The essence of arrogance 

Words fail me in trying to discuss this article, whose title says it all: US Military Wants to Own the Weather.

Oof. What arrogance to think we could control nature. Even if this ridiculous endeavor has some success, who controls it? What are the chances that the technology would not be used for material and financial gain by those who control it?

Yeah, that wouldn't turn out poorly. The control of nuclear weapons is proving hard enough. Why not try to add another catastrophic weapon to the world?
