Niger to use technology to alleviate drought

Niamey, Aug 29 (Prensa Latina) Niger will resort to injecting chemicals into the clouds to alleviate the brutal drought causing a food crisis in the country, the fourth poorest on the planet, official media revealed.

This will be the second time in less than a month that the government has used the induced rain technique of injecting a mixture of silver, baking soda and acetone into clouds; the first time took place early this month in the west of the country, including areas of the capital.

The procedure, in coordination with an aviation company in Mali, will continue until the beginning of next September when the rainy season usually begins.
