In anticipation of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, China's Weather Modification Office plans to use a process called cloud-seeding to clean the air, force the rain and ensure clear skies.
This is a controversial technique and its effectiveness is highly debatable; however, with decades of practice under its belt, China is confident in its ability to control the elements and is forging ahead with their artificial rain control methods.
Implications - The Olympic Games offers a prime opportunity for the host country to showcase its technological prowess and economical well-being. Altering the weather is one of the most extreme manifestations of this phenomenon -- to date, controlling the elements has been an impossible dream.
