For anyone interestedi n how much energy it would take to stop a tropical storm....the math has been done. A very scientific explanation is on a number of sites but ill just post this:
Seems people have looked into the idea of using a nuke. Scientists in the 50s wondered if a nuke set off far above the eye of a storm could reduce its power.
Turns out it probably could...but the energy needed would be absurd and as I assumed...one wont make a dent.
The entire human race...in a year...is only using like a 3rd of the mechanical energy generated by a Katrina level storm.
You would have to try to destroy them as they form and over 80 form a year with just 1-2 ever being a real threat. You would pretty much destroy the coastlines of the world just releasing that much shit into the ocean. And by the time you let the strong ones show themselves they are too strong to impact without just....blowing up everything we have all at once.
So long story short....there are enough nukes to pretty much destroy anything.
You would just have to use everything we have all at once with great precision and do it 2-3 times a year while creating superpowered zombies on the coast.
You would have better luck simply towing a massive piece of artic ice into the storms path to cool it down. But thats a whole other issue....
