Don't forget cloud seeding



Why, as California is running out of water, have we not demanded that a cloud-seeding regimen be implemented, publicly or privately?! It has been known since Project Storm Fury in the 1960s that clouds can be manipulated to either grow or dissipate by using small amounts of strategically placed silver iodide in timed intervals. This would cost far less than building desalinization plants and pipelines to disburse the water.

Cloud seeding has been used to extend the monsoon season in Vietnam and used to lessen a hurricane’s strength. Are we going to run out of water without at least trying this option?
