Man playing God grows day by day............


BEIJING (AP) -- Chinese weather specialists used chemicals to engineer Beijing's heaviest rainfall of the year, helping to relieve drought and rinse dust from China's capital, the official Xinhua News Agency reported Friday.

Technicians with the Beijing Weather Modification Office fired seven rocket shells containing 163 cigarette-size sticks of silver iodide over the city's skies on Thursday, Xinhua said.

The reaction that occurred brought as much as four-tenths of an inch of rain, the heaviest rainfall this year, helping to "alleviate drought, add soil moisture and remove dust from the air for better air quality," Xinhua said.

Though unusual in many parts of the world, China has been tinkering with artificial rainmaking for decades, using it frequently in the drought-plagued north. Last month, another artificial rainfall was generated to clear Beijing after the city suffered some of the fiercest dust storms this decade.

Whether cloud-seeding actually works has been the subject of debate in the scientific community. In 2003, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences questioned the science behind it as "too weak."


Plain and simple.It can be done.It is being done.How far can they go.
A new and improved race car can go this fast, how much faster can it go.
Rain one day, hurricane the next?

We have seen the seeding being talked about before.
I made a thread not long ago about this type of thing. .... Project Cirrus... - Project Katrina ? and I encourage you to read it as well.

…and it has been done for quite some time.

The State of Texas for example, has one of the longest running 'cloud seeding' programs also known as ‘rain enhancement projects’. The predominant use is in the augmentation of rainfall given certain conditions; however, in times of severe drought initiating the right conditions for augmentation occurs.

It was in dispute? Rainmaking has been done for a long time.

The problem is that precipiation can occur by salting the clouds, or adding chemicals to cause the water to condense.

A hurrican is formed by the inputs of energy across the entire surface of an ocean. Much more difficult, but, of course, entirely possible.

I wasnt saying there was dispute.I was just saying plain and simple it can be done.It is in writing and nobody can dispute it.Although I do believe I have read some articles saying some said it wasnt possible to get anything more than just a few small rains, but I think we all know if you can make rain, you can make worse.

I just think it is too bad man tries so hard to play God when he cant just let nature takes it's course

Sometimes man needs to alter nature to survive. One example is where I live, our water dams are drying up. Apparently within a few years, without any significant rain, it would all dry up. I certainly don't want these water restrictions in place, nor do I want to go without water.

I'm gonna take a gander at any Australian cloud seeding projects.

Indeed, weather can be controlled, its not a magical thing, its a natural thing. Making it rain is different than creating hurricanes though.

Letting people die because it hasn't rained doesn't make any sense.

SMR, can you provide the link to the original site in which you got the quote from? I want to print the article.

So what did people do before they were able to do anything about it? And Im not only talking about rain.....anyway, this may get off topic so I will just say that what I wanted to bring about in this thread was if they can do this, then I am quite sure they can manipulate the weather in any way they want and when they want.Katrina and Rita were some big storms and the way they hit and took course, just makes you wonder.

Silver iodine has been used for years If my memory serves me. I was reading about this instance and the article said China has done this before in Bejing and does so in the drought plagued Northern part of the country as well.

I don't think you could drop enough of the chemical to induce a Katrina like hurricane

They are salting the air. Yes it is possible. For Beijing I think they need it, all that smog needs some filtering by some falling water. But, they are going to get acid rain.

Los Angeles USA had the same problems with yellow smog and acid rain in decades past, until they started their no-smog agenda. The rain will etch into statues, that's how bad it gets. That is why they have such hard environmental laws, because there was time when the pollution was embarrassing.

I don't see the big problem. And I think on the side, If you are anti-chemtrail but you have an orgone cannon, isn't it a bit hypocritical? So this is a cloud-seeding program to make good stuff happen.
