Weather Modification is real and my proof is as follows. The question is weather techniques such as seed clouding has any damaging effect on the environment and humans. Many believe that weather modification is used in sinister ways. Whether this is true or not I do not know. I do know that most people do not know that many states in the US and other countries allow weather modifications. Weather modifications usually come in the form of cloud seeding, spraying silver iodide near clouds by airplane to create rain. In the US most states allow companies to use weather modification as long as they get a permit.
NOTICE OF INTENTION WEATHER MODIFICATION PROGRAM THE SANTA BARBARA COUNTY WATER AGENCY HEREBY GIVES NOTICE OF INTENTION TO CONDUCT A WEATHER MODIFICATION PROGRAM NATURE AND PURPOSE: The purpose of the project is to increase rainfall to help alleviate deficiencies of water supplies in Santa Barbara County. Clouds would be seeded by the dispersal of Silver Iodide (AgI). Two possible modes of seeding, air based and ground based, would be used. LOCATION OF PURPOSE: Project operations could be conducted during the period between November 15 and April 15, for each year, 2011-2012 through 2015-2016. Airborne seeding operations would utilize air space over Santa Barbara County, portions of San Luis Obispo County as well as the Pacific Ocean immediately west of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties. Ground based seeding operations would be conducted from the Santa Ynez Mountains, the Casmalia Hills and the San Rafael Mountains. The target areas for seeding operations are the watersheds behind Cachuma and Gibraltar reservoirs on the Santa Ynez River as well as Twitchell reservoir on the Cuyama River. LICENSEE: The project would be operated and supervised by a licensed weather modification consultant.
“Licensed weather modification consultant” Hmmmm…..obviously this has been being developed for awhile…… Not only is the technology available but their actually is a program to license some one in weather modification. They will be spraying in the as the Pacific Ocean also? Do we even known what spraying Silver Iodide into the air and ocean will do? I guess if it helps us have more rain huh?
Proof In TX
From the TDLR Texas Department of Legislation and Regulation “Currently, cloud-seeding projects designed to increase rainfall from convective cloud towers are conducted in nearly 31 million acres of Texas (or almost one-fifth of the state’s land area). In administering the Texas Weather Modification Act (enacted by the Texas Legislature in 1967), TDLR’s weather modification program issues licenses and permits for these projects, many of which have been in existence since 2000. The projects use specialized aircraft and sophisticated weather radar systems, operated by skilled meteorologists, at sites near Amarillo, Plains, Pecos, San Angelo, and Pleasanton. “

MN Legislation first enacted in 1977 view it in full here. Below are so excerpts from the law.
The legislature finds that it is necessary for the state to regulate weather modification to protect its citizens, but nothing in sections 42.01 to 42.14 shall be construed to encourage or promote weather modification.
42.03 Sovereign right claimed by state.
It is declared that the state of Minnesota claims its sovereign right to use for the best interest of its residents the moisture contained in the clouds and atmosphere within its sovereign state boundaries.
Subdivision 1. No person shall engage in weather modification without a license issued by the commissioner. Applications for weather modification licenses shall be on forms prescribed and furnished by the commissioner. The applicant shall pay a fee of $100. The license shall be valid for one year. The commissioner may waive the license fee in situations the commissioner deems appropriate.
Subd. 2. The commissioner shall issue licenses only to applicants who demonstrate good character, adequate education and sufficient competence in the field of meteorology and cloud physics to engage in weather modification. At a minimum, each applicant shall meet at least one of the following:
(1) demonstrate at least eight years of experience at the professional level in weather modification field research or operations, at least three of these years as a professional director; or
(2) has obtained a baccalaureate degree in engineering, mathematics, or the physical sciences plus three years experience in weather modification field research or operations; or
(3) has obtained a baccalaureate degree in meteorology, or a degree in engineering or the physical sciences which includes, or is in addition to, the equivalent of at least 25 semester hours of meteorological course work and two years practical experience in weather modification operations or research.
If the applicant is an organization, the competence must be demonstrated by the individuals who are to supervise and conduct the weather modification.
Subd. 3. The commissioner may renew a license annually if the applicant has the qualifications necessary for issuance of an original license and pays a fee of $100.
Subd. 4. Repealed, 1996 c 310 s 1

Subdivision 1. No person shall conduct an operation without a permit issued by the commissioner. Applications for permits shall be on forms prescribed and furnished by the commissioner. Permits shall be issued only to applicants who hold a valid weather modification license, pay a fee of $100 and furnish proof of financial responsibility pursuant to subdivision 2. Prior to conducting an operation, the permittee shall publish notice of the operation as the commissioner shall require and shall give written notice to the county boards of the counties over which the operation is to be conducted and counties contiguous thereto. The permit shall be valid for one year or until the operation terminates, whichever first occurs.
Subd. 2. The applicant shall demonstrate to the satisfaction of the commissioner the ability to respond to damages for liability which might reasonably result from the operation for which the permit is sought.
Subd. 3. Repealed, 1996 c 310 s 1
Subd. 4. To the extent the commissioner deems necessary, emergency weather modification operations for the purpose of controlling fire, frost, sleet, hail, fog, or wind shall be exempt from the permit requirements.
Subd. 5. The commissioner may renew a permit annually if the applicant has the qualifications necessary for issuance of an original permit and pays a fee of $100.
Subd. 6. No permit shall be issued to use a cloud seeding apparatus which emits cloud seeding material into the air when located on or in contact with the ground.
Subd. 7. Before a permit is issued, the commissioner may hold an informal hearing on the permit, at a location within the same geographic area as the proposed operation will be conducted.
Subd. 8. No more than one weather modification permit shall be issued for a given geographic area.
Subd. 9. The applicant must submit a complete operational plan for each proposed project prepared by the licensee who shall conduct the operation, which shall include, but not be limited to:
(a) a specific statement of the nature and objectives of the intended operation,
(b) a map of the proposed operating area which specifies the primary target area and shows the area reasonably expected to be affected and a rain gauge system for both seeded and downwind areas,
(c) an estimate of the amount of cloud seeding material expected to be placed in the clouds,
(d) a statement of the types of clouds to be seeded and identification of a procedure for random selection of at least a portion of the clouds to be seeded during the operation,
(e) the name and address of the licensee,
(f) the person or organization on whose behalf it is to be conducted,
(g) a statement showing any expected effect upon the environment and results of weather modification operations, and methods of determining and properly evaluating that operation, and any other detailed information as may be required to describe the operation and its proposed method of evaluation.
