Some amusing reading I found this a.m.
Starting in the late 1960's, U.S. and Soviet scientists began a series of joint efforts to warm up the Arctic (documented in Lowell Ponte's 1976 book, THE COOLING). At the 1974 Vladivostok Summit, U.S. and Soviet leaders concluded a secret agreement designed to promote global warming. On July 4, 1976, the Soviet Woodpecker ELF system began weather engineering operations. By the late 1970's, the United States joined in by transmitting its own weather modifying ELF signals.To improve joint electromagnetic weather control actions, the U.S. has just brought a number of Russian scientists to work at the top secret Lawrence Livermore high tech weapons laboratory. The real purpose of this new joint Russian / U.S. project is being kept secret from the American people. It is officially disguised as "environmental cleanup research."
