Welcome to the Weather Modification History Geoengineering and Weather Modification Timeline. Each event in this timeline contains descriptions, quotes, images, videos, and MLA formatted references archived by Jim Lee and is divided into three main categories:
- Geoengineering: Also known as Climate Engineering or Climate Intervention, Geoengineering is the inadvertent (unintentional or “accidental”) or intentional attempt by humans to control the temperature of the world and/or modify nature on massive scales to achieve a desired result (such as melting the arctic or to solve The Dust Bowl).
- Weather Modification: Is the inadvertent or intentional attempt by humans to control rainfall, hail, lightning, cyclones, and any other tropospheric weather phenomenon.
- Space Weather Modification: Is the inadvertent or intentional attempt by humans to alter our upper atmosphere (ionosphere, mesosphere) through rockets and satellite chemical releases and injection of high powered electromagnetic radiation (like ionospheric heaters, lasers, and charged particle beams).
This timeline, while far from being complete, covers over 150 years of attempts to control our climate and weather. Some events cover larger patterns (like contrail-cirrus from aviation, 1958 to present) while others are very specific to a single event, statement, or publication
