Many years ago, I visited Australia and conducted the first-ever expedition there to use a device called a cloudbuster, shown in the photo above, to break a drought Queensland was experiencing at that time. While I was successful in getting rain, I was not able to convince the Grain-growers Association or the Department Of Primary Industry that I was the cause of the rain.
Today, over 40 years later, I want to call to your attention a serious environmental issue you might not know about yet.
The recent floods in Queensland were caused by someone in Brisbane fooling around with such a homemade weather-control machine in his backyard. I know just how unbelievable that sounds, but the machine does exist.And there is a long record of serious environmental damage being inflicted on unsuspecting populations by people using it without knowing what they are doing.
At the time of my own early attempts in Queensland, very few people knew anything about the cloudbuster, and little was known of how to use it. Mistakes were made, as would be almost certain to happen in exploring the use of any new technology. Today, much more is known and there is a large and growing body of scientific publications attesting to the effectiveness of this method of intervention in the weather.
But today, thanks to the internet, and numerous websites posting exact details of how to construct a cloudbuster for a few hundred dollars, there are also several hundred people all over the world building these rather simple machines and fooling around with them in their backyards as a sort of hobby. And almost none of them has the proper training to know how to use them safely.
So I have started a campaign against the wrongful use of cloudbusters. I am not totally against all cloudbusting. Far from it. I think the cloudbuster is an important invention, perhaps the most important to come along in centuries, and if properly used, with due regard for ecology, could be of enormous value. But used improperly, and without any input from an ecologist, as is far more common these days than the correct use of it, it becomes a major environmental problem.
It is often possible to tell from the weather maps and other public information if someone is using a cloudbuster in an area and if a particular weather event is natural or not. I have set up a blog, www.orgonomicecology.blogspot.com and you are invited to take a look at some of the articles I have posted there and learn more about the issue.
Then, if you think you might want to help do something about this threat to the stability of the Australian weather system, please contact me. I have a number of tactics in mind that a group of activists in Australia could use to put some pressure on the psychopath who caused the floods there and influence him to take up some other hobby.
It seems that in Australia, unlike in America, weather modification is required to obtain a speficic legislative act authorizing it and is otherwise considered to fall under the National Parks and Wildlife Act of 1974, the Wilderness Act of 1987, the Fisheries Management Act of 1994, Threatened Species Act, 1995, Local Government Act, 1993, Protection of the Environment Operations Act, 1997, and Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, 1979.
Any weather modification done without a legislative act exempting it from these Acts is a violation of them. But since the Crown Prosecutor''s office are reluctant to initiate criminal prosecutions due in large part to the common misconception that nothing can be done to influence the weather, a civil suit in the civil court system is an alternative that should be explored.
For that, I cannot do much over the internet. I need allies on the ground. So if you are interested in helping protect your country from incompetent, irresponsible use of what would otherwise be a wonderful invention, please take a look at my blog and then let me know. Thank you.
