Not quite sure if this is the right place to put this

Chinese meteorologists have brought about Beijing's earliest snowfall in a decade, after seeding rain clouds with silver iodide to ease a drought.

BBC Article

With all the talk about HARP, weather manipulation and Earthquakes being triggered.. Its blatant that weather manipulation is going on....this is what we know about but what about what we dont know about....

It wouldnt surprise me bud.
If you like, there are theorys about the gov making tornadoes, tsunami's etc etc

It is like we move on auto-pilot, zombies unaware that with each slice and stab at the fragility of everything around us we move ever closer to unstable, unsustainable and uncertain futures. I would say I hope they know what they are doing, but our great minds of recent have brought us the Nuclear Weapon, the Human Extermination Program and the attack of a celestial brother in service of numbers and statistics.

I think any real reflection on much of this would result in much different and more considered solutions. A finite process, fragile and cyclical, will be thrown into turmoil trying to accommodate a new force manipulating the process. This should be obvious. We cannot handle the responsibility of steward over this new paradigm(which we would have to be) because we cannot currently handle being a steward of the previous processes. It's bewildering the pace at which we self-destruct.

The thing that gets me, is that the common folk have no clue that such things are being done. Try telling them about how the ptb control all types of weather, and they have no clue.

Its nice that these stories get out, but i am sure there are far more advanced ways, lol.

Im amazed at how much of this is just normal.Heres some information about the affect on the environment, wildlife and people...

Impact on environment and health With an NFPA 704 rating of Blue 2, silver iodide can cause temporary incapacitation or possible residual injury (e.g., chloroform) to humans and mammals with intense or continued but not chronic exposure. However, there have been several detailed ecological studies that showed negligible environmental and health impacts.[8][9][10]. The toxicity of silver and silver compounds (from silver iodide) was shown to be of low order in some studies. These findings likely result from the minute amounts of silver generated by cloud seeding, which are 100 times less than industry emissions into the atmosphere in many parts of the world, or individual exposure from tooth fillings[11]. Accumulations in the soil, vegetation, and surface runoff have not been large enough to measure above natural background[12]. A 1995 environmental assessment in the Sierra Nevada of California[13] and a 2004 independent panel of experts (an overview only is presented in the executive summary of the research) in Australia confirmed these earlier findings. Cloud seeding over Kosciuszko National Park - a Biosphere Reserve - is problematic in that several rapid changes of environmental legislation were made to enable the "trial." Environmentalists are concerned about the uptake of elemental silver in a highly sensitive environment affecting the pygmy possum amongst other species as well as recent high level algal blooms in once pristine glacial lakes. The ABC program Earthbeat on 17 July 2004 heard that not every cloud has a silver lining where concerns for the health of the pygmy possums was raised. Research 50 years ago and analysis by the former Snowy Mountains Authority led to the cessation of the cloud seeding program in the 1950s with non-definitive results. Formerly, cloud seeding was rejected in Australia on environmental grounds because of concerns about the protected species, the pygmy possum. Since silver iodide and not elemental silver is the cloud seeding material, the claims of negative environmental impact are disputed by peer-reviewed research as summarized by the international weather modification association.

Cloud seeding can be done both in the air and from ground...

Heres a picture of a ground cloud seeding machine

And a diagram of both air and land seeding

And it dumped so much snow that it caused Beijing airport delays of more than 6 hours .....

That was productive!

Whilst Beijing uses cloud seeding to make it snow, Moscow plans to use the same process to prevent it snowing (or, rather, make all the snow fall before it reaches the city)

Moscow fights snow with air force

They also carry out cloud seeding to make it snow at some ski resorts in the USA - it's quite big business!

Cloud seeding aims to increase Winter Park snowfall

It's not exactly secret stuff - even if there remains some doubts as to how well it really works and how adviseable it all is

Caution urged over cloud seeing
