Qatar: the heat is so extreme that they install air conditioners outdoors and plan artificial rain clouds

Qatar is in the midst of a heat crisis like no other. And it seems that life is increasingly difficult to lead in that country.

That's because the temperature has risen so high that residents can no longer bear living without air conditioning. Not only indoors, it is also necessary to use it outdoors.

Air conditioners outdoors and stadiums

In this place the climate is exaggeratedly hot and quite humid throughout the year. Qatar has 9 months of summer and 3 of endless struggle to survive.

But these air conditioning systems create a vicious cycle. To produce cold air, fossil fuels are used that emit greenhouse gases, which in turn are causing it to get hotter and hotter.

The Khalifa Stadium is already a sample of the innovation and technology that Qatar boasts, it will be the first open-air stadium fully equipped with air conditioning to receive the athletes of the 2022 World Cup.

As for outdoor malls, markets or even sidewalks, more and more cooling systems are also being installed.

Artificial clouds

Undoubtedly an invention that marks a before and after in the history of universal technology. These are mechanical clouds made of carbon that will fly over cities.

Helium gas will be injected inside them so that they float, and the solar energy will activate their motors. This is where the magic begins, the clouds are suspended in the air like a helicopter and are controlled by remote control. They block the sun's rays, lowering the temperature. In addition, according to the path of the sun, they will change their position.

Qatar uses 60% of its electricity to cool itself and, according to the World Bank, is the country with the highest emissions per capita.
