Japanese Company Hopes to Deploy Fleets of Submarines to Stop Typhoons
By Clay Dillow | POPSCI.com
Typhoons threaten the western Pacific relentlessly year-round, dogging coastal cities along the eastern coast of Asia and sometimes unleashing devastating power that can cost human lives. But even as Taiwan and China clean up after Typhoon Fanapi flooded streets and claimed a handful of lives earlier this month, a Japanese company has patented a scheme that uses submarines to downgrade the force of typhoons as they threaten to make landfall.
Under the plan, a fleet of about 20 subs would dive some 100 feet below the surface just in front of an approaching storm. Each submarine would be fitted with eight pumps capable of quickly dumping more than 500 tons of chilled water per minute into the water above. According to Ise Kogyo, the company behind the idea, 20 submarines could quickly lower the temperature of more than 600,000 square feet of water to the point that a storm’s strength would be diminished.
A typhoon needs water temperatures of between about 77 to around 82 degrees to form and gather steam. Cooling the water in the path of a storm could slow its rotation or even stop a gathering storm in its tracks. In theory, anyhow. A patent application is pending and the scheme may soon be approved in the U.S., though cooling the water may be the least of the problems associated with the idea. For it to work, you first have to predict the path of a storm, then get the submarines in place before the storm can change course.
That’s a lot of variables, but it might be easier than setting off a series of sonic booms in the eye of the storm. As weather manipulation schemes are concerned, it might be one of the more reasonable ones we’ve seen.

Chinaâ€™s stock market is crashing, and the Chinese are trying to do the exact same thing America did in 1929
â€˜While European attention is focused on Greece, China is having a serious market meltdown.

Oregon Is First State to Charge Drivers for Each Mile They Drive

Blumenauer says that's why he signed up for OReGO, the nation's first program to charge drivers based on the number of miles they drive.
The program launched on ...

Human molar scaffolding
The loss of a tooth is a minor deformity and a major pain. Although dental implants are available, the healing process can take months on end, and implants that fail to align with the ever-growing jawbone tend to fall out. If only adult teeth could be regenerated, right?
According to a study published in the latest Journal of Dental Research, a ...
