Pollution May Cause Droughts!

As it stands now, when you have clouds in the sky and you introduce micro particles into them, you can induce rain. This is called cloud seeding.

Cloud seeding, a form of weather modification, is the attempt to change the amount or type of precipitation that falls from clouds, by dispersing substances into the air that serve as cloud condensation or ice nuclei, which alter the microphysical processes within the cloud.

Cloud seeding works by forcing particles into the water that exists in clouds, and making the water more heavy. This causes the water to fall because of gravity.

I believe that the particles that are emitted from cars, trucks, and other places in the form of CO2 are accumulated in the sky as smog, and this acts like constant cloud seeding.

Because of the constant contaminants in the sky, this can make it harder and harder for clouds to exist at all. This then I believe will cause droughts! The more contaminants emitted into the air and haunting the skies over the years will almost absolutely make this problem worse and worse as time goes on and nothing is done to stop it.

Perhaps there's a possibility that these particles may drop with the rain.

Little water drop merges each other and becomes a big heavy one, then it falls.These particles takes effect and they would be wrapped by water and it falls with the rain.

However,we shall make some efforts to avoid droughts and do not force clouds to rain.

You bring up a very cool theory here.

Gonna look into this a bit.

The reason for droughts that I'm aware of is the deforestation of the rain forests. That messes up the weather patters to a degree that modern science still doesn't understand.

Less trees= less rain in the area.

It might be interesting for you to look at the industrial revolution and rainfall patterns, as well as drought history from that point after the start of the industrial revolution. The question you raise is valid, but most science is pointing to a rise in temperature, climate change(and thus a change from regular rainfalls to incidences of heavy downpours leading to floods and therefore drought in one area and major flooding within another, both in the same country or region. Add to this land clearing for live stock and agriculture leading to soil erosion and the rain cycle is further disrupted and soil moisture and water retention is lost as desertification increases within drought stricken areas. There is no-one cause(ie:pollution of the air), but a system of ecological erosion by man.
In Australia we are suffering a drought and one of our major river systems is near total collapse. This has been attributed to GW pushing the normal patterns of rainfall further away. This was predicted within weather models based on global warming, but it was'nt expected for another 20 years.

You will notice the incidence of drought begins to rapidly increase post 1950, also with it windstorms( top soil erosion), the incidence of flooding, the incidence of epidemics, and also of interest is the rise in earthquakes.

Car exhaust fumes cause lightning strikes.

"Now it seems weekday pollution can bring lightning as well as rain."

If our pollution could effect the rain, you think it could cause it not to rain, and cause droughts?

I just seen a report today, on the News, about California worrying about droughts.

we know who u are and what u do.....................

Many chemtrail investigators have evidence that barium salts make up part of the mixture being emitted from these jets. Barium is a dessicant and absorbs moisture. The barium and probably other chemicals may also be used in conjunction with HAARP, which is a joint U.S Air Force and Navy project, to essentially control the weather.

What are you talking about?


It is already admitted that aircraft's are seeding the sky's over places that are very prone to hail storms, to stop hail from happening, because insurance companies hate paying the millions in damage that mother nature does.
