There are many ongoing applications of cloud seeding today, but the biggest and most controversial applications of cloud seeding are being done all over parts of china. In the 2008 Beijing Olympic games, the Chinese government used cloud seeding to intercept a large rain front approaching the city, causing the cloud to release all of its moisture before entering the city. Thus creating a warm sunny pleasant experience for the Olympic event. The only problem is that they actually caused a massive record beating snow fall in the outskirts of the city, causing confusion and a halt of the city's transportation system.

There is major controversy on the subject of cloud seeding, many people believe that it is extremely damaging to the naturally balanced Eco system. Other theroys state that the affected cloud seeding areas are being "over watered" causing delicate crops to die out from over moisturized soil. There are also conspiracy theory's that suggest that china is "stealing rain" from there neighboring countrys thus forcing those countrys to buy "well watered and healthy" crops from the Chinese government.
