The Science of Superstorms: Playing God with the Weather (2007)
The Science Of Superstorms highlights some of the futuristic weather modification research that Superstorm is based upon. This ranges from cloud seeding, currently the only proven form of weather control, to distant perturbation, the brain child of the world's foremost hurricane expert, Professor Kerry Emmanuel at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). In addition to looking at the future, The Science Of Superstorms explores how weather modification has been used in the past: from Project Stormfury, the first attempt to divert hurricanes over half-a-century ago, to the use of weather seeding during the Vietnam War, to the experiments being conducted by governments around the world today. The second of three films exploring the science behind weather modification. This film highlights the benefits and appalling consequences of trying to control the weather; from its humanitarian roots to its dark history of military involvement.
