I have been hearing lately that these planes (jets) that has been spraying constantly, I think it was called "cloud seeding", and I have heard before that in weather modification, they are able to stop rain, make it rain, cause fronts etc... If this is TRUE, WHY won't they try to calm down these HUGE hurricanes? When a tropical storm just forms, why not try to 'seed the clouds' and try to disable it some? I'm sure they know how to do things like that. I just was wondering why they don't try to lessen these category 3,4,5 hurricanes . I never hear of anyone even trying to. I realize this might be considered a stupid question but if they do know how and don't do anything, well, you know what that makes them look like.

You know, it makes them responsible for ALL THAT OCCURS because of what they do to these storms. Is there any way to stop these evil bas-----? Or is it impossible to even get near them? ........ I have never understood how people can be so evil. It's almost like they aren't human..

Forgive me if I am wrong, but...NOAA never placed this hurricane at a CAT 5. So, why the misleading title? Were you jumping the gun trying to make some sort of prediction?
