The Invisible U.S. Military Offensives in Weather Weaponry

by snow Thursday, Aug. 26, 2004 at 2:05 PM

To gain further insight into the mental illness of our leaders, and the irresponsible, catastrophic direction in which they have thrust us, consider the ongoing research, development and applications of weather warfare technologies. Adherents of weather warfare prefer to call it “environmental modification techniques” – or ENMOD. The corporate media has reported almost nothing about these aerospace and defense programs, or the technologies involved. Thus do I open the discussion of the ENMOD arena by deconstructing recent news stories. 2002

6.     The U.S. government position vacillates between admissions that limited development of ENMOD technologies has occurred in the private sector, and that ENMOD technologies do not exist at all.

7.     Scientists, soldiers and government officials have lied outright, and many continue to intentionally obfuscate and misinform on climate issues and weather warfare.

8.     There is a trillion dollar industry behind the monied interests, and the propaganda, of fossil fuels, weather warfare, military and climate issues.

9.     The military-industrial complex has no intentions of mitigating climatic mayhem.

10.  ENMOD and weather weaponry relies on widespread environmental instability to provide a threshold of “background” chaos to shield its covert ENMOD operations.

11.  The United States of America has violated the 1977 Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques,  (ENMOD Treaty), of which it is a long-standing signatory member.   

12.  The United Nations has demonstrated its lack of attention and investigation into climate issues and the violations of international treaties (as above).

13.  The military ENMOD programs and their goals are predicated on widespread devastation, environmental calamity, and loss of life in the so-called “developing” world.

14.  Gross environmental instabilities are appearing more frequently, with greater force and violence, virtually everywhere at once.

15.  Intentional depopulation of various, and large, groups and ethnicities by various other groups and ethnicities is occurring, and will increasingly occur, given the current momentum and direction of American military-corporate power.

16.  The United States of America has violated the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide, approved by the General Assembly of the United Nations in Resolution 260 A (III) of 9 December 1948, to which it is a signatory member.

17.  The United States is responsible for war crimes and genocide in numerous instances.

18.  The United Nations has not served the oversight purposes for which it was ostensibly created, and instead serves the purposes for which it was actually created: to insure the prosperity and military objectives of powerful entrenched interests.

19.  Rich and poor countries alike will increasingly suffer as accelerated processes of environmental change are aggravated by unforeseen feedback mechanisms.

20.  The radical shift to an alternate state or states of climate, most probably undesirable and unmanageable, has become an increasingly likely event, and it is increasingly likely that such an event will occur sooner rather than later.   ~ end.

 

 

 

keith harmon snow graduated B.S.E.E. and M.S.E.E. with a specialty in microwaves and antennas engineering from the University of Massachusetts, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, in 1986. From 1985 to 1989 he worked for General Electric Aerospace Electronics Laboratory on aerospace and defense technologies for aerospace and defense communications, RADAR EW, and Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) programs. Since 1990 he has worked as a journalist.

[12] From Weather as a Force Multipleir: A pilot program (Project Popeye) conducted in 1966 attempted to extend the monsoon season in order to increase the amount of mud on the Ho Chi Minh trail thereby reducing enemy movements. A silver iodide nuclei agent was dispersed from WC-130, F4 and A-1E aircraft into the clouds over portions of the trail winding from North Vietnam through Laos and Cambodia into South Vietnam. Positive results during this initial program led to continued operations from 1967 to 1972. E. M.
