Can you imagine a very strange situation in which future wars might not be fought with the conventional weapons of conflict- such as missiles, bombs and bullets – but with the weather? If it sounds like a strange question, well, that’s because it is a strange question! And, if you think that such a thing is simply not possible, it’s very much a case of time to think again. Right now, technology is being researched and developed that may allow for sudden thunderstorms, floods, lightning strikes, and even earthquakes to be directed to specific areas of the planet. The potential result? Complete chaos and death on a huge scale.
It’s not only conspiracy theorists who believe that such a scenario could become a grim reality. In fact, you may be surprised at who has gone on the record as stating that not only is such a thing possible, but that the technology has been around – at experimental level, at least – for decades.
In August 2001, the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper published an article titled “RAF rainmakers ‘caused 1952 flood.’” In part, it stated: “On August 15, 1952, one of the worst flash floods ever to have occurred in Britain swept through the Devon village of Lynmouth. Thirty five people died as a torrent of 90m tons of water and thousands of tons of rock poured off saturated Exmoor and into the village destroying homes, bridges, shops and hotels. The disaster was officially termed ‘the hand of God’ but new evidence from previously classified government files suggests that a team of international scientists working with the RAF [Royal Air Force] was experimenting with artificial rainmaking in southern Britain in the same week and could possibly be implicated.”
