Re: Weather Changes
Angel,

Global Warming is as Big a Hoax as there is.

Climate Change on the other hand is the real deal.Human Activity has caused Enormous Changes in the World's Air,Water and Soil today-Almost None of them beneficial to Mother Nature in the Long run.

Climate Change is just a way of Mother Nature Biting back.

The more we try to interfere and intervene the worse its Gonna Get going ahead.

Regards

Ashish.

Re: Weather Changes
Nomii,

The Dutch have already built something similar(they call it Dykes).

Even New Orleans has a Dyke which burst during the Big Floods a few years back triggering massive Human Losses during Hurricane Katrina.

Sure,it can done but you have to decide which Areas are important enough to be protected by such Dykes.

Not all areas qualify.

Regards

Ashish.

Re: Calling Christo to the Rescue
Nomii,

I most certainly hope your kidding(about shifting the Himalayas);The Chinese tried something similar last year[Move an entire Mountain so as to reduce Air Pollution in a City];It FAILED Miserably.

If a Totalitarian,Dictatorial country could'nt do something similar should America even try?

I don't think so.

On the contrary the Government should be focussed on Spending Less Money today(especially outside America).

Regards

Ashish.

Re: Calling Christo to the Rescue
@LUFU, I could not believe my eyes first but it is really remarkable. But the only problem is that its art work and not solid concrete. :)

I believe that we need to think of more ideas like shifting of himalayas to that place as a force against them. :)

How about that

Re: Weather Changes
@Progman nice one. I will follow your suit. I am not sure who will take the lead but whoso ever will do it will not be doing it without ant benefit. Its a same case as people are enrolling for onr side trip to mars.

Re: Weather Changes
Not sure about this idea, but I'd buy stock in the companies that build them and short the companies that insure them...

Calling Christo to the Rescue
Well, while the idea may seem a bit ludricous and silly, there's one person who could maybe take the anti-tornado wall project on. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you, Christo!

Re: Weather Changes
@Angelfuego I believe that we ned to work out a plan which can serve various purpose. If we are building a wall and somehow it works, whether we will do it where tornadoes and earthquick are a major natural calamities. What about oceans.I think big wall is more suited in case to stop flooding and storms rather tham tornadoes where you are not expecting its touchdown position.

Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
