Rain God by Ian James Frazer (2023)


The Highs and Lows of Clement Wragge, meteorologist on a mission.


Clement Wragge, Australia's renowned 19th-century meteorologist, was ahead of his time with concerns that resonate today. The severe Federation drought in 1902 led him to explore unconventional methods like sunspot-watching and rainmaking technologies. He believed that land clearing intensified droughts and passionately argued for reforestation and water-saving initiatives. "Rain God" delves into Wragge's multifaceted life, touching on his self-taught meteorological endeavors, travels as a science speaker, and deep interest in spiritual practices like Theosophy and séances.
