Landstrike is the gripping story of Hurricane Nicole from its birth in the Altantic Ocean to its catastrophic rampage up New York City’s Hudson River. It is also an enthralling account of the horrific storm’s aftermath as residents, suddenly isolated from the world without electricity, food, water and even communications try to survive in Stone Age conditions!
This fictional book wasn’t far off the mark, with one big caveat: the author didn’t take weather modification into consideration. Truth is stranger than fiction, so brace yourself for the true story of the climate engineers that seek to control mother natures’ raw fury; the hurricane.
I live in South Carolina, and hurricanes have been always been a part of my life. Back in 1989, Hurricane Hugo leveled my hometown of Sumter, South Carolina. Hugo, a Category 4 hurricane with 135 mph winds, the second strongest hurricane (since reliable records began in 1851) to hit the U.S. East Coast north of Florida. We came together as a community, had coffee and breakfast made on a gas grill, smelled terribly for days, even ate at the Red Cross shelter a time or two. My father, my brother and I spent two weeks travelling through neighborhoods clearing the roads with our chainsaws, and despite the destruction, I remember the aftermath fondly.
Anyone who’s been through a hurricane knows the danger and would give anything to see the hurricane bounce right back out to sea. Oddly enough, that seems to be happening with increasing abundance. Time and time again, the hurricanes take their usual track, only to suddenly boomerang back from whence they came. Odd behavior indeed. What if I told you the Department of Homeland Security was interested in just this sort of thing:
So let’s quickly cover the history of scientists screwing with hurricanes and end with their latest handiwork in part 2: Hurricane Sandy.
Project Stormfury 1960
Q: What happened to the idea of seeding hurricanes to weaken them?
A: During the 1960s the U.S. Navy and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) tried a more sophisticated way of making hurricanes weaker. This research was known as Project Stormfury. The basic idea was to seed clouds just outside the eye wall with silver iodide. The silver iodide, which is widely used in cloud seeding, encourages supercooled water – water that’s colder than 32 degrees F but is liquid, not ice – to freeze. This releases latent heat, which would make the clouds grow, stealing some of the humid air that’s helping the eye wall clouds grow and create strong winds.
This seemed to work with Hurricane Beulah in 1963 and Hurricane Debbie in 1969. But, scientists had no way of knowing whether these two storms would have weakened any way at that time. Hurricanes often weaken and then regain strength naturally. Also, since the 1980s researchers have found that most hurricanes don’t have enough supercooled water for seeding to work.
Concerns were also raised that the experiments could make a storm change course, hitting some place that it otherwise wouldn’t. The experiments did increase hurricane knowledge and also led to the purchase of the two WP-3 airplanes that NOAA still uses for hurricane research and tracking.
Bob Sheets, the retired director of the National Hurricane Center, and I have an entire chapter on Project Stormfury in our book, Hurricane Watch: Forecasting the Deadliest Storms on Earth. Bob was the last director of Stormfury.
Q: Is trying to modify hurricanes such a good idea after all?
A: Today, scientists are more cautious about trying to modify the weather than they were during the 1960s. Hurricanes, along with other storms and ocean currents, help balance the Earth’s heat budget. Trying to change hurricanes could have consequences that no one intended.
Hurricane Katrina 2005
After Hurricane Katrina, the university-military-industrial complex got their way, and the Department of Homeland Security commissioned studies to divert or diminish hurricanes.
The Hurricane Modification Workshop was initiated by Under Secretary Jay Cohen, DHS S&T, to investigate the possibility of minimizing the tremedous loss of life, property, and economic stability by reducing the destructive forces of a hurricane. This may be accomplished by modifying its track, speed, winds, and rain.
“CARBON BLACK MAY INCREASE THE INTENSITY OF HURRICANES”
“But if we can decrease the intensity of a hurricane from a level five to a level four, then the amount of damage can be dramatically reduced.”
The senior official responsible for science and technology at the Department of Homeland Security, Jay Cohen, has given his support to the new hurricane reduction programme, which is expected to receive funding in October for the first phase of research.
The project has been given an estimated price tag of around $64m (£32m) over six years. Scientists will first conduct tests using models and small scale experiments before the most promising idea is developed for large scale testing.
Hurricane Aerosol and Microphysics Program (HAMP) 2010
NASA Genesis and Rapid Intensification Processes (GRIP) 2010
In less than two weeks, NASA scientists will begin their quest for the holy grail of hurricane research.
The exact conditions required to kickstart a tropical depression into a hurricane largely remain a mystery. Though scientists know many of the ingredients needed, it is unclear what processes ultimately drive depressions to form into the intense, spinning storms that lash the U.S. coasts each summer.
“Hurricane formation and intensification is really the ‘holy grail’ of this field,” said Ed Zipser, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Utah and one of three program scientists helping to lead the Genesis and Rapid Intensification Processes (GRIP)Project.
“We want to see storms that become hurricanes, and we want to see some that don’t become hurricanes, so we can compare the data. The same is true for hurricane intensification.” ~ GRIP Project Manager Marilyn Vasques
HIWRAP is a new, advanced radar instrument that will allow NASA scientists to measure surface winds above the ocean inside a hurricane. Lihua Li (left), Goddard Space Flight Center engineer, Steve Crowell (sitting), Northrop Grumman mechanic, and Ken Wilson (kneeling) NASA’s Global Hawk crew chief, worked earlier this week to integrate the HIWRAP instrument onto NASA’s Global Hawk.
HIWRAP is one of 14 instruments that will be deployed on three NASA aircraft during GRIP. Image credit: NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center.
HAARP, Satellites, and Hurricanes, oh my!
Inspired by Nikola Tesla’s “Wireless Transmission of Electricity”, Bernard Eastlund (creator of HAARP) envisioned pumping natural gas from the ground, converting it to an electrical signal, and broadcasting that energy to an aircraft carrier, plane, or military base over the horizon (more on this in part 2, link at the end of this article.) He’s also trying to build satellites for the specific purpose of geoengineering storms:
At the very least, we know that the USAF is actively seeking space-based weather modification technology, if it isn’t already available:
The damage done to New Orleans in 2005 has spurred two rival teams of climate experts, in America and Israel, to redouble their efforts to enable people to play God with the weather.

