The United Arab Emirates is creating its own rain using drones that fly into clouds and unleash electrical charges to beat the sweltering 122 degrees Fahrenheit (50 degrees Celsius) heat.
The rain is formed using drone technology that gives clouds an electric shock to 'cajole them' into clumping together and producing precipitation.
The UAE is one of the most arid countries on Earth, and it hopes the technique could help to increase its meagre annual rainfall.
Alright, I never want to hear about droughts or weather ever again. We are Gods now. We can control the weather. A shortage of rain fall? Shut the fuck up, California. Get some of these electric shock drones and stop letting your entire state burn down and let me eat as many almonds and drink as much wine as I want. First thing I did when I read this story was turn the shower on and let it run to get to the right temp while brushing my teeth with the water running. Fresh water does not matter anymore now that we can make it rain whenever we want. Add this to my list of ideas to save the planet.
You fill up a hole in the Sahara desert outside of Egypt and turn the entire thing into a big grassland which takes carbon out of the atmosphere and allows Africa to produce more food and have more wild life.
2) Sump pumps at the bottom of the ocean
3) Gutters at the bottom of glaciers attached to more pumps that bring melted water back to the top of the glacier
All I ever hear about his how glaciers are melting and those melting glaciers are causing sea level rise and how that is really bad. Well has anyone ever thought about capturing that water and bringing it back to the top of the glacier where it will refreeze because the back of the glacier/ice sheet, whathaveyou, is colder? Seems like an easy fix with the right investment.
I am donating all of these solutions to the public good, free of charge. I just want the credit via a Nobel Prize for thinking outside the box and saving the planet. Won't even scream or scold you like that little asshole from sweden. Those four things should solve all of our climate, water, and food crisis that are seemingly getting worse every day. And that is me on science.
