China is a major supplier to the entire world and the closure of companies in China will have a direct impact on the global supply chain. Thus, Chongqing Municipal Corporation has several factories that produce automobile and computer parts. But the local government has now ordered production cuts to conserve power, which could affect supplies of many computer and automobile parts worldwide. Along with this, all the factories located in the Sichuan province, which is called the manufacturing center of China, have been temporarily closed. As the Sichuan province experiences scorching heat and people find it difficult to live without air conditioning, the government is forced to supply more electricity to residential areas, affecting factories. The closure of factories in China will directly affect companies such as Volkswagen Technologies, Toyota Motor Corporation, Volkswagen and Tesla battery supplier CATL.

Severe effects of climate change
China’s government scientists have warned that ground temperatures in China are rising faster than the global average and the current heat wave is clearly an effect of global warming, CNN reported. Its effects have raised concerns. In fact, factories were set up keeping in mind all the rules and regulations related to climate change in China and all the focus was put on the development of the country. Millions of trees were cut down and nature was destroyed. The effect of which is beginning to be seen. Earlier this month, China’s National Climate Center said that around 90 million people in the country have been affected by the heat wave since mid-June. It is not only that China is experiencing terrible heat, but climate change is also showing its more terrible effects. While one part of the country is grappling with scorching heat, the other part is inundated by record rainfall.

The most famous Yangtze River has run out of water!
The Yangtze River, one of China’s most important rivers, has now almost dried up. The important Poyang Lake, which provides it with a large amount of water, has now shrunk to a quarter. In fact, on the strength of technology, China tried to change nature according to its will. In many such experiments, China tried to show the world that it can conquer nature.

Scientists are trying to make rain
According to the Hubei Provincial Emergency Management Department, 4.2 million people in China’s Hubei Province are suffering from severe drought. The government is supplying drinking water to one and a half lakh people here daily. With so little water, farming has become almost impossible here. There are cracks in the ground. According to CNN, China’s Yangtze River has almost dried up. Chinese scientists have started efforts to bring water to this largest river in Asia. Chinese scientists are releasing silver iodide rods into the sky to create clouds and bring rain.
China is sending silver iodide sticks
Silver iodide sticks are about the size of a cigarette. These help form ice crystals. This helps increase the moisture in the clouds, which increases the chance of rain. China has been using cloud seeding technology since the 1940s. China hopes that by doing this, it can bring water to Asia’s largest river again. This river in China not only provides water for irrigation of fields, but also generates electricity. But due to the unprecedented heat, the water has dried up, due to which neither the fields are getting water nor electricity is being generated.
