All anyone needs to do is look up the weather modification act of Canada, we've had this stuff going on for a long time.
This is no conspiracy, it is real. I think the UN had banned any country who held a seat on the UN council, but conveniently neither Canada or the USA actually held a seat when it was enforced.
The following year, they called for international agreement to avoid the military use of environmental and geophysical modifications and, after exploring the possible uses, reached out to the former Soviet Union (USSR). In 1974 and 1975, U.S. President Richard Nixon and Soviet General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev held three sets of discussions on the issue. In 1975, the two nations began negotiating specific terms at the Conference of the Committee on Disarmament (CCD). Finalized in 1976, the agreed text was sent to the UN General Assembly for consideration during the fall session. On 10 December 1976, the resolution was approved with 96 to 8 votes, 30 abstaining. 
About the General Assembly
Functions and powers
The General Assembly (GA) is the main deliberative, policymaking and representative organ of the UN.
Each country has one vote. Some Member States in arrear of payment may be granted the right to vote.
“weather modification activity” includes any action designed or intended to produce, by physical or chemical means, changes in the composition or dynamics of the atmosphere for the purpose of increasing, decreasing or redistributing precipitation, decreasing or suppressing hail or lightning or dissipating fog or cloud.
During droughts water is scarce but is it possible to make it rain to provide water.
Experiments in cloud seeding suggest that it may be possible to artificially create rainfall.
Rainfall occurs when supercooled droplets of water – those that are still liquid but are at a temperature below the usual freezing point of zero centigrade – form ice crystals. Now too heavy to remain suspend in the air, these then fall, often melting on their way down to form rain.
Even in dry areas the air usually contains some water. This can be made to come together and form ice crystals by seeding the atmosphere with chemicals such as silver iodide or dry ice.
They work to promote rainfall by inducing nucleation – what little water is in the air condenses around the newly introduced particles and crystallises to form ice.
The ‘seeds’ can be delivered by plane or simply by spraying from the ground.
But does it work?
It’s hard to tell for sure. As is often the case with weather and climate, it’s impossible to carry out a controlled experiment – so, in areas of increased precipitation, we can’t know whether it would still have rained even if the clouds hadn’t been seeded.
Success has been claimed for trials in Australia, France, Spain and the US. In the United Arab Emirates, the technique is credited with the creation of 52 storms in the Abu Dhabi desert, while China boasts of having used the technology in reverse to keep the Beijing Olympic Games of 2008 dry.
Recent research, however, suggests that it’s not as effective as was previously believed.
