New Delhi : China, which has been messing with its neighbors, is now expanding its program challenging nature in a big way. It has announced extensive expansion of the experimental Weather Modification Program. Under this, it will cover an area of more than 5 million square kilometers, which is one and a half times the size of India. It claims that in the next five years, it will not only acquire artificial rain and hail technology in such a large area, but will also be successful in preventing snowfall. While China is calling this program an attempt to overcome a natural disaster, it cannot be trusted that it will not use this technology to harm the neighboring countries.

China has been engaged in the exercise of curbing the weather for a long time. It has done artificial rain before the 2008 Beijing Olympics with the help of cloud seeding technology to get rid of smog and that the rain does not cause disruption during the event. China has been resorting to artificial rain before holding important meetings in Beijing, so that the skies remain clear.

As such, cloud seeding technology for artificial rain is not new, but it has been used for decades. Under this, a small amount of silver iodide is implanted in the clouds. It then condenses around the new element and rains the area as premature rain when it becomes heavy due to moisture.

Between 2012-17, China has spent $ 1.34 billion or Rs 98.81 billion on various weather change programs. Last year, China’s state-run news agency Xinhua reported that due to weather-changing technology, the damage caused by hailstorms in the northern region of Xinjiang has been reduced by 70 percent. This area is important from the point of view of farming.

Apart from China and America, many more countries have invested in cloud seeding technology. China’s extreme enthusiasm towards this alerts countries like India, where farming is largely dependent on the monsoon. The monsoon has also been affected due to climate change and its forecast has become more difficult than before.
