Weather modification is not an esoteric dream; years of research have brought the science of climate control into the realm of accepted fact -- soon technicians will be turning on and off the rain one day and causing snow to fall the next. Legislature concerning this newborn science has been few and far between. The usual adherence to the doctrine of stare decisis, using precedent cases as landmark decisions and ruling present disagreements accordingly, must be set aside. The dearth of extant cases on the subject does not allow the conception of uniformity among present cases, and even similar suits do not consistently reimburse the same party. This thesis examines the legal aspects of weather control and modification.
