But far below, a fleet of fishing boats trawling the sea between Japan and the Soviet Union was drenched by a violent but short-lived downpour before the weather suddenly cleared. Nuclear tests and volcanic activity were later ruled out but scientists concluded that this was not a natural phenomenon. More than two decades later suspicion still exists that the stunned airline crew and fishermen in 1973 were witnessing a sinister Cold War experiment, in which water from the Sea of Japan was blown into the air to create clouds and rain.

The documents reveal that both the US, which led the field, and the Soviet Union had secret military programmes with the goal of controlling the world"s climate. "By the year 2025 the United States will own the weather, " one scientist is said to have boasted.
Since then, a United Nations treaty has been signed which bans environmental warfare, such as causing earthquakes, melting the polar ice caps and altering climate. But some experts believe that clandestine work to create the ultimate weapon of mass destruction continues.

"Edmond Residents sue companies for Earthquakes"
Edmond residents filed a lawsuit Monday against a dozen energy companies, claiming their saltwater disposal wells were in part to blame for earthquakes that hit central Oklahoma in recent weeks.
The lawsuit, filed in Oklahoma County District Court, said the companies acted negligently and their use of disposal wells constituted an "ultrahazardous activity." The nine homeowners said disposal wells operated by the companies "caused or contributed" to earthquakes.
Earthquakes of magnitudes 4.3 and 4.2 shook the Edmond area Dec. 29 and Jan. 1. No injuries were reported, although some residents and businesses reported items falling off shelves or walls. The quakes caused an hour-long power outage for several thousand residents when vibrations shook a substation, triggering a breaker.
