Cloudbuster Attacks On Planet Earth

Cloudbusting is a menace to the environment. Despite some claims to the contrary, cloudbusting is not a solution to environmental problems; it is a problem in itself, a destructive technology requiring a condemnatory response by the environmental movement.

Cloudbusting is not something new; it is already so comonplace as to be intolerable and an environmental movement to control this currently unregulated technology is needed to protect the public.

All over the world people are getting worried about what is happening to the climate. Each year, it seems, there are more and more extreme weather events of increasing severity and frequency. Records are being broken more often than ever before in recorded history. It is clear the climate of the entire world is becoming destabilized, less reliable, more random and chaotic, with droughts, floods, heat waves, and severe cold spells becoming the norm.

While there are several factors involved in this climatic breakdown, one seldom recognized major factor in this climate destabilization is the existence of a technological means to interfere with the natural movement of the atmosphere on a large scale. This device, called a cloudbuster, is simple and cheap enough to construct that in recent years hundreds of individuals all over the world, learning about it from instructions promiscuously posted on irresponsible websites, have taken it up as a backyard hobby.

Many of these individuals tend to be paranoid and delusional, and are using the cloudbuster as a sort of prop in a role-playing game, often imagining themselves to be fighting off hostile UFOs, resisting a secret government plot of some kind, or changing "bad" atmospheric energy into "good".

Many others claim they are "ending droughts", "making rain", or "doing research". They seem oblivious to the fact that the droughts they think they are ending resume as soon as they stop operating because the underlying cause of the drought has not been adressed. They fail to understand that the goal of proper cloudbusting is not to make rain, but to restore normal pulsation of the atmospheric energy so that, among other effects, rain will occur spontaneously as needed.

They ignore the rights of the people affected to be told what is being done to their environment and to have some say in the matter, and that subjecting people to a research program who have not given their informed consent is a human rights violation.

Some think they are "greening deserts", while in reality, they are subjecting the fragile dryland ecosystem to unusual stress from excessive rainfall in areas where all native life-forms are well-adapted to the prevailing conditions.

They usually have no idea of the scientific basis upon which the cloudbuster works, or fantasize, without evidence, that some wildly speculative theory of their own concoction is the better theory. Frequently they have little idea of what a cloudbuster is capable of, many of them, for example, thinking it only affects their local area.

As a result of these incompetent interventions in atmospheric dynamics, countless innocent victims have died and the environment has been seriously disturbed in numerous weather-related catastrophes.

Due to their paranoia they do not often communicate what they are doing to others working in the same field. Many of them, in fact, think they are the only ones doing anything with what they think is a somehow suppressed and secret invention. Many others are so arrogant they think nobody except themselves and their associates is able to conduct cloudbusting operations safely and properly, so they refuse to co-operate with those they deem "unqualified".

While there is certainly nothing secret or suppressed about the cloudbuster, it is regarded as crackpot by many of the scientific community, in large part because of the absurd fictions and folklore with which it has become surrounded. The fantastic legends of its' inventor, Wilhelm Reich, having been the victim of official persecution, or of some alleged conspiratorial plot, or having fought wars with beings from outer space, or having had meetings with Einstein, serve to distract attention from the serious issue of the menace of the cloudbuster he invented.

This large body of folklore functions to hide the reality of the cloudbuster as an effective, science-based tool and disguise it as a crackpot fantasy. It is perfectly right, in fact, the only rational response of anyone with even the slightest scientific education, to dismiss such a device as incapable of having any effect on the weather when it is presented wrapped in such packaging.

The failure to recognize the imput into the total atmospheric picture of this proliferation of crackpots playing around with cloudbusters means the scientists trying to understand the weather are misled into ignoring that a large portion of unusual weather events are being caused by this unsuspected form of technological intervention and instead think the climate changes now underway are being caused by some other factor, such as greenhouse effect from combustion products released into the atmosphere.

Any theory of what is happening with the weather and climate on this planet must take the social phenomena of a mass movement of cloudbuster hobbyists into account. And the environmental movement must mount an effective effort to counter this form of blatant interference with the atmosphere.

If and when cloudbusting is ever recognized by the scientific community as a science-based reality rather than a prop in a fantasy role-playing game, then it can be expected that official agencies will take over the job of protecting the public from improper use of the cloudbuster. But until then, it is up to concerned environmentalists to fill that role. Otherwise, until cloudbusting can be regulated, countless innocent victims will continue to die each year from cloudbuster-murder by crackpot Reichians.

And greenhouse gases from combustion will take the rap. The world is now facing serious economic problems at least partially caused by the mistaken belief that the atmospheric disorder caused by cloudbusting is due to a greenhouse effect instead, and numerous laws are in the process of being passed taxing or restricting fuel-burning activities in an effort to prevent weather disasters that are really being caused by cloudbusting and could only be prevented by restricting the use of cloudbusters.

Until effective regulation is in place, however, the few responsible people who are aware of the threat posed by cloudbusters must be ready and willing to take whatever action is needed to stop the use of cloudbusters in their home areas. Direct intervention by concerned citizens is often the only way to prevent serious harm to the earth and to the public, and this is one of those cases.


In recent years, as the internet has made it possible for anyone with a
computer to spread the word about anything they please, irresponsible
instructions for building cloudbusters have mushroomed and
cloudbusting is now second only to nuclear power as the worst environmental

Cloudbuster proliferation has become a major environmental problem.

The cloudbuster is a very simple, easy to construct device that can be used to help restore a sick, damaged atmosphere to normal self-regulatory functioning.

This re-establishment of natural self-regulation to the atmosphere when it has become damaged and stagnated is the goal of any properly-done cloudbusting project.

Unfortunately, many people fail to grasp this point. Anyone who uses terms like "weather engineering", "etheric engineering", "weather control", "rainmaking", and the like, does not understand this important factor in cloudbusting.

It is an unfortunate side-effect of cloudbusting that it can be misused to cause rain and can have other direct effects on the weather.

In recent years many environmentalists have expressed concern that the details of how to construct a cloudbuster are too easily available on the internet. There is a growing Orgonomic Ecology Movement that is concerned about unwanted consequences of cloudbuster interference in the weather and seeks to prevent cloudbuster proliferation and combat those individuals guilty of hubris who wish to intervene in the weather by this means.

The Orgonomic Ecology group exists to explore ways and means to stop the proliferation of cloudbusters and expose to public outrage the power-drunkards and control-freaks who are attacking our atmosphere with cloudbusters, however they may rationalize their destructiveness.

