China seeds clouds and closes down 12 highways PostFri Feb 20, 2009 3:49 am  Reply with quote

BEIJING (Reuters) - China closed 12 highways around the capital Beijing on Thursday because of heavy snow brought on after seeding clouds with chemicals, state media said on Thursday.

All outbound highways were closed in Hebei, the drought-hit northern province surrounding Beijing, after heavy snow fell on Wednesday night, Xinhua news agency said.

In all, 12 highways, including one linking Beijing and Shenyang, capital of northeastern Liaoning province, were closed.

Hebei got its first heavy snow of this year on Wednesday. The provincial weather bureau said that snow too was "enhanced" by artificial seeding.

"The snow has brought moisture to the soil, which may help end the drought," Guo Yingchun, a senior engineer of the provincial meteorological observatory, was quoted as saying.

She said that 313 cigarette-size sticks of silver iodide were fired into the clouds from Wednesday night to Thursday morning, "a procedure that made the snow a lot heavier."

Hebei forecasters said flurries would continue through Thursday night in the northern part of the province.

Beijing is enduring its longest drought in 38 years, according to weather bureau records.

Talking about being behind the times in regards to weather control......
Being one with nature never felt so good!

Trouble is, cloud seeding doesn't increase the amount of precipitation, it just changes where it falls (seeding the clouds makes it fall sooner than it would have done naturally).

So, Beijing gets snow/rain to break the drought ..... and somewhere else in China the drought gets worse.

Worrying that the USA and now Australia are increasingly doing the same.
