Is The CIA Manipulating The Weather?


By Derrick Broze

In a recent speech, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency discussed the controversial topic of geoengineering, leading some activists to ask whether the agency is actively and deliberately modifying the weather.

In late June, John Brennan, director of the Central Intelligence Agency, spoke at a Council on Foreign Relations meeting about threats to global security. Director Brennan mentioned a number of threats to stability before discussing the science of geoengineering. Brennan said the technologies “potentially could help reverse the warming effects of global climate change.”

According to a 2013 congressional report:

The term ‘geoengineering’ describes this array of technologies that aim, through large-scale and deliberate modifications of the Earth’s energy balance, to reduce temperatures and counteract anthropogenic climate change. Most of these technologies are at the conceptual and research stages, and their effectiveness at reducing global temperatures has yet to be proven. Moreover, very few studies have been published that document the cost, environmental effects, socio-political impacts, and legal implications of geoengineering. If geoengineering technologies were to be deployed, they are expected to have the potential to cause significant transboundary effects.

In general, geoengineering technologies are categorized as either a carbon dioxide removal (CDR) method or a solar radiation management (SRM) (or albedo-modification)method. CDR methods address the warming effects of greenhouse gases by removing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. CDR methods include ocean fertilization, and carbon capture and sequestration. SRM methods address climate change by increasing the reflectivity of the Earth’s atmosphere or surface.

Aerosol injection and space-based reflectors are examples of SRM methods. SRM methods do not remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, but can be deployed faster with relatively immediate global cooling results compared to CDR methods.

Director Brennan specifically mentions a type of SRM known as stratospheric aerosol injection, or SAI. As Brennan notes, SAI is “a method of seeding the stratosphere with particles that can help reflect the sun’s heat, in much the same way that volcanic eruptions do.”

Brennan goes on to claim that an SAI geoengineering program could limit global temperature increases, a claim that has been disputed in several studies. For example, Activist Post recently reported on a new analysis released by the Finnish Meteorological Institute. The FMI is the government agency responsible for reporting weather data and forecasts in Finland. The Institute’s study, “Modelling radiative and climate effects of aerosols: from Anthropogenic emissions to geoengineering,” examined the potential for SRM to combat climate change.

The study specifically looked at two types of SRM. The first involved marine aerosol concentrations use to increase clouds, while the second looked at increasing the amount of sulphur concentrated in the stratosphere. The researchers stated that their key objectives were to “investigate the potential of aerosols to cool the climate at the global scale, and identify the possible limits in the effectiveness of the Solar Radiation Management techniques as well as the risks related to these techniques.”

The researchers found that the geoengineering techniques which were studied do in fact have the potential to cool the climate and slow down warming. “However, the cooling effect has limitations,” the team writes.“The cooling effect attributable to aerosols would be rather small due to the geographical change in tropospheric aerosol emissions or change in energy production studied here when compared to the warming due to the increased greenhouse gas emissions,” the paper states.

In other words, the effort, money, and time it would take to invest and create geoengineering methods would likely do very little to actually limit the amount of greenhouse gas emissions. The researchers even state that, based on their models, if the world replaced coal with nuclear power for energy production it would lead to a “temporal cooling effect,” but after several years “the warming effect from simultaneously increased GHG emission would exceed the cooling effect.” Also, the cooling that does result from an increase in aerosols is “often achieved at the cost of air quality” which could “lead to an increase in premature mortality.”

In February 2015, an international committee of scientists released a report stating that geoengineering techniques are not a viable alternative to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to combat the effects of climate change. The committee report called for further research and understanding of various geoengineering techniques, including carbon dioxide removal schemes and solar-radiation management before implementation.

The scientists found that SRM techniques are likely to present “serious known and possible unknown environmental, social, and political risks, including the possibility of being deployed unilaterally.” The report was sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences, the U.S. intelligence community, NASA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the U.S. Department of Energy.

According to a 2013 study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres, if geoengineering programs were started and then suddenly halted, the planet could see an immediate rise in temperatures, particularly over land. The study, titled, “The Impact of Abrupt Suspension of Solar Radiation Management,” seems to indicate that once geoengineering begins, the programs cannot be suspended without causing the very problem the engineering was intended to solve.

Conspiracy Fact or Theory?

The idea that aerosols could be sprayed from planes is eerily reminiscent of various conspiracies involving the government using weather control technology to manipulate world events. This is what is derogatorily called the “Chemtrails Conspiracy.” Essentially, some believe geoengineering is actively taking place in our skies, and the “contrails” are actually geoengineering programs covertly being carried out. The “chemtrails” label comes from the portion of the crowd that believes these programs are delivering dangerous chemical additives to the food, water, soil, and humans below for nefarious purposes.

Despite the knee-jerk dismissal from many casual researchers, the theories might be grounded in reality. In February 2015, while speaking at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in San Jose, California, Professor Alan Robock discussed the possibility that the CIA is using the weather as a weapon of war. Robock has done research for the intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC) in the past.

Robock stated he was phoned by two men claiming to be from the CIA, asking whether or not it was possible for hostile governments to use geoengineering against the United States.

Professor Robock’s fears of the government using the weather as a weapon are not completely unfounded. In a 1996 document entitled “Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather by 2025”  the U.S. Air Force discusses a number of proposals for using the weather as a weapon. The Environmental Modification Treaty was signed by the United States and other nations to halt global weather modification.

