The South China Morning Post has recently reported recent technological initiatives. The China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation intends to build large weather altering machines in Tibet. The intention of this project is to generate more rainwater in the area that can be collected. This is not innovative technology, however it will be the largest project of its kind. There are currently 500 units already deployed in Tibet and Xinjiang, the size of the area for this project will be 1.6 million square kilometers (620,000 square miles) once completed. There is a lot of criticism towards the project about how it might not generate rainfall in the designated area. China has already launched the “Tianhe” (Sky River) project despite negative opinions, and the results are sure to be intriguing.
Recently, Xi Jinping was appointed as a president of China with no term limits. Also, the Chinese Communist Party appointed a new vice president. This decision will set the course for China’s political environment over the next few decades. I’m interesting in following along with other decisions that the Chinese Communist Party will make in the future. Some people believe this decision is good, because they think it will give Xi Jinping enough time to fix any issues with the current Chinese economic growth model. Others believe that this decision is not good, and will mean that it will take longer for China to become more liberal.
