Drought Conditions Ruining Everything? Try some 7-Up!

I hear that a lot of the world is suffering from horrible drought. The reasons why, seems complicated and how to solve the problem seems nearly impossible to figure out. Until now. I was watching this artifact from a forgotten era known as the eighties and found some knowledge I found while doing so, could potentially change the world. Are you ready for this? Okay, here goes…

7-Up makes it rain.

I know, it sounds crazy, but hear me out. This farmer was looking very depressed and his ground was bone dry. Everything looks hopeless. Then he popped open a 7-Up and magic happened. It started raining. Maybe our drought issues are being caused by our waning interest in soda? I am not a scientist, but I think this is at least worth investigating.
