MANILA, Philippines—United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) candidate for Senator Jack Enrile on Tuesday urged the Department of Agriculture (DA) to be prepared to conduct cloud seeding operations in selected agricultural areas of the country, particularly those reeling from the unusually severe dry spell.

Cloud seeding is a common method of inducing rain by spreading either dry ice or silver iodide aerosols on clouds to stimulate precipitation process and form rain.

“The Department of Agriculture (DA) should make sure that farmers and other agriculture stakeholders are not adversely affected by the dry spell sweeping through our country.

“Otherwise, they might need to identify specific agricultural areas where cloud seeding could be considered,” Enrile said.

“Although the summer heat has already scorched some regions, it has not gotten to the point where farmers are beginning to panic,” Enrile added.

“Nonetheless, the government should be ready with appropriate measures like cloud seeding to ensure that food production remains on target,” Enrile stressed that this early, other emergency measures should be considered by the DA.

    nasasa-loob na tayo ng attention span ng majority of voters sa bayan.

    magagaling ang consultants and researchers.

    How much he has to pay to publish this brainless statement? COMELEC should check this out.

    • $42337655

      madaming pera itong pambayad; sunod-sunod ang write up, almost daily na.

      kahit daily at obvious at ordinary ideas, nilalagay sa internet. lol

      what’s next, “the esteros of old Manila should be cleaned by so and so Department of….”

  • SMEjhong

    Inquirer..wag naman kayong pumayag gamitin sa walang kwentang paid ads na katulad nito (andun na tayo – kelangan nyo ring kumita) por dios por santo! .. lagyan nyo naman ng konting laman ito.. ang mga walang alam ay lalong magmumukhang walang alam pagkabasa sa artikulong ito…“Although the summer heat has already scorched some regions, it has not gotten to the point where farmers are beginning to panic,” Enrile added – pustahan pa..di niya alam kung anong mga regions to’..bagsak to sa geography.. tangna’

  • bbguevara

    Mukha ngang maraming reporter ng PDI ay nasa payroll ni Enrile for this election. Halos araw -araw may article tungkol kay Enrile, samantalang ang marini ay wala sa isang buwan. Mr Publisher and Ms Editor, your attention please.

  • w33k3nd3r

    Jack Enrile is a murderer.

    • komentero

      WOW ha? this article is about cloud seeding, tapos ang sinasabi mo murderer? magbasa ka naman, hatalang wala kang masabi.

  • Pidyong

    Media entities such as PDI should never allowed this, the Enrile clan has no way been concern with PHL agriculture as they have been the backdoor of illegal import of agri products entry to the country.

  • UrHONOR

    MAGALING naman pala itong si Jack d’ whacker….maraming na-iisip na mga projects para sa sambayanan…..isda, trabaho, pagsasaka, at ngayon naman ay ang papa-ulan. Malamang ang susunod na palalabasin sa media ay yong project nyang pakaka-kapon ang mga pusang walang-silbi at maiingay sa gabi. Isa pang magandang project nya ay yong ipagpatuloy nya yong gustong gawin ng dating presidential candidate na si Racuyal…. ipapa-aircon ang buong Piipinas para parating malamig na sa bayan. Tapos, ipagbabawal nya ang pagpasok ng mga bagyo sa Piipinas para wala ng baha. :)

      wala pa yung mga bayaran at nakikinabang at makikinabang kay Jack.

      late ang dating, dapat bawasan ang bayad sa kanila; sleeping on the job, too much cholesterol in their good food.

      • marionics

        hahaha napansin mo din yung mga yun ha? oo nga, pero dun ko lang sila nakikita madalas sa gmanews forum. sabi ko nga sa kanila huwag sila doon at walang tao doon. dito kako sila sa inquirer magkalat ng putaktihin sila hahaha

      • $42337655

        lol, pare itaguyod mo ang mabuting pagsuporta mo sa ikabubuti ng kawawa nating bayan

        kailangan ang manungkulan ay yung mga tunay, mga tunay na maga-angat ng Pilipinas. Sobra na ang mga magnankaw na politico na walang ginawa kundi gahasain ang bayan; puros mga gahaman ang mga iyan.

      • Rey

        tingnan mo nga ang sinasabi mo. nabasa mo ba ang article? pwede sila maging gahaman, gahaman sa katalinuhan. dahil kung mapapansin mo si enrile lang naman ang may kakayahan na pansinin ang issue ng bayan habang ang iba ay busy sa pangangampanya

      • chloe

        hahaha. nasan na yung mga nakikinabang at makikinabang kay Jack? magcomment na kayo, dali! madami nagaabang sa inyo.

        at yung iba na nagcomment na, ano naman yung group niyo? napansin ko din kasi na naka-abang kayo sa mga articles about Jack Enrile at sinisiraan niyo siya.

