movement of orgone energy in 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 have taken it up as a
often imagining themselves to be fighting off hostile UFOs, resisting a secret
government plot of some kind, or changing "bad" atmospheric energy into "good".
They usually have no idea of the scientific basis upon which the cloudbuster
works, or fantasize 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.
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".
suppressed about the cloudbuster, it is regarded as crackpot by the scientific
community, in large part because of the absurd fictions and folklore with which it
has become surrounded. The fantastic legends of 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 risks and benefits of the cloudbuster he invented.
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 problem and thinking the climate changes which are so obvious are caused by some other factor, such as greenhouse effect from combustion products released into the atmosphere.
and climate on this planet must take the social phenomena of a mass movement of cloudbuster hobbyists into account. And until that is done, the environmental movement will not be able to mount an effective effort to counter this form of blatant interference with the atmosphere.
