First premise: There is no normal weather anywhere on earth.
Since all weather systems are interconnected, when weather in one part of the world is being manipulated by technology, then by ripple-effect it’s being manipulated by technology everywhere else.
Second premise: The earth has only ever had the same amount of precipitation. Therefore, weather modification technology doesn’t make precipitation; it takes it. At any given moment approximately 8,000 rainstorms are taking place on earth, and 45,000 thunderstorms featuring heavy rain, hail, micro-bursts, wind shear, and lightning form daily. Historical analysis of the development of cities shows that the majority of populations have generally traditionally settled in areas that are not prone to dangerous weather, but that are beneficiaries of steady, predictable, and gentle rainfalls that are conducive to healthy, sustained crop growth. Large cities around the world show us that people before us had the wisdom to observe and good sense to then choose settlement locations that were the safest and that provided the most ideal weather and waterway systems to provide optimally comfortable lifestyles and livelihoods.
Ergo: Journalists who describe extended ‘freakish’ or anomalous weather events by using the trite expression ‘new normal,’ as if weather-manipulation technology does not exist, are being grossly disingenuous and likely intentionally deceptive.
‘New normal’ was precisely the way New York Times writer Thomas Erdbrink described one of the most interesting anomalous weather case studies on earth, that which is occurring in Iran, and the focus of consideration herein.
In his 2015 article Scarred Riverbeds and Dead Pistachio Trees in a Parched Iran, Erdbrink wrote “Iran is in the grip of a seven-year drought that shows no sign of breaking and that, many experts believe, may be the new normal.”
Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad didn’t see the situation that way when in May 2011, he boldly blamed Iran’s drought on weather technology that allowed Europe to “steal” Iran’s rain. In packaging the leader’s pronouncement for his readers, Barney Henderson of the Telegraph described the Ahmedinejad’s claim as “startling,” suggesting that he was a paranoid madman who, like all Iranian leaders, continuously point to the West as a scapegoat for their own incompetence – in this case – water mismanagement.
“Iranian leaders claim on a daily basis,” Henderson scoffed, “that Western countries – led by arch-foe United States – devise ‘plots’ to undermine the Islamic republic and to impede its economic and scientific development.”
Even if Henderson accurately described characteristics of the Iranian government, considering the premises I state about weather are true, the question arises whether it is fair for Henderson to summarily dismiss Ahmedinejad’s implication as ludicrous that an enormous theft and even murder were being committed through use of technology that essentially weaponizes weather.
Iran’s drought is conspicuous for a number of reasons, and an examination of it therefore opens a terribly sad but also highly intriguing and significant study about whether weather manipulation or geoengineering indeed are and have been taking place there.
The country is primarily mountainous and has vast desert regions that during summer months can become some of the hottest areas on earth. According to a country analysis by Aquasat, Iran’s water supply has been a constant preoccupation since the beginning of the country’s recorded history thousands of years ago, but the country has built a network of dams and weirs, and its irrigation potential is about 29 percent of the cultivable area of 8.13 million hectares, of which 91.4 is irrigated by groundwater. Unlike the case in most countries, in Iran, seventy-five percent of the population resides on the mountains, where fresh-water delivery systems are complicated.
Iran by no means has ever had an easy time of irrigating its crops, and eerily, this facet alone makes intensifying their problem, through the use of weather technology, that much easier.
In considering the US-Iran relationship, for the past several decades, media inform Americans that Iran is an arch-foe. If this is the case, then the obvious question for a thoughtful journalist to ponder is why the US or European NATO countries wouldn’t utilize advanced weather weaponry to bring Iran to its axis-of-evil knees.
About the capabilities of modern weather manipulation, which is also known as geoengineering, expert Dane Wigington has stated that a rapidly increasing mountain of data makes ever more clear that almost none of us alive today have known completely natural weather, that massive covert government programs have been playing “God” with the biosphere for well over sixty years – perhaps even longer. In recent years, the scope and scale of these devastating weather-modification programs has been ramped up so much that the entire climate system and biosphere is now hanging in the balance. The lethal nature of the ongoing ‘geoengineering’ programs cannot be overstated. Life on our planet is in free fall for many reasons but, mathematically speaking, climate engineering is the greatest assault of all against life on Earth.
