Hurricanes are very beautiful
only when you look at them from the side
Have you Heard the news? Donald trump decided to start a nuclear war... Yet, but with . To say that his entourage was shocked means to say nothing. However, the American leader insists on exploring this possibility and instructed. Now his advisers have to agree or to prove the impossibility of such a struggle. Let's see, what is this “war” and what it may cause.
More specifically, the essence of the proposal of trump is as follows. Hurricanes originate off the coast of Africa, and then, passing across the Atlantic, reaching U.S. shores. Usually they are strong enough. To recall hurricane Katrina, when New Orleans and part of Louisiana experienced the full power of the elements. It was a category 5 hurricane on the scale of hurricanes of Saffira-Simpson and the sixth largest in the Atlantic in the entire history of observations. According to official estimates, it claimed the lives of 1836 residents and caused damage of 125 billion dollars. These figures are not surprising due to the fact that 80% of New Orleans was under water.
Of Course, these hurricanes are born every year, but less destructive storms can cause severe damage. To avoid them and not let the United States, the current President offered to send in the middle of a hurricane emerging nuclear warhead that should destroy it and not allow to be formed finally. While not stated exactly in what must be a blow, but apparently when the hurricane will be at a safe distance from Africa.
It is Worth noting that such ideas were already in the 34th U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower. He also offered to fight hurricanes with bombs, but it never came to realization. Even two years ago talked about this possibility, however, then sounded the word “nuclear”.
If the trump is adopted and minuses to this method of struggle will not, action could begin in the near future, when it formed a new hurricane. This occurs most often in late summer.
How would it not sound strange, the cloud is really possible . However, one should not forget that on the planet and what is happening in it, even the explosion of the atomic bomb is not something really significant. Yes, it can considerably shake the Earth's surface, allowing seismic sensors for many hundreds of kilometres to feel the vibration from the explosion, but a hurricane is a hell of a thing.
the Most destructive weapon trying to put in service to the world, but not yet obtained.
However, the hurricane is a moving air masses, the main reason for the formation of which are temperature extremes. When the mechanism is already running and the weight began to move actively, they can be stopped only by breaking the movement. For example, in the Cup, after stirring the tea, its circular motion can be stopped only significantly intervening in the process with a spoon. Also with hurricanes.
If the power bomb is enough to violate the movement of air masses, potentially, it can stop a hurricane, but only if the force of the explosion will be very big. According to approximate calculations, this power bombs should be 20 megatons. For comparison, on Hiroshima dropped a bomb capacity of 15 kilotons (almost 1000 times weaker). However, there are other undesirable consequences of this struggle with the elements.
We won't argue with the President and his advisors, or just themselves try to speculate on the dangers of the use of strategic warheads for the destruction of the hurricane.
Not so long ago the question was raised on the struggle with the hurricanes. with knowledge of the case talked on this subject. If we apply the reasoning to the current situation, it can be concluded that a bomb could not destroy the movement of the masses, but rather to increase the area of their movement, as if stretching her. This is quite undesirable, as it can lead to even greater destruction. This will only happen in case of insufficient strength of the explosion. If “push” the air mass is strong enough, the rotation speed will drop. This is due to the fact that the wider the turning radius, the lower its speed.
In addition, do not forget that the explosion must be carefully prepared. In a large radius from the center of the explosion should be no ships.
In addition to the physical damage of the objects by the blast can knock down some communications systems, including aircraft, even at a considerable distance. This is due to the fact that during a nuclear explosion around the subject to electromagnetic interference, which are also affecting factor in the explosion.
Do Not forget that small island, though not visible on the globe, but are all over the ocean. They are also better to stay away, as they can be people. All this greatly narrows the list of possible use of atomic bombs in the fight against hurricanes.
Importantly, the experiments with the weather as not to hurt people and animals.
Last, but perhaps the most significant drawback of such exposure will be radiation contamination. Except that itin danger of radiation fallout, we should not forget about the Gulf stream, which can spread contaminated water throughout the world, starting with Europe, which catches fish in coastal waters. They will get the first wave radiation. Hardly, the Western European States are willing and agree with this fight against hurricanes.
Say what method you choose to combat hurricanes now difficult. One thing is almost certain. they will not be. Yes, the effects of the hurricanes very sad — people are dying, billions are spent on reconstruction. But experiments on bombardment of clouds in the ocean look even more dubious.
