Russia to Control Weather This Winter

 

Scientists in Russia have been able to change the weather for decades. Josef Stalin founded an observatory that dedicated itself to changing inconvenient weather during World War II. Since then, they have been able to control the weather in many ways.

They have melted away fog, dissipated radioactive fallout from Chernobyl, cleared away clouds so it is nice and sunny during festivals, and called down fierce rainstorms to drown unborn locusts that threatened their northeastern grasslands.

Now they plan to use the same technology to rid snow from the capital streets. They would seed the clouds with liquid nitrogen or dry ice to dissipate them so that it wouldn't snow in the city, which would save them $13 million a year in snow removal costs.

  wow nice  
 
i see they actually have a solid idea there, pretty smart of the russians, because weather dictates much of everything and if someone goes to war they could theoretically make it snow where the enemy is, limiting their actions and defence, lowering morale.
hard to take satellite photos when there´s thick cloud/fog around, hard to fire missiles onto targets (yes considering GPS but that´s easily defeated by scrambling the signal)
these are just "tests" to tune their mad hatters weather control device :p

  Very cool...  
 
...but weird how certain things are treated as a paranoid, tinfoil hat delusion on the one hand and on the other are just treated in a matter-of-fact "duh, everyone knows that" kinda way. Like weaponized/politicized weather control is a paranoid delusion, while weather control to keep snow off sidewalks is of the "duh" variety, lol.

Ok guys, wouldn´t this really ..freak with the weather and not exactly help our issues with global warming? Hey how about this, can´t they cool down the earth?

my tinfoil hat is sending me funny messages.

  Well Hell  
 
Now we know why some people can say without a doubt of concern why global warming is hogwash, because they all have ties to this observatory!!! /sarcasm

  There you have it.  
 
All the world needs is to tap this technology, perhaps trade a few bottles of Vodka for it. Apply it, and we can have days to order. They can make a fortune on Wedding days and such. I can see it now, Need rain?, ok 3 grand gives you two hours , should start about 6 am and be done by 9 then you can take the kids out fishing.
With this tecnology there will be no need for the global hoaxing to continue. Of Course Al Goofy and Goldman Sucks will be a little PO´d as they are banking on the Cap and trade.

If we could order them I have a feeling that the 25th of December would have all this wonderful snow and then the next morning it has all melted and it would be 72 all the time minus some needed rain and some colder days. I would be happy if we could simply remove tornadoes, hurricanes, tsunamis and earthquakes just for starters.

China does this too, the recent oct 1st national day parades received the clear-sky treatment, courtesy of a bunch of cannon shots fired into the sky a day before.

  Well good then, I have just one question....  
 
where do I place my order? I´d like the number twelve SoCal special with extra sunshine.....

Hypothetically, as long as an attacker has ground and air superiority, and have the resources, they could deprive a country or nation from rain. Once it was dry enough you could torch a country or nation into submission.

Or you could wait until the right weather pattern comes in, and release all of the humidity in the clouds, causing flooding like that has never been seen in that country before, then blow their dams.

I have the Michigan Beach days with a nice clear sky with a side of warm Lake Michigan Summer, some southern rock with a helping of classic rock on the side. I also would need the extended 20 year warranty that they have which promises no sunburn on this lily white ass of mine lol

@hellblazer

"There you have it.
All the world needs is to tap this technology, perhaps trade a few bottles of Vodka for it."

the US already have 2 such devices:

HIPAS, about 1/3 the strength of russia´s sura (russia´s weather control machine; AKA ionospheric heater), almost no-one talks about this one.

HAARP, which is about 20-22 time more powerful than russia´s

europe also has one (EISCAT, no less than 25% of the power of HAARP, or 5-6 time more powerful than sura), and china is developing one.

anyone that thinks HAARP can´t control the weather shouldn´t believe this article either (lol), as HAARP has much, MUCH more power and potential for controlling the weather than russia has and they have it, and have it down to a science.


@slayer

or steer a hurricane (HARRP´s power spiked as katrine hit florida, it was orrignally supposed to hit texas dead on, and instead hit new orleans)...lol

it can also cause earthquakes by discharging the energy back into the ground (infact there is evidence this has already been done, the 2008 quake in china was preceed 10 minute proir by the north lights), or tsunami´s if triggered underwater.

and since it can move jetstreams, it can litterally create tornados on a whim if used properly.

The snow doesn´t magically go away, it gets dumped on smaller towns outside of Moscow. In other words Moscow is saving decent momney on the snow clean up and the surrounding area gets extra snow and has to foot the bill for dealing with it. It´s a variation on the usual theme of rural areas getting screwed by their city cousins.

Why is it now that this is believable and years ago when anyone mentioned this they would look at you like you´re crazy...kinda silly how our society is so naieve yet quick to categorize someone as a total wacko.

Now, how about we figure out how to make it rain more frequently in certain desert areas like death valley or places in africa?

Great!! now we can adjust the weather accordingly and we don´t need to worry about Global Warming any more.

Hey that sounds like a plan, Get a hold of someone over there and see if they could swing it for us.

I will be looking for some Russian Weather man to put my order in. I think that having it as a yearly event would be the best option, don´t you?
 
  by: TaraB     12/11/2009 02:05 PM     
  This can´t be good  
 
for the world. I firmly believe that nature takes corrective actions when it´s needed. If we are indeed altering nature´s path, it is quite possible, that whatever climate anomalies we are having now are a result of not being able to control the outcome of altering nature´s intended path.

It´s quite possible that this altering action caused the Norwegian anomaly.
