China to use geoengineering to combat historic drought 中国人工降雨应对史上最严重旱灾| DW News 德国之声新闻台

China is suffering a severe water shortage after its hottest and driest summer since the government began recording rainfall 61 years ago. Authorities try to protect this year’s harvest from intense drought by using chemicals to generate rain and people are warned to save ‘every unit of water’ as a severe drought continues.

中国今年遭遇的旱灾是有气象记录以来的61年最严重的一次。农业的收获季节将至,但是干旱还未缓解,中国政府相关部门采取人工降雨的方式缓解旱灾,此外呼吁大家节约用水。
