Impact of Weather Change Technologies on Global Security

Impact of Weather Change Technologies on Global Security AbstractThe article is devoted to assessing the potential impact of the use of technologies for influencing the weather on global security. It is shown that technologies for influencing the weather, which began to be developed at the end of the 19th century, are now actively studied and applied in developed countries of the world in most cases for precipitation management. Examples of the use of such systems by the USA, China, Russia, and the United Arab Emirates are given. According to the authors, the existing methods of influencing the weather for both peaceful and potentially military purposes, and their consequences, are not well studied in the long term. Long-term use of technologies for influencing the weather can have serious negative consequences for security at the local and global level, not only for the country that uses them, but also for neighboring countries and their population. One of the ways to regulate the situation is the creation of a special international monitoring service, which will be responsible for coordinating the use of weather management technologies by states. To achieve the goals set in the article, the authors applied an interdisciplinary method of discourse analysis, since it is the most productive for studying the consequences of using technologies for influencing the weather in the modern geopolitical situation. To determine the potential consequences of the use of technologies for influencing the weather, a systematic approach was used, which made it possible to present a holistic vision of the climatic challenges of influencing the weather in the modern geopolitical situation. The use of the comparative method and the forecasting method allowed to compare the potential of different countries that own and develop technologies for influencing the weather, as well as assess the possible consequences of using technologies for influencing the weather for peaceful and military purposes. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Land Forces Academy Review de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractThe article is devoted to assessing the potential impact of the use of technologies for influencing the weather on global security. It is shown that technologies for influencing the weather, which began to be developed at the end of the 19th century, are now actively studied and applied in developed countries of the world in most cases for precipitation management. Examples of the use of such systems by the USA, China, Russia, and the United Arab Emirates are given. According to the authors, the existing methods of influencing the weather for both peaceful and potentially military purposes, and their consequences, are not well studied in the long term. Long-term use of technologies for influencing the weather can have serious negative consequences for security at the local and global level, not only for the country that uses them, but also for neighboring countries and their population. One of the ways to regulate the situation is the creation of a special international monitoring service, which will be responsible for coordinating the use of weather management technologies by states. To achieve the goals set in the article, the authors applied an interdisciplinary method of discourse analysis, since it is the most productive for studying the consequences of using technologies for influencing the weather in the modern geopolitical situation. To determine the potential consequences of the use of technologies for influencing the weather, a systematic approach was used, which made it possible to present a holistic vision of the climatic challenges of influencing the weather in the modern geopolitical situation. The use of the comparative method and the forecasting method allowed to compare the potential of different countries that own and develop technologies for influencing the weather, as well as assess the possible consequences of using technologies for influencing the weather for peaceful and military purposes.
