Chinese Air Force to Modify Weather

CHINA will make its biggest-ever effort to control the weather and prevent rain washing out festivities marking the 60th anniversary of communist rule, state media said.

China's air force will deploy 18 aircraft to spray cloud dispersal chemicals into the atmosphere around Beijing, while "48 fog dispersal vehicles" will use similar technology at airports around the capital, the Global Times reported.

"It is the first time in Chinese history that artificial weather modification on such (a) large scale has been attempted," the paper quoted Cui Lianqing, an air force meteorologist, as

thought this was quite interesting. governments seem to be becoming more 'open' with this type of thing but we all know they have been doing them for decades. what are your thoughts on this? if they can modify weather, whos to say they don't use it to their advantage to promote the climate change lie?

I guess if there isn't any rain they will claim sucess.

Kind of a modern day rain dance only reverse.

Well he's full of it. Because it was used during the olympics according to them.

And you are right dallas... We have the technology for this kind of thing since the early 50s.

And yep, it's probably used to promote the man-made climate change crap, when in fact it could be used to kill hurricanes, ect... But no. Stop rain where there's too much rain... (Georgia) and put more rain elsewhere...California?

The first thing that comes to my mind is: Where do all this chemicals go? and where is all this humidity going?

I agree it could be used in case of emergency (fire - rain) but just for celebrations and a sunny day?

This is insane.
What is going on????

First we have a rocket that went up a few days ago to disburse charged aerosol particles ....then the weird haze and "dust" particles over Australia...and now more particles being pumped into the atmosphere in China?

Are they trying to totally block out the sky?

Are they trying to manipulate some kind of superstituous bible prophecy?

Is this some new tactic to smother us out?

The rocket dispersed 250 pounds of dust above the atmosphere. It created a small cloud that reflected sunlight for a few minutes.

The Australian dust storm is just that, high winds are kicking dust off the ground and blowing it around.

"They" are not trying to block out the sky. "They" are not trying to manipulate a bible prophesy. It is not a tactic to smother us out. The rocket was part of an experiment to learn about what's going on way, way up there. The dust storm is...a dust storm. They happen.

The cloud seeding that China is doing is being done in a lot of places and has been for a long time. If you have enough money, you can hire someone to water your lawn.

please stop spraying nasty things into the air.
its ridiculous.

“The Queensland government says it will explore cloud seeding in a desperate bid to secure more water.

Queensland Premier Peter Beattie said he was honouring an election promise by allocating $7.6 million to a four-year cloud seeding trial in the state's booming south-east corner.”

CSIRO has shown that in Australia cloud seeding is effective only in a limited number of weather conditions. Cloud seeding will never break droughts; cloudless skies will never produce rain. In fact, many types of clouds cannot be successfully seeded. Cloud seeding is most likely to be effective when used on cumulus or stratiform clouds in air forced up over mountains.

Tasmania has supposedly had sucess in cloud seeding, sorry can't find info on that right now.

Be interesting to see how this works out.

Fog dispersal was the very first form of weather modification to be deployed - back in WWII. It's used by most major airports today for obvious reasons. Usually involves heating the air to make the fog break and lift.

Cloud seeding is today big business, especially in the USA. But many remain very sceptical as to how effective it really is. Latest studies suggest it might increase rain fall amounts by around 5%.

In China's case they'll be trying to precipitate out rainbearing clouds before they reach Beijing, and hopefully cause the clouds to break as well - an area of weather mod which I don't think has been studied much in the west? It's only really carried out by the Russians and Chinese in order to ensure a dry, sunny day for special parades etc.

Wouldn't want such techniques to catch on in this country or it may remove our best chances of winning a Test Match
