China – which hasn’t had much luck lately controlling the weather – plans to, ahem, halt rain during the Beijing Olympics. Charged with this awesome task is China’s elite bureau of weather modification:
The bureau of weather modification was established in the 1980s and is now believed to be the largest in the world. It has a reserve army of 37,000 people—most of them sort of weekend warriors who are called to duty during unusual droughts. The bureau has 30 aircraft, 4,000 rocket launchers and 7,000 antiaircraft guns …
This bureau is the Chuck Norris of climate change! Rain doesn’t stand a chance against all those rocket launchers.
