China’s Ministry of Finance recently announced that it has allocated 199 million yuan ($29.8 million) to be spent on cloud seeding weather modification projects being implemented throughout the country.
The Chinese government is hoping that the cloud seeding operations will ease drought conditions and lessen the impact of weather-related disasters, which claim hundreds of lives each year.
Cloud seeding technology was developed in the United States during the late 1940s, and involves the use of chemicals, such as silver iodide crystals, which are dispersed in the air to create rainfall.
When cloud seeding chemicals are introduced into the atmosphere, they cause raindrops within a cloud to form more quickly, making rain fall sooner than it normally would.
The Chinese plan involves the use of aircraft, guns and rockets to fire salt-and-mineral “bullets” into the sky to stimulate rainfall in drought-stricken regions. The Ministry of Finance hopes to create an extra 60 billion cubic meters of rain each year by 2020 through the use of the technology.
At least 52 countries currently pursuing weather modification programs
China is not the only country currently implementing weather modification projects.