In 1968 the US military proposed Solar Powered Satellites in geostationary orbit some 40,000 km above the earth, which would intercept solar radiation using solar cells on satellites and transmit it via a microwave beam to receiving antennas, called rectennas, on earth. The US Congress mandated the Department of Energy and NASA to prepare an Environmental Impact Assessment on this project, to be completed by June 1980, and costing $25 Million. This project was designed to construct 60 Solar Powered Satellites over a thirty year period at a cost between $500 and $800 thousand million (in 1968 dollars), providing 10% of the US energy needs in the year 2025 at a cost of $3000 per kW. At that time, the project cost was two to three
times larger than the whole Department of Energy budget, and the projected cost of the electricity was well above the cost of most conventional energy sources. The rectenna sites on earth were expected to take up to 145 square
kilometres of land, and would preclude habitation by any humans, animals or even vegetation. Each Satellite was to be the size of Manhattan Island.
All the details on SPS and HAARP can be found here.
President Carter (not Lil Wayne) approved the SPS Project and gave it a go-ahead, in spite of the reservation which many reviewers, myself included, expressed. Fortunately, it was so expensive, exceeding the entire Department of Energy budget, that funding was denied by the Congress. I approached the United Nations Committee on Disarmament on this project, but was told that as long as the program was called Solar Energy by the United States, it could not be considered a weapons project. The same project resurfaced in the US under President Reagan, moved to the much larger budget of the Department of Defence, and called Star Wars. Since this is more recent history, I will not discuss the debate which raged over this phase of the plan.

