There was that time when the United States military did a "cloud seeding" experiment during the Vietnam War, when it artificially made it rain over Vietnam and Laos to cause flooding. But other than that, the idea of weather manipulation is the stuff of spy thrillers.
Okay, sloppy journalism once again. I could care less about 'conspiracies', but this line is bull----. Does noone ever check their facts anymore? Ski areas have been using cloud seeding for quite a while now.
