All I Want Is Some Frickin Clouds, and some Frickin' Laser Beams!

Scientists in Switzerland have been testing the ability to affect the weather by firing laser beams into the air, possibly rainfall—they haven't gotten that far yet—but at the very least having some on where rain falls and how heavily.

I have no idea what the practical applications or moral implications of this sort of technology would be. It's a bit too close science fiction for me to process.
