Nuclear War declared on UAE weather

"I've been in the Emirates for over a decade now, and I've noticed that it's always about this time of year that people start falling out with each other," remarks Purvis, a veteran hack. "The summer is starting to arrive, and it affects people's tempers."

But perhaps not this summer. In what must be the most bizarre experiment since camel-milk chocolate and date "champagne", UAE scientists are detonating hydrogen bombs to create rainfall. They also claim to have brought temperatures down below the highs forecast:

ABU DHABI — For the first time in the history of the region, artificial rain was experimented in the UAE last week. Using the latest technology, the rainmaking effort - which continued for four days - brought moderate rain, mainly in the Abu Dhabi emirate and the Northern Emirates, an official source said. The artificial rainfall helped alleviate the dry spells that have lasted for days.

The technique is apparently eco-friendly, and doesn't require any uranium or plutonium, just a bit of electricity to split water molecules. The idea of a turning dessicated datepalms into lush rainforest is wonderful. But will the camels like it?

I am sure this will help Dubai tourism as well. I can not imagine anyone who is eager to hop-around the country with 50 degrees temperature. Cooling down the land with rain will help a bit, don`t you think?

Any unnatural creation has its own consequences. Weather has no exceptions. The sudden change(man made) in weather may bring its own effects on health of mankind, forget about camels!
