    Based on engineering studies of the Towers of Death in London and Vegas and the two X marks the spot towns in FL Engineers worldwide know how to heat the air well enough to create regular rain. Warmer air is lower pressure air and this attracts higher pressure air from all directions. That in turn increases tornadic and cyclonic activity. Death rates from fires and other desert problems would go way down. Also reduced soil salinity would increase agricultural out put as salt is washed out of the soil.

    Since effectively all engineering, agronomy and meteorology schools in Australia would pretty much have to cover how to do this. Since this is well understood by the people on the ground there must be some extreme costs in making Australia Green and wet, do you know what those costs are?

    Well, first you have to get rid of the worms that create the giant spice masses or the whole thing is going to blow.

    This comment doesn't even rise to good nonsense, so what is your point?

    Halliburton's Weather machine could do that. But last I heard, they locked it away in a warehouse in Area 51, where it will never be found..

    But seriously, I'm not sure if they could do something on that big of a scale, without adversely effecting the weather somewhere else. It's called the "Butterfly Effect."
