This book covers the 130-year history of military, scientific and commercial efforts at controlling Mother Nature. The furor over cloud seeding above the Ho Chi Min Trail during the Viet Nam War lead to a 1978 UN treaty banning the use of all environmental processes (weather, earthquakes, tidal waves, etc.) as weapons of war.
After signing that treaty US research allocations dropped from $140 million a year to zero – did Uncle Sam really abandon this research, or did the whole program go “black”?
A lengthy chapter on the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) contains the most up to date material now available in book form, including how it might have played a role in the destruction of the Space Shuttle Columbia. Smith spends 100 pages on “chemtrails” focusing on “geoengineering” – a scheme to use particles intentionally released into the upper atmosphere to mitigate global warming. All this and much more!
