Silver iodide (the chemical the city intends to use) is a toxic metal halide. Here and here are links to safety data sheets concerning silver iodide.

 

Cloud seeding has not been proven effective during a drought. See the last two paragraphs of this article for a link to more info on this.

 

This is an environmental and ecological experiment since we really do not know the effects of this type of intervention on the climate, atmosphere, land, people, animals, water, etc.

 

As long as citizens continue to erode and strip the soil of all moisture and nutrients, this problem will persist and cloud seeding can be considered no more than an attempt at a band-aid solution.

 

If the city is actually interested in improving conditions, our money would be better spent educating and promoting self-sustaining, moisture-retaining farming, ranching, landscaping, and gardening practices.

 

Many view this type of intervention as an effort to usurp God's power and do not want their money supporting that type of work.

To:
City of Wichita Falls
Reverse the city's decision to implement cloud seeding.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Cloud seeding is making the water molecules too light to drop and give us rain. This needs to stop NOW!!!

      There could be severe, long term health effects on the people of the region due to the use of this toxic chemical. I can avoid second hand smoke, and the ill effects of alcohol by staying away from them. The only way to stay away from a chemical that is spread throughout the sky is to move away from this area.

      It has been since 1979 that WF was demolished by a tornado. The consequences of cloud seeding could be devastating for our town. If it works, are we going to continue to use cloud seeding to produce rain? If so what does that kind of constant exposure mean for our families health? Produce, water supply, livestock...

      Because, I do not think spraying toxins in the sky will be a good solution tour problem - it may very well compound our problems instead!
