Make it Rain

In the words of Fat Joe, “Make it Rain.” The Chinese government has announced plans to induce rain in Beijing in the days before the 2008 Olympics in an effort to clean the air. Scientists will use a process known as cloud-seeding, to clean the air and ensure clear skies. China has been tinkering with artificial rainmaking for decades, and in the past they have used artificial rainmaking in the northern part of China – the part that is plagued by drought.
