes that measured at least magnitude 5 on the Richter scale. During this period a large unknown wave of energy was picked up by the MIMIC TPW microwave background imagery. The website hosting this imagery claimed that it was down to a glitch in the satellite. As you might imagine, that explanation was met with more than a little suspicion by some.

The video below looks at the increased earthquake activity in general and just how strange it really is, regardless of what the cause may or may not be. The second video looks more closely at the apparent connection between HAARP and this increase in tectonic activity.

Why Would Anyone Want To Control The Weather Anyway?

While many people would flippantly say they would love to be able to “clap their hands” and have their preferred weather waiting for them outside their homes each morning, when the idea of governments doing it is mentioned, it seems a little far-fetched. Why would they be concerned with something so trivial as to whether or not it rains or is bright sunshine for example?

The fact is if a government was able to control the weather, it would hand them a power that is almost divine. It isn’t just something to exploit in times of war either. Even in “peace-time”, having the weather at your mercy presents some “opportunities to be exploited” – and make no mistake about it, big business, which so often influences political decisions, will do exactly that with little remorse.

If a country’s produce is weakened for example by unpredictable or unstable weather, while at the same time another country is able to ensure a perfect environment for their produce to thrive, it puts the latter country and its businesses, at an economic advantage, while at the same time dramatically weakening the opposition. The “knock-on” effects from this would be plentiful – on both sides of the coin.

As much as new warfare will undoubtedly take place in cyber space and via the Internet, geo-engineering is seemingly the new “warplane” of the modern world. The video below is an in depth look at such sciences, and just how advanced those that engage in such projects actually are.
