Russia has been experimenting with climate modification for decades, so Mother Nature got really pissed off at them this past summer. But how did their efforts work out last winter?

(METEOROLOGYNEWS.COM) When one thinks of Moscow in the winter, visions of snow-covered domes and Russians cloaked in fur coats often come to mind. But if the mayor of Moscow has his way, this winter will be much different. It will be a winter without snow. And recent observations of the skies over Moscow indicate he may have already tested out his plan…with some eye-catching results.
How did that work out for him?
A total of 392,000 cubic meters of snow have been removed from Moscow streets in the past 24 hours, a spokesman for the Russian capital’s authorities said Sunday. He said since the start of the winter, over 17 million cu m of snow have been cleared in Moscow. Meteorologists say February has seen record snowfalls in the Russian capital in the past 40 years.
Don’t mess with Mother Nature.
