  In a rebroadcast from October 3, 2010, Keith & Russ talk with Sarah Brooks, Associate Professor in Texas A&M's Department of Atmospheric Science.  Sarah explains the basics of cloud formation and cloud seeding.  She also discusses how pollution can inadvertently affect cloud formation, and ultimately, weather.  And Sarah & Russ engage in a brief, but lively, debate on whether clouds and water vapor contribute to climate change.
