As floods devastated Australia's east coast, social media posts accused a pilot of causing the disaster through cloud seeding, a weather modification technique that involves dropping a rain-inducing chemical into clouds. However, experts told AFP the floods were naturally occurring and cloud seeding cannot cause flooding. The pilot's aviation company said it was conducting aerial surveys for a mapping firm that provides images to insurers and emergency services.
