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


@progman2000, if at all government takes up this project I am sure it will create lot of employment opportunities and it will help the government in revival of the ecoomy. But the big question is will government take up such initiative ?

Re: We Spent over a Trillion Bucks in Iraq,What's a Few Billion here and there?
Why not spending a few Hundred Billion here in America instead;which may benefit Us in the Long-Run?

@Ashu001, I totally agree with you. I think investing in America instead is good idea. Instead of spending $187 on building walls we can use the same amount to improve the warning systems and build tornado safe buildings where you can evacuate poeple.

Building walls
OK so I see a couple problems here.  First the disclaimer in there that went along the lines of "scientists aren't sure but they think..." and "maybe warm air pushes one end up" and "maybe hail or rain pushes the other end down"  that's a lot of guessing what might cause tornados to be advising the building of a $190 billion wall.  What happens if that's not how they are formed and that wall not only doesn't stop tornados but it actually intensifies the tornados that do form?

Re: Calling Christo to the Rescue
@Ashish I believe that it should be a naive idea that will work. Moving hamlayas is not actually that I mean, not moving mountain across the continant but may be creating one like creation of floating island is one of its examples. You can have middle east as a very valid example.

Lawsuits
If this were ever attempted, it would obviously affect numerous BIG Players, such as the various subsets of agribusiness, in a multitude of ways that I can't even imagine. The lawsuits would go on into well into the 22nd Century.

Re: creative solution
How will this experiment be performed? Interfering with the elements that affect tornado formation may be possible in a lab setting, but how this will help replicate the phenomenon in real life may not easy.

creative solution
While this seems like a creative e solution I would want to see it tested. To your point, we may create another more serious problem. I would love to see someone experiment with a solution that interferes with the elements that allow tornados to form in the atmosphere stopping their development altogether.

We Spent over a Trillion Bucks in Iraq,What's a Few Billion here and there?
David,

America spent over a Trillion Dollars(and counting) in Iraq so far.

Look where that's landed us today-Iraq is in worse shape than ever and very much in Danger of Splitting up as we speak.

Why not spending a few Hundred Billion here in America instead;which may benefit Us in the Long-Run?

Problem is this Interfering with Mother Nature of the worst kind.

Doubt this will end well.

Regards

Ashish.
