The cloud seeding technology is widely used by many countries of the world in an attempt to establish control over nature. They add silver iodide, dry ice and liquid nitrogen to the clouds causing immediate precipitation. As a result, the rain will be over by the time the clouds reach the place of destination.

The results of the seeding technology both shortcoming and long-term are difficult to assess. Look at the pictures made at the dawn of May, 9th in Moscow right after the seeding technology had been used. The weather was changing very rapidly. Such a thing had never been common for Moscow before. It can definitely be a consequence of cloud seeding.

Some scientists are sure that the natural balance mustn’t be disturbed. It’s better not to use the cloud seeding technology
until the remote consequences are assessed. Harming the environment we harm peoples’ health.
