China govt office 'sole purpose is to meddle with the weather'

China's "Beijing Weather Modification Office" has the "sole purpose" of "meddling with the weather." (Popular Science) How? Mostly by seeding clouds. And it works, "sometimes." When it does, it increases precipitation by an estimated 20 percent. But the results aren’t always positive. Occasionally, the efforts spawn snowstorms that cause traffic snarls, flight delays, cancelled classes and other headaches.

Sound crazy? "Twenty-four countries practice some kind of cloud seeding." In Moscow, the mayor has the Russian Air Force seed clouds to "make sure it never rains on his parades (literally)."

Cloud seeding is a GOD Given Gift to man to save man and Nature.Let all countries in the world promote cloud seeding to produce additional precipitation in the form of rain or snow so that you get more water from a third resource in the atmospheric xclouds because you have almost exhausted all your primary water sources in rivers and lakes along with secondary water resources in the ground waters.For more details please click on the Google Search Engine under the heading

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
