I find china's weather modification much more disturbing than any of the fake news dooms day climate predictions.
A few times a year wouldn't worry me, trying to conjure a rain storm for a drought area, break up a flooding rain storm, clear the sky's so a harvest doesn't rot in the wet fields. But doing it all the time, the only logical out come is disaster.

What would happen if we set off a Mother of all bombs to disrupt the eyewall of a hurricane somewhat before landfall?

The energy is not in (or inside) the eyewall, it's all around it.

The rear of the eyewall of Maria fell apart at landfall and spared FtMeyers and points inland what would have been much worse flooding. And, hurricanes feed on the extreme low pressure in the eye and temp differential between the warm water and cooler high altitude. Adding heat and pressure part way up the eyewall would also tend to weaken the heat engine.
.
I think we should try it sometime on a hurricane that is remote from any landfall to see what would happen. What do we have to lose. About a 1/2 $trillion in damages if it works.

At $2500/lb I think that bottled water would be cheaper

And why would China be needing more water, I wonder? Could it be that the Himalayan glaciers are melting more quickly now, and the six major rivers they feed are in question? Or, maybe it is shifting weather patterns, because of the weakened and wobbly polar vortex, due to melting Arctic ice? Or, it might be that the 4-5% increase of evaporation, due to warmer temperatures are sapping water supplies? Or possibly it is because rain storms are too intense for the water to be absorbed, if the rain had been spread out over a period of time?

Or maybe scientists are just making it all up - yeah, THAT'S it!

Geo-engineering in general reminds me of the story of the wise King Canute.

China wants more water because they know that during solar minimum they get sever dough conditions.
During a grand solar minimum a billion people may not get enough food or water for decades.
If a billion people rise up against the commie China gov the gov will be squashed like a moist rice grain.

That would require freedom of thought and the ability to question authority, which China has thoroughly controlled. Only 15% of Beijing students even recognize the famous "tank man" photo, and probably even less know of the Tiananmen massacre.

Quote:
Keep this number in mind the next time you hear about Chinese students' vaunted performance on international standardized tests. Only 15 out of 100 seem to know about the most important event in the last quarter-century of their country's history. It would be sort of as if only 15 out of 100 Harvard university students were able to recognize an iconic photo of the September 11 attacks, which killed about as many people in New York as the Tiananmen massacre killed in Beijing.