We will pull no punches. We will name names and fight back against the propaganda of the atmosphere abusers and their enablers.

We regard Atmosphere Abuse as similar to other, more personal, forms of abuse, such as abuse of children or animals. The psychology of the abuser is the same, and we intend to expose that pathology.

We seek to build an anti-cloudbuster movement that can bring to a halt the rapidly growing hobby of manipulating the weather by control-freaks who are unable to leave the natural world alone.

Please spread the word around about this blog and urge your contacts to read it and to pass it on to their own contacts also.

About Me

I have been very involved in orgonomy since 1967 and have done cloudbusting, oranur work and laboratory experiments with orgone accumulators, medical DOR-busters, and pre-atomic chemistry. I was a student of Dr. Eva Reich, the daughter of Dr. Wilhelm Reich, who invented the cloudbuster, and have a letter from her saying I have learned what she has to teach and she considers me "very knowledgeable in this field".

Dr.James DeMeo: Environmental Menace

   Cloudbusting : Environmental Menace 
                                                   by Joel Carlinsky
 Wilhelm Reich, in his book, "The Murder of Christ" spoke of the harm done to the cause of freedom by irresponsible "Freedom Peddlers" and warned about the possibility that his own work would be similarly usurped by "Orgonomy Peddlers" who would use it in harmful ways. As with so much Reich said, this warning has been ignored by many people favorably disposed toward Reich and his work, many of whom are supporting and encouraging individuals whose reckless and irresponsible misuse of Reich's discoveries and incompetent and misguided efforts to "prove Reich right" are causing serious ecological damage.
Among the worst of these is a Dr. James DeMeo, of Ashland, Oregon, who has conducted numerous cloudbusting operations over many years and has caused the deaths of thousands of innocent people and done enormous damage to the environment.
  Dr. DeMeo and his associates are doing a great deal of harm to the environment and innocent members of the public by incompetent cloudbusting operations conducted without proper ecological knowledge or concern for the environment. Their bungled operations have frequently resulted in devastation to ecosystems and other damages, including the deaths of many innocent bystanders, due to storms, floods, and freezing weather.
In 1989, DeMeo, then living in the San Francisco Bay area, conducted a series of cloudbusting operations in the Arizona desert. As recounted in his article in the Journal of Orgonomy, he first visited Arizona in March, two months before the rainy season starts, and within 3 days had produced rain. He subsequently visited Arizona one weekend each month during the 5-month rainy season and brought rain each time for a seasonal total of 5 times the normal rainfall for the area in which he was working.
Now, in any area with a well-defined wet season and dry season, all native plant and animal species are adapted to the normal dry season and need it. Small burrowing mammals such as pocket mice, kangaroo rats, gophers, etc.give birth underground in the dry season; if it rains unexpectedly at the wrong time of year, the burrows flood and the infants drown.
 Reptiles such as snakes, lizards, the desert tortoise, which is on the endangered species list, and the Gila Monster, found only in Arizona, lay their eggs in the dry season under a thin coat of sand, just enough to hide them but allow the sun to incubate them. If it rains out of season, the sand is washed away and they lose a clutch of eggs.
These small mammals and reptiles are the base of the food chain and if their population crashes so will that of the owls, coyotes, badgers, and other predators that depend on them.
Seeds dispersed in desert sand will germinate when they become moist. If there is out-of-season rain too long before the rainy season starts, they get a "false start" and then die before the real rainy season comes with sufficiently prolonged rains` to keep them growing until they produce a new generation of seeds.
The following year, DeMeo undertook a series of weekend expeditions to Arizona durring the usual rainy season. Since this series of operations was planned far in advance, when it would have been impossible to know what the weather at the time would be like, it was obviously not an attempt to break a drought or restore normal conditions. It was intended to be conducted regardless of what he actual weather at the time` of the planned operation might turn out to be.
The published report of that project shows a 500% increase in rainfall over the course of the wet season. Ask any farmer what 5 times normal rainfall would do to his crops! Unlike plants in non-desert areas, most desert plants lack the mechanism that limits uptake of excessive wather. Most desert plants absorb all the water they can get, and will swell up and burst when they get twice normal rainfall. This applies especially to the Sagaro Cactus, the State Flower of Arizona, which is on the Endangered Species List.
In "Contact With Space", Reich described exactly what he did in Arizona. He spent 5 months in the desert. He drove 100 miles every day just to familiarize himself with the landscape so he could note any changes in it. By contrast, James DeMeo lived in Northern California and commuted to the desert one weekend a month.
After 5 months of patient work, Reich succeeded in obtaining a lush growth of grass WITHOUT A DROP OF RAIN HAVING FALLEN ---- That's right! Reich, according to his own report, did not create rain in the desert and did not want to!
In fact, he explicitly says that rain would have made it impossible to obtain the increase in plant growth he did obtain, since it would have drowned the developing vegetation. Reich's goal, in which he was successful only after 5 months of patient daily labor, was not to make rain, but to revive the stagnant energy field of the desert to the point where it could regulate itself and produce rain at its own times, not according to some man-made schedule.
DeMeo misses this point entirely. He produces rain on an artificial schedule only to create impressive charts and graphs, ignoring the catastrophic effects of 5 times normal rainfall on all plant and animal species, and then, totally disregarding what Reich plainly said, claims to have "replicated" Reich's work in the desert. He repeatly refers to "Reich's rainmaking expedition" and to Reich "making rain in the desert" when in fact Reich specifically said he did not do so.
In subsequent years DeMeo undertook two trips to Namibia to break droughts there with a cloudbuster. He also trained local operators and left equipment with them so that Namibia now has a permanent drought- abatement program in place. Under normal conditions -- normal for the last 5-6000 years, that is -- Southern Africa has a regular cycle of 3 or 4 good years followed by a drought year.
 In the dry years, the prevailing winds pick up millions of tons of dust and carry it out over the ocean. About half of it falls into the ocean where it provides silica, phosphates, and other essential nutrients to the phytoplankton which are the base of the marine ecosystem food chain. So in years when Southern Africa has droughts, life in the South Atlantic flourishes and in years Southern Africa has good rains, the South Atlantic marine life dies back.
The remainder of the dust is carried over to Brazil, where it is the sole source of trace elements not found in Brazilian soils which are essential nutrients for many tropical rainforest plant species. Like the sea-life, the Brazilian rainforest therefore flourishes in years when Namibia has a drought and declines in years when Namibia has plenty of rain. By establishing a permanent drought abatement facility in Namibia, DeMeo has contributed to irreparable harm to the global environment. (1)
 In another case of ecological ignorance and irresponsibility, he reports in one of his publications that to make up a long-standing water deficit during a recent series of dry years in California, he extended the rainy season by a month one year and 6 weeks another year. I have spoken to a biologist at the Point Reyes Bird Observatory who tells me that in both years in question they lost a significant percentage of baby birds due to inclement weather during the normally dry nesting season. Baby birds get pneumonia in wet weather. Incidentally, some of the birds affected were on the Endangered Species List. (2)
In several consecutive years in which there was a drought in California, DeMeo and the group he belongs to, known as the C.OR.E. Network, conducted a long series of operations in an effort to end the drought pattern. While some rains did fall, the drought prsisted. It was obvious from reading his reports that the problem was the cloudbuster itself. As a safety measure, DeMeo and his associates use cloudbusters operated by remote control. This is to protect the operator from too much exposure to DOR in the immediate vicinity of the cloudbuster.
The remote control equipment uses 12-volt D.C. batteries to power electrical servo-motors to elevate and turn the cloudbuster pipes. Electricity has an excitng effect on orgone, and the 12-volt D.C. current was enough to cause an over-excitation of the field of the cloudbuster, which was then imparted to the orgone energy field of the atmosphere, causing an expansion that counteracted the contraction they were trying to cause to bring rain.
 As a result of this attempt to end the drought, it was instead prolonged. The drought would have been over much sooner if there had been no cloudbusting attempted.
DeMeo has also done cloudbusting operations in the Middle East. I have seen documentation obtained from the National Climate Data Center, in Ashville, North Carolina,  showing numerous deaths of people in the region as a result of catastrophic weather during the periods in which he was operating there.
In addition to a cold snap that was the worst in recorded history and brought the first snow in 40 years to Israel, along with the deaths of 22 people in a snowslide in the mountains in Turkey, his own report contained documentation of people drowned in a flash-flood while camping in a normally dry riverbed, and several deaths in accidents caused by driving too fast under unfamiliar`conditions on rain-slicked roads. When questioned about this by some of his German collegues, DeMeo reportedly defensively replied that his operations in the Middle East had done so much good that a few` deaths were an acceptable price to pay. (3) (4) (5)
Dr.DeMeo also conducted a 4-year project in Eritria to increase rainfall in that normally very dry country. The project was, according to his own report, a great success. However the effective range of the cloudbuster is very large, and the weather it creates does not stop at national borders. At the same time the rains were falling on Eritria, they also were falling on surrounding countries, and in neighboring Kenya there were disasterous floods, killing many people, followed by epidemics of water-bourne diseases like cholera and malaria caused by the increase in mosquitos which found favorable breeding conditions in the now water-logged landscape. About 20,000 people died of diseases in Northern Kenya as a result of the successfull cloudbusting operations in nearby Eritria.
Dr. DeMeo has also acted as an advisor for some groups in Europe who look to him for guidance and expertise in cloudbusting. One such group was responsible for a severe storm that killed about 200 people in Central Europe. (4) (8)
DeMeo is the leader of a group called the C.O.R.E. (for Cosmic Orgone Engineering) network. Two other members of the group, Mr. John Schleining and Dr. Stephen Nagy, have on occasion taken it upon themselves to play Smokey the Bear and stop forest fires in Oregon. According to their own reports published in the Journal of Orgonomy, they have caused up to 2.5 inches of rain in a dry summer month which normally has about 0.25 inch. Ten times normal rainfall for that time of year! This is not drought relief; it is blatant disruption.The time to break a years- long drought is in the normal rainy season, not in what is normally the dry season.
Despite what Smokey told these people in grade school, natural wildfires have an important role in forest life-cycles and should not be prevented. They open up stands of trees so some can grow, recycle nutrients back into the soil, help some kinds of seeds germinate, and clear away underbrush that would otherwise accumulate enough in several years to cause an eventual really disastrous fire.By meddling in normal forest fire cycles, Schleining and Nagy are following an outmoded fire-suppression policy which the Forest Service now realizes was a mistake and has abandoned. (6)
According to the same report in the "Journal of Orgonomy", the cloudbuster was also used to prevent fire in another way besides increasing rainfall: it was used to decrease the number of lightning strikes in the area. Now, aside from its role in creating useful and necessary fires, lightning fixes atmospheric nitrogen into compounds plants can utilize. For plant species that lack a symbiotic nitrogen-fixing bacteria on their roots, including many temperate-zone forest trees, lightning plays an essential role as a source of fertilizer, so this application of the cloudbuster, far from benefiting the environment, amounts to mere vandalism of Oregon's forests. (7)
 Documentation of Cloudbuster-related Damage By Dr. DeMeo and His Associates
  (1) My claim that atmospheric dust transport from Africa is essential to South Atlantic and South American ecosystems and that therefore cloudbuster interference with droughts in Africa is irresponsible and damaging is documented by the following:
The New York Times' International Edition on October 29, 1992 contains an article about how hot "October winds scoop up the thin topsoil off the African savanna, swirl it high into the skies, and thrust it west on a journey that can stretch thousands of miles." The article
by Marlise Simons goes on to explain how "the severe and lethal droughts of Africa are a boon for life in the Atlantic Ocean and for soil and vegetation in the Americas."
( Go to a public library and check out: Marlise Simons, "Winds Toss Africa's Soil,
Feeding Lands Far Away," New York Times, October 29, 1992.)

