China is already doing plenty of things to the atmosphere above it, but most changes are byproducts of the country's marathon industrial revolution. Now China plans to make some purposeful atmospheric changes - namely making it rain, for the purpose of growing crops. China is starting four regional programs to artificially increase precipitation across the country by 10 per cent before 2015, under a newly released 12th Five-Year Plan (2011-2015), according to the state-run China Daily. "Weather intervention" could bring an additional 230 billion cubic meters of precipitation per year - that's on top of the 50 billion China already artificially creates annually, China Daily says.

"Because clouds are boundless, weather control is boundless. The five regional weather control programs will coordinate the ground resources, such as the cloud seeding rockets and planes, across provinces to increase potential rain or snow," said Zheng Jiangping

Thank you OP for the weather modification update. Seems like maybe China, like Thailand, is a bit more up front with what they are doing. I think it's because they have a captive audience, unlike western countries, an audience that is not allowed to object. So just tell the populace what it is and that's that.
