Experts to do cloud seeding to induce rain in drought stricken areas
Efforts to manipulate the weather and induce precipitation have intensified due to the long drought the in most parts of China. Experts have assured the public that releasing chemicals to induce rain will not harm the environment.
Silver iodide is the most commonly used catalyst in inducing clouds to discharge water is considered a hazardous substance and a very toxic pollutant. A professor that specialize in weather intervention say that weather manipulation impact to the environment can be ignored since the quantity of the substance used is not large enough to have any effect on the environment.
Since the 1950′s China have been discharging silver iodide, dry ice and liquefied nitrogen into clouds by aircraft or ground stations in efforts to induce rain during the drought seasons. Dry ice and the liquefied nitrogen have been found to have no effect or ways of endangering the environment.
