In a 1997 Q&A;, Clinton-era Secretary of Defense William Cohen warned that terrorists might someday engage in "an eco-type of terrorism," as he phrased it, "whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, [and] volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves."

I would love to see whatever "electromagnetic" weapons he was referring to—perhaps not unlike those found in one of these two games—and to wonder aloud what sort of test range such devices might require and what landscape architects might be able to do with such a place.
