Default China Seeks to Control Olympics Weather With AA Guns, Rocket Launchers

China may have to worry about clouds of smog and black soot due to its lax environmental policies and large scale adoption of inefficient partial-combustion obsolete technologies, but one thing it won't have to worry about at the 2008 Beijing Olympics this August is rain that is if everything goes according to plan.

China is leveraging its significant military resources to wage a war against Mother Nature. China plans to deploy 7,113 anti-aircraft (AA) guns and 4,991 rocket launchers around the city, firing a steady barrage of special payloads containing silver iodide and dry ice into cloud cover, whenever it should appear. The Chinese hope that this novel strategy will help make the Olympics rain free and perhaps give it a chance to show off its military prowess.