In addition to that New York Times account, There is also an article published in Tellus (1992, 44B, pp 133-149), a scientific journal, on "Saharan Dust in the Amazon Basin." The authors of the article, R. Swap, M. Garstang, and S. Greco of the University of Virginia Department of Environmental Sciences, are the same scientists who are featured in the New York Times account, and they make a compelling case that "Any strategy designed to preserve the Amazonian rain forest or any part thereof should equally concern itself with the inter-relationship between the rainforest, global climate, and the arid zones well removed from Amazonia."
 (2) My source on bird mortality in wet nesting seasons is: Geoff Geupel, Pt. Reyes Bird Observatory, Bolinas, CA  (415) 868-1221 ext 30.
(3) The dates of operations in the Middle East by Dr. DeMeo are in his own report posted on his website. Compare those dates with the following for evidence that those operations killed a number of innocent people:
The January 4, 1992 issue of the "Weekly Climate Bulletin," a newsletter published by the Climate Analysis Center of the United States Department of Commerce's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration  reports on a "New Year's Day storm [which] brought torrential rain and high wind to parts of the Middle East, forcing schools and businesses to close," flooding streets, blanketing Jerusalem with snow, "blacking-out" power for a fourth of the homes, creating "snow...for the first time in the mountains north of the Red Sea resort of Eilat," covering the mountains of northern Saudi Arabia with snow, downing
power lines and telephone lines in Lebanon, causing heavy avalanches in southeastern Turkey, and "killing 22 people."
 The "Global Climate Highlights Feature" page states that "Abnormally cold air has
settled over large sections of northern Africa, the Middle East, south-central Asia, and the Far East during the last two weeks."

