WEATHER MODIFICATION OPERATIONS
OCTOBER 1, 1966 - SEPTEMBER 30, 1967
State of California
WILLIAM R. GIANELU
Department of Water Resources
California is a natural outdoor laboratory for weather modification. The Coast
and Sierra Rajiges induce an orographic effect which aids in maximizing weather
modification opportunities and project efficiency.
Weather modification operations in California are governed by Chapter k, Divi-
sion 1, Sections UOO through U15 of the Water Code. These Water Code sections
prescribe procedures for licensing contractors and for initiating and reporting

16 Summary of Area Seeding Operations,
The revival of the Cold War during the Reagan years produced a slew of new inventions in the area of weather modification. Presumably to cool off the earth, an August 1982 patent, number 4347284, outlined plans to produce a "White covered sheet material capable of reflecting ultraviolet rays" from the sun.
Numerous other patents attempted to perfect "aerial spraying of liquids," like patent number 4412654, registered in November 1983: "A laminar microjet atomizer and method of aerial spraying involved the use of a streamlined body having a slot in the trailing edge thereof to afford a quiescent zone within the [airplane] wing and into which liquid for spraying is introduced."
Are U.S. planes spraying chemicals?
Widespread illnesses reported in wake of contrails

Some people have respiratory problems. Others have mouth blisters. Still others are chronically tired. Many people are suffering from a combination of these illnesses, coupled with weight loss, burning mouths and noses, hoarseness, dizziness
and disorientation. And they say their symptoms can last for days and even weeks.
Reports say hospital emergency rooms
in some areas of the country have been flooded with such patients, while talk radio programs have begun to discuss the phenomenon at length. The Internet is abuzz with theories, counter-theories, and any measure of explanation. But no matter what aspect of the story is debated, more and more people are beginning to dismiss the naysayers who insist it is nothing more than an elaborate hoax. It's real, say the infected and affected -- and it's getting worse. But what is going on?
Specifically, the focus of this mysterious "sickness" is centered around the observance of contrails -- trails of gaseous substances -- left in the wake of jet planes flying high above certain areas of the country.
