Making it rain

Sneaky Swiss!
A company out of Switzerland called Meteo Systems has claimed that it is responsible for 52 unexpected storms in the Middle East. I don't know if I recall my lazy Sundays with the Discovery Channel accurately, but isn't the Earth's weather system a finely balanced network? Butterfly effects abound and global warming in the Arctic can bring about frigid winters in New England? Of all the supposed hubris and folly of man's attempts to control nature, making it rain in the desert seems to me a pretty dangerous proposition.
