West Texas Weather Modification Association

The West Texas Weather Modification Association is an Operational Cloud Seeding program that operates over 6 million acres of land in West Texas. The primary goal of the program is to enhance rainfall in convective thunderstorms to help increase dry land crop revenues, decrease groundwater consumption, save on irrigation cost and to help recharge area aquifers while putting some water in area lakes, rivers and reservoirs. Since 2004, the WTWMA has helped increase precipitation by 16%, which translates to an additional 2.25″ across the area. The WTWMA is funded by the local groundwater conservation districts and the city of the San Angelo. As a member of the Texas Weather Modification Association, which groups together other programs such as the Panhandle Groundwater Conservation District, the South Texas Weather Modification Association, the Edwards Aquifer Authority, the Trans-Pecos Weather Modification Association among other, the WTWMA continues to expand in its knowledge and abilities by continuing research and development projects per the Texas Weather Modification Act of 1967.

What is Cloud Seeding?
A few of Our Most Popular Questions

Weather Modification can be both planned, as is the case in cloud seeding, or inadvertent, for example, when pollution affects visibility. Planned (deliberate) weather modification is also commonly know as cloud seeding, cloud modification, or atmospheric water management.

How does it Work?

Cloud seeding or commonly referred to as weather modification, is the treatment of individual clouds or cloud systems in an attempt to achieve a desired effect, including fog and hail mitigation, and additional  precipitation in the form of either rain or snow.  Cloud seeding is conducted from the ground or via aircraft by pyrotechnic flares and/or liquid fuel generators.

How it does It?

The Weather Modification Association has adopted a statement on the environmental impact of using silver iodide as a cloud seeding agent. This statement contains background information about silver iodide, how it is used in cloud seeding, and its overall environmental impact.

VERIFY: Can you control the weather?

By:  Stephen Adams   May 11, 2017

“Seeded storms – on average – deliver nearly 2.3 times the rain water as an unseeded storm,” said George Bomar, the Austin-based meteorologist who oversees weather modification in Texas.

…There is no precise way to guage the effectiveness of cloud seeding because every storm is different. But, cloud seeders experiment by seeding some storms and not others to get as a close to a “control” group as possible for their data. Bomar said the research suggests cloud seeding can have noticeable positive effects on rainfall amounts.

HAARP: Secret Weapon Used For Weather Modification, Electromagnetic Warfare

By Fred Burks   January 18, 2015

HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) is a little-known, yet critically important U.S. military defense program which has generated quite a bit of controversy over the years in certain circles. Though denied by HAARP officials, some respected researchers allege that secret electromagnetic warfare capabilities of HAARP are designed to forward the US military’s stated goal of achieving full-spectrum dominance by the year 2020. Others go so far as to claim that HAARP can and has been used for weather modification, to cause earthquakes and tsunamis, to disrupt global communications systems, and more.

Major aspects of the program are kept secret for alleged reasons of “national security.” Yet there is no doubt that HAARP and electromagnetic weapons capable of being used in warfare do exist. According to the official HAARP website, “HAARP is a scientific endeavor aimed at studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere…

“It isn’t just conspiracy theorists who are concerned about HAARP. The European Union called the project a global concern and passed a resolution calling for more information on its health and environmental risks. Despite those concerns, officials at HAARP insist the project is nothing more sinister than a radio science research facility.”
— Quote from a TV documentary on HAARP by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).

“Directed energy is such a powerful technology it could be used to heat the ionosphere to turn weather into a weapon of war. Imagine using a flood to destroy a city or tornadoes to decimate an approaching army in the desert. The military has spent a huge amount of time on weather modification as a concept for battle environments. If an electromagnetic pulse went off over a city, basically all the electronic things in your home would wink and go out, and they would be permanently destroyed.”

