Leave It To The Laser To Control The Weather — Dave’s Diary

This week’s weather forecast looks amazing! Low to mid 80’s thru Friday.  Global warming?  Kidding!  The feds just came out with another report on global warming which has both sides of the argument scrambling to shore up each side of their argument.  Do you think man’s activity really does affect the weather?What if it could?

What if you could choose tomorrow’s weather? Scientists say it would definitely be possible to control the weather with a laser beam.  The laser would have to have the right combination of range, precision and strength but they say conceptually it’s possible.

Scientists have long known that water condensation and lightning activity in storm clouds are associated with large amounts of statically charged particles, and researchers say they can manipulate those particles with a laser. Researchers believe they could seed the conditions needed for a rainstorm from afar. Ultimately artificially controlling the rain and lightning over a large expanse with such ideas.

However, there are no plans to make the giant laser beam just yet. (UPI)
