Venezuela turns to cloud-seeding to battle drought

"We're bombarding clouds," Chavez said during a televised speech. "We have some planes there, and some equipment that Fidel and Raul sent us."

Chavez is trying to squeeze more rain from the clouds as his country heads into its dry season amid a drought that has put reservoirs at their lowest levels in decades. The lack of water behind hydroelectric dams that supply most of Venezuela's electricity is threatening to worsen blackouts that have already become an emerging political liability.

It looks like hidden hand (Was that his name?) was right. Droughts over a long period of time and then rain all the sudden do cause earthquakes. Look at the amount of 5.0 Earthquakes and up we have had lately, they have raised.

It looks like more and more countries are working on controlling the weather.

Bad bad bad bad bad. Planned usage of cloud seeding technology can be used with minimal repercussions, but it requires extensive forecasting to use it in a safe and efficient manner.

Venezuela is just going to throw this out there like some sort of miracle charm, and end up making their situation worse, far worse, in the long run.
