Senate President Vicente C. Sotto III proposed a cloud seeding program Monday to clean up debris and clear the air in areas affected by ash falls caused by the eruption of Taal volcano last Sunday afternoon because “water dissolves the ash fall debris.”

Sotto told Senate reporters that he has sent word of his proposal to the executive branch through Senator Christopher “Bong” Go and Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea.

“(The Philippine) Air Force (PAF) is now being informed of my suggestion,” he said. “PAF has a group that handles that. Pinag-aaralan na (the proposal is being studied) as we speak.”

Sotto said his colleagues in the 24-member Senate support his suggestion.
