A hurricane would laugh at that small of a mosquito bite.

No, but if everyone believes and claps their hands Tinkerbell will come back to life.

"Sorry to break it to you Florida, but the hurricane heading toward you is now radioactive!"

This was already thought of, and no, it won't work.

Yes you can nuke GWB's Hailburton Hurricane Maker.

Sure but it wont make any difference other than quickly spread the radiation.

I can hear it now.

"The government nuked the hurricane and saved our town, but now I'm going to get cancer from radioactive fallout and die!"

Thought about taking the mixed lab down to the beach and let her bark at it to make it go away. Other than that hope the one thats forming up off the keys heads elsewhere.

Great, something else to piss off Mother Nature, thats what we need !

Yes, and you can pee on a forest fire too, but it won't do any good.

yes but you must wait till its over cuba......

Nukes won't work, but if everyone on the planet jumped up and down at the same time, it could downgrade or divert any hurricane to less populated areas.
Link Posted: 9/18/2005 8:25:14 PM EDT
probably depends on the religion of the hurricane with this crowd
Link Posted: 9/18/2005 8:32:09 PM EDT
You Bet!

I here the middle east might be hit by a hurricane
Better throw every strategic Nuke we have in the arsenal over there and stop it before it can do any damage!

Didn't we just have this thread...?
Link Posted: 9/18/2005 8:38:44 PM EDT
The answer is no. Even several megatons of energy that a nuke would release is only a fraction of the power of a hurricane. The only thing that a nuke will do is spread radiation through out the path path of the hurricane.

The Discovery channel went into depth about using nukes to stop a hurricane. Will not work.
Link Posted: 9/18/2005 8:40:05 PM EDT
Sure you can nuke a hurricane...but if you mean 'will nuking a hurricane stop it' the answer is pretty mucha resounding no. A hurricane has several orders of magnitude more energy than even the larges of nuclear weapons.
Link Posted: 9/18/2005 8:50:17 PM EDT
Well NOT if it is already a hurricane.

Assuming for a moment we had something on the order of a 50 megaton device that had NO RADIOACTIVE considerations you could blow the structure out of developing storms to prevent them from being organized. Troublemakes could theoretically need to be hit 4 or 5 times as the re develop across the Atlantic.

The storms would still perform the function brouhaha cited as Tropical Depressions and Tropic Storms rather than as organized monsters.

Some would get away from you or be so large there simply would be no preventing them from being a Cat 1 or 2. And obviously if you waited until you were dealing with a monster Cat 3 or more several hundred miles across you may as well piss on it at that point for all the good a 50 meg device would do.

But this is all pretty academic as we do not have such a thing as a non radioactive nuke in the 50 megaton range. And the only thing worse than a hurricane is a radioactive hurricane.

Nuking a Hurricane would be like tossing a grenade in a thunderstorm.
Link Posted: 9/18/2005 9:14:45 PM EDT
well you didnt say how big a nuke......

a gigaton or two outta blow the center of circulation out of the upper atmosphere...

A hurricane would probably just say: " Gee, thanks for all that extra evaporated sea water....now I've got a few more bazillion gallons to dump on land"

Wouldn't the hurricane just spread the radiation and fallout around even more?

That's what I thought too.

This is ARFCOM you can nuke anything. From orbit just to make sure.
Link Posted: 9/18/2005 10:47:21 PM EDT
Interesting quesiton with some not so interesting replies so far. Actually, when Mt. Pinatobu blew in Luzon, Philippine in June of 1991, Tropical Storm Yunya was just coming ashore from the southeast bowling over central Luzon. On the weather satellite pictures, you could see the ash cloud come up, along with the circular storm coming ashore. In subsequent pics, the storm gets overwhelmed by the ash cloud and dies out to a depression and fizzled out in the South China Sea (SCS) after crossing the island. Normally, the majority of storms that cross the P.I. weaken, then regenerate and strengthen in the SCS into Typhoons. This one didn't, and it is my belief that the weight of the ash cloud killed the storm.

So, nuclear mushroom cloud vs Typhoon / Hurricane, I'd put money on the nuke.

Make it stop.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 6:50:49 AM EDT
I did read about a study where they would basically send a supersonic capable jet into the hurricane and it would fly an arc such that all the sonic booms would "arrive" at the right place at the right time. That would disrupt the hurricane enough to dissiapate the storm. Of course it's only been "lab tested" . . .

Maybe if every household affected by the hurricane places a household rotary fan against the winds....you can neutralize it.

So who forgot to take their meds this morning?

I think you'd need a frequancy (sic) generator of some kind.

Problem is, that a nuclear 'Mushroom Cloud' isn't even close to the ash-content of a volcanic eruption...

Most of the nuke cloud is super-heated air (eg 'Hurricane Fuel')

What about a FAE into a tornado?
At the very least it would turn into a burning twister...which would look pretty cool!

You big bunch of armchair meteorphysicists! Of course it will work! But you have to nuke the eye of the storm and it only works if it's directly over the remnants of New Orleans.

We could always seed the clouds of a hurricane with liberal politicians and various left-wingers. Their extreme density would cause all the water vapor to instantly fall out of the sky and disarm the hurricane.
