The problem with flooding, as I’ve heard it said, is you can’t build a dike high enough for any possible flood. That’s why there’s the waffle plan. But how about controlling the weather so there’s less snow to melt and cause flooding?
I was perusing this blog and ran across and possible weather control scheme for the near future, which involves using solar-powered heat rays to steer hurricanes. No doubt it can be used to cause a lot of other meteorological phenomenon.
Apparently, we as a country are very much interested in messing around with the weather, but haven’t gotten really organized about it yet. China, on the other hand, is interested and organized. You kind of have to question the idea of making it sunny so some political big wig gets blue skies, but preventing natural disaster? Hmmm.