 (4)  "I stopped all the financing of cloudbusting as the president of the Wilhelm Reich Society because of the side effects in 1992  because I pointed out that nobody knew about the dangerous side effects of the operations ! As a result, James DeMeo became a furious enemy towards me."
        ------Heiko Lasek
              Berlin, Germany
            (Personal communication to the author.)
 (5) On page 96 of the Pulse of the Planet, #4 issue, there is
a report by DeMeo entitled "OROP ISRAEL 1991-1992," in which [DeMeo] does mention flooding, homes destroyed, and people dying from traffic accidents on flooded roads as a result of the heavy rains occuring after DeMeo's November 1991 cloudbusting operations in the Middle East. 
 Quoting now from DeMeo's own report :
"Our research team had not anticipated the strength of the storms
which subsequently developed in the eastern Mediterranian.... When heavy
rains came, traffic often came to a standstill for hours.  Previously
bone-dry river beds and conduits filled quickly, and overflowed onto major
roads.... A few deaths also occured on the highways due to the fatal
combination of rain-slickstreets and highway speeding, or when people
attempted to drive their cars through rain-swollen streams.... Additional
difficulties also occured in a few areas when power lines were knocked down
by heavy winds or accumulated snow, leaving many persons without power,
sometimes for days."

Here, in his own words, DeMeo admits to having participated in a scientific
experiment which appears to have wreaked havoc on the public while
concurrently serving as the direct or indirect cause of several deaths
(6) My source for forest fire information is: Cascadia Fire Ecology Education Project, P. O. Box 3563, Eugene, OR 97403.  (503) 726-4738.
(7) An article published in "Science News," October 1995 documents an atmospheric chemist by the name of Pud Franzblau has discovered that lightning is a crucial ingredient
involved in the maintainence of life, because it "fixes," or breaks down, the nitrogen atoms
which exist in the air in a form unusable by plants, into a usable form. Up until Franzblau's fieldwork indicated that lightning is responsible for about 1 billion tons of nitrogen fixing (instead of only 10 million tons), researchers had thought that plants were the biggest nitrogen fixers on earth.

 It should be apparent that messing around with the atmosphere with a cloud-buster without an inkling of its ramifications on the generation of lightning could have unforeseen, untoward consequences in the ecological system on nitrogen fixation, plant growth, and human existence.
(8) Der Grund, warum für mich Cloudbusting lange Zeit kein Thema war, war eine Erfahrung, die ich in den 90er Jahren gemacht habe. Bei einer großangelegten Aktion, kam es zu einer internationalen Wetterkatastrophe, in deren Verlauf es etwa 200 Tote und Schäden im Bereich von 100 bis 200 Milliarden Dollar gab. Diese Aktion, an der eine Reihe von Leuten beteiligt waren, die sich heute in der orgonomischen Cloudbusting-Szene lautstark über die positiven Ergebnisse äußern, wurde daraufhin totgeschwiegen. Um keine rechtlichen Probleme zu schaffen, werde ich die genauen Umstände dieser Aktion auch nicht preisgeben. Obwohl diese Aktion (intern) als erfolgreich gewertet wurde, (weil eine monatelange DOR-Situation beendet werden konnte), werden das sowohl die Opfer und deren Angehörigen, wie auch die vielen Menschen, die ihre Existenz verloren haben, anders sehen. Außer den straf- und zivilrechtilichen Folgen, die das für alle Beteiligten haben könnte, wurden auch internationale Abkommen verletzt.

The Cloudbuster: Weapon Of Mass Destruction

The cloudbuster is a simple device invented by Wilhelm Reich to revive exhausted atmospheric energy and it can restore normal weather conditions to a wide area if properly applied. It is the only means known by which an atmosphere that has been damaged by radioactivity can be restored to normal behavior.

 If we lived on a planet inhabited by a sane species, it would be used to do so. But then, if the humans were sane, there would be no need for it because there would be no widespread use of radioactivity in the first place. 

So instead of being used to restore a damaged atmosphere to normal functioning, the cloudbuster is now being misused by fools to "control the weather", as they like to claim. It is an unfortunate side-effect of the cloudbuster that it is able to alter weather conditions in other, more direct, ways than just restoring normal weather patterns. It can be misused to cause rain or stop rain. It can be misused to change the course of a large storm system. It can be misused to bring colder or warmer air masses into a region. It can be misused to allow individuals with a political or economic agenda to inflict the weather they want on an unsuspecting public. 

In his very first publication on cloudbusting, Reich stated: "Lawful regulation of cloudbusting will be essential if chaos is to be avoided". He was right, and since no such regulation is currently in effect, the present situation is the very chaos he predicted.

 The advent of the internet has spread the details of how to build a cloudbuster around the world, available to anyone with a computer, and today there are many websites that tell how to make a workable cloudbuster. And none of them tells anything about how to use it properly and safely.

 Even worse, many of these internet sites are aimed at precisely the wrong sort of people, people from a background in subjects like physics and engineering, people who are infatuated with the ideology of new inventions and new technologies, and people like farmers, with a vested interest in a particular kind of weather, not in a normally-functioning ewnvironment that is good for the entire ecosystem.

In short, people who cannot be expected to understand the concepts behind the cloudbuster or abide by sensible procedures. 

Many of them so misunderstand the concepts or are so fixated on their own brilliance that they imagine they have invented a great new improvement on the original design. None of these "great new improvements" are really an improvement. The cloudbuster is the most simple and direct way to accomplish what it is for. No further improvement is possible because any changes would only make it more complicated and less direct. 

Some of these "new, improved" designs are harmful to the functioning of the atmosphere, and cause droughts and other problems. Many of them incorporate some form of electrical device into the design, and any device using electrical current cannot help the atmospheric energy recover the slow and regualar pulsation that is a prerequisite for normal regularly-recuring rainfall, but only serves to add more irritation to the field surrounding the cloudbuster, and that is transfered to the atmosphere, causing an exacerbation of any previously-existing drought tendency. 

