Cloudbusting is a wild frontier where anybody can do exactly as he pleases with the fragile atmosphere upon which all life depends. Most of the people who take up cloudbusting have good intentions and think they are doing the right thing, but they nearly all lack any real knowledge of the little-known branch of physics that the cloudbuster is based on, and they also are almost all totally ignorant of the biological sciences that would enable them to understand the potential effects on the ecosystems they will inevitably affect.
And there are some who are sadists or psychopaths or driven by a need to dominate and control. Such persons are attracted to cloudbusting for the feeling of power that it gives them. They enjoy the feeling that they get to decide what weather the rest of us have to endure.
And the rest of us are at their mercy.
I am trying to change that. I am trying to get a movement going to demand transparency and accountability in the cloudbusting field. There should be standards set, a professional Code Of Ethics, training, insurance coverage, consultations with ecologists, and some way to sanction those who are found guilty of malpractice.
Because the atmosphere is too important to be left to whoever wants to control it. And it does not belong to them. It belongs to us.