To what extent could this lethal nature of geoengineering be directly or indirectly affecting Iran? The US government admits that it employs weather technology that they use to steer sections of the jet stream river filled with of billions of gallons of water in the form of droplets that circulate in a fairly regular pattern in the sky. But how badly is Iran being affected by drought?
In 2013, Iran’s agricultural minister Issa Kalatantari said that Iran’s water shortage was a bigger threat to the country than either Israel or the United States were to its safety. And he pondered openly whether within thirty years Iran would become an uninhabitable ghost town if the water issue were not addressed immediately.
While most western countries use only 25 percent of their surface water for agricultural and other purposes, Iran uses 97 percent. Because surface water evaporates rapidly, Kalantatari says that Iran has only enough water to sustain the lives of 33 million, fewer than half of its 75-million citizens. Iran’s topsoil is too salty to sustain life, so along with loss of its treasured pistachios, the country is completely unable to remain self-sustaining as it has proudly been for millennia. The inevitable result is that the country will experience a massive exodus. “Approximately 50-million people, 70 percent of all Iranians, will have no choice but to leave the country,” Kalantatari said.
Clearly, unlike Ahmedinejad, Kalatantari blames Iran’s water crisis on poor government management rather than lack of rainfall. Administrative infighting, national pride in a self-sustaining nation, and religious leaders who encourage population growth have caused the country to suffer, he says. By international standards, the water situation is presently so dire in some Iranian cities, Kalatantari said, that from a “hydrology perspective” they could technically be called “dead cities.”
Accepting Kalantatari’s comments as shake-your-head, sad, transparent truth, if Iran were at war, its foe, arch or otherwise, couldn’t dream for a better outcome than that which is being achieved there through this sheer lack of rainfall, water mismanagement or both.
Taking into consideration the fact that Iran is and for decades has been continuously referred to by western and Israeli politicians and global media as a threat, then the fact that within a decade this ancient civilization – that has been able to feed itself for thousands of years – suddenly needs to undergo an exodus of half its population (the equivalent of extermination), the idea that weaponized-weather warfare may be intensifying its water woes is not far flung.
Though not publicly admitted, the US military has never made a secret of its use of weather as a weapon. Detailed documentation about the practice is easily accessible online, the most popular and informative of which is the 1996 US Air Force research paper Weather as a Force Multiplier, Owning the Weather by 2025.
The stated purpose of this document is “to outline a strategy for the use of a future weather-modification system to achieve military objectives.”
Weather modification is described in the document as being divided into two major categories: suppression and intensification of weather patterns. “The primary areas … include generation and dissipation of precipitation, clouds, and fog; modification of localized storm systems; and the use of the ionosphere and near space for space control and communications dominance. “
From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counter-space control, weather-modification offers the war-fighter a wide range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary. Current technologies that will mature over the next thirty years will offer anyone who has the necessary resources the ability to modify weather patterns and their corresponding effects. The potential benefits and power are extremely lucrative and alluring for those who have the resources to develop it. This combination of drive, motivation, and resources will eventually produce the technology.
Weather modification such as this 1996 document describes had already been employed thirty years earlier. A pilot program known as Project Popeye conducted in 1966 attempted to extend the monsoon season in Vietnam in order to increase the amount of mud on the Ho Chi Minh trail during the US Vietnam War. Manipulated monsoon-like rains would increase mud that would inhibit enemy movement. The effect was derived by dispersing a silver iodide nuclei agent by aircraft into clouds over portions of the trail winding from North Vietnam through Laos and Cambodia into South Vietnam. “Positive results” of this program led to extended operations from 1967 to 1972.
One form of weather manipulation that most people have heard of is that of the delightful-sounding cloud-seeding. Its practice, however, has always been weather-related snake oil for countries and businesses that have paid fortunes for its promised service, to no avail. In fact, cloud seeding, where it has ever been deployed, is considered responsible for drought in those same areas. Reason for the failure of silver iodide nano-particulate matter dropped into clouds to form droplets that fall to the earth (said “cloud seeding”), is that not all clouds hold enough moisture to cling to these particles; the particles are simply exceedingly fine and drift to earth – dry.
Particulate matter that moisture does cling to great volumes of water in the sky includes dust, bacteria, and viruses on dessicated blood, all revealed in microscopic examinations of the residue from chemtrails – those long white, spreading streaks of white exhaust from airplanes that usually fly in abnormal grid patterns.
