A Program has been Created in Texas to try to Control the Weather

The Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation can license you to try to control and change the weather.

Why would you want to create a storm? And why would the state license you to do so?

According to Texas.gov, Weather Modification covers over 16% of land in the state of Texas and has been happening for over 20 years.

There are many dry areas in Texas that need additional rainfall. Weather Modification is focused on producing more rainfall for crops in drier areas of West and South Texas.

The Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation licenses trained meteorologists that are experts in weather modification.

Using Aircraft, cloud seeding happens over the skies of parts of Texas, when silver iodide and salts are dispersed into the air. This causes cloud formation and targeted rainfall on dry areas that are in need.
