The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is trying to squeeze every last drop of rain from its clouds by launching salt missiles into them from planes. The technique is known as cloud seeding, and its purpose is to increase condensation in the hope that it might trigger a downpour… A leading academic told how he got a mysterious phone call asking whether foreign countries could be triggering droughts or flooding. Professor Alan Robock, from Rutgers University in New Jersey, said: ‘Consultants working for the CIA rang and said we’d like to know if someone is controlling the world’s climate would we know about it?’ ‘Of course they were also asking – if we control someone else’s climate would they then know about it."… The professor is one of many scientists from around the world are actively looking at manipulating the weather as a way of combating climate change. Professor Robock told the callers that any attempts to meddle with the weather on a large scale would be detectable.
