Expert warns of “weaponized weather” being used against US power grids
By Ramon Tomey // Sep 24, 2021

A national security expert warns of countries using "weaponized weather" to cripple the U.S.'s electricity grids. Peter Pry says rogue nations could take advantage of extreme weather to conduct attacks without firing a single shot. He adds that people are less likely to consider extreme weather as an act of an enemy country than electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attacks.


In a piece for All News Pipeline, Pry says enemies using severe weather to wage a "blackout war" can combine it with cyber-attacks, EMP attacks and sabotage. He adds that power outages caused by heavy storms have a ripple effect on key infrastructures such as communications, food and water supply, transportation and emergency medical services.

"Unlike 'blackout warfare,' hurricanes and other storms are familiar to the public and are understood to be acts of nature, not the destructive agents of a foreign enemy. Public perceptions of and reactions to mass destruction differ markedly when the agent of destruction is a familiar natural event or accident, versus destruction by unfamiliar means inflicted by malignant actors," the expert elaborates.

Pry ultimately warns that the responsibility of keeping the electric grids safe is on the hands of electric utilities. "If the largest electric utilities in the U.S. cannot be trusted completely to perform such basic and simple public safety precautions [such] as vegetation management and powerline protection from high winds and ice storms, clearly they are incompetent to protect the grid from more complex and much bigger threats … that could kill millions," he notes.

China actively dabbling in weather control

Of the many nations that seek to undermine the U.S., China is the most active in weaponizing the weather. Writing for India Sentinels, author Sapna Singh claims that China may be using weather modification systems in the Tibet region to disrupt weather patterns. She points out the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) installing more than 500 silver iodide chambers. These chambers expel silver iodide particles that the monsoon wind will deliver to clouds, causing additional rain and snowfall.

While the silver iodide chambers seek to increase rainfall in the region by up to 10 billion cubic meters a year, their effects may severely impact India. Singh names the union territory of Ladakh and the northern states of Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh, alongside those that might be affected by floods. She cites flooding in the Arunachal Pradesh and Assam states as a result of "Chinese interference" in Tibet's natural water system.

According to Singh, China has already deployed these burners on mountain slopes in Tibet and the Xinjiang region above it. "India, therefore, can't afford to ignore [China's] weather modification activities in the Tibetan plateau. If it can't stop Beijing, it has to act quickly to develop its own technology to counter or weaken China's rapidly developing [weather modification] capabilities," she warns.

Later, China's State Council issues a circular detailing "the quality deployment of weather modification." The document sets goals for the country in the field of weather control. It states that China "will have a developed weather modification system by 2025." The circular adds that China's weather modification capability ought to be at "a worldwide advanced level in terms of operation, technologies and services" by 2035.

Pry has earlier warned of possible attacks to the power grid

During the Sept. 14 episode of "Connecting the Dots" with Dan Happel on, Pry warned of the dangers that come with an attack on the U.S.'s electric grid. He adds that if rogue parties target just the Eastern Interconnection – one of three grids in the mainland U.S. – it will spell doom for the entire country. According to Pry, three-fourths of the electricity used nationwide comes from the eastern grid and most of the population lives off the power it produces.

The expert says: "Even a crude, first-generation atomic bomb … will generate an EMP. That would be enough to … collapse the eastern electric grid of the U.S. [if dropped from an altitude of] 30 kilometers." When dropped from that height, the resulting area of effect will be 600 kilometers wide. Higher altitudes result in a larger area being damaged, Pry continues.

He dubs EMP weapons as "anti-technology weapons" that can "subtract in the equation of our modern civilization." Same as in his, Pry argues that many vital infrastructures and such as telecommunication and transportation immediately fall after an EMP attack on the country's electric grid.
