Managing our Galactic Environment, Part 1. LPAC Science Team members Benjamin Deniston, Liona Fan-Chiang and Megan Beets explore the cosmic implications of managing the Earth's water cycle.

Atmospheric ionization systems have been successfully used to increase precipitation, and affect associated weather processes. This has been done in multiple locations around the world, cumulatively for three decades. With a further development of these technologies the droughts in California and other locations around the world could be overcome in a completely new way: by the management of the water resources of the sky!

Ben Deniston interviews Space Physicist Sergei Pulinets who discusses the success of his theoretical and experimental work on atmospheric ionization worldwide.

Professor Pulinets is a space physicist who has developed a specialty in the science of the precursors manifested prior to earthquakes. This has led him to develop an understanding of the effects associated with increasing and decreasing atmospheric ionization, including the influence on weather. Based on this background Professor Pulinets was included in a scientific committee tasked to assess the capabilities of weather control systems in Mexico which utilized electrically induced atmospheric ionization to increase precipitation. From this investigation and further development of the theories involved, Professor Pulinets has been promoting the development of this technology. See also, "Weather control? Yes, it is really possible!" a March 25, 2009 article by Professor Sergey Pulinets, published in Russia Beyond the Headlines.

New Perspectives on the Western Water Crisis

The crisis of the western half of the US is neither new nor unpredictable. Indeed, it was forecasted by many. Many proposals have been on the books, yet we continue to careen further into dire straits. Benjamin Deniston outlines a clear path out of this crisis that must be adopted by any serious presidential candidate. Read. Distribute. Act. READ MORE


Water for the Future

This 8 minute video is a first in a series, presented by LPAC, which demonstrates that the water to solve California's drought crisis IS there, it just needs to be developed. Here we focus on a brief overview of the three, immediately possible means of increasing California's fresh water supply. See our full Global Water Cycle Playlist here.

LaRouche identified the critical potential for nuclear fission power systems to address the resource needs of much of the developing world, including providing fresh water through desalination. “ With the growing importance of the “clean water” problem, and with the opportunity to replicate California’s Imperial Valley in many parts of the world, desalination and other water-purification exploiting waste heat will make nuplexes key in meeting agricultural and population clean-water requirements…”

This paper was written by LaRouche as a contribution to the “National Conference on Water from Alaska,” sponsored by LaRouche’s 1980’s National Democratic Policy Committee. In the paper LaRouche highlights the importance of the North American Water and Power Alliance (NAWAPA) program. The paper opens, “Next to a general thermonuclear war, the greatest single environmental danger to the American people over the coming two decades is the danger that whole regions of our nation will simply run out of usable freshwater supplies. This is an acute danger in a region within a hundred-mile radius of New York City. The greatest area of present danger lies west of the Mississippi…”

Through out the 1980’s LaRouche promoted the development of the NAWAPA project, and continued to support the development of major regional water projects around the world. These included projects in the Middle East (later led by LaRouche’s “Oasis Plan”), in Africa, in India, and other regions. As stated in the opening of one 1986 report by LaRouche’s associates, Great projects for infrastructure development and water supply, “There is not a famine or drought-stricken region of the world today where there do not exist blueprints for large-scale water diversion projects, entirely workable, that could transform these regions. In many cases, these plans have existed for decades. and involve technologies nor much more sophisticated than those that built the Erie Canal 150 years ago…”

In 2010, pre-dating the 2014 outbreak of drought in the Southwestern United States, LaRouche tasked his Basement scientific team to relaunch the NAWAPA project. This resulted in a series of written and video reports detailing an upgraded NAWAPA XXI proposal, interviews with experts in water management and engineering, and a nation-wide campaign for the construction of the NAWAPA XXI project. However, the alarming pace and depth of the 2014 drought has driven LaRouche to call for going beyond this NAWAPA XXI proposal, and look to more immediate global programs of water development.

"When we are inclined to take these wonders for granted, let us remember that only a generation or two ago all the great rivers of America, the Missouri, the Columbia, the Mississippi, the Tennessee, ran to the sea unharnessed and unchecked. Their power potential was wasted. Their economic benefits were sparse. And their flooding caused an appalling destruction of life and of property. Then the vision of Theodore Roosevelt was fulfilled by Franklin Roosevelt, and to demonstrate how important this is as a national issue, two distinguished American Presidents from New York State saw how essential it was to the Nation and New York State to develop the resources of the West. And as a result this Nation began to develop its rivers systematically, to conserve its soil and its water, and to channel the destructive force of these great rivers into light and peace. And today, as a result of this, the face of this Nation has been changed. Forests are growing where there was once dirt and waste. Now there is prosperity where our poorest citizens once lived. If there is one outstanding story among all this which indicates the kind of progress we can make working together, it’s the story of the REA, and of Sam Rayburn of Texas, and Franklin Roosevelt of New York, and George Norris of Nebraska."