Others make claims for having obtained results that are simply not possible. If someone says he has been able to reliably and consistantly start rain and stop rain within ten minutes every time he tries, he is lying; the atmosphere simply does not respond that way to a cloudbuster, and the fantasies of a control-freak who obviously has never really tried cloudbusting are added to the vast store of misinformation floating around on the internet and help to get more control-freaks interested in the field. 

Some authoritarian personalities enjoy the idea that now, at long last, the weather is under human control, by which they mean, of course, their control, not anyone elses, and they rationalize that they are comic-book superheroes, "saving lives" from bad weather, or rescuing farmers from droughts and floods. But typically, they lack the concept that there can be such a thing as a normal, healthy, well-functioning atmosphere that does not need any intervention and a sick, damaged, malfunctioning atmosphhere that has already been disrupted by what humans have done to it and needs to be healed, not subjected to further disruption. 

And then there are the fantasists who indulge in role-playing games in which they imagine they are fighting off some alien invaders or evil secret plotters in some secret government agency who are attacking earth with some secret chemicals being sprayed out of airplanes or spaceships, and they incorporate cloudsbusters, or sometimes some home-made gadgets they think are cloudbusters, into their game. Most of these role-players are so wrapped up in their fanasy-lives that they get furious and abusive towards anyone who does not join in their fantasy. If you express any disagreement with their ideas, they vehemently accuse you of being in league with the aliens or part of the secret government plot. 

Still others conduct large-scale "desert-greening" projects without any attempt to obtain any input from an ecologist or prepare an environmental impact statement. These people may think they are doing a good deed, but their lack of information on the ecology of the area they are trying to help usually ends up resulting in massive vandalism of the fragile desert ecosystem. 

And some are mystical personalities who think they can learn something useful about how nature functions and how to do cloudbusting from the writings of mystics like Rudolph Steiner, or from dowsing with a pendulum. I have even heard of one group who think they can remove residual radioactivity left over from atomic bomb tests by burning cow manure in a Hindu ritual! 

There are now at least several hundred individuals playing around with cloudbusters, and since the range covered by a single cloudbuster can often exceed several hundred miles, cloudbuster proliferation has become a major environmental problem and the energetic environment of this planet is being subjected to almost constant  assault by hundreds of incompetent, irresponsible operators of home-built cloudbusters, none of whom has any understanding of either ecology or the energetic continuum that underlies all ecological functioning. 

To be done properly, any cloudbusting project should include input from an ecologist right at the start, in the planning stages, and should be closely monitored by an ecologist throughout the project. 

A responsible cloudbuster operator also should post his plans in advance so others who might also be attempting cloudbusting in the same general area will know what is happening and there will be less chance of inadvertent interference with each other. 

A responsible operator would carry insurance to guarentee compensation to anyone who might suffer damages from an operation. 

And a responsible operator would willingly comply with all relevant environmental protection laws. 

 Please feel free to post this article anyplace and send it to any individual of group who you think might be interested and pass it on to your contacts and ask them to do the same.

 In 1987, the late Jay Mikesell and I spent some time at Eva Reichs' place in Maine, having tutoring in Orgone Biophysics from her. We paid her for that tutoring. As far as I know, we were the only ones ever to have such tutoring, and she once told me that of all the people who had asked her about her fathers' work, I was the only one who asked the right questions.   We taped the whole thing, and I still have about 22 hours of the seminar on tape. Maybe someday, if I ever get the money, I will have it transcribed and made into a book.  Since Jay died a few years ago, I guess that leaves me as the only person left to have had training in orgone biophysics from the person Reich designated as his successor. I have a letter from Eva Reich testifying to that, and saying she considers me "very knowledgeable in that field".  Maybe someday, if anyone is interested, I will give a seminar and try to pass on some of that knowledge.  Eva should have been teaching all those years after Reich died; the unfortunate circumstances that removed her as trustee of his estate and effectively prevented her from filling that role could have been countered if funding had been available to set up a school of orgonomy, but it never was. I tried on several occassions to raise funding for orgonomic work, and setting up a venue for her to teach orgonomy was one of my top priorities, but I never was able to raise the money.  And now, with the de facto sequesturation of the Reich Archives apparently becoming permanent, much of the unique body of knowledge brought into being by Wilhelm Reich is apparently lost forever.

Cloudbusters Causing Climate Breakdown

Cloudbusters  Are  Now  In  Second  Place  As  A  Cause  Of  Climate  Breakdown  And  Atmospheric  Destabilization.  Most  Of  The  Deterioration  In  Climate   Stability  That  Is  Conventionally  Being  Ascribed  To  Greenhouse  Gases  Is  In  Fact  Being  Caused  By  Backyard  Hobbyists  Playing  With  Cloudbusters.

1. Water vapor is around 100 times as efficient as a greenhouse gas as CO2 is, and there is at least 100 times as much of it in the atmoasphere, so the net greenhouse effect from water vapor is at least 10,000 times as great as that of CO2. And since the normal variation in the amount of water vapor is more than 15% from any one year to another, any contribution from CO2 would be lost in the background and undetectable.

2. Plants take up CO2 and in sealed greenhouses, with extra CO2 pumped in, they grow bigger and faster. If there were actually more  CO2 in the air today than there was 50 years ago, any old farmer or gardener would tell you his plants are growing bigger now than they did 50 years ago. Since there has been no noticeable increase in plant growth, there has been no increase in CO2,  no matter what the scientists may claim their instruments measure.

3. Moose in New England are moving south. In colonial times, they were found as far south as central New Jersey, but starting in the 1840s, at the end of the Little Ice Age, when the climate became warmer than it had been for the last 400 years, they moved north and when I was growing up in New England, they were found only in Maine and the far north of Vermont and New Hampshire. Now, for the last 30 years, they have been moving south and are now permanent residents in Mass. and have been seen as far south as New Jersey.

The reason is that there is a small fly that gets into their ears and drives them crazy. They stay to the north of its' range. When the climate warmed up in the 1840s, the fly expanded north and the moose moved north to stay away from it. So if the moose are moving south again, that fly is contracting its' range southward, and they are now again able to follow it south.

So the climate, at least during the part of the year in which these flies breed, is getting COLDER, not warmer. And I simply do not care how many scientists say otherwise or what their reasons for saying it might be. They are wrong. And if all the so-called "scientists" on earth say one thing and the moose tell me the opposite, I will trust the moose, not modern science.

The whole issue of climate destabilization has been so politicized that nothing reported in the scientific journals can be trusted. And there is no scientific consensus, no matter what the claims are to the contrary. But even if there was a consensus, science is not a democracy and the question of who is right cannot ever be settled by a vote. It can only be settled by citing the EVDENCE, not by citing the numbers of scientists who believe it. It is entirely possible for 100% of all scientists to be dead wrong on some issue. That has happened many times.

