February 11, 2008 - Weather Warfare Show with Jerry E. Smith
Listen 7:00- 9:00 pm (PST) to the WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com and to our guest Jerry E. Smith.
Jerry E. Smith began his professional career as a writer, lecturer and
editor back in 1969. His
bibliography of published works includes scores of articles and
reviews, over a dozen ghost-written books, and three non-fiction works. His newest book is
The Military's Plan to Draft Mother Nature." It is a follow up to his
1998 best seller "HAARP: The Ultimate Weapon of the Conspiracy."
His interest in technology and its impact on society began early. At the impressionable age of eight he read Robert A. Heinlein’s Have Spacesuit, Will Travel, in which the teenaged hero is brought into an intergalactic court and forced to defend why humanity should not be terminated. That introduction to science- or speculative-fiction, which forced the reader to think, was overpowering. By age twelve he had read every sci-fi book in the local library; by the time he passed out of his teens he had read over 10,000 sci-fi and fantasy novels. He also became fascinated with ancient history and had read many of the surviving plays and epics of ancient Greece, Rome and Norse mythology. In school he excelled in social studies and history. He began a life-long study of the world’s great religions and philosophies.
He also became an activist, involved initially in the Civil Rights, and then the Anti-War movements. In 1967-68 he campaigned for Dick Gregory’s write-in bid for the Presidency.
Jerry’s first national magazine exposure under his own name was the article Star Trek: Sci-fi or Psy-war? Since the publication of "HAARP: The Ultimate Weapon" in 1998, Jerry continues to speak publicly, research, and write about geo-politics and emerging technologies that threaten our freedoms.
WEATHER WARFARE: The Military's Plan to Draft Mother Nature is scientific reporting at a layman's level. He presents evidence from military and scientific sources that intentional environmental modification (EnMod) is the 600-pound gorilla at the global warming debate that everyone is pretending isn't there.
His earlier book was about the "who" and "why" behind the HAARP program, Weather Warfare documents the reality of intentional EnMod, and the threat to health and security it poses.
The heart of WEATHER WARFARE is proof that EnMod is science fact and that we have neither the political nor legal infrastructure in place to deal with this technology. Addressed at length is the dismal failure of the 1978 United Nations EnMod Convention, which prohibits the use of environmental modification as a weapon of war. The unaddressed issue of ongoing intentional EnMod by various militaries, terrorists and civilians is a key factor skewing the evidence in the global warming/climate change debate and as such is of gravest importance. The politics of the 21st century, and possibly our survival as a species, will turn on how this debate plays out.
Despite the title, it is not just "The Military." It is about the whole environment: earth, air and sea; it is about a lot of players: academic, commercial and military; with a lot of objectives: financial, militaristic and political.
There is substantial difference between climate and weather. Robert A.Heinlein wrote "climate is what you expect, weather is what you get." Mainstream science recognizes that man does have the ability to alter the weather on a limited scale intentionally, and to alter the climate on a vast scale unintentionally. Jerry presents evidence that what can be done intentionally is far greater than what the mainstream is willing to or able to admit.
He looks at the history of "weather control" from the Rain Makers of the 1890s through the development of cloud seeding in the middle of the twentieth century, to today's "off the shelf" technologies of precipitation enhancement, hail suppression and fog dispersal. He looks at programs to manipulate hurricanes, such as Project Cirrus and Project Stormfury, and what evidence there is of being able to control hurricanes in the 21st Century.
It also covers Defense Secretary Cohen's claim that "Others ... can ... set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves." Starting with Nicola Tesla's earthquake machine of the 1890s he traces the possibility of "earthquakes on demand" from the development of a "tsunami bomb" during World War II (as revealed by documents recently declassified by the New Zealand government), through Project Faultless which caused a massive earthquake in the Nevada desert after a high yield atom bomb was intentionally detonated on a fault line, to evidences of human initiation of several major quakes.
The US Air Force insists that it has no interest in "controlling the weather" yet HAARP represents the expenditure of hundreds of millions of dollars and a decade of research and construction in a program whose avowed purpose is to modify the atmosphere. What, if any, is the difference between "modifying the atmosphere" and "controlling the weather"?
WEATHER WARFARE also examines claims that chemicals are being deliberately injected into our atmosphere by high-flying planes that are criss-crossing our skies with "chemtrails." First I examine the environmental issues associated with jet aircraft condensation trails (contrails), which are indeed grave. Then he looks at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and numerous other national and international panels of scientists which have extensively, and expensively, studied ways to mitigate global warming through schemes called "geo-engineering."
Edward Teller, father of the hydrogen bomb and Associate Director of LLNL, actually advocated putting up a "sunscreen" to save the Earth. He proposed injecting aluminum and barium dust particles high into the atmosphere to increase the amount of solar energy being reflected out into space as a way to offset the heating by greenhouse gases.
Many scientific boards and committees have looked into this proposal and found it technologically feasible, but recognized that the legal and environmental hurdles would be too high to overcome to implement such a project--if done openly, so some proposed doing it covertly.
Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025 is a study designed to comply with a directive from the chief of staff of the Air Force to examine the concepts, capabilities, and technologies the United States will require to remain the dominant air and space force in the future. Presented on 17 June 1996, this report was produced in the Department of Defense school environment of academic freedom and in the interest of advancing concepts related to national defense.
