Artificial Rain In Lahore

Artificial Rain in Lahore: The Punjab government is considering using artificial rain in the provincial capital later this month in an effort to reduce pollution, as Lahore is once again at the top of the global pollution rankings due to smog.

سموگ کی وجہ سے لاہور ایک بار پھر دنیا کی آلودگی کی درجہ بندی میں سرفہرست ہے، پنجاب حکومت نے اس مسئلے پر قابو پانے کی کوشش کے لیے رواں ماہ کے آخر میں صوبائی دارالحکومت میں مصنوعی بارش کے استعمال کے منصوبے پر غور شروع کر دیا ہے۔

مصنوعی بارش، جسے کلاؤڈ سیڈنگ کے نام سے بھی جانا جاتا ہے، موسم میں تبدیلی کی ایک تکنیک ہے جس کا مقصد بارش کو تیز کرنا ہے۔ یہ بادلوں میں مختلف مادوں کو متعارف کروا کر کیا جاتا ہے جو بارش کے قطروں کی تشکیل کو مزید فروغ دیتے ہیں۔

Cloud seeding, another name for artificial rain, is a method of modifying the weather to cause precipitation. This is accomplished by adding various materials to clouds, which further encourage the development of raindrops Lahore’s air quality index (AQI) was recorded at a “hazardous” 470 on Thursday but dropped to 335 on Friday, according IQAir

On Friday, a meeting was presided over by Punjab’s acting environment minister, Bilal Iqbal, in an attempt to come up with a fresh approach to the ongoing pollution problem. A meeting for consultation was convened to discuss the viability of creating artificial rain, as per a statement released by the environment ministry of the province

It was decided that on November 28 or 29, plans should be made about the artificial rain. A working group was formed under the temporary minister’s instruction to oversee the program. He continued by saying that the working group’s assignment was to assess the procedures that would make it easier for planes to be deployed to create artificial rain.

Iqbal further emphasized that successful artificial rain is only possible in clouds. Mansoor Qadir, the interim provincial education minister, who was in attendance on this occasion, stated that the working committee should thoroughly examine every facet of the program and that their final suggestions would be delivered to the interim chief minister for approval.

Iqbal also had a meeting with Zhao Shiren, the Chinese Consul General, and they talked about the smog problem The topic of enlisting the help of Chinese environmental specialists to address Lahore’s smog problem was raised by the acting provincial minister.

He ascribed 70% of the current Lahore haze to local transportation, industry, and dust, and 30% to winds coming from India. Artificial rain, according to Iqbal, is the only temporary fix for the issue “We want to find a permanent solution to this problem and make it easier for the incoming government,” he continued, “but the smog will end by next month.

The general consul of China proposed that an air-purifying tower be built in Lahore. Educational institutions will stay closed on Saturday, which is today.

Action is being taken against smoke-emitting automobiles, polluting factories, and people who burn agricultural leftovers. In related news, Lahore High Court heard motions to remove haze from the city. The provincial government’s attorney briefed the court on the suggested actions outlined under the temporary arrangement, which included closing gyms and eateries early.

Judge Shahid Karim noted that some of these recommendations didn’t appear essential since gyms were closed due to the COVID-19 epidemic. In response, the attorney stated that the suggestions were being examined. The judge pointed out that the officers of the appropriate department had a role in smog just as much as the factories did