But the government did not simply research these ideas, they actually implemented them. During the Vietnam War the US government operated covert weather modification programs under Operation Popeye. The government does not only experiment with technology in foreign countries, they like to try it at home as well. In 2012 it was revealed that the US Army sprayed toxic chemicals over the skies of St. Louis without informing the public.

Whether or not Professor Robock’s theory is correct remains to be seen; but for now, Director Brennan’s speech makes it perfectly clear that America’s favorite spy agency is interested in manipulating the weather on a global scale. Whether it’s happening already or will be in the near future, the thought of the CIA (or any agency of government) using the weather as a weapon of war should make it clear that the U.S. government is not operating with reason or concern for the people.

  1. What really worries me is that given we’re essentially electrical beings… and given all the metals which have been incorporated into our bodies from years of spraying… and given all the cell towers they’ve deployed to develop the soup of wifry we’re swimming in….., one day some very mad men could cause the introduction of a pulse or series of signals into this soup which could vibrate these metals in our bodies and cause a lot if not all metalicized people in the target area(s) to become very ill or very dead or very violent or maybe just very docile and politically correct.
    It might be happening right now.

  2. I do not know if the rest of the world went to sleep, there is a HAARP ANTENNA in ALASKA that is a weather controller and weapon, they have built another 17 of them around the world, they were and still are controlled by DAVID ROCKERFELLER, they used this weapon three years ago in LEYTE in the PHILLIPPINES, and caused a tornado that killed thousands of people, so that the US MILITARY could have the airport at the end of the island, and over 116 years the US has killed millions of people in the PHILLIPPINES, and none of these antenna’s are lying idle, I don’t care if they call me crazy, the WEATHER is being controlled big time very much in the UK and many other places around EUROPE.

    • its being controlled all over the world hense the extreme weather conditions of drought, flooding etc. It traps in the heat and therefore cause problems. The fallout of these chemicals is destroying the air,soil etc and human health…..epidemic disease….gee I wonder why”??????? We are being totally lied to at every level of our life. Destroy globalism and take back our planet and all will be well until they rise up again…..and we have to stop that.

    • You’re not crazy. The US Air Force is on record saying they will “own the weather by 2025” – google it…

  3. So they need to spend how much to “reverse” the effect that they are creating in the first place? The powers behind this are lame in having to “create” these ideas and plans to generate their billions of $$. If they just put these $$ into education, better infrastructure across the planet and just plain stop this meddling with the environment amongst other things, people would be happier, healthier and more productive, giving these imbeciles their billions anyways…

  4. brennen is a muslime

  5. derogatorily called the “Chemtrails Conspiracy.”- empirical evidence is the truth that theory must mimic. Condensation trails do not turn a blue sky a sickly looking gray/white, the chemtrails do , on a routine basis. Contrails are water vapor that turns to ice, and is gone in a few moments. No mention of the poisons that are used like aluminum,barium,and strontium. If people would take their noses out of their phone screens for awhile,they might see this.

    Check out geoengineeringwatch dot org for good info the the deliberate poisoning going on.

  6. Water vapor is by far the WORST of the ‘greenhouse gases’…methane and nitrogen are next and CO2 might be 4th or 5th. ‘Persistent contrails’ supposing these idiots are right are obviously water vapor. Helllllooooo? Even naysaying scientists (the ones that need federal grants of course) will admit those ‘trails’ are made of water vapor…WHICH IS FAR WORSE THAN ANY CO2. This anthropogenic CO2 problem is the biggest scam known to man!!

    Would someone else please go on STACK EXCHANGE; EARTH SCIENCE and ask intelligent non-inflammatory questions about chemtrails? Don’t use the word chemtrail…to be able to get your foot in the door say “Geoengineering, persistent contrails, weather control, weather control patents”…expect to be put down in a big way!! That would be a nice forum to ‘turn’ to ‘educate’ in a positive vein for us the peons…that site gets used an awful lot!!

    I really don’t think TPTB care about us at all to include deliberate poisoning. Too much work and risk exposure? Wake EVERYONE? As a side benefit, sure. TPTB want to control the weather to include HAARP and its subsidiaries AND all chemtrails. TPTB don’t want to raise any bile against THEM so they are happy to kill us off slowly, yet they don’t want to ruin their OWN WORLD THEIR OWN GARDEN. and they certainly need us to do the labor and keep the ‘machine’ turning, running and us in our own little fantasies of WONDERFUL AMERICA the beautiful…if we work hard and long enough we’ll be rich, we will be honored! What more could a slave that has to care for ITSELF want? Truly we are slaves…always have been.

    • High altitude crop dusting, who can argue with that?
      Yep the drought has been successfully recontinued. Several days of complete cover, and high pressure sets in. Would not doubt that the cover gets beamed in order to heat it properly to get the high pressure to set in.


  8. I don’t know about the CIA but the US Air Force is on record saying that they will “own the weather by 2025” – it’s no secret but they still demonize anyone who tries to bring this BS to light.
    I noticed my first “persistent contrails” in Portland, OR – 1999
    Then as an OTR driver from 2000-2005 I saw a lot of weird things in Eastern Washington skies and the skies of desolate parts of Neveda.
    There are too many folks with their eyes glued to these Smart Phones (an oxymoron if there ever was one) these days for there to be any hope of an awakening.

  9. No—That’s handled by the Airforce and Navy

  10. ☺?????