      • marionics

        he he di naman sa nagaabang kami pero yun lang talaga ang natural na reaksyon namin sa pagkamuhi namin sa bwakanginang magamang yan hahaha

        pero pansin mo naman siguro na halos lahat e minumura si jack at iisa lang naman na may ilang username ang pro jack he he

        LOL!

  • go88

    Maybe he wants it over his marijuana plantations in Cagayan?

    • Loggnat

      :)) Is that true? LOL…

      • go88

        Well there is a lot of weed coming from Cagayan … and who’s in charge of the mafia there?

  • legislex

    I am pretty impressed by the PR firm of Jack Enrile. In one day, Jack Enrile was able to have several articles about him printed here in PDI. Malaki talaga siguro ang budget kaya kahit wala kabuluhan na statement niya eh news article na kaagad unlike sa ibang kandidato. Bukas baka pati pagtaas ng premyo sa lotto ipapangako niya at ilalagay ulit dito sa PDI. Masyadong halata na.

    • $42337655

      madaming pambayad galing sa katagalan sa puwesto.

      gustong manalo para madami pang makurakot in the future

    • http://twitter.com/RolandRamos6 Roland Ramos

      I don’t think it’s his PR firm, I think the media just knows how important Jack’s issues are to the public, and I admire Jack for choosing to focus on these endeavors because only so few senators actually care. Kudos to Jack! Hate all you want but I admire Jack Enrile!

  • regd

    A monkey advising a horse. Poo poo.

  • Loggnat

    You need cloud in order for the cloud seeding to work if you’re lucky. So, without cloud to seed then cloud seeding is not possible. :))

  • $42337655

    wala pa yung mga bayaran at nakikinabang at makikinabang kay Jack.

    late ang dating, dapat bawasan ang bayad sa kanila; sleeping on the job, too much cholesterol in their good and bountiful food.

    maya-maya nandiyan na ang mga iyan, puros “move on”, lol

  • kismaytami

    50/50 ang hatian ni liza at ricky.

  • Orchid

    Scary! What kind of platform or ideas do this Jackie Enrile stand on. This Jackie Enrile is proposing procedures that the country has been using since the development of cloud seeding technology in the 50s! One big problem the country has and which Jackie could not identify is the extremely low quality of lawmakers in the senate which his Daddy Dearest greatly enjoyed so that his Daddy would stand out amongst the pool of idots like senators Sotto, Jingoy Estrada, Lapid, Revilla, Honasan, Trillanes, Lacson. And now this idiot Jackie would like to join in and further lower the standard of lawmaking.

    Yeah, Jackie, cloud seeding + more jobs! What else do you think the nation need to eradicate poverty ? I think, the nation need people unlike Jackie Enrile, Sotto, Lapid, Revilla, Jingoy Estrada, Honasan, and Trillanes who all lowered the quality of lawmaking in the nation.

    • $42337655

      spot on !

    • $42337655

      years of living the good and carefree life (thanks to unexplained tons of wealth), leads to a weak brain.

      the inherent greed, though, still comes out strong as ever.

  • gudwil2all

    • littlemisssunshine

  • jpastor

    The Catholic Church should urged DA to seed Holy Clouds to shower above all political candidates heads to eliminate their corrupt minds.

  • littlemisssunshine

  • littlemisssunshine

  • kristian

  • kristian

  • shean

    kapag walang ginagawa nagrereklamo ang mga tao, kapag naman may ginagawang maganda sinisiraan naman ng mga tao. Malungkot ba kayong mga naninira kay enrile dahil masyado siyang magaling at matalino? palibhasa, yung mga pinagtatanggol niyo ay walang binatbat sa mga plano ni Enrile kaya puro paninira nalang ang sinasabi niyo jan.

    • http://twitter.com/RolandRamos6 Roland Ramos

      Tama! Buti pa si Jack, iniisip niya ang kabuahayan ng mga minamahal natin na magsasaka. At least siya lang may kaya magsalita tungkol sa isyu na toh, at nakikita ko na ito talaga ang prioridad niya. Go Jack Enrile ang galing mo!

  • doodle

    Mabuti nga si Enrile may naiisip na maganda para sa atin. Hindi tulad ng ibang kandidato na nananahimik sa mga issues dhil busy sa pagkkampanya! Go Enrile. Hindi mo nakakalimutang may tungkulin ka parin habang nagcacampaign. :)

  • Cha

    • http://twitter.com/RolandRamos6 Roland Ramos

      Hindi maunlad ang agrikultura ng bansa? Di Yan Pwede Kay Enrile!!!

      Galing mag isip ni Jack. Sana ituloy niya ito pag maging senador na siya!

  • sammy

    mas gugustuhin niyo ba na ang mamuno ay yung walang ginagawang kabutihan. tayo lang din ang mahihirapan. matuwa nalang sana tayo sa mga ginagawang maganda ni Jack Enrile. Buti pa nga siya may nagagawa, e ang iba?

    • http://twitter.com/RolandRamos6 Roland Ramos
