No. What I said is that what we do on earth can have a subtle effect on the ionosphere and magnetosphere. (I'm excluding atmospheric pollution here and its effects on the troposphere/stratosphere.)

You are suggesting the ionosphere can affect the troposphere. I'm saying if that is possible, it would take colossally large amounts of power, so if anyone were to try it, there would be all sorts of tell-tail disruptive signs as I've outlined.
