Nearly 2 years ago, the University of Miami spent roughly $45 million on an indoor laboratory with the ability to produce actual hurricanes, with up to category 5 level windspeeds, reaching over 157 miles per hour (252 kilometers per hour).
The lab is given the acronym “SUSTAIN”: short for SUrge STructure Atmosphere INteraction. It is composed of a 75 foot long, 30,000 gallon capacity acrylic water tank, equipped with a 1,700-horsepower fan and a 12-paddle wave generator. Together, the tools in the lab can create a wide range of weather conditions, waves, and other reactions alleged to be for the purpose of studying hurricanes.
However, the academic institutions in America, most of them work for the Military Industrial Complex. The science of weather warfare, or geoengineering was perfected at institutions like MIT, with defense contractors such as Raytheon and the MITRE corporation working in conjunction with academic institutions and the US government.
Understanding the relationship between academic institutions and the military, geoengineering researchers have had good reason to wonder if the recent hurricanes were engineered or altered with geoengineering technology.
According to the SUSTAIN lab director and oceanographer Brian Haus:
We can create the equivalent of a hurricane with winds over 200 miles-per-hour. That’s an off-the-charts Category 5.
That means the SUSTAIN lab can be configured to try and recreate past historical storms. Scientists allege this gives them the opportunity to measure wind and wave patterns for hurricanes that have long passed.
If the tools are really that accurate, it’s a huge testament to the precision of geoengineering technology.
According to Science Alert:
They can also monitor the differences between different categories of storm and ultimately advise governments and authorities on the best ways to tackle them, thanks to the data pulled from the lab.
There are various different uses for the specialized hardware inside the SUSTAIN lab: testing the resilience of model houses and buildings, for example, studying how sea spray affects the growing intensity of a storm (due to the transfer of heat from the water to the atmosphere as spray is generated) and also tracking the way carbon dioxide moves from the ocean to the air during a hurricane.
The University of Miami of course, is currently being struck with a gigantic hurricane.
While this particular effort to recreate hurricanes seems a lot more innocent than the activity of geoengineering such as David Keith, it is concerning, and indicative of how fully developed the science of geoengineering is.
