21st Century Wars Maybe Fought Over Water Using Weather Modification. Is It Already Happening?

The devilish parts of the predictions that the 21st centuries wars will be fought over water are swirling in the details. As the oceans warm they’re giving off more water vapor and embedded thermal energy into the atmosphere resulting in a Goldilocks scenario whereby some regions are suffering from devastating floods and landslides at the same time others are experiencing killer droughts.

For the moment the area where i live in Southwest British Columbia is Goldilocks country but just over the mountains Southwest Alberta has seen billions of dollars and a number of lives lost in floods. South of there the Southwestern US's drought is so severe the lakes have dried up, the wildlife is dying as the temps soar to record heights. Southwest China is being washed into the sea while Australia bakes in its 5th year of record drought and its native and domestic animals starve to death. As John Prine said, "First you haven't any water, the you're gonna drown. That's the way the world goes round." And it always has but now that the heat has been turned up the world's lumpy weather patterns are swirling faster.

Where, when and how much it rains is the difference between life and death and it will become increasingly important as the world's weather weirdness increases. As Matthew Watson, at Bristol University says, "Whatever we do is a compromise, and that compromise means there will be winners and losers. That opens massive ethical questions: who gets to decide how we even determine what is a good outcome for different people? How do you get a consensus with seven billion-plus stakeholders?" Answer: you don't get a consensus, you get conflict, you get war.

This isn't news to the military and corporate stakeholders who've been using weather modification techniques like cloud seeding for nearly 100 years with increasing success to determine who those winners and losers will be. Cloud seeding is happening right now on every continent. For example, the largest cloud seeding system in the world is that of China to increase rainfall over several increasingly arid regions, including its capital city, Beijing.  Indonesia uses cloud seeding to even out the rainfall in an attempt to prevent future flooding. In India, cloud seeding operations have gone on for decades to battle severe drought. The United Arab Emirates uses cloud seeding to create artificial rain in the Dubai and Abu Dhabi desert.

In the United States and Canada, cloud seeding is used to increase precipitation in areas experiencing drought, to reduce the amount of fog around airports.and by major ski resorts to induce snowfall. Cloud seeding began in France during the 1950s. Soviet military pilots seeded clouds over the Belorussian SSR after the Chernobyl disaster to remove radioactive particles from clouds heading toward Moscow. In Germany civic engagement societies organize cloud seeding on a region level.to protect agricultural areas, for example wine growing areas.

Australia seeds clouds over the Hydro-Electricity Commission catchment area on the Central Plateau to increase electricity capacity. In Africa,  Mali and Niger use cloud seeding on a national scale to enhance agricultural output. There hundreds more example of how weather modification can and does serve the positive goals of preventing damaging weather, or increasing rainfall in drought stricken areas but it can also be used to provoke damaging weather against an enemy or rival, as a tactic of military or economic warfare.

During the Vietnam War the US military's Operation Popeye used cloud seeding over the Ho Chi Minh Trail, increasing rainfall by an estimated thirty percent during 1967 and 1968.in the hope that the increased rainfall would reduce the rate of infiltration down the trail. The operation seeded clouds with silver iodide [still commonly used globally]. The motto of the 54th Weather Reconnaissance Squadron who carried out the operation was: "make mud, not war."

In reaction to operation Popeye weather modification techniques such as cloud seeding for military purposes were banned in 1978 by the United Nations. The treaty was signed by almost every UN member country including the US after the words prohibiting "widespread, long-lasting or severe effects as the means of destruction, damage or injury".were added. Of course the Pentagon now argues that this permits "local, non-permanent changes". Weather modification technologies are now described by military analysts as "a force multiplier with tremendous power that could be exploited across the full spectrum of war-fighting environments."

The wars of the 21st century will be fought not only over who gets water and when but will also be fought by using weather modification as a weapon to starve the people and destroy the ecosystem of the 'enemy'. The Pentagon and undoubtedly other military establishments around the globe are already to looking into this at the very least. Out with Star Wars, in with Climate Wars. Is China giving us trouble? Send them a drought. Is Russia being difficult? How about a massive heat wave accompanied by flooding?

Environmental warfare fought with weather modification techniques is the ultimate occult type of warfare. Think about it. Our best scientists can't state with any certainty that our recent and obvious extreme weather events are caused by global warming how could they possibly prove that a drought in China, or a flood in Iran, or any other extreme weather event was the result of weather modification. Maybe the wars have already started?  How would we know.
