Machines that prod clouds to make snow may sound like something out of an old science fiction movie. But worsening water scarcity, combined with new evidence that “cloud seeding” can work, is spurring states, counties, water districts and power companies across the thirsty West to use the strategy.
"‘Cloud Seeding’ May Make It Snow, but Will It Reduce Droughts in the West?" is from the February 26, 2018 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Sophie Quinton and narrated by Sam Scholl.
