International News: China using massive drones to seed rainclouds in Sichuan


Posted: Friday, August 26, 2022. 10:57 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: China is using 2 huge drones to seed rainclouds in Sichuan in an attempt to end the record-breaking drought, Bloomberg reports.

The drought has had devastating events and disrupted supply chains of global giants like Apple Inc. and Tesla Inc.

On Thursday, the China Meteorological Administration launched drones in northern and southeastern Sichuan and the aircraft will eventually cover an area of 6,000 square kilometers in operations lasting through Monday.

The way seeding works is by dropping an ice-forming agent like silver iodide into a cloud that already contains ample moisture.

Rain droplets gather around the agent, gaining weight until they begin to fall.

The country has a history of using technology to water crop fields, cool blistering cities and make sure skies are clear for events like the Olympics.

In addition, local government have implemented power cuts for industrial plants and households as the region faces searing heat and severe drought.

Meanwhile, other companies like fertilizer manufacturer, Sichuan Lutianhua Co. said it would remain closed.
