The cost of weather manipulation


On this episode of The Cost of Everything, we take a closer look at the technology used by government officials to manipulate the weather for their own economic advantages. Host Christy Ai speaks with author Jim Fleming to discuss how much it costs to fabricate rain, how it is a costly technology that only a few countries can afford to implement, and how it is a hot political topic between countries like China and India. They also discuss how unpredictable it can be when it comes to cloud seeding and other weather manipulation techniques, as Mother Nature has a mind of her own.
