Aquiess, a company that claims to have weather modification technology plans to bring an early end to the devastating drought-famine in the Horn of Africa through its ‘Rainaid’ campaign, and is eyeing Qatar’s financial might for funding of the campaign, a top official of the company has said…
Explaining the company’s weather modification technology, (Aquiess Chief Executive Officer David Miles) said their plan is to break the drought by bringing gentle soaking rain to the region (Horn of Africa) well within the next 90 days.
“Our technology was used in 2005 (Project Albatross) in Australia to draw oceanic rains into the Murray Darling Basin, Eastern Australia, which ended the drought there, and I am confident that we can do the same for Africa,” he added.
To further prove the effectiveness of his company’s technology, Miles said, “In 2010, during the Holy Month of Ramandan, we delivered 4 gigalitres of rain in Qatar which is equal to the volume of water supplied in the country for 10 days. And, as a follow-up of this achievement, we again delivered 35 gigalitres of rain to Qatar.”
