China is planning the largest chemtrail experiment, changing the weather in an area three times the size of Spain. In an ambitious geoengineering experiment, the Chinese authorities plan to create artificial precipitation over an area of 1.6 million square meters. km (620,000 sq. miles).
The plan is an implementation of a project called Tianhe or Heavenly River, developed by researchers in 2016 at China's Tsinghua University. In theory, "Tianhe" will be able on a regular basis to create additional rain up to a huge area: 1.6 million square kilometers - more than the whole of Alaska and three times more than Spain.
According to the South China Morning Post, if the project, starting in March this year, succeeds, Tianhe could generate precipitation equivalent to about 7 percent of China's annual water consumption.
“Changing the weather in Tibet is a new and important approach to solving the problem of water scarcity in China. Tianhe will make an important contribution not only to China's development and global prosperity, but also to the well-being of all mankind,”said Lei Fanpei, President of China's State Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, which is developing the project.
While it sounds like something out of science fiction, Tianhe is a new form of weather modification called cloud seeding. Similar projects have been worked on in the United States and Russia for decades, but only China has been able to fully invest in such a large-scale concept.
In the Chinese Tibetan project, special burning chambers will release particles of silver iodide that will be carried into the atmosphere by the wind, where they are expected to form vaporous clouds capable of bringing rain and snow.
“At the moment, more than 500 special fire chambers have been deployed in Tibet, Xinjiang and other areas for the experiment. But already the first results, which we researched and evaluated, are very promising,”one of the project developers says in an interview.
This technology was originally developed as part of a weather change program being developed by the Chinese military. Some of these technologies can be used for attack, setting up natural disasters on the enemy's territory - floods, droughts and tornadoes, designed to weaken enemies in the event of a strong conflict. However, "Tianhe", like a number of similar projects, was considered as a measure of protection against climate weapons.
Technically, work on it began more than ten years ago, and at the same time the military faced the first problem - a lack of oxygen in mountainous areas. Combined with a rather aggressive mountain environment (low temperature, snow, strong wind), the flame in the burners was quickly extinguished and required constant personnel to maintain it. And only a new project of fire chambers can operate almost in a vacuum, requiring no intervention and maintenance for many months.
While advertising their new climate modification project, Chinese engineers are actively talking about “a great contribution to the cause of all mankind,” but climatologists, and especially China's neighbors, do not share Chinese optimism. Specifically, Janos Paztor of C2G2 (Carnegie Climate Geoengineering Governance Initiative) explains:
“This weather modification does not cause additional rain per se. Rain is the condensation of water that has already entered the atmosphere, having evaporated in certain places. But the Chinese decided to spill this water exclusively at home. That is, this rain will no longer fall anywhere else, as a result of which ecosystems will perish in an area comparable to the scale of the project."
Thus, the plan, to put it mildly, controversial and even fraught with a serious regional conflict, since it is one thing when chemical routes are sprayed with the help of aircraft, causing artificial rain over a small region, but it is completely different if a drought begins in India, Pakistan or Siberia. the size of Alaska.
It is still unknown when the project will officially work in full force and will be finally completed, but in view of its controversy, we do not even doubt that the world will still hear about this project.
