This class will present a theoretical basis for why human activities such as irrigation, wind farms, and urban heat islands could be expected to play a significant role in the evolution of our weather. The existence of chaos in the atmospheric system will be discussed, which ultimately provides the mechanism for small changes to the atmosphere to modify the weather days later and thousands of miles away. Early experimental results will be shared that describe the nature of inadvertent weather modification from wind farms and irrigation in the Midwest U.S.