Any scientist who thinks the climate is gettting warmer is simply going according to a theory and ignoring the evidence. The greenhouse gases theory is wrong, but it happens to be the only theory they know of, so they go with it in spite of evidence to the contrary.

Most climate scientists today do not even look at any evidence outside their offices. What they look at are computer print-outs. They do almost all their work with computer models, not observations of the natural world outside their windows. And a computer model is only as good as the assumptions they put into it.

They see changes happening in climate. That is true. And they see that the changes match the growth in numbers and industrial activity of humans. That is also true. And they see the match in time as evidence that there is a cause and effect relationship between climate changes and human activities. That is also true.

 But then they make a typical mistake that is very common in science. They do not know any way to explain how human actions could be causing the climate changes except the greenhouse gases theory, so they conclude that it must be greenhouses gases that are causing the climate changes.

They are wrong. The bulk of the climate collapse is being caused by oranur effects. Oranur is caused by radioactivity. It is caused by electromagnetic technology. It is augmented by deforestation and daming rivers and ploughing and paving and over-grazing, all of which interfere with the natural re-processing of the DOR which is the long-term residue of oranur back into healthy, motile living energy. In short, there is an orgonomic explanation for the observed climate collapse that does not depend on the CO2-acting-as-greenhouse-gas theory.

The climate is changing. But it is not getting warmer. It is also not getting colder. What it is doing is getting warmer and colder. It is getting wetter and drier. In short, it is getting more random. It is getting more variable. It is getting more chaotic and fluctuating more widely. It is going to extremes. It is pulsating more rapidly and with greater amplitude.

On a statistical graph, this will look as if things are normal because a very hot summer and a very cold winter average out to a normal year. A very warm winter and a cool summer will also average out to a normal year. So to a scientist, with the usual mechanistic fixation on numbers, there will have been a normal year, while to any living organism, there will have been two disasters instead of one.

Most of of what is being attributed to global warming and blamed on greenhouse effect from extra CO2 in the air is really due to oranur, and its' after-effect, DOR. Most of that is from the use of radioactivity, both civilian and military. The rest is from electrical technology and bad land use practices like deforestation. If there is a component from industral pollution, it is a very small one, probably less than that from forest fires.

The direct biological effects of radioactivity have been intensively studied, and are well-known, even if not as well understood. But the meteorological effects have not been studied by anyone except Reichians and one physicist I spoke to once in Lithuania, whose work has not been published in English, and he told me he has not been able to get funding to do more research on the subject since 1988.

The second most important contribution to climate breakdown, after oranur, is cloudbusting. A single cloudbuster has a range of hundreds, sometimes thousands, of kilometers. In fact, the long-range effects can sometimes be global in extent. And there are now hundreds, possibly even thousands, of cloudbusters around.

 Cloudbusters are the second most important form of atmospheric pollution after oranur. They are the second most important reason for climate destabilization. And they are growing in numbers at so rapid a rate that they could even surpass the nuclear industry in the near future in terms of the damage done to the environment, at least as far as direct meteorological damage, though probably not yet in terms of long-term biological damage. And so far, nobody except the few people on this list is even aware of the problem.

And while there is an hysterical world-wide politicized movement of unscientific global warming pushers promoting the false claim that a greenhouse effect from combustion-produced gases is causing climate changes, nobody except the people who read this are going to do anything about the cloudbuster problem that is the real cause of much of the climate destabilization.

Cirrus clouds and the DOR Ceiling

Cirrus cloud - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the last few decades, actually beginning in 1945, at the start of the Atomic Age, there has been an increase in the amount and / or frequency of high-altitude thin cloud cover. Such high thin clouds now often fill the entire sky and sometimes for days at a time.

This high thin haze was described in the 1950s by Reich in his account of his trip across America to Arizona. He attributed it to the atomic bomb testing program which at that time was setting off atomic bombs in the atmosphere on a weekly basis. According to Reich, the  atmospheric energy continuum which underpins both the movement of the atmosphere and its' chemical composition, was being affected by the intense radioactivity from the bombs and the haze and stagnation was the result.

Reich found by his cloudbuster operations in Arizona that he was better able to  remove this stagnated condition when he took his cloudbuster up into the mountains, where he could  aim down at the cloud cover instead of aiming up at it from the valley floor. He was impressed enough by the advantage of elevation that when he returned to the East Coast, he consulted with an engineer from the Sikorsky helicopter company in Connecticut about the possibility of doing cloudbusting from a helicopter, but at the time, there was no helicopter capable of lifting a large enough tank of water to enable cloudbusting from the air.

After his death, during the Viet Nam war, larger helicopters were built, which could lift a tank of water weighing several tons, enough to connect a cloudbuster to. But by that time, the DOR-ceiling over most of the United States had risen too high for a helicopter to get above it. The average altitude of large area contiguous DOR over North America was around 5,000 ft ( 1524 meters ) in Reichs' time, and is now around 40,000 ft. ( 12,192 meters ), which happens to be about the usual altitude of commercial jet aircraft on long-haul flights.

The apparent cause of the increase in DOR and the increase in height and extent of the DOR ceiling, is the great amount of radioactivity from decades of nuclear bombs, nuclear reactors, re-processing of nuclear fuel rods, and other radioactive industrial processes, along with the large increase in electromagnetic equipment in use, including radar, microwave trasmissions, and high-voltage powerlines. Adding to the amount of DOR in the atmosphere are the reductions in the natural ability to re-mobilize DOR caused by deforestation, the damming of large rivers, and the denuding of large areas of the earths' surface by livestock grazing, agriculture, and urban sprawl.

The spread of DOR across the visible sky has therefore become almost contiguous, with very little natural, healthy sky still visible in many places for much of the time. This has not gone unnoticed by both meteorologists and the public. Not surprisingly, since so few people are aware of the findings of Reich and the developments that have followed in the field of orgonomy in more recent decades, there are theories that have been developed to explain the change in the amount of high thin cloud cover, and those theories are wide of the mark.

The common theory in meteorology holds that in order for a raindrop to form from water vapor in the atmosphere, there must first be a tinty particle of solid material for the vapor to condense around. This theory is called the "condensation nucleus" theory. According to it, each and every single raindrop must form around a solid particle, and if no particles are present, no raindrops can form.

