No More Cloud-Seeding!

Cloud-seeding is wasteful and unnecessary.

John Nordberg’s solution to drought and climate change doesn’t require clouds.


Gwynn Guilford (“China creates 55 billion tons of artificial rain a year — and it plans to quintuple that,” Quartz News, Oct. 22, 2013) wrote …

“China’s come a long way since 1958, when Russia brought cloud-seeding to the Middle Kingdom. It’s now the most trigger-happy cloud-seeder in the world. In 2011, China spent $150 million on a single regional artificial rain program; it’s unclear how much other local governments spend. The US, by comparison, spends around $15 million a year. It now creates 50 billion tonnes (55 billion tons) of artificial rain a year. That compares with an average of 36 billion tonnes a year (40 billion tons) from 1999 to 2006.”

According to the same source …

“With its horrendous air pollution and acute water shortage, China is a natural contender to be the world’s leading cloud-seeder. But another reason is that few countries share its enthusiasm for the technique. For one, its effectiveness has never been well established. Put simply, it’s hard to tell if those 55 billion tons of artificial rain would have fallen anyway.”


According to John Nordberg (Nov. 27, 2012) …

“Lately, it’s likely you’ve heard many alarming and scary environmental predictions. Well, you can simply forget them — all of them.

“Every one of those environmental predictions is now wrong.

“In essence, this new physics is very green. As a result of this new physics, scientists will be required to completely revise their environmental predictions.

“In essence, this new physics completely invalidates just about every bad environmental prediction that you’ve ever heard of.”
