China manipulates, controls, and fabricates nearly everything at this point, including the weather. It’s dangerous for a dictatorship to control natural resources, despite the claimed benefits of what can be come through doing so. The Chinese Communist Party having power over the weather for about half of their country, is just another reason why the CCP shouldn’t have any power in America. A government that can control the weather, is a government that that’s far too big.

China is massively expanding its weather-control project, and is aiming to be able to cover half the country in artificial rain and snow by 2025, the government said Tuesday.
The practice of “cloud seeding” was discovered in the US in 1946 by a chemist working for General Electric. China launched its own similar program in the 1960s.
Dozens of other countries — including the US — also have such programs, but Beijing has the world’s largest, employing around 35,000 people, The Guardian reported.
In a statement, China’s State Council said that the country’s cloud seeing project will expand fivefold to cover an area of 2.1 million square miles and be completed by 2025. (China encompasses 3.7 million square miles, meaning the project could cover 56% of the country’s surface area.)
