Submission + - Geoengineering Snow in Moscow, Fail! (globalpost.com)

dinoyum writes: Moscow Mayor Yury Luzhkov's promise of a winter without snow in the capitol city has fallen short. While cloud seeding is not a new concept for Russia, often used on major holidays, geoengineering snow has never been done to that magnitude. Carrying off the $6 million procedure required Jets to spray silver iodide into coming clouds, ensuring that all precipitation fall before it reached the capital. However a combination of disrupted radar, wind control, and faulty weathermen have been blamed by Luzhkov's for his failed attempt at playing mother nature. For now, Russia can go back to enjoying snow.