Project Cirrus – Hurricane Modification

26 March, 2015 / in The Fringe

Project Cirrus was the first attempt to modify a hurricane. It was a collaboration of the General Electric Corporation, the US Army Signal Corps, the Office of Naval Research, and the US Air Force.
After several preparations, and initial skepticism by government scientists, the first attempt to modify a hurricane began on October 13, 1947 on a hurricane that was heading west to east and out to sea.  An airplane flew along the rainbands of the hurricane, and dropped nearly 80 pounds (36 kilograms) of crushed dry ice into the clouds.

(a)  82% of the clouds seeded produced rain within a brief period after seeding—a percentage appreciably higher than normal expectation in the absence of seeding.
(b)  The amount of rainfall induced by seeding is believed to have been sufficient to have contributed substantially to rendering vehicular routes in this area inoperable. Since the end of the rainy season, the communists have failed to undertake route repairs and there has been no vehicular traffic.
(c)  In one instance, the rainfall continued as the cloud moved eastward across the Vietnam border and inundated a U.S. Special Forces camp with nine inches of rain in four hours.
(d)  DOD scientists consider that the experiment demonstrated a capacity to raise and maintain rainfall under controlled conditions to the level at which the land is saturated over a sustained period, slowing movement on foot and rendering the operation of vehicles impracticable.

Engineered Climate Cataclysm: Hurricane Harvey

By:   Dane Wigington    August 30, 2017

Hurricane Harvey is the latest example of covert weather warfare being waged on completely unsuspecting populations. Increasingly catastrophic climate cataclysms are being orchestrated and manipulated by an ever more desperate and aggressive global power structure. Rapidly accelerating climate and biosphere collapse is not somewhere on the horizon, it is here, now. Climate engineering is further fueling the unraveling of the remaining web of life on our once thriving planet. With undeniable facts and film footage the video below fully exposes the manipulation of Hurricane Harvey.

Sharing credible and verifiable data is absolutely crucial in the fight to expose and halt the ongoing climate engineering assault. When incorrect or false data is propagated, the critical cause of exposing and halting climate engineering is harmed. Investigate, become familiar with the most inarguable building block facts, and make your voice heard.

…And Harvey’s stubborn refusal to move along inland, but rather to stay put, spawn tornadoes, and dump more water on Houston and the Texas Gulf coast, seems a little “odd.” It seems, if I may be “country simple” once again, to be too contrived. Weaponizing weather to make an entire region of a state “uninhabitable for weeks or possibly months” behind an “act of God” like a storm is a convenient way to wage war behind the ultimate cloak of plausible deniability, for most people have difficulty believing the idea that such enormous systems, such as the weather, can actually be manipulated, steered, and engineered…

…Bottom line: I cannot help but think that Harvey’s odd behavior is a little too odd, and that we’re looking at weather warfare once again, or at the minimum, the possibility that we’re looking at some sort of “blowback” from the technologies that can manipulate systems on a planetary scale, systems such as HAARP and EISCAT and other ionospheric heaters, possibly even the Large Hadron Collider with its strong, immensely powerful magnetic fields. There’s an aspect of “unnaturality” here, if I may coin that word, that disturbs me.

Weather Modification: The Evolution of an R&D Program into a Military Operation.


A portion of the United States Navy program in weather modification is devoted to the logistic and flight support of the joint N 0 A AI Navy research program on hurricane modification (Project Stormfury). In addition, it supports studies of cloud and fog dissipation and the development of pyrotechnic seeding devices. The Office of Naval Research has for many years supported several basic research programs· in atmospheric electricity, some of which are relevant to the possibility of artificially modifying lightning from thunderstorms. The United States Army is involved in studies of fog dissipation, atmospheric electricity, and convective cloud dynamics. The United States Air Force is similarly interested in the dynamics of convective cloud systems that affect the flight of aircraft and missiles and the dissipation of fogs and low stratus clouds. It has also participated in Project Stormfury. During the course of this study, no attempt was made by the Panel to examine classified experimental programs or to ascertain the existence of classified experimental programs in weather modification…  Link  (Archive Link)

Project STORMFURY – program of research on hurricane modification (intended to dissipate the destructive force)    If anything.. the military is very interested in the ability to REDUCE a hurricane’s destructive force..
The overly paranoid part of me, is saying.. If they can figure out the science behind making them slower..
maybe they can work out how to make them faster..

