Technology created 50 rainstorms in Abu Dhabi's Al Ain #Abudhabi
"Fifty rainstorms were created ... in the state's eastern Al Ain region using technology designed to control the weather."
"They have been using giant ionisers, shaped like stripped down lampshades on steel poles, to generate fields of negatively charged particles."
"the founder of the Swiss company in charge of the project, Metro Systems International, boasted of success.
Helmut Fluhrer said: 'We have achieved a number of rainfalls.'
It is believed to be the first time the system has produced rain from clear skies"
"Building an ionising system is about £7 million while a desalination plant would be £850 million and costs a lot more to run."
