  49. 49. Adjust the Cause of the Extreme Natural Event The heavy snowfalls over Beijing have principally been induced by meteorological offices to try to mitigate the most severe drought to grip northern China in nearly half a century. City officials have been blasting chemicals into clouds over northern China to create the first precipitation in more than 100 days. The first flurries fell on the capital on Tuesday. By Tuesday, more than 500 cigarette-sized sticks of silver iodide had been seeded into clouds above Beijing from 28 rocket-launch bases around the city, said the Beijing Weather Modification Command Centre.

Modify the Extreme Natural Event Dr David Dennis, the chief executive of Performance Plants Incorporated in Kingston, Ontario, said varieties of drought-tolerant oilseed rape and maize were already being tested in field trials in the US. He claimed the new varieties can increase yield by 40% when the plants are most water-stressed.

Try the following: • Discourage pool users from "bombing" and continually getting out and jumping back into the pool. • Drip dry on the top step so that water goes back into the pool. • If you need to top up, get those who use the pool to top up the water level with a bucket so they're conscious of the amount of water they've used.