To help generate rainfall, chemtrails are sprayed or plasma bombs are dropped into the atmosphere by drones or planes for several reasons, but one of which is to help geo-engineers precisely locate by radar dense rivers of moisture in the sky moving at about three hundred miles per hour, that hold billions of gallons of water.
Once detected, these sky rivers can be redirected.
Powerful high frequency beams of up to 3.6 million volts (as a point of comparison, local radio stations are generally legally allowed to beam only 50,000 watts of frequency) that originate from one of a number of radio frequency transmitter facilities, such as that of HAARP, the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program located in Gakona, Alaska. From this and other similar sites, laser thin intense energy beams are sent into the top of the ionosphere – the layer between 46 and 621 miles above earth located above the stratosphere (we live in the troposphere).
It is possible to see evidence of these beams by observing unnatural circles and square-shaped blips on meteorological radar screens. These absurd perfect shapes, rather than natural wild weather flows, reflect human-generated weather forces. The beams responsible for them direct and impact the force not only rain, but also of hurricanes, tornadoes, and even earthquakes.
The process of creating rainfall commences when intense heat of up to 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit generated by this beam causes a vacuum column to form in the ionosphere. This void instantly sucks up atmospheric moisture from the lower atmosphere. Heavy clouds laden with moisture taken from these sky river can be directed in tandem with other prevailing natural forces such as wind and lightning that interacts with metal particulate matter in the plasma. At times, the clash of heat and cold can create violent cyclones, tornadoes or hurricanes. The enormous intensely directed force of this beam when directed toward the ocean is capable of causing earthquakes powerful enough to result in tsunamis.
Thus, weather tech can shift precipitation. When a pattern of rainfall develops repeatedly in a place where it typically (say, in one hundred years) hasn’t fallen, like a desert, then, at that same time, rain will not be falling someplace where it typically does, like in a lush green valley or rain forest – or Iran.
These days, however, horrifically anomalous weather events, droughts, and floods that are occurring with historically absurd frequency are most typically ascribed by media to the two pat excuses: global warming or its twin when abnormally cold temps are the rule, climate change.
Along with ‘new normal, ‘ other simplified and overloaded terminology used to describe anomalous weather events mask realities that intelligent scientists like Ahmedinajad are completely justified in mentioning – not questioning.
Propaganda can be recognized by a trained 10-year-old child are used extensively in United Nations documentation about global warming and climate change. In the example below, this blatant verbal thrust to accept a theory can be seen to lead people to never question reasons for the strange weather, but to simply follow the final conclusion – that they load up on insurance to protect themselves from impending weather damage – damage the likes of which generations in their communities had never suffered.
The following passage from the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative recommends that everyone load up on insurance because of predictably unpredictable and powerful weather events. It features several disturbing instances of loaded language (italicized) that serve to summarily dismiss criticism of geo-engineering and potential calls for evidence in case uppity people decide to band together and point to weather manipulation as the reason they’ve all lost their homes to unnatural, never-before-experienced vicious storms.
“There is widespread agreement that effectively tackling climate change requires not only reducing green house gas emissions, but also adapting social, ecological and economic systems. With a very high degree of scientific certainty, it is expected that if there is no immediate and significant reduction in emissions, the physical impacts of climate change will be too strong to adapt to. Equally, it is expected that the climate will change no matter how successful governments and the international community are in reducing emissions. This means that certain impacts of climate change are now unavoidable, and that there is an urgent need to adapt to them. Essentially, climate change-related risks can be viewed in two categories of environmental change. The first relates to an increase in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events such as floods, storms, hurricanes and droughts. The second relates to ongoing, long-term changes including sea level rise, desertification and the disappearance of glaciers as freshwater reservoirs. To be holistic, adaptation efforts need to address both categories.”
In his 2013 article, Iran’s Water Crisis: A Bigger Threat Than Israel? Zachary Keck mentions the same as a reason for Iran’s drought: “Mismanagement of water resources … and climate change is likely to significantly worsen the problem in the future.”
That water shortages are causing serious problems that indeed have been worsening in Iran is without dispute, but whether those shortages have been worsened because sky rivers above Iran’s agricultural areas have been re-directed to, for example, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Belgium or Great Britain, regions that in recent years have suffered phenomenally anomalous flooding, is a possibility that can and should be researched with full support of a range of independent international environmental groups.
When it comes to something as regular as the rain, for the ancient land of Iran as well as every other place on earth, we don’t need to discuss a new normal.
