This same story about aerosols from tiny volcanoes performing acrobatic leaps into the stratosphere gets regurgitated and recirculated every two years or so.
Because every two years or so studies based on computer modeling don't agree with real life.
And we have to start looking for where all the extra junk came from.
Because observational evidence of all the daily spewing from jets is just too obvious.
An extensive and previously unknown “twilight zone” of particles in the atmosphere could complicate scientists’ efforts to determine how much the Earth's climate will warm in the future, a new study finds.
What appears as clear sky around a cloud as seen from the ground through a digital camera (left) actually has a twilight zone of light-reflecting particles around it (right).
The previously unknown ingredient in the atmospheric mixture of particles will have to be factored into models that try to predict how the atmosphere influences the change of global temperatures.
Improved characterization of aerosol properties in the vicinity of clouds is important for better understanding two critical aspects of climate: aerosol-cloud interactions and the direct radiative effect of aerosols. Satellite measurements have provided important insights into aerosol properties near clouds, but also suggested that the observations can be affected by 3-D radiative processes and instrument blurring not considered in current data interpretation methods. This study examines systematic changes in particle properties and radiation fields that influence satellite measurements of aerosols in the vicinity of clouds. For this, the paper presents a statistical analysis of a yearlong global dataset of co-located MODIS and CALIOP observations and theoretical simulations. The results reveal that CALIOP-observed aerosol particle size and optical thickness, and MODIS-observed solar reflectance increase systematically in a wide transition zone around clouds. It is estimated that near-cloud changes in particle populations – including both aerosols and undetected cloud particles – are responsible for roughly two thirds of the observed increase in 0.55 μm MODIS reflectance. The results also indicate that 3-D radiative processes significantly contribute to near-cloud reflectance enhancements, while instrument blurring does not.

Your post is a joke.

Was the 22,000lb Grand Slam ever considered for that? It was nicknamed the earthquake bomb when dropped on land targets due to it's devastating effects.

The constant claim is that HAARP is used to control the weather. It can do anything from move hurricanes, to make volcanoes explode. If it was anything like that, then Climate Change should be a thing of the past.
Volcanic eruptions over the past decade or so have cooled global lower-atmosphere temperatures to a statistically significant degree, concludes an article published online in Nature Geoscience. Incorporating these volcanic influences into climate models reduces the difference between observed and computer-simulated surface temperature trends between 1998 and 2012 by up to 15 per cent.
Spending billions to release particulates into the upper atmosphere would not be needed. Just blow a few more volcanoes.
But since the climate issue still exists, is it not reasonable to assume that perhaps we don't have control over things like steering hurricanes and when volcanoes blow?
