Cloud Seeding 101

I'd been thinking lately about cloud seeding for some reason. Cloud seeding, for those of you in Arcata, is releasing silver iodide into clouds to increase the amount of rain they release. This Sacramento Bee article answered just about every question I had regarding the practice.

Contrary to my assumption that seeding actually makes a cloud formation rain, it only increases the amount of snow where it's already snowing- which I would think might turn to rain as it descends.

Is it cost effective? I guess so:

 "In a report this year, the California Department of Water Resources estimated these projects generate 400,000 acre-feet of additional water supply annually. That’s about equal to half the volume of Folsom Reservoir. They did so at an estimated cost of $2.27 per acre-foot, which is cheaper than almost any other water-supply option, including conservation projects."

I also wondered about the silver iodide being released. Is that harmful? Not according to the folks involved, but I'll remain a bit skeptical on that one.

Still no comments allowed in the Sacramento Bee. What's with that? Didn't really matter after reading this article as I had no questions or comments to make. Nicely done by the Bee.

The California State Legislators are so busy inventing and pass immoral laws that they had crowded out God out of their reality! It’s obvious they didn’t sent a representative to Israel for the feast of Sukkot ~ “Feast of Tabernacles”! If they had done that, we would have a guarantee of rain for the following 12 months. Now they have to wait until next year’s Sukkot to get that blessing of rain from the LORD!

Zechariah 14:16 -17
16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

Instead of cloud seeding (which won’t do any good anyway), they could ask us to pray for their rains! Yes, those godless-people, California State Legislation, MUST ASK, it’s not going to be done for them without them ASKING!!!

This is funny this stuff has been un classified since the 70's yet people still refuse to believe that its happening the government also claims that it can manipulate the course of hurricanes and tornadoes yet we still have droughts we still have national disasters from hurricanes and tornadoes why is this but Dubai is really the cutting edge of weather modification and manipulation and by the way for all the critics out there they don't call it cemtrails they call it geo-engineering Google that
