PLAYING GOD? Tens of millions spent on huge project to change the WEATHER

Express – by Sean Martin

China is ploughing more than £22million into shooting salt-and-mineral-filled bullets into the sky in a bid to make it rain.

But Beijing is not alone in its pursuit to play God with the weather, with at least 52 countries, including the US, using weather modification techniques which allows authorities to clear the skies or make it rain.  

Droughts in places such as the the US and China are one of the biggest constraints on their farming industries, which is why scientists are working to eradicate the the prolonged dry seasons.

They will do this by putting chemicals in the sky.

Even in the hottest regions of the world, moisture remains in the skies.

Before it rains, the moisture particles in the air condense and cool on smaller particles like dust which is how clouds are formed.

Once enough of the particles have come together and the clouds get heavier, then it begins to rain.

However, the experts are hoping to speed up this process from the ground.

By ploughing chemicals into the clouds that will lower the temperature of the clouds which will ultimately give more material for the moisture to build on.

They hope that this will speed the process up and rain sooner.

Bart Geerts, a professor of atmospheric science at the University of Wyoming, told Business Insider that although ‘cloud-seeding’ could work, he is not completely optimistic.

Mr Geerts said: “I think the verdict is still out.”

However, he said that “even a 10 per cent increase in rainfall or snowfall may be worth the expense.”

  1. Um, let’s be sure to leave out how the harmful effects and catastrophic results that geoengineering has caused thus far, to the entire planet and it’s every organism.
    Let’s report the complete truth of the subject matter. You know, the part where we are all being murdered daily; globally.

  2. Have Mr. Geerts goto, then contact the base commander at FE Warren AFB in Cheyenne, ask him about that HAARP contraption, and if the recipe for the chemicals his jets spew across our prairies is to bring rain, or just cause tornadoes and send the moisture toward the Great Lakes region.
    Love to hear that conversation! lol
