I would assume this plan was directed before all the horrendous flooding that is happening this rainy season in much of Asia. Part of the whole Tibet move by the Chinese has been about control of the water from that region..

The Chinese have built 7 dams on the Mekong and depending on how far down stream a county is the water is almost non existent; which affects a little over a billion people in different countries.


China is launching the world's largest weather-control machine, with the ability to modify the weather in an area similar to the size of Alaska. China has never shied away from doing things on a massive scale and this is yet another example of the Chinese government working on an unprecedented scale.

China's state-owned Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation is implementing a plan to send thousands of rain-inducing machines across the Tibetan Plateau to increase rainfall along the region.

The Tibetan Plateau is the source of much of China's water, running down from the mountainous highlands via the massive Yangtze, Mekong, and Yellow rivers. These rivers, which originate on the Tibetan Plateau, are fed by glacial and snow meltwater and drain down into the fertile Chinese farmlands.

Their weather modifications attempts have all backfired historically.

They cant even stop the floods in over 1/4 of the country.

Good luck China.

You do realise that article is 2 years old?

Perhaps they are building dams to store water for their many millions of citizens? That is what dams are traditionally used for - water storage.

They probably even justify it by almost ignoring the sparsely populated countries downstream and saying it is "for the greater good". How cynical.


edit on 26/7/2020 by chr0naut because: Did you know that America has dams too! About 90,000 of them.

The way China builds things, there just holding onto that water temporarily.

Soon they will witness trickle down water storage in action, and those billion people will all get their water back.... All at once.

Yes.
Dams "store" water.
But are not classed as weather changing machines.
Which is the subject of the thread.

Old news but the us has been doing this since the 80s

Using history as a guide, you are spot on.



WHY YOU SHOULD CARE

Because the past has lessons for today’s dam-building spree.

Workers stood along the top of Banqiao Dam, some 150 feet above the valley’s floor, desperately trying to repair its crest as rain from Typhoon Nina fell for a third straight day. After battering Taiwan, the storm had moved inland where it was expected to dissipate, but Nina turned north instead, reaching the Huai River basin on Aug. 5, 1975, where a cold front blocked its progression. Parked in place, the typhoon generated more than a year’s worth of rain in 24 hours.

By the time night fell on Aug. 8, as many as 65 area dams had collapsed. But despite the fact that water levels at the Banqiao Dam had far exceeded a safe capacity, and a number of sluice gates for controlling water flow were clogged with silt, authorities felt confident they’d skirt disaster. After all, the Soviet-designed dam had been built to survive a typhoon — a once-every-1,000-year occurrence that could dump 11 inches of rain per day. Unfortunately, Typhoon Nina would prove to be a once-every-2,000-year storm, bearing down with enough force to cause the world’s deadliest infrastructure failure ever.

Chen Xing, one of China’s foremost hydrologists, had followed the construction of Banqiao in 1952 with concern. Chairman Mao Zedong, eager to modernize the country, ordered hundreds of dams built, which put people to work, provided electricity and tamed rivers as part of his brutal Great Leap Forward. After swimming across the Yangtze River in 1958, Mao penned a poem about his obsession with dams: “Great plans are being made/ Walls of stone will stand upstream to the west …The mountain goddess if she is still there/ Will marvel at a world so changed.” Decades later, ignoring warnings from scientists and environmentalists, the Chinese government initiated construction of the Three Gorges Dam — the world’s largest power station — on the Yangtze.


230,000 Died in a Dam Collapse That China Kept Secret for Years

Boy, I would like to know the basis of their technology to see what they are doing and what evidence there is to back their idea.

They are up to this, also.



China is planning on launching a satellite into space that will illuminate as much as 80 km of land beneath it. The artificial moon, as it's known, is capable of replacing street lighting and has been in development for some time.

The light produced by the satellite will be eight times brighter than that from the real Moon. But unlike the Moon the output is controllable and can be adjusted to illuminate between 10 and 80 kilometers.

The satellite will be focused on the city of Chengdu, one of the three most populous cities in western China. Roughly 14.5 million people live in the region.


China is planning to launch a FAKE moon into space with ambitious new mission

I know it's a few years old and the Mirror. It was at the top of the search results and they always have lots of good pictures.


China is not the only country to think of this. A link from Wikipedia about space mirrors in general.
Space mirror (climate engineering)



The concept of the construction of space mirrors as a method of climate engineering date back to the 1980s. The first proposals were suggested to cool Venus’s climate to provide for a theoretical future where humans occupy other planets.[4] In 1989, James Early, working at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, proposed using a "space shade" 2,000 kilometers in diameter orbiting at Lagrangian Point L1. He estimated the cost at between one and ten trillion US dollars and suggested manufacturing it on the moon using moon rock.[4]

Space mirrors were also proposed at the “Response Options to Rapid or Severe Climate Change” round-table meeting organized by the President's Climate Change Technology Program in September 2001. Lowell Wood, a senior staff scientist at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory proposed stationing one or more wire-mesh “mirrors” in orbit to deflect sunlight back into space or to filter it. Wood calculated that deflecting 1% of sunlight would restore climatic stability, and that that would require either a single mirror 600,000 square miles (1,600,000 km2) in area or several smaller ones. Wood had been researching the idea for more than ten years but considered it so infeasible that it should only be a back-up plan for solving the global warming problem.

In January 2007, The Guardian reported that the US government recommended that research on sunlight deflection, including space mirrors, be continued in line with the next United Nations Report on Climate Change.[5][6] In addition to the space mirror, suggested sunlight-reducing techniques included launching thousands of highly reflective balloons and pumping sulphate droplets into the upper atmosphere to emulate volcanic emissions.[4][5]

China's weather control attempts can have unintended consequences for other countries. Like India, that could be hit with flooding that kills thousands.
