Do not reach the era of child-rearing and real jobs with a guitar case full of crushing regret for all the things you wished you’d done in your youth. I know too many people who didn’t do those things. They all end up mingy, addled, shrink-wrapped versions of the people they intended to be — Cheryl Strayed “Tiny Beautiful Things”

How to prevent future hurricanes - with tires?
Engineering professor Stephen Salter, of Edinburgh University, has a big idea. And like lots of big ideas, it doesn’t sound very glamorous at first. He wants to prevent future hurricanes, the devastating storms that recently wreaked havoc on the East Coast, using the lowly tire. Specifically, he would use thousands of tires to keep afloat 100 meter-deep plastic tubes that extend into the ocean. However loony it may sound, he has caught the attention of some important people, such as Bill Gates, and his idea may soon get research funding to find out if he’s right.
Wave action on the ocean surface would force warm surface water down into the deeper ocean. If non-return valves were used, [Salter] says, the result would be to mix the waters and cool the surface temperature of the ocean to under 26.5C, the critical temperature at which hurricanes form.
According to Salter, who has written to the government’s chief scientific officer setting out his scheme, harnessing energy from the waves to cool the surface temperature of the ocean makes ecological sense. The naturally working pumps would be located in “hurricane alley”, the warm corridor in the Atlantic through which the most damaging storms typically develop and pass.
Salter claims that the hydrological problems have been solved but that research funding is urgently needed. “If you can cool the sea surface, you would calm the hurricanes. I estimate you would need about 150-450 of these structures. They would drift around and send out radar signals so that no one would collide with them,” he said.
Salter is not the first to propose technology to stop hurricanes, but his might be the most plausible; other solutions have included posting cannons in Florida to shoot the storm down and blasting them with lasers from space. Let’s hope Salter’s idea doesn’t end up among those ideas, ridiculed by future geoengineers.
