China is building a "rain factory" the size of three of Spain

Artificial rain — that will help China to moisten the area at three in Spain. Anyway that's the latest draft of China's manipulation of the weather. The system will include a burner of solid fuel, drones, planes, artillery and a network of meteorological probes that will study the vast expanse of the Indian ocean. The goal is to create a distributed system that can fight climate change and increase rainfall in the region of ten billion cubic meters, or approximately 7% of annual consumption of water in China.

Combating global warming requires technologies that we don't have

22 April 2016, the Conference on climate in Paris was signed Paris agreement which regulates measures to reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from 2020. To date, the Paris agreement — the main hope of mankind to stop the warming before we reach the "point of no return" in the form of an irreversible process, which supports itself (warming will cause the melting of glaciers and permafrost thawing, which will increase the amount of CO emissionsTwo will increase the greenhouse effect, there will be further warming, and so on).

Projections for global warming become more accurate

If "one" is the loneliest number, two is the worst. Mankind must not allow the global temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius, says the Paris climate agreement. Intersection of this line will mean disaster. A particular problem in the study of climate uncertainty. We can't predict when that will happen, because in this massive and complicated system of thousands of variables. But that may change. Recently in the journal Nature published an article in which researchers said they were able to reduce the uncertainty of the key metrics of climate change on 60%, narrowing the range of possible warming from 3 to 1.2 degrees Celsius. In addition, the new data paint a very scary picture of the climate crisis. You can even call it cautiously optimistic.