RAYTHEON LOBBYING GOVERNMENT AGENCIES AND COMPANIES TO COME TO CONSENSUS ON WEATHER MODIFICATION
Weather Modification Association Annual Meeting, 2005
Defense Advanced Research Program Association, or DARPA, has contracted co-operation command of the Highly Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) electromagnetic microwave ionospheric heater in Gakona, Alaska, for military communication and weapon “defense” purposes. They also take part in biological warfare “testing” over land, water, and city, whereby defense contractor jets, such as those crafted especially for war or weather programs by BAE Systems (owner of the HAARP facility) or Raytheon (owner of the HAARP patent), for the Navy and Air Force and NATO, disperse hazardous toxins into the air and then attempt to eradicate them with chemicals or jet-mounted microwave radiation weapons (like AESA). In addition, the Lockheed Martin and Boeing corporations joined up in a B2B contract with BAE and Raytheon, hardware and software hosted by none other than Microsoft, so that their defense contractor industry market could remain consistently and wirelessly networked, and would never be halted by distance, time, or situational awareness. The NOAA, a member of the Weather Modification Operations and Research Board, (partnered on that board with the American Meteorological Society and the National Science Foundation) sold its weather reporting functionality to Raytheon, who operates it now under the name Advanced Weather Information Processing System. Raytheon happens to contract many of its services and industrial airliners to the tune of global weather modification programs, such as those ever popular “global warming mitigation” or “global dimming” programs, (whereby jets utilizing liquid propane, liquid nitrogen, silver iodide, potassium chlorate, barium oxide, acrylamides, and trimethyl aluminum, spray these chemicals to replace cloud cover over entire countries) and, they’ve even managed to create, through their sub-company General Dynamics Robotics, Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles such as the Global Hawk that can fly for 72 hours, with a payload of 20,000 lbs or more, running entirely on programming and artificial intelligence microwave signal networking, without landing or refueling. It’s not just local chemical “cloud seeding” or “storm prevention” anymore, as is still practiced by the state-and-regional program member companies of the Weather Modification Association.
THE GLOBAL WEATHER NETWORK
Now let’s focus on a single part, the GWN on page 9:
The GWN is the Global Weather Network, which consists of NEXRAD doppler radars and just about every single piece of weather monitoring equipment in the world that has a data-sharing agreement with the USA or its agencies. See:
The plan was to have this thing operational by 2025, however they seem to be ahead of schedule. Now let me show you the power of this fully operational Death Star:
The Raytheon “Joint Environmental Toolkit”
Air Force Weather Weapon System, java/Google Earth based integrated data viewer.
The Electronic System Center’s Weather Systems Division recently awarded a contract modification worth more than $9 million to Raytheon for Phase II of the Joint Environment Toolkit contract.
JET is the next generation weather system intended to integrate, extend and potentially replace multiple existing Air Force Weather Weapon System components with a single integrated system.
HEY! That looks just like my Google Earth website: ClimateViewer 3D.
A coincidence, I’m sure.
The fact you should take with you is this:
If hurricane geoengineering is happening, many agencies are involved, and the US Air Force has a front row seat. We know that just about every acronym’d agency in the US government is involved in weather modification. We know that the Weather Modification Association, US Air Force, NOAA, NASA, and Raytheon are working very closely. We know that HAARP can modify the weather, and we know that many experiments are being conducted on hurricanes, without public oversight. What who owns HAARP?
Raytheon owns HAARP, which is managed by the Air Force Research Lab, Office of Naval Research, DARPA, and the Stanford VLF Group. Well, that and, both Raytheon and the USAF AFRL kinda make it obvious they are modifying the weather with HAARP.

Pretty obvious right?
SO WHAT IS HAARP?
From Margaret Cheney’s “Tesla, Man out of Time.”
Tesla’s basic idea was revisited by Atlantic Richfield Oil Company’s consultant physicist Bernard Eastlund, who sought a less expensive way to transmit natural gas from remote areas. He proposed a “pipeline” in the sky, using natural gas to power microwave transmitters. The microwaves would be sped great distances through the ionosphere, then beamed down to satellites and converted to electrical power on earth.
So HAARP is a World Wide WIFI device, able to transmit its beams over continents, with the intention being the delivery of large amounts of electricity to power the target. SCARY! Sounds like a lightning weapon to me.
Carbon Black to create cirrus cloud cover? The Cloud Modification section is an admission of USAF CHEMTRAILS (another below)!
In fact, the Air Force has admitted they’re seeking to locally modify weather to create artificial cloud cover to protect against directed-energy weapons and satellite imagery.
The United States needs to incorporate the defense against directed energy weapons with the same intensity used developing anti-ballistic missile defenses. One of the major drawbacks to optical or directed energy systems is the inability to penetrate clouds or dense fog. Advances in technology are beginning to bring weather phenomena under our control.
… These perturbations allow for the immediate and lasting ability to create localized fog or stratus cloud formations shielding critical assets against attack from energy based weapons. The future of nanotechnology will enable creation of stratus cloud formations to defeat DEW and optically targeted attacks on United Sates assets.
This PDF contains a Christmas list of Weather Control schemes the US Air Force would love to get there hands on.
Things the USAF can do now (1996)
- Directed Energy (lasers and microwave)
- Artificial Ionospheric Mirrors (HAARP & MIRAGE see below)
- Smart Clouds (nanontechnology?)
- Chemicals (Chemtrails, cloud seeding) with Aerospace Delivery Vehicles (drones and planes)
- The Global Weather Network (more below)
- Sensors, Computer Modelling, and Communications.
- Carbon Black Dust (2005, Katrina?)
How does HAARP’s Artificial Ionospheric Mirror work?
HAARP heats a portion of the ionosphere using either two high-power microwave sources, previously HAARP and HIPAS, now HAARP and the AMISR (more specifically, the Poker Flats AMISR (known as PFISR) has probably moved to the Gakona, Alaska HAARP facility.

