Global warming: pretext for weather warfare?
Posted on April 26, 2007 by Mark Baard
Plans within plans: Lowell Wood (a.k.a. “Dr. Evil”), with his mentor, Edward Teller. Recent reports suggest that the scientists’ weather warfare proposals are gaining traction.
Recent reports in the Wall Street Journal (see excerpt and link, below) and elsewhere point to the threat posed by a group of physicists, led by one “Dr. Evil,” who want to use aircraft to disperse specially engineered particles to block out the sun.
The reports, based on an article in the Spring 2007 Wilson Quarterly, supports claims by Alan Watt that weather modification experiments (marked by chemtrails and sudden weather changes) have long been underway.
The author of the WQ piece, James R. Fleming, describes the “troubling motif of militarization in the history of weather and climate control.”
Fleming quotes Dr. Evil (Pentagon physicist Lowell Wood, who gets a kick out of the nickname) as saying the time has come for “an intelligent elimination of undesired heat from the biosphere by technical ways and means,” rather than changes in fuel consumption and public policy.
Wood was a protégé of the late nuke scientist Edward Teller, who proposed similar climate control measures before he died in 2003.

Climate engineering has become a popular topic among a group of scientists who are skeptical of the potential other environmental remedies, from carbon taxes to alternative energy, James R. Fleming, a professor of science, technology and society at Colby College, writes in the Wilson Quarterly’s spring issue. But the potential fixes being discussed reflect an overconfidence in technology, Mr. Fleming says, as well as an ignorance of the history of failed efforts to control the weather.
One idea put forth by a physicist involved in climate-control discussions would involve bombarding the Arctic stratosphere with specially engineered particles to deflect the sun’s rays, thereby lowering temperatures.
