Some will argue tropical weather modification already exists and is being used for destructive purposes, but I have yet to see proof in those
I like the idea of the ablility to stear destructive vortexes away from land, but the experimental phase would be tough to stomach for the populace.
Makes me wonder if they would actually tell the public that they were trying to manipulate the weather, but I see it as a necessary evil for the
betterment of global climate control in the long run.
Here's some information on a current ionization project going on in Northern Mexico and Texas.
Electric Rainmaking Technology Gets Mexico's Blessing
Ionization technology is called either IOLA (ionization of the local atmosphere) by Earthwise or ELAT (electrification of the atmosphere) by the
company ELAT. IOLA and ELAT compete with conventional cloud seeding, which – though it also remains scientifically unproven – is used in more than
24 countries and 10 U.S. states.
Bruni: Rain "A Done Deal"
"It's a done deal," Webb County Judge Louis H. Bruni announced Monday after signing a $1.2 million contract for a weather modification project,
known as Provaqua. It is expected to increase rainfall in the Rio Grande basin by at least 15 percent.
Weather Modification Into the 21st Century
Its history began in the mid '70’s when Dr. Pokhmelnykh, a Russian scientist, started researching the effects of electricity in the atmosphere. In
the 1980’s, while working at the USSR Meteorological Protection Laboratory in Moscow, Dr. Pokhmelnykh continued his work in weather modification.
His research led to the development of Dr. Pokhmelnykh's first patented atmospheric ionization technology and the establishment of ELAT, a
Moscow-based weather modification company.
