from ABC news 13 July 2009- "An application filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Jan. 3, 2008, lists Gates and 12 others as the
inventors of a number of methods to control and prevent hurricanes."
Bill Gates has patented an idea to combat hurricanes. That's right, he is going to "save" us from evil hurricanes like the one that devastated New
Orleans in 2005. He is going to do so, apparently, by sending several ships out into the gulf waters at strategic locations, which will cool the
waters of the gulf to prevent hurricanes from forming.
To all of those out there with crazy schemes to try to control nature, because of Global Warming, or attempting to stop hurricanes, or whatever you
are doing, i ask you. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!
When you mess with mother nature, she is going to bite back. This is much like the idea that they had to blast thousands of aluminum particles into
the atmosphere to reflect the UV rays, and reduce global warming. Global warming isn't real. It has been proven over and over again. And taking
action like that, i could only imagine the consequences.
People time and time again, seem to forget that we don't understand nature, or the weather. We can't even predict the weather 24 hours out
sometimes. I don't know how many times i saw 75% chance of rain today, looked outside, and saw no clouds. and of course no rain the whole day. As
well as the opposite. How can we really think that we can make the weather do what we want, without consequences, when we don't even understand how
it works all that much.
There is a balance to everything, and nothing we have done thus far has altered it. Hurricanes pick up and dump much needed water onto the mainland
which hydrates the soil, replenishes the rivers and lakes, and well, makes up for the little rainfall here and there. Without hurricanes "playing
catch-up" with re-hydration of the land, mass droughts would occur, the lands would dry, and vegetation would die. It is not our place to change the
weather as we see fit. The butterfly effect would be catastrophic if we were to do such a thing on that scale.
Basically, I want to say, that it is not our place to try to own nature, nor control the weather, simply for our own selfish wants and desires, to
avoid spending money on damages from hurricanes, when we could just *ahem* move, or try to find ways to ensure our homes are safe from destruction,
(meaning that we put the money into our homes, not into trying to alter the weather)
