Make It Rain: State Control of the Atmosphere in Twentieth-Century America (Book)
Title: Make It Rain: State Control of the Atmosphere in Twentieth-Century America
Author: Kristine C. Harper
Abstract: In Make It Rain, Kristine C. Harper tells the long and somewhat absurd history of state-funded attempts to manage, manipulate, and deploy the weather in America. Harper shows that governments from the federal to the local became helplessly captivated by the idea that weather control could promote agriculture, health, industrial output, and economic growth at home, or even be used as a military weapon and diplomatic tool abroad.
