Correction: Hostile use of weather manipulation against other nations
has been banned under international law for quite some time.
It says nothing about your own country.
Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques
1. Each State Party to this Convention undertakes not to engage in
military or any other hostile use of environmental modification
having widespread, long-lasting or severe effects as the means of destruction, damage or injury to any other State
As used in article 1, the term "environmental modification techniques" refers to any technique for changing - through the deliberate manipulation
of natural processes
--the dynamics, composition or structure of the Earth, including its biota, lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere
of outer space."
1. The provisions of this Convention shall not hinder the use of environmental modification techniques
for peaceful purposes and shall be
without prejudice to the generally recognized principles and applicable rules of international law concerning such use
So in other words.
You can use it peacefully across the board but you can't use it with intent to harm other
