Patent for weather modification?
Method and apparatus for altering a region in the earth’s atmosphere, ionosphere, and/or magnetosphere
>For example, as a plasma moves upward, other particles at the same altitude as the plasma move horizontally into the region to replace the rising plasma and to form new plasma. The kinetic energy developed by said other particles as they move horizontally is, for example, on the same order of magnitude as the total zonal kinetic energy of stratospheric winds known to exist.
