Have Scientists Discovered How To Create Downpours In The Desert?

Recommended Posts

For centuries people living in the Middle East have dreamed of turning the sandy desert into land fit for growing crops and fresh water on tap.

Now that holy grail is a step closer after scientists employed by the ruler of Abu Dhabi claim to have generated a series of downpours.

Fifty rainstorms were created last year in the state's eastern Al Ain region using technology designed to control the weather.

I wonder how this will screw up the eco system? Are the actually managing this?

Now, not only will neighbouring countries be able to steal water upstream from your rivers, they will be able to steal the water upwind from your skies.

Nice.

Good job we are surrounded by sea.

Some thoughts: Atmospheric flows are like rivers, delivering rain inland. If the rain is "used up" "upstream", less rain for the countries "downstream".

So they spend money 'irrigating' desert areas whilst temperature areas go without rain.

Then they blame it on climate change and hike up taxes.
