China is planning the implementation of a large-scale weather changing project to ensure a consistent rain supply. Once in place, the system has the potential to increase rainfall in the region by up to 25 trillion gallons per year. This is supposedly the world’s biggest single weather changing project ever attempted. The system is created from a network of solid fuel burning chambers that produce silver iodide, a compound with a structure much like ice that can be used in cloud seeding. From what I understand, tens of thousands of the small burning chambers will be installed across the Tibetan Plateau in an attempt to increase rainfall in an area three times as big as Spain (620,000 square miles). The system relies on small low-tech chambers which burns solid fuel that produces silver iodide. As wind sweeps up the mountain, the particles are swept up into the air where they form rain clouds. The system has been developed by China’s state-owned Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation. What the Chinese are hoping to do is to intercept Indian Monsoon rain clouds coming over the region. Officials in China have spoken about this project saying it is critical to solving China’s water shortage problem. However, there are many other uses China has for cloud seeding. If you remember, China has used weather altering technology before to keep the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympic Games free from rainfall. There’s also a more sinister use for this technology as the system was originally developed by the corporation as part of China’s defense program. China, the U.S., and Russia have all reportedly developed weather changing technology to possibly hinder opposition in times of warfare by causing drought, flood or other natural disaster. Ultimately, with their air pollution problems and acute water shortage, China appears to be a natural for becoming the world’s leading cloud-seeder. (Source: Interesting Engineering)
