New satellites, high tech measuring equipment and improving supercomputers are helping scientists and researchers learn more about the weather patterns of the earth. By mid century you can expect more accurate weather predictions and eventually, controlling the weather itself.
Governments throughout the world are researching weather modification. Potential benefits of controlling the weather would be increasing crop yields, decreasing the severity of storms, accurate forecasts, eliminate drought, stop global warming, protection from harmful solar energy, clear skies for astronomers, air traffic, solar panels. There are also military uses, such as making sure the weather is clear for a mission or covering the enemy with snow, fog, hail or lightning strikes.
A far better use of weather modification would be if we could someday stop a hurricane like Katrina from ever reaching land. That would be a future to behold.

We should interfere because millions of lives could be saved by eliminating or at least decreasing the severity of hurricanes, tornados and so on. However that being said I do feel that man should not interfere with the 'usual' weather patterns as to not cause an imbalance and damage ecosystems. Furthermore, as far as i can see every time man has interfered with nature it has had damaging and unforeseen repercussions, for example the introduction of certain animals into new habitats has caused the near extinction of many species of plants and animals and no doubt the actual extinction of some species, because of the intervention by man. On the other hand, you could argue that in this case mans intervention was simply accelerating natural selection and as such 'helping' nature.

That might be a bad idea because you could damage the ecosystem and animals and scar mother Earth forever
