Default The UAE wants to build a man-made mountain to increase rainfall

The United Arab Emirates wants to make it rain—literally—and it has an ambitious plan to do that: build a mountain.
Quote:
Among other approaches that the UAE is considering to increase rainfall, the country has given $400,000 to the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), a U.S.-based research institute sponsored by the National Science Foundation, to study how building a man-made mountain could affect the weather.While the idea sounds a bit like science fiction, it’s based on a very real meteorological concept called “orographic precipitation.”
Quote:
When moist air rises up one side of a mountain, it cools and forms clouds. Those clouds then produce precipitation, leading to rainfall on the side of the mountain facing the wind. (The area on the other side of the mountain—called the “rain shadow”—receives very little rain as dry air descends.)
like where I live as opposed to portland and seattle

This whole @benshapiro offering to debate @Ocasio2018 issue is ridiculous and shows the bias of the media in favor of the right-wing. Fine, I offer the same $10,000 to debate @tedcruz. Not joking. Guaranteed it gets no coverage. Why won't the bumbling coward Ted Cruz debate me?!
