Environmental consultant Aron Gingis makes a dire, and highly scientific, prediction for Tasmania should the proposed Gunn's pulp mill ever be built:
TIM JEANES: How can a pulp mill change rainfall?

ARON GINGIS: The pulp mill will produce large quantities of fine and ultra-fine particles, which by mixing with the clouds will change the cloud microphysics and make this cloud in fact constipated, in other words, the clouds will be still rolling in, but production ability of those clouds will be substantially reduced.
It sounds like Metamucil cloud seeding might be in order. Either that or all that water will remain airborne forever.

Maybe if after every wood pulp they pulped a couple of tons of bran there wouldn't be a problem.
I'm also a bit disturbed with the inference that everytime it rains it's Gaia shitting on us.

Ultra-fine particles are exactly what you need in a cloud if you want it to rain.
