    I just read this article about Trump's way to deal with hurricanes before they hit the land. Does it make sense? I don't know much about hurricanes and stuff like that, but can it be stopped by destroying the eye of the storm? Is the eye even a concrete form like Sauron's eye or something?

    Supposedly in theory if you produce a strong enough force going the opposite direction of the main hurricane itself the reaction should cause it to go unstable and either disintegrate or just become a normal storm. I have no clue how we would go about doing that but i assume the military has some fun fancy toys that could. Whether or not it will be able to be applied in reality is also unknown.

    Edit: Or the force would just be eaten by the hurricane making it into a super storm and destroying everything lol

    They look like they're planning to nuke africa now. This looks like a good reason to nuke japan again. Send those normalfags to isekai.:blobcat_knife::blobcat_knife::blobcat_knife:

    Nuking a hurricane will spread radioactive materials to the atmosphere, bad idea,

    its a bad idea, sure you don't have to deal with a hurricane, assuming it works, then now you have deal with the radiation over one of the most used sea ways (imagine the BP oil spill of 2014 but instead of oil its radioactive seawater)

    nukes themselves are a seriously bad idea.

    Cloud seeding to weaken hurricanes/etc.. that's been an idea since the 50's. It's theoretically possible but the practicalities of scale in relation to effect has proved to be much more complex.

    Destabilizing hurricanes is possible and happens at the windshear in front of South America. But here is the issue: We are talking about energy amounts which could sustain our civilization for multiple years. And that is only one of these storms.

    The issue is further increasing as climate change progresses since these weather anomalities draw their power from warm ocean water. The moment a certain treshold in temperature is passed a hurricane forms and the warmer the water the worse it gets. Throw in a boost of one degree due to climate change and record hurricanes from the 50s of the 20th will become the norm in the 50s of the 21th. And they will also appear a lot more frequently.

    The best way to deal with them will most likely end in emmigrating from the coast, and fortifying the buildings to a point where they can tank the winds. Ultimately this is only one of the extreme weather anomalies we will see appearing more and more the less our governments get shit done.

    First thought: Using a sledgehammer to swat a fly sounds stupid.

    While it could be theoretically possible, using a nuke is too much. For so many reasons.

    I know people are used to saying nuking problems are the answers, but in this situation... it's definitely not the answer!
    We can nuke the incoming objects from space should they be a threat to our planet or particular places by certain groups, but to nuke nature? This ain't fighting fire with fire, but more like transforming a deadly whirlwind to a lethal whirlwind of fire and radiation.

    Tell me this is a joke, because if they actually do that... well, here comes the Exodus' man-made flaming pillar.

    Just wanna ask because im kinda confused.
    Hurricane is like a storm but stronger, right? Not like tornadoes?
    If yes, isnt it kinda impossible to nuke the "eye of the storm"? Because unlike tornadoes, storms are way bigger?

    Pft, you mean using a spoon to stab a dragon? The power output of a hurricane far outmatch that of a nuke

    The difference is so massive its not even funny anymore. Even the largest hydrogen nukes are a soft breeze compared to a hurricane.

    Really? I thought a nuke would be stronger, especially if you find the best point of impact.

    You underestimate how stupid high the energy of a hurricane is. An average hurricane contains the power of 10.000 nuclear bombs. @Bad Storm
