Are Home Cloudbusters Tampering With The Weather?
By James Donahue
The fast changing weather patterns around the world have been blamed
on the rising levels of carbon dioxide from the millions of cars, trucks, ships, aircraft and factories belching exhaust from
our excessive use of carbon-based fuels.
But what if there is another silent factor at play here? As the planet
warms we have all been suspicious of those contrails criss-crossing our skies. Some believe military aircraft are regularly
spewing fine particles of aluminum, boride and other metals designed to deflect the heat of the sun. Others theorize that
the government is using new technology like HAARP to stop hurricanes and severe storm fronts. But instead of helping, the
technology is making everything worse.
That is just one conspiracy theory.
Another unexpected theory was introduced recently by Joel Carlinsky,
who says he once studied orgone biophysics under Dr. Eva Reich, the daughter of the late Austrian-American scientist Wilhelm
Reich, inventor of the infamous "cloudbuster."
Those who know about Dr. Reich know that he designed the cloudbuster
to manipulate orgone energy in the atmosphere to produce rain. Reich, a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, claimed that orgone
was a natural cosmic energy that streams through the body as well as all things in existence. He believed that illness was
caused by depletion or blockages of this energy within the body. He treated patients by having them sit in "orgone accumulators"
designed like large, hollow capacitors.
Reich’s radical treatments and his books attracted the attention
of the press, and eventually led to accusations of fraud. His books on orgone energy were seized and burned, and Reich was
eventually tossed in prison where he died in 1957.
His work and his books were not forgotten, however, and Reich has
since gone down in American history as a legend and somewhat of a folk hero. Some say Reich was a genius who made such an
amazing discovery, the medical community conspired to shut him down and bring a halt to his work before it put doctors out
According to American mythology, Reich’s "cloudbuster" was considered
so dangerous by the government, that anyone caught building such a device was subject to arrest and imprisonment. We are not
sure that is true, since the Internet is ripe with plans for building these devices.
Carlinsky, who maintains a blog page at is campaigning to get a strange proliferation
of cloudbusters, being manufactured by home hobbists and would-be "stop the drought" enthusiasts, under control. He warns
that these simple-to-manufacture devices are an ancient technology that has become a major environmental problem.
"I have been campaigning for laws to require some responsibility and
transparency in the cloudbusting field," Carlinsky wrote. "As of now, anyone who wants to build a cloudbuster and do whatever
he wants with the weather is free to do so."
While long known as a natural way to regulate a damaged or stagnated
atmosphere, the cloudbuster operators now in the hands of "incompetent irresponsible operators" may be causing the severe
flooding and other weather-related damage and led to the deaths of thousands, Carlinsky said.
He calls them "cheap and easily-made weapons of mass destruction."
If we allow this to continue unchecked, he believes "the atmosphere will become too unreliable to allow us to survive."
So what is a cloudbuster? It is a long hollow metallic tube pointing
from the ground to the sky. Nobody knows just why it works but it seems to be an effective way to forcing clouds to produce
On his website, Carlinsky warns that "cloudbusters are now in second
place as a cause of climate breakdown and atmospheric destabilization. Most of the deterioration in climate stability that
is conventionally being ascribed to greenhouse gases is, in fact, being caused by backyard hobbyists playing with cloudbusters."
Carlinsky rebuts the greenhouse gas and increased carbon dioxide theories.
He shows on his website how "the climate is changing but it is not getting warmer. It is also not getting colder. What it
is doing is get ting warmer and colder. It is getting wetter and drier. In short, it is getting more random. It is getting
more variable. It is getting more chaotic and fluctuating more widely. It is going to extremes. It is pulsating more rapidly
and with greater amplitude."
So if hobbyists tinkering with cloudbusters are the second major cause
of climate change, and Carlinsky believes the buildup of carbon dioxide has nothing to do with it, what does he think the
major cause of our wild weather might be? He says it is the radioactivity from the man-made bombs, power plants and all of
the other devices being used in hospitals and doctor’s offices.
Read his website to study Carlinsky’s theories. He offers an
interesting argument that should perhaps be looked at seriously.
