Weather modification has been ongoing for decades in the United States. It was perfected during the Vietnam War leading to the ENMOD Treaty signed by the United States. However, this has not stopped a whole host of weather modification programs and experiments being initiated or are now ongoing in the United States and with increasing frequency in many foreign countries.
The profound impact of these ever-increasing and highly sophisticated weather experiments and programs are radically changing our climate and local weather conditions in many areas. Your local weathermen are not reporting these events leading many to believe that some man-made weather is either extreme or unusual...thus, the public is unaware of many of these programs.
These exponentially growing programs have no government or public oversight, limited oversight in a very few states which allow them, and no government or public oversight or consent for the rest of them. These programs change the climate, the micro-climates needed for watersheds, negatively impact tree health, and agriculture crop production. NOAA lists some of these programs but most are not listed due to their experimental nature, military classification, university experiments, and failures to notify NOAA by various states, counties, cities, weather modification companies, and private individuals and corporations who may all modifying your weather.
Your local weather forecasters either don't know about or deliverately won't report on ongoing experimental weather modification programs letting the public believe that the weather that they are experiencing is unusual or extremem without identifying any ongoing weather modification programs. These weather modification experiments, if known by the public, could lead to liability lawsuits due to damage caused by these programs to be levied against those conducting these experiments, which include, but are not limited to, private indidivduals, corporations, military experiments, and programs initiated by cities, counties, states, and other government agencies.
Climate change and global warming are blamed for some unusual weather events by meterologists. Thus, they can escape from telling you the truth about these experiments pretending that there is nothing the public can do about these events. The Weather Channel and local newscasters, to my knowlege do not report on current and ongoing weather modification programs, even when they are taking place, according to the National Weather Service (See Interview on C-SPAN September 2, 2011).
U.S. Senate Bill S601 (introduced by Senator Kay Bail Hutchison-Texas), was not passed by the U.S. Senate in 2010. Senator Hutchison has introduced a version of this bill each year since 2005, and the public has lobbied successfully to stop passage. It is highly likely that Senator Hutchison will again introduce a similar version of this bill in the Senate in 2011 or 2012. This bill allows anyone to mitigate or modify your weather without public notification, consent, oversight or debate. This bill could also be added as an amendment to other legislation and passed. The implication for agriculture, watersheds, water supplies, and who will receive the benefits or the negative consequences are hidden from public view.
It is time for all of us to examine these experimental weather modification programs and who is benefitting from them financially...who is suffering the consequences of these uncontrolled programs...and how much crop production in the United States is being reduced due to these programs which may leave many ranchers and farmers without enough rainfall-in drought condistions or with low water supplies or with too much snow.
There are many questions and few answers due to the fact that few people in the United States know very little, if anything, about these programs and how extensive they are at this time. The information on these experimental weather modification and mitigation programs is from the NOAA office in Maryland and we have listed these programs on this website for the last several years (See Listing Below).

Definition of 'Weather Derivative' http://www.investopedia.com/terms/w/weatherderivative.asp#axzz2ExQTkOvR
An instrument used by companies to hedge against the risk of weather-related losses. The investor who sells a weather derivative agrees to bear this risk for a premium. If nothing happens, the investor makes a profit. However, if the weather turns bad, then the company who buys the derivative claims the agreed amount.

(Note: H.A.A.R.P. The High Altitude Auroral Research Program in Alaska may have the capability to change the climate and the weather, alter the jet stream trajectory, and interfere with the Ionosphere performing it Earth protecting functions due to HAARP Ionospheric Experiments.)
Note: We know that some areas of the world are having changing weather and climate patterns. And the ADC position is the experimental weather modification programs and atmospheric testing experiments are responsible for some of the climate and weather pattern changes.
Water Vapor is a highly potent greenhouse gas and is emitted by aircraft engines, especially jet engines into the atmosphere. It should be noted that the impact of water vapor and aviation on the global atmosphere is rarely mentioned and yet the negative impacts and warming of the Arctic and Alaska could be, in part, directly attributed to aviation. (There are several studies which show the warming can be attributed to water vapor, jet contrails, man-made clouds produced by jets, jet fuel emissions, and aviation.)

COLUSA, Calif. -- In yet another sign of odd weather in Northern California, a tornado was seen on the ground Monday near Interstate 5 in Colusa County. A tornado warning was issued for the Colusa and Glenn county areas. Images -- Tornado Passes Over Colusa County The tornado was seen in Maxwell, Mark Finan said, and then shifted toward Live Oak. A caller told KCRA 3 that the tornado was seen over Mcdermott Road. Schools in the area have not been evacuated, according to Ron Turner at the Maxwell Unified School District. Turner said a bus carrying 20 students were held at Maxwell High School until the tornado warning passed. So far, no damage has been reported.

Australian Goverment Defends $10Million Grant for Untested Rain-Making Technology
In June 2010 Australia announced a fast-start package of A$599 million for the three years from 2010 to 2012 for climate change (http://www.climatechange.gov.au/government/international/finance.aspx) and then our climate did change! in a big catastrophic way!

ludicrous. For the governments who

ELEANOR HALL: The Federal Government is defending its decision to award $10-million to a company to trial rain-making technology.
The Environment Minister Malcolm Turnbull has announced the grant to the Australian Rain Corporation, a company part-owned by Rupert Murdoch's nephew, Matt Handbury.
But researchers commissioned by the National Water Commission to investigate the technology have questioned whether the $10-million grant should have been awarded now, saying a more careful evaluation of the science is needed first.

"...People around the world are noticing that our planet's weather is dramatically changing. They are also beginning to notice the long lingering trails left behind airplanes that have lead millions to accept the reality of geoengineering programs and experiments. Could there be a connection between the trails and our severe weather? While there are many agendas associated with these damaging programs, evidence is now abundant which proves that geoengineering can be used to control weather. In this documentary you will learn how the aerosols being sprayed into our sky are used in conjunction with other technologies to control our weather. While geoengineers maintain that their models are only for the mitigation of global warming, it is now clear that they can be used as a way to consolidate an enormous amount of both monetary and political power into the hands of a few by the leverage that weather control gives certain corporations over the Earth's natural systems.

"...Atmospheric Rivers (ARs), are the water-vapor rich part of the broader warm conveyor belt (e.g., Browning, 1990; Carlson, 1991), that is found in extratropical cyclones ("storms"). They result from the action of winds associated with the storm drawing together moisture into a narrow region just ahead of the cold front where low-level winds can sometimes exceed hurricane strength. The term atmospheric river was coined in a seminal scientific paper published in 1998 by researchers Zhu and Newell at MIT (Zhu and Newell 1998). Because they found that most of the water vapor was transported in relatively narrow regions of the atmosphere (90% of the transport occurred typically in 4-5 long, narrow regions roughly 400 km wide), the term atmospheric river was used..."

"...The government directed the army to do "cloud seeding" for the next two months, where planes fly through the clouds while they're still over the ocean, dropping tons and tons of salt. Although this method is somtimes used to produce rain in times of severe drought, in this case they are trying to expunge the clouds of rain before they head to land. "We are mimicking nature. It is easy to make rain in most clouds above the sea. We found out that salt from sea water, which evaporates from the sea, accelerates the rain process because it encourages the cloud particles to adsorb water," Tri Handoko Seto, a top official of the Weather Modification Technical Unit of the Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology, told SciDev.Net. The government believes the effort is showing success, because they were able to avoid meteorogist predictions of heavy rains and floods from January 26-29, 2013..."
