Moscow's Mayor, Yir Luzhkov, plans to stop the skies over Russia's capital city from snowing this winter.
Luzhkov plans to use the Russian Air Force to spray liquid nitrogen, silver or cement particles into the sky, forcing snow-filled clouds to lose precipitation before settling over Moscow, according to Time magazine.
The mayor says that the plan will help the city's suburbs by producing more moisture in the areas surrounding the city, allowing for a bigger harvest.
The plan will also save the metropolis money because, according to Luzhkov, the city will save the $12 million it pays every year on snow removal.
The plan itself would cost about $6 million, Time reported.
This is not the first time that Luzhkov has tried to govern the natural environment.
In 2002, he proposed a project to reverse the flow of Russia's Ob River through Siberia to help irrigate the country's drought-ridden Central Asian neighbors,. Scientists ruled that the plan was not possible.
