Arid regions are influencing their
weather using electrical technology.
a recent press release, the United Arab Emirates
successfully caused rain to fall by making use of negative ion
generators. Approximately 50 rainstorms fell in the driest months,
during which time weather forecasters did not predict any rain at
Scientists installed a network of interconnected conductors in the
desert that release clouds of negatively charged ions. As the
particles rise in the hot air, they attract water vapor in the
atmosphere, since water is a dipolar molecule with both positive and
It is commonly believed that weather on Earth is driven by the Sun's
thermal influence on the atmosphere. As we rotate beneath our
primary, gases and dust absorb solar radiation at varying rates and
in varying degrees.
When any particular region heats up, the air expands and loses
density, creating a relative low pressure area. Cooler air, being
denser, will naturally flow into the bottom of the warm, low
pressure region, causing an upwardly rotating convection cell to
form. Most weather systems on Earth are thought to be based on that
simple kinetic explanation: winds blow when the cooler, denser air
flows into the warmer, buoyant air.
However, ions attract water in the atmosphere instead of through the
commonly described process of neutral dust motes building up
raindrops through a process of condensation. The dust hanging in the
air becomes charged, making it more attractive to water vapor.
Since Earth is immersed in the stream of ions permeating space, it
holds an electric field at its surface of 50 – 200 volts per meter.
The electricity from space carried by ionic particles emitted by the
Sun, otherwise known as the “solar wind,” speeds along massive
Birkeland currents through a circuit connecting the Sun with our
planet. Water molecules are electric dipoles and are attracted to an
opposite polar charge, such as that on another water molecule, so
they clump together, aligned within Earth’s “fair weather field.”
in September of 2006 that a major premise of Electric
Universe theory was confirmed:
Earth weather is electrically
connected to the ionosphere. Since electricity always flows in a
circuit, if the ionosphere connects to Earth's magnetosphere then it
connects to the circuits of the Solar System, as well.
The ionosphere is connected to the Sun by twisting filaments of
electric current, so the lower levels of the atmosphere must also
experience the Sun's influence because of the additional circuit
node that connects them with the ionosphere.
Could these electric
circuits linking the atmosphere with the Sun have anything to do
with Earth's climate in either the short or long term?
This leads to the more general idea that all weather may be
influenced by the electrical connection between Earth and solar
plasma. The larger view has only recently been considered, so
experiments designed to verify the effect that charged particles
have on Earth's weather are now being conducted. It appears that
they are having some success.
Electric Universe physicist Wal Thornhill
"If conventional theory fails to
explain electrical storms it cannot be used to discount the
results of ionization experiments. Instead, conventional theory
suffers doubts about its basic plausibility. Weather experts
have a limited view of the electrical nature of the Earth and
The 'enormous power input' is freely
available from the galaxy. That galactic electrical power drives
the weather systems on all of the planets and even the Sun. So
the ionization experiment is rather like the control gate in a
transistor, where a small current into the control gate
influences the entire power output of the transistor.
This method of weather control
should eventually force the critics to think again."
