    Just how much control do you think our government has? Do you think that they could control the weather? Think it sounds crazy, think again. They even have it written into law. Oh, I almost forgot, you had better report it to the Secretary of Commerce though if anyone outside the government wants to do it or you may get in trouble. Check out the link below to Cornell law. Make sure you read the definitions page.

    [link to www.law.cornell.edu]

    Definitions:

    (1) The term “Secretary” means the Secretary of Commerce.
    (2) The term “person” means any individual, corporation, company, association, firm, partnership, society, joint stock company, any State or local government or any agency thereof, or any other organization, whether commercial or nonprofit, who is performing weather modification activities, except where acting solely as an employee, agent, or independent contractor of the Federal Government.
    (3) The term “weather modification” means any activity performed with the intention of producing artificial changes in the composition, behavior, or dynamics of the atmosphere.
    (4) The term “United States” includes the several States, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and any territory or insular possession of the United States. :huh:

    Many locals and states make illegal the collection of rainwater from a private home, claiming it is public water. So much for 'going green'...,

    Thus, it is your duty to harvest the rainwater in protest.

    I'm working on getting a surplus 50,000 gallon bladder for that very purpose.

    They say it is illegal to manipulate the weather in any way. So if your an indian doing a rain dance you can be fined up to 10,000.00. That sounds like a legal matter to me.

    This all sounds funny, but it's astonishingly closer to reality than most of us know.

    Attempting to mess with the weather is a terrible friggin idea. It's called a system for a reason; you kick it, it'll kick right back in accordance with the law of unintended consequences. This government law is actually a decent attempt at prevention from private corporations dousing their Iowan corn fields with no check in place to track what happened down the line. Your insurance company would be using chaos theory to determine your rates.

    He's somewhat right. It's a terribly confusing topic with little guidance to most of us. I know around the Puget Sound it's promoted because the runoff is a giant environmental hazard. That's in a port city though and we want to collect as much as possible. If you're up in an area with natural rivers and ponds it will of course be different.

    Best thing I can suggest is to not be a douche, call about your area for guidance and collect appropriately because it's more or less coming down on the individual's responsibility.