It is this theory that forms the theoretical basis for the practice of "cloudseeding", which consists of releasing large amounts of tiny particles into the air, either from an aircraft or from a burrner on the ground, to provide the needed condensation nuclei for water vapor to condense on and form raindrops. Silver iodine is the prefered  particlulate matter because it is considered the best size of crystal to condense water vapor.

The main theory proposed by meteorologists to explain the increase in thin, high-altitude cloud cover is that there has been an increase in visible clouds because of the ice crystals formed by the water vapor in the contrails of jet aircraft flying at those elevations.

Cirrus cloud - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There are several serious problems with this theory, however. Anyone who has ever watched as a cloudbuster fills the formerly clear sky with clouds can testify that clouds can form without any particulates for them to condense around. The cloudbuster does not put out any particulates of anything.

 In fact, several meteorologists have told me that since the cloudbuster does not create any particles for water vapor to condense on, it could not possibly create clouds. In their view, I must be mistaken. I could not possibly have seen what I tell them I saw because the conensation nucleus theory requires a large number of tiny particles to be present in the air for condensation of water vapor into raindrops to take place.

So, instead of changing the theory to fit the eyewitness testimony, the "scientists" would rather refuse to accept the evidence because of their theory. Needless to say, since I was there and I know what I saw, and they were not there, and did not see it, I consider them, not I, to be mistaken.

But there is reason even for one unaware of cloudbusting to disbelieve the condensation nucleus theory. If you fly a small aircraft through a cloud, the windscreen will get wet. Fly out the other side of the cloud, and the water will soon evaporate, leaving it clean, not streaked with dust as it would be if the cloud was full of dust particles.

Hold a glass microscope slide in a rain, catch raindrops on it, and place the slide under the microscope. Do you see any tiny particles in the center of each raindrop? I did this and found no particles in most raindrops. So I am skeptical of the theory that every raindrop must have condensed around a particle of solid material in the atmosphere.

So for several good reasons, I consider the condensation nucleus theory to be wrong and the alternative, orgonomic, theory, that rain is formed by the merger of energy streams in the atmosphere, to be proven by the frequent observation that altering the energetic parameters of the atmospghere will cause clouds and rain to form.

And from that it follows that the theory of high-altitude thin cloud cover being formed by condensation on ice crystals from jet aircraft contrails is also wrong. What is being seen in the sky and taken for clouds of water condensing on ice crystals is really nothing of the kind. It is what Reich refered to as the "DOR ceilling".

 And it is a haze, a stagnation of the atmospheric energy that can look "glaring" and "white" at a distance and under strong lighting conditions. It is caused by the dying of the planetary energy field due to continual assault by technologies that expose it to intense secondary energies, nuclear and electromagnetic, along with the reduction in the capacity of the earth to absorb and recover from such assaults.

It is therefore ironic that some people are refering to these high, thin sheets of DOR, which appear to be clouds, as "man-made clouds", which is certainly correct, but meaning it in a very different way. They are not thinking these clouds are caused by DOR, or that man is indeed creating them by his nuclear and electrical industries, augmented by his devastation of the natural recovery systems of the earth through bad land use practices. They are instead thinking these clouds are "man made" because they are being formed by the contrails from high-flying aircraft.

And, according to one of my correspondents, there have been some cases of people who have no idea what they are doing, thinking the DOR cover they see is created by aircraft contrails, are trying to disipate it with woefully inadequate home-made toy versions of the cloudbuster.

 In their ignorance, they are making a bad situation worse by using poorly designed, poorly grounded equipment that will excite the atmosphere into an even greater state of chronic expansion, leading to intensifying and prolonging any drought tendencies that already exist in their areas.

A properly done, fully-funded cloudbusting program on a global scale could still reverse the decline in the atmospheric energy field and keep this planet habitable for a time, perhaps even long enough to bring the Atomic Age to an end. But poorly designed home-built equipment in the hands of hobbyists pointing it at the sky at random, without any co-operation between them and without any basic understanding of the energetic functioning of the atmosphere will only make things worse.

And they are bad enough already without any more cloudbuster-game players playing their silly games with the atmosphere.

This Is The Planet Of The Worms

This Is The Planet Of The Worms---And We Had Better Realize How Important They Are

Invention is the mother of necessity. For every invention, there is an equal and opposite problem created. The impression one is taught in school, of a steady line of inventions being added to the list, each one a solution to a problem that existed previously and was solved by that invention, is a false one. The facts are that every invention has both advantages and drawbacks, and usually, the advantages are seen and the drawbacks ignored untill it is too late to avoid them.

A good example is the horsecollar. It came into common use in Europe in the late Middle Ages, long after oxen were used to plow fields, which started in early antiquity. An ox can pull a plough with a rope around its' neck, but a horse would choke if that was tried. The invention of a way to shift the weight from the neck to the shoulders of a horse meant it could be used to pull a plough. And since a horse is much faster than an ox, that meant a much larger area of land could be cultivated in a day by the same number of workers.

So food production boomed. And large areas of forest were cleared for farming. And the population of Europe boomed. And the cycle repeated itself, with ever-more people and ever more land being cleared to feed them. So most of the land of Europe was cleared. And there were extinctions of most of the large animals of Europe. And the larger population caused crowded conditions that led to plagues that killed many of the people.

And there were wars fought that would never have been fought in the days when the population was much smaller. And there were expeditions to other continents to size control of resources. So there was slavery and colonization and genocide. And much of the bloody history of the past several centuries was written because of the horsecollar.

Now, there is another invention being claimed to be a boon for food production. The cloudbuster. It is being said that with this invention, it will be possible to bring the deserts of the world under cultivation. The people promoting this idea say this will make possible the feeding of the ever-growing population of those poor countries. And they say this would be a good thing for the people of those countries.

There are some reasons to question their assumptions, however. They could start by looking at what types of farming the increased water in the desert would make possible.

Because it would certainly not be organic farming or farming of traditional crops by traditional methods. The addition of water to desert sand does not always mean fertile soil. The sand, with water added, still needs a lot of organic material mixed in with it to be able to support more than the hardy pioneer species that recolonize areas that have been devastated by something like a forest fire, cultivation, or desert conditions that may have lasted for centuries. The less hardy species will have to wait until the soil has been prepared for them by the pioneer plants that can grow under less benevolent conditions.

 The real tillers of the soil are the earthworms, which form a majority of the biomass of this planet, and whose ceaseless activity is the basis of all plant growth on earth. Unless the worm population is big enough, the newly irrigated desert land will remain a useless waste of hardy crabgrass-like species, unable to develop further until recolonization by worms has taken place.

