I do not think that countries in the UN would deny such a proposal, if it was ever put on the table. The effort to seed clouds over specific areas of
interest over Africa could be international.
I do not think the weather repercussions would be serious. In order to affect the climate globally in any serious way, the artificial clouds would
have to span an enormous area, something not acheivable with current means.
I agree that the cloud seeding technology is experimental, but I think it is neccessary to try. Neccessity is the mother of invention.
The air over Somalia is not completely dry, is it? especially in high altitude. I think that the moisture in high altitude, when combined with water
and chemicals spreading, would create clouds.
Finally, i do not think that the African people would ever dhange their habits. It seems to me that, since they essentially live in the same way,
unaltered, for centuries, that they perhaps never evolve out of their current ways. They just prefer to live in this way. I would much rather help
them in practical ways like cloud seeding than trying to modernize them, because i think trying to alter their ways would simply not work.
Please, do not get me wrong. It would be ideal for them to rise out of their current way of living; to have birth control, modern education, modern
agriculture, water infrastructure, plumping, electricity, etc. I just do not think that it will happen though. It seems to me there are too set in
