China Using Artificial Rain to Clear Dust

I've seen thousands of movies in which mankind attempts to control the weather and unless television has been lying to me all these years, most of us will be dead within a week and the survivors will battle forces of nature beyond our comprehension. I'm stocking up on bottled water.

Beijing will use artificial rainmaking to clear the air after a choking dust storm coated China's capital and beyond with yellow grit, prompting a health warning to keep children indoors, state media said Tuesday.

Wouldn't it be ironic if the artificil rain cause a pretend flash flood?

The huge storm blew dust far beyond China's borders, blanketing South Korea and reaching Tokyo.
We've destroyed our planet. I'm calling out from work today.

The storm, reportedly the worst in at least five years, hit Beijing overnight Sunday, turning the sky yellow and forcing residents to dust off and hose down cars and buildings.

On the positive side though the dust angels, dustmen with carrot noses and corncob pipes and the dustball fights were plenty.
