Watch: China Is Engineering The Biggest Project Yet To Force Rainfall

Equipped with new military weather-altering technology, China is embarking on its biggest rain-making project yet. The country plans to build tens of thousands of combustion chambers on steep Tibetan mountainsides – The chambers would burn a solid fuel, which would result in a spray of silver iodide billowing towards the sky.

The particles would provide something for passing water vapor to condense around, forming clouds. And the clouds would bring the rain. A single cloud-seeding chamber could create a strip of clouds covering a five-kilometer area. The Tibetan plateau was chosen for its massive impact on water supply. The Tibetan plateau is vital to the water supply for much of China and a large swath of Asia.

Its glaciers and reservoirs feed major rivers that flow through China, India, Nepal, and other countries. The plan, announced this month, is intended to force rainfall and snow over 1.6 million square kilometers (620,000 square miles)—an area roughly three times the size of Spain
