Of course. We have the same problem in Cyprus. It's an island in the
Mediterranean where there's been continuous civilization for more than
ten thousand years. During that time there have been many periods with
not enough rainfall, and sometimes with droughts that lasted for years.
But the population was entirely self-sufficient and never needed to
import anything, and continued to grow its own food, make its clothes,
medicines, tools, etc. even throughout the difficult years. It was done
by adapting the shape of the culture, lifestyles, production, etc. to
the resources that nature made available.
Nowadays we still go through various cycles of rain and drought. But
even though there have been immense water dams built blocking up all the
seasonal rivers, most of my life here we've had water rationing. The
water is "not enough" even in the years of abundant rain. Why? Because
since the traditional ways of life were abandoned and modern lifestyles
became prevalent, we waste all of our water by filling swimming pools,
producing (in a semi-desert) water-intensive veggies and fruits for
export, and using tremendous amounts of water for construction of
concrete buildings all over the island.
The degree to which water shortage in an area is real has a lot to do
with whether the people who live, work and produce there are doing it in
harmony with the conditions of that bioregion.
Additionally, there's plenty of conventional water transport systems
that in a country like Texas could very easily be implemented (if there
was real need) before we start looking into interfering with the
atmosphere. One such a system was built by Ghaddafi in Libya, to benefit
all the people who live in near-desert and actual desert conditions.
Ghaddafi built this system to benefit the people of Libya by using the
revenues from the country's oil industry. More information about it here:
Anyway, in order to diagnose correctly whether a region is actually in
need of Orgonomic interference a whole lot more must be evaluated than
just the needs of an out-of-balance lifestyle. Ecological studies are a
must. Also, an Orgonomic study of the atmosphere needs to be done. Is
the atmosphere in that region really sick? If there is a problem, is the
problem being caused there, or is it five hundred miles upwind where a
large polluted city or nuclear reactor might be blocking up the natural
flow of the atmosphere's processes?
And the questions of where must a team of Orgonomy workers set up a base
of operations; what directions to draw from; how long; to what effect,
etc. are all extremely crucial.
None of those burning questions can be by-passed by just saying "this
town needs water, let's do cloudbusting". And when in fact they are
by-passed with this ignorant attitude, a whole lot of disasters can
