Hacker_X: Mikey1969: I'm sorry, what can we "do about" weather? We can seed clouds, and that's about it.Well, we can in theory dissipate certain storms. There is also perfectly good reasons why we don't.For example. You could hit dense clouds with enough microwaves to lower the cloud density and stop a potentially dangerous storm. The problems being that you would need an enormous number of large microwave emitters, the power used would be absurd and would almost certainly cause brownouts (or worse), and anything in the path of the emitters would pretty much be instantly killed/destroyed. And that is completely ignoring the disastrous effects that could be generated by pumping that much energy into the air with lightning strikes.A nuke should also work on most storms. I shouldn't need to explain why that one is a bad idea.
