    China's 'Sky River' Will Be The Biggest Artificial Rain Experiment Ever

    China is building the foundations of what will become the largest artificial rain experiment in history, in an attempt to induce extra rainfall over the Tibetan Plateau.

    The project will see tens of thousands of fuel-burning chambers installed across the Tibetan mountains, with a view to boosting rainfall in the region by up to 10 billion cubic metres annually, according to reports.


    The plan, which is an extension of a project called Tianhe or 'Sky River' developed by researchers in 2016 at China's Tsinghua university, is hoped to bring extra rain to a massive area spanning some 1.6 million square kilometres (almost 620,000 square miles).

    For a bit of context, that's larger than Alaska, and about three times the size of Spain, according to the South China Morning Post (SCMP), and this immense scope means the extra rainfall expected will also be voluminous if the plan succeeds, equivalent to roughly 7 percent of China's annual water consumption.

    In the Tibetan project, the burning chambers will produce silver iodide particles that will be carried into the atmosphere by the wind, where they are expected to seed moisture clouds capable of producing rain and snow.

    "[So far,] more than 500 burners have been deployed on alpine slopes in Tibet, Xinjiang, and other areas for experimental use," one researcher working on the project told SCMP.

    "The data we have collected show very promising results."

    But not everybody is convinced of China's plans of creating artificial rainfall over such a wide area, especially because there's still a lot we don't know about how cloud seeding – which is usually initiated by more localised chemical agents released into the atmosphere by planes – affects broader weather patterns.

    "Such weather modification does not 'produce' rain as such," geoengineering researcher Janos Pasztor from the Carnegie Climate Geoengineering Governance Initiative (C2G2) told Gizmodo.

    "Rather, it makes rain happen somewhere, which means that it will not happen somewhere else. This immediately means that ecosystems and people living somewhere else where it would have rained will no longer get this rain."

    If that's correct, the potential effects of China's Sky River could mean whole cloud systems covering an area the size of Alaska might be diverted to boost rainfall over the Tibetan Plateau.

    It's not known when the project will be completed, but given how huge, and hugely controversial, this plan could become, we doubt we've heard the last of this.

    Stuff like this will probably spark wars in the future.

    Cloud seeding, isn`t that what chemtrails are supposedly?

    Cloud seeding is whats been admitted to and has been going on for decades.

    Chemtrails are what the paranoiacs think are intentionally poisoning society.

    What about Flouride in the water supplies ? That's a poison. Take one teaspoon full of that and your toast.

    Yes it is.......its all about dose and acceptable concentrations. Remember to much water can kill you as well.

    But water isn't classified as a poison...:Whistle:

    I never said it was......I said it was based on dose and acceptable concentrations.

    So do you take vitamins?.....I once saw 7 priority pollutant metals in the vitamin isle.

    Things like selenium are toxic in higher doses.....but beneficial in small amounts.

    Selenium - Wikipedia

    I may have missed it but I didn't see the word toxic in here.

    Fluoride - Wikipedia

    Are they using fluorides in their cloud seeding?

    Well they will never classify it as a toxin because it would undermine their water fluoridation efforts...

    Yes I take vitamins but only 2 in particular which for instance vitamin C can be eaten at any doses and it's non toxic, the body just urinates out what it doesn't need...I've seen some metals too in the vitamin isle that some of the conspiracy theorists complain about in alleged chemtrails lol...

    I didn't know we were talking about chemtrails in this thread.......but yes barium and aluminum are both available in vitamin form. The chemtrail nutcases really need to do some research.

    The label on the fluoridation chemicals do indicate a moderate health hazard......but there is no need to classify it as a a toxin. There are some areas where naturally occurring fluoride is above drinking water standards to the point of causing health hazards. In southernmost Illinois you'd be better off with your tap water being fluoridated than drinking the groundwater.

    It's collectively called "geoengineering".

    “Water fluoridation can improve overall oral health for both children and adults, and studies show water fluoridation reduces tooth decay by about 25 percent over a person’s lifetime," - some Illinois official about their levels in water

    You know what else can reduce decay? Fluoride toothpaste. It's more efficient because topical. That's what I use. So then why I need it in water for if I already have it?
    1. Unnecessary
    2. Supposedly comes with other unwanted side effects
    3. Has been argued unconstitutional
    Then why the f is it in there really? Some chemical corporation had extra toxins to dispose of, *aha, what if we can reuse in drinking water!!!* "Great idea Larry - we save money on not having to dispose of the toxins required by law, and instead sell it to local government in the name of cavity reduction!!!!" You get a raise Larry."

    I wouldn`t put it past Aliens being the reason behind earth`s geoengineering, didn`t the guy that came back from the future with the picture of a city underwater say they invade/immigrate to our planet in 2018. LOL

    Water fluoridation would still likely help oral health in Illinois as well.......but then that wasn't my point.

    Since that is why the program was initiated in the 1950s. In some places it still might be beneficial.....but for the most part its outdated because people are better with oral health these days.

    Its the anti-fluoride chuckleheads that think it is made from a toxic by-product that really need to do some reading.

    Ok, and it's the pro-fluoride chuckleheads who omit other side effects that negate the limited positive effect that really need to do some reading.
