- absolutely no need for this...rainmakers, get off your butts & bring it!; http://t.co/e4rmwnXy about 2 hours ago
He seems to think it would be a good thing, a helpful thing, if an unknown number of people, none of them knowing what the others were doing, would start pointing cloudbusters at the sky. They would choose what directions to point them at random, since they would have no idea what to do with a cloudbuster except to aim it at the sky. They would not know anything about how to recognize DOR if they saw it, or about the role DOR plays in causing a drought. They would not know what a DOR-removal operation was.
They would not know what reaction to expect from the atmosphere, so if they happened to pick the right direction by a lucky chance, they would not recognize resuilts when they happened, and if by chance they did break up the DOR field, would not know when they had succeeded in breaking up the DOR field that is causing the drought. So they would probably not know to stop when they had accomlished that, and would keep drawing until rain began, probably causing a flood.
That is, unless their operations were countered by someone else, pointing another cloudbuster in the opposite direction, since Jerry does not tell his readers how to choose what direction to point it, leaving them to guess at that vital detail.
With an unknown number of cloudbusters in the same area, operating at random, and none of them aware of each other, the results are not likely to be good. But Jerry is a techno-freak, and seems unable to understand that not all invention is a good thing.
The drought IS serious. And it could be solved with a cloudbuster. All that is true. But the right way to do it would be to have only one or two cloudbusters, which is all an area the size of Texas needs, and to have them working together in a co-ordinated way, and operated by experienced people who understand the principles behind cloudbusting, and after having consulted with an ecologist.
And any operations should be done with the awareness that a drought is caused by DOR and DOR-removal is the goal of the operation, not ''rainmaking'' per se.
And, even with trained operators who know what they are doing, it would be a good idea to carry insurance in case you cause any damages somebody could sue you for.
Come on, Jerry. A little logic, please. Think it over. I am sure you will realize that mass cloudbusting by untrained beginners is not in anyone's interests, not even in a drought.
