Floods in a desert! How’s that possible? 

Cloud seeding is a technique that’s been used across countries to artificially create rain. Similarly, UAE too sought to look for alternatives to bring rain to the deserted humid lands of the Emirates. By creating an environmentally friendly technique, the UAE government has been using the cloud seeding technique since 2002. 

While many have come to believe that cloud seeding is the reason for the extreme rains in Dubai, it was still an attempt to provide the nation with the gift of occasional rainfall. 

Having said that, the actual cause for the rainfall still remains unknown 😶‍🌫️ Whether it’s the changing climate or cloud seeding, we are yet to find out!
