Cola Playhouse 10:05 Weather 10:10 News 10:15 Late Show Scientist Says 'Rainmaking' Caused Floods Army Experiments Blamed for Missouri Valley Floods in '52 By BILL RICHARDSON ALBUQUERQUE (.#—The man man who fathered the science of making rain said today he believes armed forces experiments may have caused the disastrous Missouri. Valley floods of June 1952. Dr. Irving Langmuir, a Nobel Prize winner and consultant for General Electric Co. experiments with rainmaking, also declared: 1. An Air Force test on a tornado off the eastern coast Oct. 17, 1947, may have turned the twister off its course and pushed, it into Savannah, Ga., with damage of five million dollars. 2. There is evidence that rainmaking in some areas may create drought in others. Seeking: Answers Langmuir was interviewed while attending the International Arid Lands Symposium, where scientists from 18 nations are seeking- answers to the rapidly growing arid regions which already cover a third of the earth's land surface. He declared that he thinks now— and insisted at the time—that a single silver iodide generator operating at Alamogordo, N. M., under Project Cirrus caused the steady downpours which drowned the "Missouri Valley three years ago. "We had been seeding for some time, and the storms kept getting bigger and better. I told them (the | armed forces heads administering the project) that I felt we ought to stop seeding us the rains in the Missouri Valley kept falling. "But the administrator of the project was on vacation at the time. No one would take responsibility for ordering the seeding stopped. "Finally, I told them we must stop, things were getting serious. "We stopped on July 2. On Julj< 7 the flood just about devastated ' Omaha." ! Can Affect Weather Langmuir explained how a lone cloud generator in New Mexico could affect the weather so far away: The silver iodide particles are sent into the air, say, in New Mexico, Winds from the west blow them across the Mississippi, where they come in contact with moist air masses coming in from the Gulf of Mexico. A particle of silver iodide about the size of a pencil dot is enough to affect a cubic mile of air weigh- ng 100 million tons, Langmuir said. Once a storm has been started, it triggers other storms. And if the cloud seeder is restarted at intervals, you get rain at about the same intervals. "If we had stopped our generator two weeks earlier," Langmuir said, "the Missouri Valley floods would not have happened." Langmuir said that on Oct. 17, 1947, an Air Force plane seeded a tornado heading north off the East Const. The twister turned 120 degrees, "which the Weather Bureau said was impossible," and smashed On to Savannah. "There was. not one chance in 7,000 that the tornado would have tu'-necl if it had not been seeded. Langmuir said. "I had suggested that we wait until the storm was further north nnd out to sea to experiment. ' Chile's vast mining resources produce two-lhirds of all the minerals mined in South America.
