Owning the Weather: watch now on Cable VOD

Robert Greene's documentary film explores the world of weather modification and geoengineering in the United States. It will be screened on Sunday, December 13 during the COP15 conference as part of the events sponsored by the activist group Hopenhagen. Find out more at Owning the Weather and click on the Cable VOD button.

Note: About two-thirds of the way through the film, a point is made that the human population is increasing in hazardous weather regions, like coasts. Apparently to reinforce this observation, Daniel is given a few seconds to articulate the mistaken belief that the human population, unlike all others, grows no matter what. But instead of being articulated as a mistaken belief, Daniel's quote is edited in such a way that he appears to be stating the belief as a fact. When this was brought to the attention of the director, Robert Greene, he agreed that Daniel's quote was both misleading and irrelevant. Although there is no way the film can be corrected in its current form on Video-On-Demand channels like Amazon, the quote will be omitted in later disk incarnations such as will be available at Netflix. This minor glitch did not alter Daniel's overall approval of the film as a thorough and balanced examination of the weather-control controversy.
