    Weather warfare

    Rarely acknowledged in the debate on global climate change, the world’s weather can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated electromagnetic weapons. Both the US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use.

    Weather-modification, according to the US Air Force document AF 2025 Final Report, ‘offers the war fighter a wide range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary’, capabilities, it says, extend to the triggering of floods, hurricanes, droughts and earthquakes: ‘Weather modification will become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally… It could have offensive and defensive applications and even be used for deterrence purposes. The ability to generate precipitation, fog and storms on earth or to modify space weather… and the production of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of [military] technologies.

    Weather manipulation is the pre-emptive weapon par excellence. It can be directed against enemy countries or ‘friendly nations’ without their knowledge, used to destabilise economies, ecosystems and agriculture. It can also trigger havoc in financial and commodity markets. The disruption in agriculture creates a greater dependency on food aid and imported grain staples from the US and other Western countries.

    It's scary but also fascinating the kind of technology we keep advancing too, I mean it could also be used to help if we do suffer a global warming, maybe to manufacture seasons or something. They Have the biggest ELF wave measurement in Alaska with the HAARP program.

    Do you have any idea how much energy would be required to effect the weather? And, since when was earthquakes, a type of weather? Exactly how do you predetermine the point of maximum stress within the earths crust, and trigger a fault slide?

    Must be some good weed.

    Triggering floods is easy, we hit a dam with a bunker buster.

    Executive Summary

    "HAARP" is the abbreviation for "High-frequency Active Auroral Research Project". The name of this American project camouflages the fact that it has the potential for being a greater catastrophe for mankind than the creation of the atomic bomb. The truth of the matter is that the HAARP installation can be used to wage a science-fiction-type battle. We are dealing here with a reckless experiment. Under the guise of the harmless-sounding name of "HAARP", the American government is planning to bombard the sky with energy-rays from a vast installation of antennas. These energy-rays will then be reflected back to Earth from the ionosphere as electric waves of an extremely low frequency (ELF). This process is capable of transforming these ELF waves into a very insidious weapon for:

    These ELF vibrations are able to penetrate the brains of people and animals if the vibrations are aimed in their direction. This will not only immobilize the victims preventing them from performing any movement or act of defense, but will also render them insane as well. A useful tool for the military, these waves can also penetrate walls of brick and steel.
    ELF frequencies improve radio contact and reception, even those within thick bunkers and atomic submarines.
    ELF vibrations can penetrate the Earth's surface and detect hidden bunkers.
    ELF waves can be used to track down and pinpoint missiles, airplanes and other flying craft even on the other side of the globe.
    ELF frequencies can entirely block electronic devices and radio waves of the enemy.
    These capabilities present, however, merely one facet of HAARP's technology. Possible side-effects that are just as frightening must also be considered. The fact is that, to date, no one completely understands how the ionosphere will react when it is impacted by these energy-rays. We must bear in mind that the ionosphere is very fragile. Together with the ozone layer, it protects the planet Earth and all life forms from the deadly rays of outer space. It is definitely possible that the additional energy-beams emitted by the HAARP program will not only disturb but actually destroy this sensitive system and the protective ozone layer.

    Actually, those reflected waves make a new type of radar. It can see aircraft over a very wide area. Think of it as holes in a perfectly uniform transmission wave front.

    The weather voodoo control board, was a response to the Chinese weather voodoo. Their just shooting artillary shells full of seed dust into the atmosphere. Plus it's always good to keep up with what other countries are doing, when it comes coaxing moisture out of the atmosphere, because that water was suppose to fall somewhere else.

    Oh well, sounds fun. Later.

    From my understanding, weather warfare is very difficult to accomplish and would likely be of very limited value in a battlefield.

    Reasons:
    1: As far as I got it, one can either make the weather to become more cloudy or less cloudy, making things more cloudy is way easier (refered as "raindance" in the German military), however, dont get funny ideas about making it rain in the Sahara, the resources one needs for to artificially create cloudy is quite extreme. To get the clouds going, one, at least at the moment, needs air superiority in the area where one wants the clouds to be. Since clouds limit the effect of air strikes, it is not really smart to create them in a position were air superiority is achieved.
    2: On a tactical scale, weather will always affect both sides. In addition, it can not be controlled in a precice time resolution, one can do something like "its going to rain tomorow" but not "it is going to rain this night, rainfall will stop at 04.15 for an airstike, start again at 4.30 to cover the infantry advance and stop at 16.30 to give our soldiers an opportunity to dry their uniforms.

    It can however be usefull for sneaky strategic warfare, things like causing a drought could be applied but would likely be treated like conventional state based terrorism.

    In the future maybe years from now they will havw developed it to make rain, snow etc etc, then if global warming starts to scorch us, they can battle that.
