Weather Modification History
Although David Keith claims that active geoengineering projects were merely “past tense” projects, and that current geoengineering tests are “highly unlikely,” we have two admissions to prove otherwise:Geoengineering sparks international ban, first-ever congressional report http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/10/29/AR2010102906365.html
Climate Intelligence Agency: The CIA is now funding research into manipulating the climate.
In addition, Wikipedia states quite the opposite in the “Climate Engineering” post:
“In a 2009 review study, Lenton and Vaughan evaluated a range of geoengineering schemes from those that sequester CO2 from the atmosphere and decrease longwave radiation trapping, to those that decrease the Earth’s receipt of shortwave radiation. In order to permit a comparison of disparate techniques, they used a common evaluation for each scheme based on its effect on net radiative forcing. As such, the review examined the scientific plausibility of schemes rather than the practical considerations such as engineering feasibility or economic cost. Lenton and Vaughan found that “[air] capture and storage shows the greatest potential, combined with afforestation, reforestation and bio-char production”, and noted that “other suggestions that have received considerable media attention, in particular “ocean pipes” appear to be ineffective”. They concluded that “[climate] geoengineering is best considered as a potential complement to the mitigation of CO2 emissions, rather than as an alternative to it”.
In October 2011, a Bipartisan Policy Center panel issued a report urging immediate researching and testing in case “the climate system reaches a ‘tipping point’ and swift remedial action is required”. The National Academy of Sciences is running 21-month project which will study how humans might influence weather patterns, assess dangers and investigate possible national security implications of geoengineering attempts. The project will be funded by the CIA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and NASA.“
And while David Keith admits to plotting the murder of 10,000 people per year on national television, without prosecution, here is the actual number of air-pollution related deaths:
Geoengineering Main Article
ABSTRACT This paper is in response to the Editorial Essay by Crutzen and the Editorial Comment by Cicerone in the August 2006 issue of Climatic Change. We reprise the evidence from atmospheric nuclear weapon testing in the 1950s and 1960s which is salient to the mooted maintenance of an artificial sulphate aerosol layer in the lower stratosphere, including a hitherto and now posthumous unpublished analysis of the 185W Hardtack data. We also review recent investigations by ourselves, which have considerable bearing on some relevant questions concerning meteorological dynamics, aerosol chemistry and physics and the photodissociation of stratospheric sulphuric acid.

WEATHER MODIFICATION. Rainmaking efforts began in Texas in the early 1890s, when army units, recalling that in the Civil War artillery bombardments often had been followed by rain, experimented by firing explosives into the air in the hope of obtaining rain. Experiments were conducted in Midland at least as early as 1891 by Gen. Robert St. George Dyrenforth, who used explosive balloons and artillery to “break the balanced state” of nature and make rainclouds develop.
