China CPP is working on the most powerful weapon A weather Manipulation controller…
IT’s the one thing we can do little about except put on some sunglasses when it’s sunny and grab an umbrella when it’s wet. But China is not taking the weather lying down and instead is expanding a “weather-modification programme”.
What is it?
Essentially it’s there in the title – a project to control the weather, which creates artificial rain and snow.
It’s based on “cloud seeding”?
The practice of “cloud seeding” was discovered in the United States in the 1940s by a chemist working for General Electric. China then launched its own similar initiative in the 1960s and dozens of countries have programmes on the go.
What is it exactly?
It’s the manufacturing of artificial rain and snow by spraying chemicals – like silver iodide or liquid nitrogen – into clouds to make water droplets condense and fall as rain or snow.
China’s project is the largest?
Thought to employ around 35,000 people, China’s State Council has announced that it is expanding the project fivefold to be able to cover half the vast country in artificial rain and snow by 2025. The State Council said the project will soon cover 2.1 million square miles – about 56% of China’s entire surface area.
What’s the purpose?
“Cloud seeding” aims to try and create good weather conditions for a variety of reasons, ranging from aiding crops or to preventing natural disasters. The State Council said that thanks to “breakthroughs in fundamental research”, the project will be at a “worldwide advanced level” by 2035 and be able to help alleviate “disasters such as drought and hail” and facilitate emergency responses “to forest or grassland fires”.
It will focus on certain areas?
The State Council said weather modification will “intensify” in areas of mitigating drought, hail, fires and high temperatures, while also assisting agricultural production and preserving ecologically protected areas.
When did China’s effort bear fruit?
Shortly before the 2008 Olympics, China wanted clear skies for the major event and launched a cloud seeding project which it said was successful in forcing anticipated rains to fall in advance. Between 2012 and 2017, it spent more than $1.34 billion on boosting modification efforts, ultimately seeing it able to fire bullets filled with salt and minerals into the sky.
It’s been a success so far?
In January last year, Chinese state media said cloud seeding had prevented crops in the western region of Xinjiang from around 70% of hail damage.
It’s not all sunshine and rainbows?
The announcement from China has intensified concerns over the unregulated nature of weather modification at present. Dhanasree Jayaram, a climate expert at the Manipal Academy of Higher Education in Karnataka, India, said: “Without regulation, one country’s efforts could affect other countries.”
The proposed expansion is on such a huge scale, for example, it could affect regional weather patterns and amid tensions with neighbouring India, “weather warfare” is also a concern.
It amounts to the use of weather modification techniques like cloud seeding for military purposes and is not a new concept – Operation Popeye was a highly-classified military cloud-seeding effort conducted by the US Air Force during the Vietnam War which aimed to lengthen monsoon season over targeted areas of the Ho Chi Minh Trail in a bid to disrupt North Vietnamese military supplies.
Hong Kong(CNN) China this week revealed plans to drastically expand an experimental weather modification program to cover an area of over 5.5 million square kilometers (2.1 million square miles) — more than 1.5 times the total size of India.
According to a statement from the State Council, China will have a “developed weather modification system” by 2025, thanks to breakthroughs in fundamental research and key technologies, as well as improvements in “comprehensive prevention against safety risks.”

China Is Rolling Out an Enormous “Weather Modification” System, CNN reports.
In the past, China has used its weather modification tech to seed clouds well in advance of major events like the 2008 Olympics and political meetings so the events themselves happen under clear skies, CNN reports.
But this planned expansion of the system means that other countries may be subject to its meteorological whims — seeding international conflict in addition to clouds.
Has China Mastered Weather Modification? Should We Worry?
Using rockets and pickup trucks, Chinese officials are seeding clouds and bringing the rain. But do they have other uses in mind?
Last month, 16 “artificial rain enhancement rockets” were launched off the back of a pickup truck 300 miles south of Beijing. The operation, ordered up by the Juye County Meteorological Bureau in response to a local drought, was reportedly a success. Over the next 24 hours, the county received more than two inches of rain that, according to local officials, alleviated the drought, lowered the risk of forest fires and improved air quality.
It sounds like something out of a cartoon. But for decades, China has been home to one of the world’s most advanced weather-modification programs. Generally, its goals have been modest: more rain in arid places, less field-destroying hail and sunny days for big national events. But that modesty is starting to give way. Earlier this month, China announced plans to expand its rainmaking capabilities to cover nearly 60% of the country by 2025. Details are sketchy, but fears are rising about the potential military uses of these capabilities, and their effects on an already changing climate. For China, and the world, these concerns need to be addressed soon.
Humans have dreamed of controlling the weather for millennia. But it wasn’t until 1946 that scientists at General Electric Co. discovered that dry ice can create precipitation when it interacts with clouds under certain conditions. By 1953, roughly 10% of the land area of the U.S. had been targeted for cloud seeding. Twelve years later, the government was spending millions of dollars on weather-modification research each year, and 15 other companies had started cloud-seeding operations in 23 states.
It wasn’t just about rainfall, however. During the Vietnam War, the U.S. military weaponized cloud seeding to inhibit enemy troop movements and reduce the effectiveness of anti-aircraft attacks, among other things. These uses so alarmed policy makers that they began seeking an international agreement to end “environmental warfare.” In 1978, the Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification went into force.
Although China ratified the treaty in 2005, its interest in controlling the weather and the environment didn’t wane. Meteorological calamities such as hail and flooding account for more than 70% of the country’s annual disaster-related damage. Because of that ongoing toll, the government has staked its legitimacy in part on how well it responds to such incidents. In recent decades, as the country has grown wealthier, Earth-altering projects such as the Three Gorges Dam have become a favored solution… Reading between the lines and more clouds seeding what!!!
