However, human activities sometimes do have effects on climatic conditions. Physical changes to vast areas caused by human activities, often change the course of natural flows of energy and material. These human influences sometimes leave long-term effects that cause climate changes. Thus, they can also be seen as Climate Control in a certain perspective.
A number of processes can be discerned in recent practices regarding Climate Control. Common examples of Climate Control are - Cloud Seeding for Rain, Storm Prevention, and Ionospheric Experiments. Climate Control is the basic requisite in the case of many scientific experiments and is often very effectively used in factory productions.
Climate Control is a major subject for future aspirations as far as Climatologists are concerned. Ross Hoffman and John Smart are the two eminent climatologists who have ventured into large-scale climate control through remarkable experiments.
Nevertheless, large scale Climate Control may include potential risks such as - damage to existing ecosystems, health risks to humans, malfunction of equipments or accidents, non-democratic Climate Control or usage as a weapon.
