    DBWI: Irrigated Central Asia

    Strangely enough, according to authors Kurt Vonnegut and Rachel Carson, the American and Soviet "cloud-seeding projects" of the 1950s/ 1960s were some of the primary reasons for the establishment of the dreaded "Greenie" movement. Consider that the "Second Dust Bowl" in the 1980s/ 1990s...