(c) means for controlling phase of the individual radiators to scan said phased array heater antenna.
TWO WAYS TO MAKE AN IONOSPHERIC MIRROR

The resulting “ionospheric lens” looks like this:

The Microwave Ionosphere Reconfiguration Ground-based Emitter (MIRAGE)
Air Force Aims for Weather Control by MURDOC on FEBRUARY 8, 2006
The work involves using plasma, an ionized gas, to reconfigure the ionosphere. MIRAGE would employ a microwave transmitter on the ground and a small rocket that shoots chaff into the air to produce about a liter of plasma at 60–100 km. (36– 60 mi.) in altitude, changing the number of electrons in a select area of the ionosphere to create a virtual barrier. Ionosphere reconfiguration offers two major applications of interest to the military: bouncing radars off the ionosphere, also known as over-the-horizon radar, and the ability to jam signals from the Global Positioning Satellite system, according to John Kline, the lead investigator for MIRAGE.
This work is only the latest effort in Kline’s more extensive investigations of atmospheric plasma. Before MIRAGE, Kline had another contract for a project called Plasma Point Defense, which explored the possibility of using a plasma weapon on board a U.S. Navy surface vessel to protect against threats ranging from surface-to-surface missiles to mortars and rocket-propelled grenades. PROJECT-MIRAGE-Plasma-Gas
It would stand to reason that if all you need is some rocket exhaust and a high powered microwave to modify the weather, then it may be possible that a combination of persistent contrails (laden with metals, usually derivatives of jet fuel additives) and radars like OTH-B. the US Navy ROTHR, SuperDARN, hell even NEXRAD dual polarization doppler radars may be able to modify the weather in the troposphere?
There is more than enough evidence that concentrated heating from any of these devices in concert with the right mix of metal shavings (intentional cloud seeding) in addition to inadvertent cloud seeding from pollution would have a significant impact on either taming or strengthening hurricanes.
The only question left is, what does any of this have to do with Hurricane Sandy?
History repeats itself: 10/27/2012 — Hurricane Sandy MICROWAVE ANOMALY
Last year, Hurricane Irene, August 26, 2011, we saw a microwave “anomaly” interfere with the center of the storm:
Flash forward to the present, and we’re getting deja-vu. Large microwave-anomaly followed by radar flashing in North Carolina.
Whereas I would normally say this is just a graphical glitch, the red anomaly appears to actually be affecting the storm. The storm walls regain strength after this anomaly disappears.
Again, North Carolina, NEXRAD radar “RAX” in Clayton, NC 27520 greets the hurricane with a huge flash:
Here are the photos I took on October 26, 2012 when I believe they were seeding the west side of the storm:
Posted by Monday, October 29th, 2012
NASA used various weather modifying technology to develop, intensify and steer a hurricane. The available technology included a powerful microwave radiometer and a “radar” and a NASA-designed and built lidar (laser radar). The laser radar were mounted on a Global Hawks and were used to heat the top of a hurricane– to weaken a hurricane and steer them. The “radar” that NASA used was the Sea-Based X-Band Radar - a floating, self-propelled, military controlled and operated mobile radar station capable of operating in high winds and heavy seas. The Sea-Based X-Band Radar Platform (SBX) is part of the U.S. Defense Department Ballistic Missile Defense System.

Many companies and government agencies have a stake in hurricane mitigation. I do not agree with companies experimenting on monster storms, only to hide behind a veil of anonymity when it comes time to asses the damage and who’s to blame. The best laid schemes of mice and men often end in an epic fail.
The Department of Homeland Security may want to mitigate damages caused by hurricanes, but that is not the Air Forces agenda. Their plans make it clear, they want to OWN THE WEATHER and USE IT AS A WEAPON. When you see all these experiments funded in the name of safety being tied to HAARP, an Air Force directed-energy weapon, you know the information the military gains will one day soon be used to weaponize the weather. This guy gets it, you should too:
So the question is still there: Is HAARP the source of these microwave anomalies or are their satellites firing away with their lazor beams? Is the USAF, NOAA, or the NWS controlling the NEXRAD stations and causing the radar flashes? Is the flash caused by a NEXRAD showing us a satellite beam emission?
I introduce one last piece of evidence for your consideration (which was mentioned earlier in this article) as an alternative source for the microwave anomalies, and have no explanation for the NEXRAD flashes:
