Is Cloud Seeding a Method to Help the Environment or Tear It Down

- ... According to, Casper Star Tribune, Wyoming has spent 8.8 million dollars in its fourth year with cloud seeding (screen 1). That means every year Wyoming spends 2.2 million dollars on just a single cause (cloud seeding). Just ask yourself is it really necessary.

The Silver Barrette

- The Silver Barrette My index finger traces along the cool silver edges of the barrette, mindlessly, stroking the smooth round backs of the curled-in waves along its perimeter.
