Legal Remedies for “Cloud-Seeding” Activities

November 21, 2023 | ZeroGeoEngineering.com |1960 Duke Law Journal article examines cases addressing the question of liability for “cloud-seeding”.

In the decision of Southwest Weather Research, Inc. v. Duncan, “The court’s holding that the plaintiffs have rights in the water in the clouds is based on the common-law doctrine of natural rights.8 The landowner is said to have the right to the reasonable use and enjoyment of his land in its natural condition, free from the interference of others.
The activities of the defendants, in depriving’ the plaintiffs of the natural amount of rainfall, violated one of their natural rights and gave them a right of action in equity.10”

The article discusses subsequent cases which established precedent that “landowners are entitled to legal protection from “cloud-seeding” which constitutes an unreasonable interference with their right to natural precipitation.”
