DailyDirt: Don't Just Talk About The Weather...

- NASA could make it rain when it tested space shuttle rocket engines in the wetlands of Mississippi. Hydrogen fuel burned with oxygen produces water, but just adding water to the atmosphere doesn't necessarily produce a rainstorm. [url]
- China tried to control the weather around Beijing before the Summer Olympics of 2008. "Tried" is perhaps the key word, since weather modification isn't quite an exact science just yet. But then again, it didn't rain during the opening and closing ceremonies in 2008.... [url]
- Geoengineering climate change is even more ambitious -- and potentially dangerous. But given that the world hasn't stopped its CO2 emissions, it doesn't really hurt to put together some plans for correcting our atmospheric mistakes (whether or not they'll be needed). [url]
