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?
Violent Grey (7 days ago)
spraying more stuff in the air huh?

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

LMFAO you dummies are just figuring this out. I'm afraid DARPA is way tf ahead of you. Chem trails with Trimethyl Aluminium. There's already lasers that shoot in the sky as well. Hahaha the doomsdayers are way way ahead of you by years. #AlexJones #Infowars

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

They aren't at all. Considering what people believe chemtrails to be
master wayne (28 days 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?

Thought weather control tech was illegal. Wasnt it's research banned so it doesn't become a tactic in war? Send a tornado to ravage the enemy or bleed them dry literally...
Life is Sour (24 days ago)
We dont know how to make tornados lol the worst we can do is monsoons in monsoons active areas and we have before during conflict. That's why these programs are funded through the government now, to make sure they dont use them unethically. If you fear the government then you probably think its evil already but not so much

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?

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.
ODI Idk (1 month 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
Flowerpot (8 days ago)
It's not really stealing, I mean it's water in the clouds. It's been in circulation longer than you have, and you can't exist without it, so by that logic, it owns you. This is to control when it rains, it's true that cloud will rain sooner rather than later, but that's the purpose. When you're in a drought, you need water now, not a few weeks down the road when it's cloudy again and might rain.

"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" *Holy fuck these people are stupid!*
Sahil Pethe (18 days ago)
Lol clouds move at few tens of feet per second every day. And air constantly gets shifted because of high and low pressure areas. When we are talking about gaps as big as seasons, it does not change anything. I would argue that more moisture would be generated in the air because there's a thing called saturation level in the atmosphere and if the saturation level drops below or goes above the average in that region, nature corrects it. Ultimately, the water vapor comes from the evaporation of the sea and goes eventually inwards so it will never get exhausted given a lot of time like a few months.

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."

Normalizing technologic atmospheric modification. Remember everything is connected. Earth, air, oceans and space are all touching each other interacting 100% of the time. All life is tuned over billions of years interacting with this mix of chemistry and energy in a constant feedback loop. Playing chemistry with our atmosphere...what could go wrong?
