Uncanny predictive programming from 1959
Disney works with the Department of Defense to popularize a future of engineered weather and hurricanes using satellites, drones, rockets and ground-based electromagnetic seeding.
1959 Plans to Engineer a Warmer Climate
Most interesting is the plan to terraform frozen polar regions into lush temperate zones using atmospheric warming technologies.
EYES in OUTER SPACE – Release Date, June 18, 1959
The Hurricane Engineering sequence is quite lengthy. In one maneuver, a salvo of “vapor rockets” is launched to 42,000 feet ahead of the predicted path of the storm where “artificial clouds will prevent the sun from evaporating more water to feed the hurricane.” It’s easy to imagine that “vapor” from persistent jet contrails is an alternate method of creating artificial cirrus clouds to control “evaporation”.
Most interesting is the plan to terraform frozen areas of the north into lush temperate zones with artificial warming. Another is controlling rainfall to turn deserts into forests and farmland.
ON ENGINEERING HURRICANES
Despite the $Billions in destruction from dozens of recent hurricanes, NOAA, NASA, DHS and US military seem to be in no hurry to find a way to mitigate future death and destruction. Perhaps there’s more money in allowing hurricanes to do as they please or even help them along by increasing their destructive power.
Will the 2017 catastrophes created by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria get the attention of the President Trump and Congress to prioritize funding for hurricane mitigation procedures? Or is there more quick profit for the 1% elite in Disaster Capitalism?
A recent paper on hurricane mitigation sites “funding” as the barrier. This publication (On Engineering Hurricanes) is in response to the 2009 Hurricane Aerosols and Microphysics Program (HAMP) sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
The HAMP presentation to the American Meteorological Society (AMS) was an outgrowth of a 2008 Hurricane Modification Workshop
Two interesting conclusions were presented at the 2010 AMS Conference:
“Small aerosols change dramatically, the cloud microphysics and dynamics, transforming deep maritime clouds into thunderstorms”
“Under certain circumstances carbon black may actually increase hurricane intensity”
The critique of the DHS HAMP initiative is contained in “On Engineering Hurricanes” by William R. Cotton and Stephen M. Saleeby Department of Atmospheric Science, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO.
Although the authors conceded there is some suggestion there is potential for weakening TC’s by seeding them small CCN the thrust of the conclusion is mostly negative:
“…the response is by no means monotonic with increasing aerosol and certainly not as spectacular as suggested by Cotton et al. (2007), particularly for a mature TC that is within 60h of land-fall. Nonetheless these simulations do not directly simulate small particle hygroscopic seeding beneath active spiral rainbands outward of 45km radius where
the strongest response is observed in Zhang et al’s. (2007) simulations.”
