Okay, seriously I appreciate Kay Bailey bringing this out of the darkness into the light. Good on her.

The weatherwars.info guy will certainly be talking about this...

I guess we start nuking hurricanes. If a blast of warm dry
air caused Katrina to go from a cat 5 to a cat 4 just
before land fall then a big hot bomb could weaken a bad storm a little. Of course then you would have fallout to deal
with. Oh well. Its not like this is new. They have been jackin around with cloud seeding for a while.

Of course it could also heat the water up and turn it into a Cat 9.

My Dad (who works odd hours) said on last nights Coast to Coast, there was a guy that said the hurricane was an attack by Russia against the US and China (a big typhoon just whacked China).

We do not have the technology to do that. A nuke might have stopped the storm, but might not have also.

Have certainly wondered about that in terms of New Orleans.

I absolutely believe there is something to it. I just don't know how precise it is. Some supposed experts insist it is extremely precise--a well refined and well, fully developed technology.

What do I know. I just don't believe it's all disinformation. I believe there's substance to it, to some degree.

Regardless, whether God allows man's evil to do him in or what, God will insure discipline of evil doing and of pressuring Israel to give up Covenant lands.

Supporting evil is not a remotely good way to get God's protection and blessings.

I just read that the California Senate approved homosexual marriage. That leaves me expecting a huge quake in CA within weeks to a few months.

Times are a changin' folks.

Satire? I certainly hope so.

Controlling the weather...you know a lot of meteorologists come to my hometown to learn how to predict the weather in a crash sort of course. Most of the time, they can't. Same thing goes for contolling it, although on a much larger scale.

More than a few implicate HARP in such schemes.

Plausible. What do I know.

I just know there's more than smoke to the issue. There's some devastating substance buried under all the secrecy and disinformation.

What that means, I don't know. But it's more than smoke.

Research it out extensively and see if you still feel the same way.

Research what out? That some idiot in congress actually thinks there is a chance to control the weather? In order to do that, you'd have to control volcanic eruptions, both on land and under water, sun spots, solar flares, wind currents hundreds of miles wide, the Gulf Stream...on second thought, someone I used to work with who was normally rational, actually thought that human activity had an impact.

Not necessarily at all, it turns out.

You SHOULD know about the effect of warm water on intensifying hurricane strength.

Once upon a time, there was HARP to communicate with submarines . . . turns out, there were some other tuneable results of using that technology.

Search it out.

Assumptions can be poor foundations for knowledge and wisdom.

Ever since I was somewhat aware as a child and hurricane David of 1979, I believe it was, did I know this. And every time a hurricane is forming or gathers strength, it is mentioned. I thought this was common knowledge.

I live in the midwest. St. Louis, to be exact, where we are tucked in a river valley between two thermal walls known as the Mississippi River and the Missouri River. They make a mess of weather systems, mostly in the winter. In the summer and early fall, hurricanes have been known to come up the river and dump rain on us. In fact, Monday evening, we caught the upper end of Katrina in the way of showers. All you had to do is look at a satelite photo and know why the weather suddenly changed. It was supposed to be sunny all week.

Actually, we are in the middle of a drought. Just because it rained - and not all that much - doesn't mean that the drought is over. We're down on rain by A LOT this year.

WOW. And I thought New Mexico and Arizona had a huge monopoly on drought in our USA.

God have mercy on us all.

Drought has definitely been predicted for our land.

Both a drought of hearing The Word of The Lord

and a drought of the land leading to famine in the USA such that people will be waiting for relatives to die so they can have something to eat . . . and even hastening the process because they are so hungry . . . infanticide for food becoming common.

I hope I'm in Heaven before that day. But I am convinced--especially short of a huge spiritual revival of people SEEKING GOD AND PUTTING HIM AND HIS PRIORITIES FIRST--I'm convinced that day will come to the USA.

SEEK GOD, FOLKS. SEEK AND PUT HIM FIRST. There is NO other hope.

I believe I read somewhere that Nicola Tesla was experimenting with electromagnetism and he had a ground wire
attached to a metal Post in his shop. He heard someone
beating on the door and stopped. when he answered the door
the person told him to stop what he was doing because it was
tearing the city apart. ELF waves can be bad mojo. Look at the walls of Jerico.

This Act may be cited as the `Weather Modification Research and Technology Transfer Authorization Act of 2005'.

PURPOSE:
To establish the Weather Modification Operations and Research Board, and for other purposes - like waisting MORE tax dollars creating another do-nothing gubmint bureaucracy filled with slack jawed idiots, and giving my 3rd cousin, twice removed, 'Bubba', a job for life.

Seriously though Katrina just about died when it was a TD. It was declared dead but it popped back up several days later and one of the weather channel guys oh oh'ed pretty hard. He said it was going to be a strong one and he was right.

Do you recall that hurricane that evolved in the southern atlantic ocean last year off of Brazil (where rumor had it OBL's navy was gathering?) There had never, ever been one down there before. I knew we had entered into a weather war then. I guess we're taking some new toys out of the toybox.
