    Thumbs up Bill Gates Applies For Patent On System To Weaken Hurricanes.

    Linkage

    CNN) -- Hurricane experts are throwing cold water on an idea backed by billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates aimed at controlling the weather.

    Gates and a dozen other scientists have raised eyebrows by submitting patent applications for a technology to reduce the danger of approaching hurricanes by cooling ocean temperatures.

    It's a noble idea, given the horrible memories from Hurricane Katrina, which slammed into the Gulf Coast four years ago this week.

    The storm, which rated a frightening Category 3 when it made landfall in Louisiana, was blamed for $81 billion in damaged and destroyed property and the deaths of more than 1,800 men, women and children.

    Skeptics applaud the motive of the concept but question its feasibility.



    I should patent my idea for dealing with hurricanes. I've noticed that water swirls around my sink while draining and that if I put my finger in the center it greatly impedes it's swirling. So my idea is to build a huge finger that can orbit in space and then be deployed when necessary. I rule!
