Why do we humans feel the need to constatly eff with Mother Nature. She worked out just fine for all these years...well until we started polluting it with all our "man-made" toxins , trash & poisons destroying the natural processes & over consumming all her resources. We already felt the need to criss-cross plant & animal DNA into "frankenfoods"...clone & abuse animals for food & now we want to control the weather? Wow- you people better hope there isn't a God...cause if I were Him? I'd break my promise so fast, your heads would swim...LITERALLY. Boom-Boom Pow! and-a , let it rain.

A little knowledge...

I think you've misunderstood what is meant by "mitigation". There isn't a concerted effort to change the weather, at least not in this bill. It's essentially risk management and research into disaster mitigation.

This is what FEMA says about mitigation:

"What is Mitigation?

Mitigation is the effort to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters. This is achieved through risk analysis, which results in information that provides a foundation for mitigation activities that reduce risk, and flood insurance that protects financial investment.

FEMA’s Mitigation Directorate manages the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and implements a variety of programs authorized by Congress to reduce losses that may result from natural disasters. Effective Mitigation efforts can break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage."
