Whether or not we should engineer the Weather

"Owning the Weather" is a documentary about geo-engineering by Robert Greene.  It's about whether or not we should engineer the weather and the different impacts that this has. And not only because we can, but also because actually we are already doing so.

"There are more than fifty active weather modification programs in the United States alone. Through the eyes of key individuals on the front lines of a crucial but largely unknown debate, the film introduces the cloud seeders struggling for mainstream recognition, the 'legitimate' scientists who doubt them, and the activists who decry any attempts to mess with Mother Nature."

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
