Introducing Google Wind

Holland is one of the greatest countries to live in, but the biggest downside is that it rains 145 days a year. That’s why the Google Cloud Platform team in the Netherlands is launching Google Wind this Spring.

We leveraged existing Dutch infrastructure to realize this moonshot in record time. We upgraded some historical windmills in Holland with control modules connected to Google Cloud Platform. Google Wind then uses Machine Learning to recognize cloud patterns and orchestrate the network of windmills when rain is approaching. Test results look very promising.

We’re proud to announce that from April 1st we’re able to help ensure clear skies for everyone in Holland.

    If you're left here after Jesus returns you'll definitely be seeing and feeling a lot of sun. Revelation 16:9
    “And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.”

    Microsoft did this 15yrs ago in the town of lefthaveb and Rember the radiation killed 90% of farm animals! And 5% of the population still has heat seenstive issues now and can't go in the sun!

    So now you make those rains go to some other country..

    Playing with nature..

    See the footage when it rained.. it looked so lovely and felt like to visit that place..

    And see it after removing clouds..

    Sunny.. and irritating sunshine all day..

    A good company.. just a request.. please don't destroy nature.. let it function as it is

    Though i know it is an APRIL FOOL..

    still you never know some idiot can take this idea to some different level..

    Ya if you want to use it use it to wnd drought every where in the world.. but not for this purpose..

    Hope it remains a prank..
