Ugh, the thought of humans controlling the weather makes me sick. Humans control enough as it is. Some things are best left to nature. And like Patricius Maximus pointed out, it would make weather politicized. And does anyone really want to see weather used as a weapon in warfare? Because you know it would happen. Besides all that, though, I don't want predictable weather. That's part of the beauty of nature, and aesthetics matter to some people. If I'm going to get weather I don't like, I'd rather it be from nature than some cabal of powerful individuals, corporate or government. And you want them to be able to control the weather, too?!

lol... every time man tries to "fix" stuff he doesn't understand, he typically leaves nothing behind but a wake of destruction and good intentions... i.e. the problem of "soil erosion", solved by terracing, destroyed the river system.

Kind of like it just the way it is now. It's just that we have too many people living on it.

Imagine if the whole world:s climate resembled that of London, what a boring world that would be...

If we can control the weather in the future, I will campaign for the climate to be like Turku everywhere. All tropical climates will be removed.

An Oceanic climate would be the sensible choice. A little of everything and not too much of anything.

It must be a sunny oceanic climate though, or at least having 2,500 hours of annual sunshine.

The weather should be based off of holidays for certain locations. December 25th should have snow all day. Halloween should be cloudy and cool. Days like independence day should be sunny.

A mild climate would be the most agreeable if we had to pick one.


Here's a climate we could probably agree on emulating decently well:
Auckland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I like the oceanic climate of Hamilton, Bermuda better. Has far warmer ocean water than Auckland.
