Owning the Weather (2009)

Available worldwide

We've always wanted to control the weather. Now we may have to. Owning The Weather goes deep inside the story of weather modification, including geoengineering schemes to fight global warming.

The weather might be the most important thing to humankind. It affects our moods, what clothes we wear, what foods we eat and how we live. Despite centuries of scientific victories that have enabled us to exert some control and “air condition” the elements out of our lives, we have not yet escaped the weather.

happy to see how awake fearless and powerful the gaia community is. [middle finger up] to the MIC

How and why would you ever have this in what supposed to an somewhat enlightened community? Chemtrails are real and their poisoning our soil, water and air. Weather modifications means that they're spraying the air with aluminium that eventually we either breathe in, drink or eat. Aluminium gets stored in the brain and eventually lead to dementia or Alzheimers. Ultimately it f**** up your nervous system.

The idea that man should/could play god is as ridiculous as the idea of GMO's. For those that are aware the California drought is man made through chemtrails or geo engineering.

Please don't spread propaganda like this. This os one of the most important issues of our time. We need to leave the weather alone. We need to leave the earth alone. Earth and the weather will modify itself into harmony if we stop spraying poison in the skies.

Thank you for writing! This documentary was not produced by Gaia; however, we have covered the topic of chemtrails in multiple interviews.

All the best,

I kept waiting for the other side of the story. Silly me! I thought I was on an alternative site. Netflix (sic) has more cutting edge info than this. Can you do better? Way, way, better????

Interesting, but clearly a pro Geoengineering propaganda film!! You only have to read the description of the film to understand that. It's good to see both sides of every issue but I think most viewers on Gaia are discerning enough to see through the thin pro Geoengineering arguments and lack of examination of the many negatives associated with spraying the planet and inhabitants with metals and neurotoxins!! I will note that there is a sprinkling of anti Geoengineering protesters and opponents but they are the minority in the film.

I would not vote to let this slow bs come into Gaia...

This film is a clever propaganda piece for geo-engineering. It attempts to "educate" the viewer on the "benefits" and "Necessity" of geo-engineering.

This video is designed to steer your opinion to favor weather control. It pretends to be objective, and has arguments on both sides, but leaves you feeling like maybe its ok what they are doing. There is more discussion FOR it than against it, so it fails to be an objective argument.

It seems this film is setting up an explanation for those beginning to wake up to the possibility of chemtrails, to look away, as it is all "Made sense of" and justified by the scientists, and officials interviewed in this film. Of course they use logic like, "Imagine if we could have steered Hurricane Katrina, we could have saved everyone." Which is another lie for another discussion… (HAARP)

At one point stating that rain is basically water moisture that attaches to dust particles, condenses and falls as rain, so now all they are doing is making fake dust to spray into clouds to do the same thing, but they fail to mention that they are spraying nano-aluminum, which is almost as toxic as Mercury, (Among other chemical elements they are spraying) painting the picture that what they are doing in our skies is just like sprinkling dust from the desert, or it is just like doing what a volcano does, spraying particulate into the atmosphere, or some other natural process.

I found it ironic that they mention Geo-engineering several times while showing footage of a chemtrail, but of course never once mention the real chemtrails, only show small 2 seater, single propeller aircraft spraying tiny amounts, nothing like what we are seeing in our skies today.

Another argument is to say that if we want to keep growing (Unsustainably) in the way we have with cities like Las Vegas, then weather modification is necessary. Of course no mention of NOT growing unsustainably, and maybe it would be a good idea to not build a massive metropolis in the middle of the desert, with surrounding suburbs and infrastructure where there is no natural water to support it.

One fellow begins to say that the bible even allows us to "Use our brains" to modify the weather. (47:40)

Films like this I realize that common sense is not so common these days.

Gaia lately has been selecting so many lop-sided propaganda type films that I'm beginning to wonder if there is a mole on the payroll........

rickejones, posted on March 28, 2016

Indeed...I am thinking the NSA has infiltrated Gaia.

summersol, posted on March 24, 2016

One sided viewpoint. Didn't begin to cover the real issues.

ghostbuffalo, posted on March 23, 2016

Why aren't we using geothermal energy? A man in Nebraska built a greenhouse and placed pipes 8 feet below ground level and grew oranges an other fruits and vegetables year round!!!!!

rickejones, posted on March 28, 2016

Now that would be the documentary I would really like to see.

dreamdust38, posted on March 25, 2016

Where did you see that and is there a documentary on that. This we need especially if things go haywire which it looks like they are headed. People will need this to grow food . Food will be more valuable than gold. They rape the Earth for this gold and it is the Earth that is more valuable. We will need these systems soon. Water and land will be most important and growing food in greenhouses might be a good idea as some of this stuff can ruin gardens.

i was wondering why chemtrails weren't mentioned in this documentary. Do chemtrails affect the weather?

The metals in the sky are just that until they are activated by ElectroMagnetic waves. The EM energy is what can cause density (pressure) changes and spins and storm systems. The metal is a great carrier for EM energy. I first started picturing this like the metal as a sponge and the EM energy from installations like HAARP and such as the water. The "sponge soaks up the water " in a way. We often see ripple effects in the sky , This is a side effect of ionspheric heaters being run. Standford(.edu) and haarp are working hand in hand with the ionspheric heater. Note those ripples in the sky on days where the weather spikes warm. There is a .edu webpage Stanford also has set up about the haarp ionospheric heater although they don't mention the ripples. A little known fact about magnetism is that magnetic energy has a spin to it. This is what the Coriolis effect is really on the Earth magnet, etc. This function of magnetism is being leveraged secretly in this program.

I haven't watched this yet and went to the comments.... They didn't mention chemtrails??? They are like one the most important factors in weather modification.

chiangmaideli, posted on March 25, 2016

yes they not mention the whole cover up and lying parts pretty much, well not going to watch it to the end

billwolford, posted on March 28, 2016

Yes, I got annoyed about a quarter of the way through where they just interviewed people on completely obvious opinions on weather and what they would do if they controlled it. Not sure why this made it on gaia TV.
