And the crazy amount of spinning a Hurricane does I'm pretty sure it releases its own energy. So a nuke wouldnt be doing much of anything I dont think. Besides contaminating enviroments and screwing us over. Well people down there atleast.
Mother Nature wins.
If you think about it....all it is...is moving water and air. And its not in the ocean. Its out in the air so its not like fighting off a tital wave. Clearly a large enough number of nukes would just evaporate the drops of water that have come together and the wind would disrupt the spinning.
Enough nukes could of course stop what is at its most basic....a huge spinning bit of steam created by heat and pressure. The issue is....how many is enough. I dont know the damage current nukes can do. I know they are much stronger than those used during WW2. whole other kind of bomb. Russia set off a bomb in 1961 that was 1400 times more powerful than the 2 used in WW2 combined. That bomb was a quarter as powerful as the largest explosion ever recorded....a volcano which blocked out the sun and caused snow in the summer in America...from the South Pacific.
This bomb was so big the fireball seen here:
Was seen by people 640 miles away. Imagine me setting off a bomb so big here in the south...that you see it blow up in Philly. The mushroom cloud was 40 miles high. That ball of fire you see...was 5 miles wide and 8 miles high.
And that bomb was HALF what they planned. They cut the size in half just to be safe.
And that was 50 years ago.
And it had nothing on what we are capable of now.
Blown up...deep in the ocean as they first form? I dont know that you couldnt disrupt a storm enough to keep it from coming back full strength.
Sure a tropical storm might be hundreds of miles wide...but im sure that 600 bombs like that would sure as hell do something to a giant cloud.
Id just like to know how many would be needed and how safe it would be.
Humanity has set off thousands of nukes in tests. The US alone over 1000. The world seems to be ok.
Most of them are just done in places we dont hear about. Im not sure how much damage a few being fired out at sea would do. At least im not sure it does more damage than was done to New Orleans anyway.
