Artificially Creating Clouds

  1. Lately I have been getting into meteorology and things alike. I have heard of people controlling the weather. So, what are some methods of creating clouds? List as many methods as you can.

  3. Here’s one way weather can be modified. It doesn’t create clouds, because they are already there, but the precipitation is in form of rain, instead of hail.
  4. I recently had a conversation which ended abruptly when I was informed the US wanted to get to the moon first to control the weather. :uhh:

    On a brighter note, look up "cloud seeding". I don't know much about it, but I've heard it's been done.

    On a slightly unrelated note, I had a friend who was talking to some old guy one day. This guy stated, and I quote, "If they weren't shooting rockets up through the ozone, they wouldn't get them holes in it!".

    This technique for creating clouds seems to have made some progress in the Islamic Middle East.

    Respectfully submitted,
  8. I'm going to look into this, it appears like a crackpot site from the outset - in fact it screams it. I'll report back on my findings.

    EDIT: Scrap that, here is something right down the bottom of the page that worries me:
    This is non-sense. It's no different to putting a magnet on your gas meter.

    They are claiming "after installation of magnetic generators, desert turned into a blooming garden.", yet for this to work you have to install irrigation - of course it's going to turn into a successful garden if you install irrigation, clouds or not. Not to mention the fact they want you to spread propoganda.

    5 years with a good irrigation system will give you good agriculture, no need for this mumbo jumbo.

    EDIT 2: They also claim the system reduces water useage, but gives up to 60% more crops.
