The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) will run the 21-month project, which is the first NAS geoengineering study financially supported by an intelligence agency. The total cost of the project is $630,000, which NAS is splitting with the CIA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and NASA, according to Mother Jones.
One of the purposed geoengineering studies will look into solar radiation management, which is putting chemicals in the stratosphere to reflect incoming sunlight away from the earth.
David Keith, a Harvard researcher, says weather modification is fundamentally doable, cheap and could reduce climate change, but with risks.
Weather modification isn’t new. The US Military seeded clouds with silver iodide to extend the monsoon season over Laos during the Vietnam War. The seeding ran from March 20, 1967 until July 5, 1972.
