urban.derelict: Because the size of a hurricane dwarfs the size of an atomic blast.
jaylectricity: I'm just happy to see that this article is actually explaining why we shouldn't. This being Fark and all, it wouldn't have surprised me.
TheOnion: Lisa: "Nuke the whales"? You don't really believe that, do you?Nelson: I dunno. Gotta nuke somp'm.Lisa: Touché.
sandbar67: I'm in. Lets do it.
Marcus Aurelius: jaylectricity: I'm just happy to see that this article is actually explaining why we shouldn't. This being Fark and all, it wouldn't have surprised me.The article sounds reasonable, but have we ever detonated a 30 megaton warhead just inside the upwind wall of a major hurricane to see what happens? Have we? Everything in a 10 mile radius reaches 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit in milliseconds. Causing a huge updraft which.... ummmm....OK, so maybe it's not such a hot idea after all.
China White Tea: Very reasonable article. How farking boring./Can't we do it just once? Just to see what happens? Pleeeeeeeease?
China White Tea: /Can't we do it just once? Just to see what happens? Pleeeeeeeease?
jaylectricity: China White Tea: /Can't we do it just once? Just to see what happens? Pleeeeeeeease?OK...so where? Atlantic Ocean? Australia? I mean, while we're exploring this idea...where could we reasonably get away with it, and not ruin an entire culture?
Marcus Aurelius: sandbar67: I'm in. Lets do it.Hurricanes thrive on heat and water. You might possibly turn a category 1 into a much stronger storm by detonating h bombs underwater just ahead of the storm, which would feed on the massive quantities of steam produced. Hell, you might even be able to steer it that way. You could steer a cat 5 straight into many parts of Asia.Now THAT'S what I'd call practical.