How long would that take? It depends on the size of the area that must be recolonized. In the case of the Sahara, an area about the size of the continental United States, it could take several centuries from the time there was sufficient rainfall to support climax  vegetation until there was a soil that could fully contribute to that growth. Worms would have to slowly spread from around the edges to the interior of the newly moist area until they met in the center. Then, after there was an initial worm mass in the soil, it would still take many years until the worm population had increased enough to render the soil ferrtile enough to be able to support a climax vegetation.

But since humans cannot be expected to wait that long, they would have to add artificial fertilizers to the soil instead. And those fertilizers would have to be made in factories from oil. And they are expensive. So the project would have to be large enough for the loans it would need to be made available. 

And the cost of the loans and fertilizers would have to be paid in money earned from export of food grown on the formerly desert land. And since that would require loans from international banks and investments by overseas investors, those investors and banks would be the owners of the project. And that would mean the benefits of the project for the local population would end up being a lot less than the promoters think they would be.

The cloudbuster is not a quick fix for all problems. As long as the present social and economic system is in place, no matter who does what with a cloudbuster, the same people who now own the world will own whatever benefits result. And the same people who do not own the world at present will still have to pay for anything that goes wrong.

And if history is any guide, something will.

Cloudbusting, Farming, And Population

Many of the people who decide to try cloudbusting are farmers or if not farmers themselves, they cite "helping farmers" and "producing more food" as one of their main reasons for cloudbusting. But so far, to the best of my information, not one of them has ever been active in any effort to reduce demand for food by reducing the population, something that could reduce the need they think exists for interfering with the functioning of the atmosphere to grow more food.

Several vegans have suggested there would be less land needed to grow grain if people gave up eating meat. The reasoning seems to be that since cattle are fed grain, and eat more than humans would, the grain saved by not feeding them could be eaten by humans.

That thinking overlooks the fact that it is only in the United States, with 5% of the world population, and a few other first-world countries, mainly in Northern Europe, all with small populations, that cattle are fed on grain. In most of the world, cattle are raised only on grass, and the land used to graze them is marginal land not good for growing crops, which is why it is used for grazing.

So if that land was no longer used for grazing, other land, now in a more or less natural state, not in use, would have to be cleared to grow the extra crops that would be needed to feed the people that portion of their diet that now comes from grass via cattle. This is shown in Brazil, where a lot of rain forest has been cleared to grow soybeans to export to Europe and America to be eaten by people who have been convinced to take up a vegan diet.

It can also be seen in Southeast Asia, where large tracts of rain forest have been cleared to grow palms to provide vegetable oil for export to Europe and North America for vegetatrians and vegans to use in cooking. So, instead of killing cows, these well-meaning but uninformed people are indirectly killing elephants and orangutans by depriving them of their habitat.

One recent correspondent sent me an article that claims the earth could grow enough food for twice the current population on the same amount of land by improved farming methods.

I replied:

"An interesting article. But it has a number of flaws. It does not even touch on the immense damage done to the natural plant life by modern methods of farming, such as genetic modification of plants used for crops. Animal life also is harmed by modern farming methods like that, as in the case of bees needed to pollenate plants being killed by GM plants they feed from, and lab rats being rendered sterile by eating GM foods.

Growing more crops is not the answer. It is only the answer Monsanto and other  purveyors of agricultural chemicals and GM seeds want to sell as the answer.

 If only safe and ecologically sound farming methods were used, only a small fraction of what is grown today could be grown. It is true that modern cattle raising is a very harmfull practice, but if the best replacement for it is to grow more crops with modern agricultural methods, that could be even worse.

To really do any good, it is not enough to replace one evil with another, and posibly worse one. We need to solve the root problem, too many people on this planet, not just switch them from one form of destruction to another by changing their diets. The problem is not what these people eat. It is that there are too many of them that are eating anything.

And feeding them with imports from Mars would not solve the problem either because the total human ecological footprint on the earth is far, far greater than just what  is done to provide food. If there were more people, there would be more demand for electricity, fuel oil, highways, forest products, more urban sprawl, more pollution, more rivers damed, more nuclear reactors built, and a long list of other demands on the earth, "

I am still awaiting a reply.

Now, if someone is really concerned about how well people eat, and also about protecting the environment, I would expect that person to already, before even ever having heard of cloudbusting, to be active in the movement to reduce population, and in combating the evil, criminally insane religions that oppose doing anything to solve the population problem.

 If someone who has never tried to work on that issue says he wants to intervene in the functioning of the atmosphere to "help farmers" or "prevent famine", he is probably guilty of self-deception and I would suspect him of being more interested in power-tripping and the emotional satisfaction and feeling of power from being in control of the weather than in helping anyone. After all, if he has never tried to help solve a problem until he hears of cloudbusting, why should he suddenly want to solve it with a cloudbuster when he never was too concerned about it before?

Cloudbusting can and should be used to restore normal atmospheric functioning in cases where the atmosphere is not functioning naturally and needs help to recover. But cloudbusting is not a solution to the problem of too many people all wanting to eat and too much land being needed to feed tham all.

The cloudbuster is not a way to add the deserts of the world to the farms of the world. In places where deserts are the result of human activity, such as deforestation or over-grazing of livestock, simply increasing rainfall would not help much. The rain would soon stop again if the reason the landscape became a desert in the first place was human use, unless it was allowed to regain its' original vegetation cover and remain undisturbed as a natural ecosystem and not be ploughed up and cultivated as soon as possible. .

Cloudbuster-aided recovery of lands that have been deserts for ages due to some ancient catastrophe, could be done eventually, but it would take many years, possibly even centuries after the return of full atmosphericpulsation and normal weather, for the ecosystems of those lands to fully recover. Creating rain in a desert area without first removing the DOR barriers that obstruct approching weather fronts, and then ploughing the newly irrigated land, would be adding additional vandalism to the damage already done by desertification, and would delay recovery of the ecosystem by many more years if an attempt at real recovery was ever made at some later date.

Altering normal or seasonal weather in an ecosystem that is functioning well already, but not suitable for commercially valued crops, would be a willful destruction of a properly functioning ecosystem merely to change it into farmlands, useless for anything except growing food for an ever-growing human population that can never be satisfied.

So cloudbusting should not be thought of as a panacea to enable unrestrained population growth by irrigating deserts to turn them into farms. The cloudbuster is not just another method of irrigation. It is not a farm tool.

Properly speaking, the cloudbuster is a form of medical treatment, on a landscape scale. And it should be used in the spirit of a medical treatment, for the health of the patient, the earth. It is the only means by which an injured and dying ecosystem can be restored to health. And that is its' only legitimate purpose.
