Hurricane Katrina - A different perspective
      #57958 - Thu Oct 06 2005 12:05 AM

Not sure how many people have seen this, but it is certainly a different perspective.

I reallly think Scott's watched the Sci Fi channel too long. Good Grief! On second thought, maybe it was aliens flying stealth UFOs dropping an unknown type of meteorological steroids into the clouds right after zapping the oceans and Gulf with laser beams to raise the SSTs. Takes all kinds, I guess.

Poor Guy - Lucky for him he lives in Idaho where he should be relatively safe from hurricane attacks -

In thinking about the bigger question of whether control of these systems is possible I am always most impressed by their sheer size an energy output - No nuke or the entire output of the worlds energy for a day can match that of a tropical cyclone - so at least for now we have to wait until we have bigger guns to control the weather

Not only is it not possible, it's a very bad idea. Tropical cyclones play an important part in atmospheric energy dispersion and disrupting them could have some nasty effects on the climate of seemingly unrelated areas. Of course, we don't really know this for sure, but thermodynamics dictates that the energy has to go somewhere .
