Beijing Dusts Clouds To Tempt In First Snow

November 1, 2009

Beijing (ChattahBox) – Meteorologists have began seeding the clouds over Beijing in order to create snow fall, in an attempt to break the current drought that region has been suffering.

Citizens woke up this morning to a great deal of freshly fallen white powder laying over the city, in a surprise snow that came well ahead of the usual winter drifts.

What they didn’t know, and didn’t find out for several hours, was that the clouds had been seeded by 186 doses of silver iodide, in order to prompt them to open up and release the frozen flakes.

“We wont miss any opportunity of artificial precipitation since Beijing is suffering from the lingering drought,” said Zhang Qiang, who headed he operation, said.

They are claiming that 16 tonnes of snow has fallen since Saturday, when they began the process.

It is the opposite of what Moscow recently said they were thinking of doing, where they planned to mist the clouds in order to curtail rain.

    This is freaking ridiculous. These idiots must not care about the consenquences. Not to mention, they didn’t even fix the problem they were trying to fix. Do you all not know of the governments true objective? It’s not to fix the drought I can tell you that!
