The National Weather Service prepared to deal with an influx of conspiracy theories about weather modification as a result of the new movie Geostorm, in which a network of satellites designed to control the global climate starts to attack Earth, but no one has bothered to ask about government weather control. Ideally, the film would have questioned the dangers of technological climate interventions (geoengineering) and edify the public on a nuanced scientific topic. Arguably, geoengineering is the new face of weather control, but it's a technology in its infancy. Geoengineering methods seek to fight climate change by launching reflective aerosol particles into the atmosphere, sending heat back to space. Millions of dollars have been raised to conduct geoengineering experiments, but that's about the extent of its influence. NOAA actually did research hurricane modification from 1962 to 1983 in what the agency called "Project STORMFURY." Researchers would release dry ice into the eye of a storm in hopes of disrupting the storm and weakening it.
