Flashback: CBS News segment on ‘Controlling the weather’ – ‘How to change the weather on purpose’ by ‘firing trillion watt lasers into the sky’

Michio Kaku, a physics professor at City College of New York: “Even in [the] sixties, the CIA used this to bring down monsoons during the Vietnam War to wash out the Vietcong.”

Kaku: “Instead of doing a rain dance, we physicists are firing trillion watt lasers into the sky to actually precipitate rain clouds and actually bring down lightning bolts. This is potentially a game-changer.”

“It is experimental, however in the laboratory, so far it works when you have water vapor and you have dust particles or ice crystals. You can precipitate rain. It condenses around the seeds. These seeds can also be created by laser beams by firing trillion watt lasers you rip apart the electrons creating what I call ions and these ions act like seeds like dust particles bringing down rain and even lightning.”  

CBS News anchor Nora O’Donnell: “They were talking about climate change yesterday and now we’re learning that scientists and researchers are looking at how to change the weather on purpose. That’s right. Lasers now could one day manipulate rain and lightning.”

WSJ: Can the Climate Heal Itself? Dissenters from the catastrophe consensus on warming are worth listening to Can the Climate Heal Itself? – Dissenters from the catastrophe consensus on warming are worth listening to. By Andy Kessler Excerpt: But what if the entire premise is wrong? What if the Earth is self-healing? Before you hurl the “climate denier” invective at me, let’s think this through. Earth has been around for 4.5 […]

We’re saved! Shading the Earth with moon dust to cool the planet! Could help reduce solar radiation to mitigate climate change claims study A recent study suggests that moon dust might help slow the rise in Earth’s temperature caused by climate change.  Scientists at the University of Utah explored the potential of using the lunar particles to shield sunlight before it reaches our planet. For decades, researchers have considered using screens, objects or dust particles to block just enough of the sun’s radiation – between 1% and 2% – to mitigate the effects […]

‘Climate change could see clouds disappear from the earth forever, scientists warn’ By Shane Jarvis Researchers harness super-computer that could predict much more accurately what could happen to our weather systems Scientists have issued one of their starkest warnings yet over climate change, suggesting that clouds could be wiped away from our skies, potentially forever. Using global models based on computer algorithms, the researchers appeared to […]

Where have all the Clouds gone and why care? Global cloud cover decline over past 40 years By Charles Blaisdell PhD ChE The earth’s cloud cover has long been an important puzzle in climate change.  Cloud cover has many types and varies significantly from year to year.  Ground records of global cloud cover over 40 years have shown a 0.41%/decade (8) decrease in cloud cover. (A 37-year European only study (16) found a 1.4%/decade decrease). […]

Cloud seeding gains steam as West faces worsening droughts: ‘Releasing plumes of silver iodide to cause ice crystals to form & snow’ By Maddie Stone As the first winter storms rolled through this month, a King Air C90 turboprop aircraft contracted by the hydropower company Idaho Power took to the skies over southern Idaho to make it snow. Flying across the cloud tops, the aircraft dropped flares that burned as they descended, releasing plumes of silver […]

New Doubts on Climatic Effects of Ocean Currents, Clouds By Physicist Dr. Ralph Alexander Recent research has cast doubt on the influence of two watery entities – ocean currents and clouds – on future global warming. But, unlike many climate studies, the two research papers are grounded in empirical observations rather than theoretical models. The first study examined so-called deep water formation in […]

Physicist: How Clouds Hold the Key to Global Warming By Physicist Dr. Ralph Alexander One of the biggest weaknesses in computer climate models – the very models whose predictions underlie proposed political action on human CO2 emissions – is the representation of clouds and their response to global warming. The deficiencies in computer simulations of clouds are acknowledged even by climate modelers. Yet cloud […]

Do clouds control the climate? Global Temperatures Rose As Cloud Cover Fell In the 1980s and 90s

Global Temperatures Rose As Cloud Cover Fell In the 1980s and 90s By Paul Homewood We’ve been discussing the sudden rise in UK and European temperatures in the 1990s, and I was reminded about a study undertaken by Clive Best and Euan Mearns looking at the role of cloud cover four years ago: Clouds […]
