Scientists Admit They Can Control Weather with Lasers

For many Americans who wished they could change the weather — whether it be in the Northeast during last winter or in drought-stricken California — researchers have found a way to aim a high-energy laser beam into clouds to make it rain or trigger lightning.

The existence of condensation, storms and lightning are all due to the presence of large amounts of static electricity in the clouds. Researchers from the University of Central Florida and the University of Arizona say that a laser beam activate those large amounts of static electricity and create storms on demand.

By surrounding a beam with another beam that will act as an energy reservoir, the central beam will be sustained for greater distances than previously believed possible. The secondary beam will refuel and help to prevent the dissipation of the primary beam, which would break down quickly on its own.

Although lasers can already travel great distances, it behaves differently than usual, collapsing inward on itself when a laser beam becomes intense enough, according to Matthew Mills, a graduate student at the UFC Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers.

Like we didn't know this already. They've been playing with the weather for almost 70 years now. Now why would anyone want to manipulate the natural climate and cycles of the earth's weather? How could someone possibly benefit from manipulating the Jet Stream? Who would it benefit to use this technology to cause poor crop yields? Who would it benefit to know that an upcoming crop of a particular fruit or veggie is going to be short?

It's a big club, and we ain't in it...

I wonder if they can use it to make caustic fog also?