 Project STORMFURY was an ambitious experimental program of research on hurricane modification carried out between 1962 and 1983. The proposed modification technique involved artificial stimulation of convection outside the eyewall through seeding with silver iodide. The invigorated convection, it was argued, would compete with the original eyewall, lead to reformation of the eyewall at larger radius, and thus, through partial conservation of angular momentum, produce a decrease in the strongest winds.   Link   (Archive Link)

Weather Warfare

In his 1931 book The Scientific Outlook, Lord Bertrand Arthur Russell, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1950, discussed manipulating the weather. “It may be that God made the world,” Russell proclaimed, “that is no reason why we should not make it over.”
Charles Galton Darwin, a physicist who worked on the Manhattan Project, who was also the grandson of Charles Darwin, talked about gaining direct control over the climate in his 1952 book, The Next Million Years.
Weather modification is now possible. Attempts to modify the weather have been made since at least the late 1940s. In 1947 the US Navy, Army, and Air Force, working with General Electric Corporation, made the first attempt to modify a hurricane under Project Cirrus, by dropping about 80 pounds of dry ice into clouds.
Project Cumulus, carried out by the British Royal Air Force between 1949 and 1952, included cloud seeding experiments over southern England. It was allegedly responsible for the 1952 flood in the Devon village of Lynmouth, which resulted in 34 deaths and the destruction of multiple structures.
In the 1950s the US Forest Service carried out a project called Skyfire in which they experimented with cloud seeding techniques to decrease lightning in order to reduce forest fires. Then, under Project Stormfury from 1962 to 1983, the United States Government tried to disrupt the inner structure of hurricanes in the Atlantic by flying aircraft into them, and seeding them with silver iodide.
Weather modification involves three major categories: suppression of weather patterns, intensification of weather patterns, and in some cases the introduction of completely new weather patterns. The two basic methods to accomplish weather modification include cloud seeding and directed-energy….

Ben Livingston: The Father of Weaponized Weather

By: THElNFOWARRlOR   Published on Feb 13, 2011

Veteran weather modification expert Ben Livingston is a former Navy Physicist who briefed President Lyndon B. Johnson on the effectiveness of weather control back in the 1960’s during the Vietnam era, when he was involved in cloud seeding programs that worked to slow down the advance of Vietnamese and Korean troops. Livingston asserts that asserts that hurricane control was a national priority of the government more than 40 years ago and that the technology was fully operational to control the weather at the time.

In this exclusive interview for Prison subscribers, Livingston explains how for decades the US government has had the power to both lessen and increase the severity of adverse weather for their own purposes.

Dr. Livingston was assigned in 1966 from the Naval weapons research Laboratory to a marine fighter squadron in Vietnam. Instead of guns, the aircraft under Livingston’s control were fitted with cloud seeding equipment. “My mission was to find clouds and seed them for maximum precipitation value” he stated.

Dr. Livingston presents evidence from the Stanford research Institute, who were brought into Project Storm Fury (a weather control program) in the late sixties as a third party, which stated conclusively that knowledge of how to stop hurricanes had been uncovered and that they would be directly liable should a hurricane hit and cause extensive damage and loss of life. Four decades later and Livingston exposes how the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina could have been greatly minimized but was allowed to fully impact Gulf states for political reasons.

Having personally flown on 265 missions into the eyes of hurricanes, Livingston remarks that he was “disgusted” by the failure to lessen the impact of Katrina. Livingston’s revelations that weather control has been a decades long program in which the US government has been deeply involved are particularly alarming given the abundant modern-day evidence of how chemtrails are being used to warp our environment in a secret geoengineering plot that threatens a myriad of unknown human health and ecological consequences.
