There’s a baffling disconnect between the world of science and mainstream society. How many folks don’t realize weather modification ‘is A thing’ as the modern parlance goes. It’s been a thing FOREVER! It’s an enormous field of research and EXPERIMENTATION with its own conferences, journals, corporations, market speculations, and the usual establishment lies and manipulations that go with that crucial institutionalized status.
From the current President of the Journal of Weather Modification, who recently celebrated their 50th Anniversary:
“Another goal of mine was to increase the membership of the international community. This issue is still a work in progress, but with the help of some of our more prominent international members, I hope the tide will turn. Weather Modification IS an international activity and is ongoing across the globe in terms of operations projects and research. My hope, is that the international weather modification community is as equally as curious about the WMA as we are about them!”
Governments around the world don’t know about this thriving global industry? The Australian government currently can’t find the technological or financial resources to cloud seed over their devastating fires? The U.S. government isn’t benefitting from any of the myriad technologies for causing floods, droughts, tornadoes, hail, or prevention of such weather chaos?
According to the Journal of Environmental Management
“Science communication is needed to inform risk perception and action of stakeholders”
And are we not all STAKEHOLDERS when it comes to our environment?
