using technology to control cloud, wind, rain....

in my town there was series of disturbing usage of high powered Light-Beam (laser?) that shoot toward cloud, after several hours the cloud dispersed, reducing chance of raining for the day...
that was, of course, heavily protested by local farmers, for obvious reason.

but i notice that the cloud were disperses to surrounding area about 50 km, of the light focus point.


the idea is to fleece the cloud cluster, so it will give better & controled "share" of rainfall in planet surface, by expectation of technology will this be achieved in next few decades?

IMpossible.

The Idea is good, but it won't happen, even if we reach the futuristic age or such.
Even if you're the most smartest person in the world, you can't make something like that.
Also, Nature can't be controlled by man.

no because eventually the rain will fall some other time.

This sort of thing has been happening for decades. Clouds have been "seeded" with sodium nitrate to induce rain for quite some time. When I first read the title of this, I thought you were going to mention something like the mess created in the second Highlander movie (a dome around the earth to protect it from too strong/harmful solar rays)

Just because we can't now doesn't mean it is impossible.

I believe that we'll most likely create something like this. It could even become a weapon of terror.

Yeh, if it was possible in the future, it can be used for so many bad things.

Going off of what AHTL and Hachimakii said, what if someone managed to hack into the weather control's computer system?!?! Sure, the people who made it may claim it is "unhackable," but these days, hacking into ANYTHING is extremely easy...
