Man dry ice can be used instead of silver iodide. It's just as effective.

This is bad weather can be used as weapon !

This technology can help put out forest fires in California. It will save millions of dollars and lots of homes and lives.

"This technology can help put out forest fires in California." *How?*

So maybe it's Not GMO's causing the RISE in Cancer "Of ALL types" Maybe it's Chemtrails

There is no rise in cancer.

Or....we could plant more forests and protect those that remain. Trees produce very specific molecules and release them to the atmosphere. Those compounds create rain. Here is an explanation based on the Amazon basin, but this process is not limited to the Amazon basin, or even the tropics. It's how the system was designed by Nature. https://goo.gl/MP24FP And of course the ecological, economic and spiritual values of a living, breathing forest deliver far more than "just" rain. The tech exists, has done so for millions of years, and what we need to do is work on repairing the basic water cycles. One group I've found working on that is www.rainforclimate.com. Pretty awesome.

What is rarely heard once the word "Inert" is found acceptable is , exactly how this product burns once accumulation and exposure to extreme heat and wind (i.e wild fire) oops!
Simisani Moyo (4 months ago)
This is not new technology. Seeding eventually leads o drought and devastation of water sources , putting silver and other chemicals into clouds cannot be the answer to this problem. And to think that you can make Mother Nature more efficient is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Mother Nature will kick your ass right out of existence and the planet will continue to thrive.

If California is scarce on water then why does every homeowner have a pool

make it rain 1 place and you stop it from raining another place. if you mess with the weather you might just make it worse. say if the rain that usualy make a place extremely good for farming sudently stoped coming there. so now that another place got the rain and are now capable of getting good farm land. then sudently wherethe rain was headed dont get the rain and start getting dryer and stop being good farmland. so if you give rain to someone you take it form someone else.

imagine if you can make it rain and rain and rain near the forest fires? I know you need the clouds to begin with but maybe more discoveries can change that?

Sounds like a high potential to take additional water out of a system in one concentrated spot, resulting in a reduction of water in another area that the system was heading. Ya good for extremely water intense operations that have high value, like power generation. But could be horrible for less concentrated and valuable businesses, such as food production/farming. Also spraying at those altitudes could have huge implications to a vast area and the people in those areas from any adverse affects. Not a fan of this at all. Maybe to help fight forest fires?....

They should make the opposite. Cloud wringing. Stop clouds from raining so that there will be no floods over flood prone cities. Spread the rain thin

I think this might disturb the whole watercycle if massively used, since it doesnot let the cloud reach its intended place by nature.

master wayne (6 months ago)
The guy said assisting the mother nature to make the rain happen. Why not to think of the bigger issue why its not happening because we are destroying the mother nature by continuous use of non renewable sources of energy when we have other alternatives , we are disturbing the mother nature that can self adjust itself with time ( obviously price have to be paid in terms of other natural calamity that it brings). I doubt seriously that they are assisting the mother nature....

Shunned by scientists because silver-iodide isn't exactly non-toxic u know! U don't mess with the weather considering how we don't understand it fully so we won't know how it will effect weather systems. secondly who gets all the water dropped on them and who decides? And last of all, why pump even more chemicals harmful to health into our air?

From what I see, anyone who believe in chem trails, has no proof, just speculation. Which as convincing it is, seems to do nothing except cause arguments, for some reason anyone who doesn’t believe in conspiracies and what not seems to only cause arguments and act aggressive to anyone who who thinks outside the box.

So making clouds rain (or increasing rain) in one area can deny other areas rain they would otherwise have gotten. Uhh, yeah I don't know about this. This + imagination + greed = not a good feeling. >>edit added>> Maybe we should solve greed a bit more *before* we play weather god, hmm?

Silver iodide is highly toxic as well as oderless and tasteless and has antiseptic properties. It is the opposite of 'inert'. This is bad stuff that I don't want in my water but anyone is free to spray all over everyone.

How is it ethical to force rain where you want? Where the rain would have fallen, will no longer get that needed H2O. And now the area around will be ok, but surrounding areas will be devastated. This is a greedy tech if you asked me.
Raymundo M (6 months ago)
Thats dumb, if you cloud seed in California lets say the winter, that means less moisture later on, you are not fixing the drought youre making it worse, its not creating water out of nothing, its taking water that would be somewhere else and stealing it, this is not the solution

This should be illegal as the chemical used is silver iodide. I would not lick that snow on top of that hill nor want to eat the food grown there. " Under the guidelines of the Clean Water Act by the EPA, silver iodide is considered a hazardous substance, a priority pollutant, and as a toxic pollutant.(10) Some industries have learned this all too well."
