Below is a copy of a letter i had published in the Courier Mail and the Toowoomba Chronicle last week.Am still waiting feed back on the subject. What are your thoughts on the idea?.
We leave Cloncurry in the morning and into Adels Grove on Sat. morning. Looking forward to it as we have not been there before.

To whom it may concern,
Being a regular visitor to the lovely state of Queensland i have been following the debate on how to fix the shortage of water in Toowoomba, Brisbane and S.E.Qld.If any one is interested just type "Cloud seeding for Rain"
in Google and hit the search button for Aust. There are dozens of sites that tell all about the advantages of Cloud Seeding.
Down in Tassie where i live there are often articles in the local paper on it.Just before we left down there two Mths.ago there was an article in the Advocate about the Mayor's of Queenstown and Strahan asking Hydro stop Cloud Seeding as it was causeing too much rain and they claimed it was turning Tourist's away.
I think it would be worth Qld. Govt. and Councils haveing a close look at it as the results happen pretty well straight away if the conditions are right.
I don't think it has been mentioned in the debate before and the way things are i think they need to explore every avenue that is available.

The debate has been discussed just the other day on the TV media with regards to a new radical idea to solving the problem! A reported expert have solved the problem with cloud seeding as it seems that the pollution/smog has formed an ecosystem where, whilst it is raining, the catchments are missing out. As my wife is a Consulting Engineer specialising in Water and Wastewater, and i do talk to her from time to time, she has been following the debate with interest (we also lived in toowoomba for almost 30 years and have all our family still there). After asking her the same question, she claimed there is no little proof that it works as well as claimed, that she has seen come across her desk. She stated that the numerous consultants employed to deal with the crisis would have at least considered it as an option, and obviously dismissed it for valid reasons. I guess it is like f!tch products....maybe they do, maybe they don't ;-)

Until people use no water, she will always be in a great job area :-)
