China has succeeded in literally changing the weather, a new study claims.
As the South China Morning Post reports, researchers say that during the Chinese Communist Party’s centennial celebration over the summer, weather authorities successfully modified the weather above Beijing to clear the sky and reduce pollution for the tens of thousands gathered for a commemorative ceremony in Tiananmen Square.
They did so using cloud seeding technology, a long-studied but controversial process that involves shooting silver iodide particles into the clouds, with the idea of attracting water droplets to modify the weather.
As the world becoming aware of the environment’s brittleness, more diversified and complex ways have been devised to modify it as a weapon of warfare. Now a new class of weapons more disastrous than nuclear warfare is on the horizon. For altering the environment, weather and climate modification technologies, are the methods that may be used to convert climate and weather systems into weapons of war. It refers to Operation Popeye, which aimed to extend the monsoon season in Southeast Asia.
Captain Orville had cautioned that “if an enemy nation solves the problem of weather control and gets into the position of controlling large-scale weather patterns before we can, the effects might be even more devastating than nuclear conflict”. In this article, we have discussed in-depth Weather Modification Technology in Warfare, and how this method of modern warfare can be used to destroy any country economically, Tactically, Strategically, and Covertly.
Climate change can cause dramatic shifts in global temperatures and weather patterns. And while scientists won’t be able to reverse all of the negative impacts of these changes, they are looking for ways to lessen the effects by controlling the weather.

More and more new applications for the improving Artificial Intelligence Models are coming out at an increasing rate. The newest AI models made by Google’s Deepmind took on the challenge on creating the most advanced and accurate weather prediction AI ever made. Deepmind is focused on creating the best, smartest and most intelligent next generation AI in their path to an Artificial General Intelligence.
Predicting when it’s going to rain or how the wind and weather will be in the next days has always been a difficult problem. But this AI that anyone can use will surely change the weather industry and even society. It even allows us to change and control the weather.

We visited one of the longest-running cloud seeding operations in the country to get a full demonstration and walk-through of the equipment that aims to increase the rain we get from the clouds passing above our heads.

This is not a page from a science fiction novel. “Cloud seeding” is a real practice—in fact, it’s been around for decades. It’s used today to boost precipitation in at least eight states across the western U.S. and dozens of countries around the world.
But there is little evidence to show that the process is increasing precipitation.
