A new article in Foreign Policy suggests that geoengineering (or weather engineering) may be part of the next high-tech battle strategy for troops who want a force multiplier. The article is an updated version of an essay by futurist Jamais Cascio. Others have already speculated about how the ability to control rain systems and pull down lightening may be the future of warfare. In fact, all the technologies to do this already exist. But Cascio thinks forced ecosystem imbalances may be the weapon of choice for offensive geoengineers. “It’s only a matter of time before the world’s militaries learn to use the Earth itself as a weapon,” Cascio writes. He speculates about how climate change and global warming could also be weaponized.
YAY! Let´s kill terrorists with lightning bolts or shove a tornado up their asses!
Okay back to being serious, am I the only one thinking that this could go horribly wrong?
That by mistake they create a super tornado and that destroys the earth, worth thinking about..
