Climate engineering program refers to large-scale manipulation of Earth’s climate intended to counteract human-caused climate change, also describes a diverse of modern technologies for intentionally manipulating the global climate, in order to moderate or forestall the effects of climate change. As we know, climate engineering programs have the ability to generate precipitation, fog, and storms on earth or to modify space weather. Hence, the productions of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of environmental-military high technologies. Today’s news show that discussions of climate engineering has grown considerably amongst scientists specially in engineering physics and environmental engineering groups who engaged in addressing climate change. In this article author tries to introduce readers with hi-tech climate engineering methods and equipment, which could be useful in managing climate change crisis, and could go one step further in attempting to reduce drought and flood seasons, decrease pollution and dust crisis in big cities, increase precipitation and rainfall in arid and semi-arid areas in the World.
