like the power created by the chernobl power plant?
That's only a few Gigawatts - nowhere near enough! Even if it all went into the transmitters and they were 100 per cent efficient (and 70 per cent is about all you can get) and the gain of the antennas giving maybe a few tens of Gigawatts. Still chicken feed.

The sun gives something like 1000 watts per square meter of the earth's surface on average. Now scale that up using man-made energy to overcome its influence to modify the weather even on a smallish area. See what I mean...?
