Piove, governo ladro!

An interesting story this week from Reuters: a sack of cement comes crashing through a surburban Moscow roof. The accident was due to a Russian airforce weather control exercice. Apparently:

"Ahead of major public holidays the Russian Air Force often dispatches up to 12 cargo planes carrying loads of silver iodide, liquid nitrogen and cement powder to seed clouds above Moscow and empty the skies of moisture"

Hmm, I wonder what other governments employ similar weather modification techniques? One thing's for sure: If the British government sprays our clouds, they won't tell us for about fifty years.
