Disaster, disaster, disaster. Do you think there will ever be a way to control Mother Nature disasters or prevent the major disasters from damaging property in a simple mannner? That is exactly what the world needs. Imagine the satellite sending some type of signal ray to the eye of a hurricane to stop it. Imagine a chemical being placed in the woods to put out a fire in a quick manner from a dry high heated forest. Imagine an 18 inch pipeline planted far underground that would fill the underneath with a thick liquid rubber substance to prevent earth's structure from becoming uneven if an earth quake is about to occur.Think of what inventions scientist and individuals with high wisdom have thought of already in life from putting man on the moon to talking on cell phones. Is the best thing they can think of so far to control Mother Nature is an umbrella to prevent yourself from getting wet in a rainstorm? What is taking so long for men/women to control Mother Nature? Do you have any ideas?

There would not be so much climate change if it wasn't for the weather.

Perhaps we could get the military-industrial complex to spray Chemtrails in the sky.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Excellent thinking, Tommy. I wonder why no one else never thought of such a great idea.

Odd how science can predict within a foot where a rocket will land, but can miss the landfall of the hurricane eye by a hundred miles.

Mother Nature is just too powerful. Man will never defeat it, we will only learn the best hiding places. Smile

Yes that what it looks like, Tom. I bet in a thousand years something will be thought of (if mother nature has not destroyed the earth by then.)

We can predict the path of a hurricane with amazing accuracy. You see it on the TV news weather report all the time. Weather prediction is a very exact scince with wonderful results based on very observable scietific conditions.

The problem and the reason weather reports often get it wrong, is that the predictions are based on conditions RIGHT NOW. If the conditions change minute to minute, then so does the weather. What can change the conditions? Basically weather is controlled by only two things, heat and moisture. That is it, that is all. Wind is also based almost 100% on heat paters, but wind can change many things, like moving heat and mositure from one place to another. This can cause massive changes in weather paterns. It can also cause a storm direction to shift by a few degrees.

Now, think about what I just said, and add in the fact that the earth is a bit warmer than it used to be. Not much; less than one degree. Can such a small change in heat casue larger huricanes? I suppose it can. Just look around and see.

Note: I will allow people and scientists who are smarter than I am to debate how much of that heat is cyclical to the Earth and how much is being done by human action.
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!

What can control Mother Nature?

In a word: nothing.

We can seed clouds, so there is a small amount of control we "could" inflict on nature.

Here is the thing that people don't get. You stop something or take something from one place, it affects the balance of things. Take, for instance, cloud seeding. Deposits moisture in one place, rather than another. That other place suffers from too little rain. We as humans tend to be short sided in the grand scheme of nature. Most of our attempts at short term fixes have much worse long term consequences.

But rediculous appearing ideas are how radical discoveries and inventions come about.

The list of things that started with "Man will never..." which then turned out to be wrong is quite a long list. Just sayin'. Smile

When I first walked a section of the John Muir Trail I encountered a sign before a meadow. It pleaded that each hiker walk a different path across,
noting that every footstep could change the future potential of thousands of plants, insects and small animals.
To following another's trail would create a path that would alter the face and future of the meadow even for birds and larger animals.

Everything we do as humans has an impact on life on this planet. Are humans custodians, users or an infestation?
We cannot destroy the earth, but can make it uninhabitable for many plant and animal species - including ourselves.

Maybe if we tried being a friend to Mother Earth instead of a thug or rapist we might find less disaster all around us.

Agree. We can't even get weather reports accurate. Mother Nature is to strong and can never be controlled.

If anything would ever be developed (which that will never happen) I will give credit where credit is due.

I cannot offer proof; only evidence.

Call it a hunch.

Consider the humble tsunami. Most people are under a misconception about them. They envision a wave, or wall of water, three or four stories high that wipes out everthing in its' path. There are such tsunamis, but they are rare. Most hit the shore with a height of ten feet or lees. The last one to hit the Southern California coast a copuple of years back was about 2 inches tall. Not lying. Now consider this. A gallon of water weighs about 8 pounds. If a tsunami hits the coast at a height of 1 foot deep. It will hit a human sized object with less than 15 pounds. Doesn't sound to scary does it? On a good day at the beach waves will hit you with worse... and you will not only survive, but probably play in it. But here comes the kicker. first that 15 pound is coming at around 60 miles an hour (give or take) Imagine trying to catch a bowling ball coming at you with that kind of speed. Worse, it will not be 15 poounds, because the water that hits you is being pushed by all the gallos of water behind it. Many thousands. This is how trees, houses and objects get smashed by tsunamis.

Now to the question, can we control mother nature. What kind of power do you have to stand against what I just outlined? Our best option is to run, or seek higher ground. We have no such power. Better still to control mother nature we would have to be able to stop that tsunami before it forms. OK. anyone want to calculate the enrgy of an underwater earthquake or landslide?

Last night there was something on the telly that I could hear as I was writing the answer key to this semester's first midterm exam in linear algebra and differential equations. It was talking about a possible volcanic eruption from Yellowstone. Their estimate was that the ash therefrom could be enough to cover the state of Texas to a depth of - if memory serve - five feet.

That, my friends, is Mother Nature. In no way can Man control that amount of force.

Wow. Even a depth of six inches would be uncontrollable.

Then consider for a moment lightning. 100 or so bolts hit the ground every second.

Yes, Mother Nature will kick your butt if you stand in her way.

Like that old TV commercial used to said, “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature”
