After a bit of digging I was able to find the NOAA's records from 1972 - 1973:

Archive of Weather Modification in 1972 - 1973


WEATHER MODIFICATION ACTIVITY REPORTS - NOVEMBER 1, 1972, TO DECEMBER 31, 1973

Mason T. Charak and Mary T. PiGiullan
ABSTRACT



All nonfederal ly sponsored weather modification activities
in the United States and its territories must, by law,
be reported to the Secretary of Commerce. Recent agree-
ments with applicable Federal agencies also provide for
reports of their weather modification activities. The
same law also requires that summaries of the reported
activities be published periodically. This summary, there-
fore, is an analysis of 67 activity reports submitted to
the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which
administers the weather modification reporting program on
behalf of the Secretary. Reports received from November 1,
1972, to December 31, 1973, have been reviewed and grouped
into categories covering project purpose, location,
sponsors, operators, modification equipment, techniques,
seeding agents, and related factors.



INTRODUCTION

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has administered,
on behalf of the Secretary of Commerce, a weather modification reporting
program authorized by Public Law 92-205. This law, a copy of which is given
in appendix A, requires the reporting of all nonfederal ly sponsored weather
modification activities in the United States and its territories.


This report is quite old, but one point is nevertheless quite striking: in these two years alone, 67 weather modification activities have been carried out on US territories, and submitted to the NOAA.

Fast forward 39 years. You'd think that weather modification activities would have ceased so to avoid interfering with climate models.

I dug up the 2011 report:

Archive of Weather Modification, 2011

For those who cannot view pdf files, here is an image of the file:



(You might want to zoom in. )

In short, starting from january 2011, 32 weather modification activities have been carried out by various agencies, and the goal of the majority of these modifications have been to increase snowfall. So, what what were the effects of these modification activities? Well, it so happened that early in January, USA have seen massive amounts of snowfall. This correlates with the start of the snowfall-encouraging weather modification activities, as can be seen in the NOAA document.

A snowfall which was then blamed on... Global warming.


Monster snowstorms still spell global warming
By Michio Kaku, Special to CNN

The weather seems to be going berserk, with more snow dumped on our beleaguered Northeastern cities in a month than in a year, paralyzing business and our lives. Records are being broken even as we speak.
Common sense says that it's the freezing cold that is behind the freaky weather. But physics says otherwise (...) realize that global warming can heat the oceans and generate more moisture, which in turn can drive larger storms (...)


www.cnn.com...

Hm. What if local, freak weather which are blamed on AWG were actually caused by local weather modification activities? Or worst - what if the effects of some weather modification activities were used so to generate artificial evidences in favour of AWG?

Just saying...

Or it's just someone trying to make the connection because they found a paper that has been out there since 2011...

Just saying.


Weather modification is used for a variety of reasons, but I highly doubt it is used for the AWG agenda.

Weather modification is done on a local scale it wouldn't affect the Earth on a global scale.

Well, this is typical of me. Noticing correlations. I just hope I am wrong.

I know this thread will not be a popular one. But I don't do it for the stars or flags - I do it because I want to explore the actual variables behind the issue.

Indeed, but then, you don't need to do it on a global scale - to influence the opinion of, say, americans, then you'd only need to weather-mod the territories where most american people live.

Additionally, climate is the collection of all the weathers on Earth - so, technically, even though you're influencing only a part of it, you'd still be influencing (albeit to a very limited extent) it.

no,

but when it is put on paper and blamed on global warming/ climate change, and propaganda by a paid sellout of a scientist used to push a false narrative, something anit right.

ETA: to be fair i suppose that scientists could overlook the activities, but i think that highly unlikely.

What are you trying to say?

That weather modification is "impossible" to achieve with our current technology?

Beijing using rockets to keep 2008 Olympics ceremonies free of rain

Keep in mind that those agencies in USA which are specialized in weather mod are receiving money from somewhere - well, someone. Operations like these can often cost in millions. Which means the efficiency of the weather mod as described in the paper is definitely good enough to convince the investor to keep investing.

Except it has been done in those areas for many years and most know what it does. Which is why it is only a big deal to conspiracy theorists.

The thing is if they make it rain in Idaho that has no bearing on my climate in Georgia...so localized use of weather modification only effects the local climate not a global one.

quite the contrary, it means that man is modifying the weather, and that a possibility exists that scientists for whatever reason ignore or overlook it. then say that crazy weather is a result of global warming/ climate change. when in fact it could be weather modification.

Wrong. That's exactly it - most people don't even know about weather modification events. It took me two hours of intensive search just to find the 2011 report, and I still haven't found the 2014 report yet.

So in the end, it is sooo easy for some AWG pushers (wether unintentionally or intentionally) to use weather mod events as artificial evidences for AWG... In fact they may already have in 2011!

Affecting the local climate somewhere most certainly does affect the global climate, everything is connected. Excess moisture in one region affects every region around it and vice versa. We have rivers and streams and underground reservoirs that move this water from these isolated regions that affects everything around it. The affect of this water then affects the biological ecosystems, which in turn affect everything else.

question, when was the last time on any global warming/ climate change report or article have you seen a disclaimer that weather modification in certain regions were not considered in the compilation of this report?


hell they are still trying to figure out a way to say that el nino and la nina are not part of global warming/ climate change. when it has been documented and spoke of for a least 200 years, and effecting land masses. they sure as hell aren't going to say man made weather has anything to do with it.

Oh I am sure all of that man made stuff is just weather and not needed to be included into the Climate Models (sarc) But yea why would weather events be blamed on climate change when some are man made and have nothing to do with CO2 ...good post S&F

That's because they know it by it's more common name...cloud seeding.

I guess Texas is bucking that trend...


Section 301.112. Publication of Notice.

The notice of intention required under Section 301.110 must be published at least once a week for three consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation in each county in which the operation is to be conducted.


www.tdlr.texas.gov...

Seems it has been discussed in some rather large media publications...

www.usnews.com...



So in the end, it is sooo easy for some AWG pushers (wether unintentionally or intentionally) to use weather mod events as artificial evidences for AWG... In fact they may already have in 2011!


And when those pushers have their claims researched it will be seen they embellished their so called findings.

So when it snows in Russia my climate is effected in Georgia how?

When you make it rain in Texas how does that effect the climate in Hawaii?



Excess moisture in one region affects every region around it and vice versa.


Really because when Florida gets an abundance of rain I am not effected in Ga by it, unless of course their rain is in the northern part of the state and I am in the southern part of Ga, but when it rains in Fla. right outside Atlanta doesn't feel the effects of that rain.



We have rivers and streams and underground reservoirs that move this water from these isolated regions that affects everything around it.


Yes locally...not globally it doesn't.

Do you not recall Sen. Inhofe or many members who claim on this very board that snow is evidence of no warming?

Further, your article talking about global warming-linked snowstorms is discussing storms in the Northeast.
Your weather modification record is talking about California, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Texas, and North Dakota.

You are grasping at straws when you try to make the connection between small scale weather modification experiments and AGW, however you made a good discovery and they have come a long way from basic cloud seeding and Project Storm Fury.

Weather modification has nothing to do with the spike of CO2 levels we are observing.

I really don't know what your point ofv that reply was.

If anything creating clouds and precipitation will cause a local cooling effect....not exactly on par with the AGW agenda some rant about.
