The potential loss of life, physical devastation, economic impact and loss of public confidence posed by a major hurricane could be as detrimental to the United States as any terrorist attack. These threats are significant and appear to be increasing as a result of continued population shifts to coastal areas and potentially from the resultant changes to the environment. This trend is evidenced by the destruction caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005 and Andrew and Iniki at the end of the Twentieth Century.

Recognition of this complex problem is evidenced in both enacted and proposed treaties and legislation designed to address both the lack of understanding as well as the acknowledgement that attempts to alter or interfere with the natural formation and or effects of a hurricane could have or be intentionally used to cause collateral effects. Of particular note are:

U.N. Convention on the Prohibition of Military or any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques, October 5, 1978
109th Congress 1st Session: S-517 Weather Modification Research and Development Policy Authorization Act of 2005 to develop and implement a comprehensive and coordinated national weather modification research policy and a national cooperative Federal and State program of weather modification research development. Specifically, the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) shall:
Establish a Weather Modification Subcommittee…..
Establish a national research program…..
Establish a Weather Modification Research Advisory Board…..
110th Congress 1st Session: H.R. 3445 and S 1807 Weather Mitigation Research and Technology Transfer Authorization Act of 2007 to develop and implement a comprehensive and coordinated national weather mitigation policy and a national cooperative Federal and State program of weather mitigation research and development.
There have been three previous attempts at the federal level to modify hurricanes, the last one ended in 1983. The results from each were disappointing and only caused further push-back on continued research.

Project Cirrus: The first Hurricane modification effort, used dry ice to seed Hurricane Beulah off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida. The hurricane did change course after the seeding and made landfall in Georgia and South Carolina; no causal relationship could be determined.
Project Scud: Carried out by New York University with funding from the Office of Naval Research. Focus was on determining the effects of artificial nucleation on cyclogenesis in the Atlantic Ocean off the east coast of the US. Used dry ice dispensed from an aircraft at 150 pounds/s for 12 hours. Results couldn’t differentiate from normal fluctuations in weather patterns.
Project Stormfury: Collaborative project between the Department of Commerce and the US Navy lasting from 1962 to 1983. Seeded four different hurricanes with silver iodide, results were ambiguous.
The National Research council of the National Academies published a report in 2003, Critical Issues in Weather Modification Research, which basically recommends a renewed commitment to advancing the understanding of fundamental atmospheric processes that are central to the issues of intentional and inadvertent weather modification; call for a coordinated national program to conduct sustained research in cloud and precipitation microphysics, cloud dynamics, cloud modeling, and cloud seeding and a focus on fundamental research questions rather than on near-term applications of weather modification.

The key element of the National Academies Report is its emphasis on basic research to better understand hurricane processes (e.g., initiation, intensification, life cycle including eye replacement cycles, movement, aerosol and air-sea interactions, effects of wind shear, dissipation) before the application of modification procedures. By calling for a coordinated national research program the National Academies demonstrated that it understands the difficulty and complexity of the hurricane modification problem and recognized that it will take the expertise of a number of groups and individuals to address the problem adequately.

The next section of this report discusses the purpose of the workshop followed by a description and abstracts of all the presentations given. The following sections contain a list of recommendations as derived from the workshop and a conclusion of the report followed by a suggested program plan.

Time and Spatial Scale Hurricane Modification Methods

Two methods considered to have potential on a physical basis
– Cooling by increased cloud reflectivity

– Salt spray seeding over large regions

– Global cooling, including TC genesis regions

Similar to global warming mitigation
Possible global circulation impacts
– Cooling of SST by increased ocean mixing

Modification of genesis frequency
Possible global circulation impacts
– Energy of jet engines many orders of magnitude too small

– Predictability problems


Modification of global tropical climate may have serious side effects

"Modification of global tropical climate may have serious side effects."

Do you see this factor anywhere in the Paris Climate Accord?

Though some may think that the obliteration of a hurricane is an act of benevolence, it is only a demonstration of power by the power brokers. Many in Hawaii, including officials, have been pushing back against the climate engineering programs. Was hurricane Iselle initially aimed at the big island as a warning? Was Iselle then blown apart at the last moment to make clear that the weather makers can turn destruction on and off at will? We cannot know the answer to these questions, but it is certain that the very rapid and complete disintegration of this hurricane just before it made landfall is extremely anomalous. There are patented processes and materials specifically for hurricane suppression, the US government has repeatedly stated its interest in hurricane manipulation, why should we doubt that such manipulation is reality? My sincere gratitude to “The HAARP Report” for this excellent 5 minute video analysis on the unexplainable demise of Hurricane Iselle.
