Ether theory applied - re-greening an African nation, Eritrea.

The theory of ether has also been supported by re-greening areas with drought and desertification. Simple devices have been successfully used to modify weather systems to draw more rain to a region. Caution is necessary because overuse of the technique can also cause storms and it does draw the moisture away from neighboring regions.

A volunteer group with scientists from several nations successfully used the weather modification techniques in the African nation of Eritrea. The nation had been experiencing drought conditions for many years and rain was increased several years in a row during the team's mitigation work. The team had to end the project a couple years early due to an increase in war activity in the region.

The technique and equipment can be built and used fairly easily. A bundle of very long metal pipes need to be assembled and placed in a body of water such as a river or lake and then is pointed towards or away from a region to encourage flow of the weather system overhead. Most success with changing weather patterns was found to require use of the apparatus in a series of locations over the course of a few days or weeks, or to have several of the pipe devices used in consecutive order across a region - gradually drawing weather patterns in the desired direction to shift the wind and bring in more moisture from whichever direction there wasn't drought conditions.

With the increasing risk of drought and desertification a simple technique that primarily requires long metal pipes and consistent access to weather report updates could save many lives. The technique has been used successfully to increase rain in the U.S. and other areas prior to the multi-year volunteer project that helped return rain to drought stricken Eritrea in the late 1990s.

Or the book: Wilhelm Reich and the Healing of Atmospheres: Modern Techniques for the Abatement of Desertification, by Roberto Maglione, MS, Translated from Italian, with a foreword by James DeMeo, PhD. (

Choosing re-greening over desertification seems like an easy choice to make.
