I've wondered just why scientists haven't put more time into studying weather control -
Such as attempting to diffuse a hurricane, cyclone or tornado, before they really gather strength and destroy everything in their path.
Especially seeing that these weather patterns are getting stronger and more frequent every year, it seems.

Allegedly, that is what HAARP might be for.

Considerable effort and thought has been expended on weather control, but it's produced little in the way of reliable technology for affecting the weather. Cloud seeding is accepted as having an effect, but it requires a lot of effort and resources just to perform a single intervention.

It just seems to me quite strange that we can put a man on the Moon, can travel to Mars, visit Venus, but cannot control to some extent some of the dangerous weather patterns on our own planet.
It's too bad Nikola Tesla is not still with us, people on his level would surely have some answers.

From the 'historical proposals' link, a very interesting comment:

LBJ ON WEATHER CONTROL

"From outer space comes the power to control the earth's weather,
to cause drought and flood,
to change the tides and raise the levels of the sea,
to divert the Gulf Stream and
change temperate climates to frigid."
~ Senator(and later President) Lyndon Johnson
The cover story from the October, 2004 issue of Scientific American magazine described a NASA- funded study of how the power beams from solar satellites could be used to steer a hurricane away from coastal cities by warming the air on one side or the other of its path. It also explained how this beam could break up hurricanes, typhoons and even tornadoes by disrupting the delicate heat balance they need to survive."

And this is from 2004, one would think scientists would have followed up on something so important.
Or perhaps they did and nothing came of it.

I remember reading an article long ago about them setting off mortar shells to make it rain. Somewhere like Vietnam or Korea, I can't remember. This idea can't have just occurred out of thin air. EnolaGaia says that it takes too much effort which I am sure is true.

What if it also has a butterfly effect that causes hurricanes, typhoons and even tornadoes?

I was only wondering what happened to the research.
Nevermind.

It was popularly believed back in the 19th century that concussions from explosions or artillery fire could somehow stimulate rain. Shooting off fireworks or even cannons was a common part of (alleged) rainmakers' toolkits.

One major series of 1891 experiments in Texas is mentioned in the rainmaking thread:

Cloud seeding is a relatively limited method of weather control. All you are doing is adding small particles which can act as nucleation sites for raindrops. To make it rain using this method requires
a/ that there is a reasonably high level of water vapour already in the atmophere at that level
and
b/ that there are insufficient particles already present in the air in that location to act as condensation nuclei.

These two criteria are not often met in the same parcel of atmosphere, so cloud seeding rarely works. Some studies have failed to find any consistent effects, but sometimes they get lucky.

Here is an entire on-line book about weather modification, published by the US National Research Council.

The Committee concludes that there is still no convincing scientific proof of the efficacy of intentional weather modification efforts.
