‘Nuke the hurricanes’ Scientists to explain why the nuclear bombs, and hurricanes don’t mix

The Heritage Foundation is a research fellow of the James Roberts to weigh in on the President’s Home’s approach to trade policy with China.

In a report that the President’s Trump card, asked the united states to use nuclear explosions to disrupt the hurricanes, and his later denial that he said anything of the sort – to put a spotlight on the science behind the proposal.

Axios was reported on Sunday that Trump had been “several occasions” a senior Homeland and national security officials that they are looking into the use of nuclear weapons is to protect US from the hurricanes. The report cites anonymous sources who heard Trump’s comments, and had “been briefed on a National security council memorandum stated that these notices.”

The chairman turned to the report on Monday morning.

“It’s the story of the Axios and that as President He wanted to blow up a large hurricane with a nuclear weapon before it reached the shore, it is ridiculous,” He tweeted. “I’ve never said it before. Just more FAKE NEWS.”

In response, Axios, reporters Jonathan Swan and Margaret Talev said that they stand by their story.

“He [Trump] said that on at least two occasions during the first year, and a little bit of the bureau, and in one of the interviews, it was remembered,” Swan tweeted on Monday morning.

Fox News has reached the White House with a request for comment on this story.

Scientists are now saying that to try to disrupt a hurricane with a nuclear weapon is a terrible idea.

HURRICANES AS SEEN FROM SPACE

“Detonating a nuclear bomb in a hurricane, it would not do anything that would disrupt the flow of the storm,” tweeted the climate analyst, and meteorologist Ryan Maue on Sunday. “Instead, you now have a radioactive hurricane.”

The frequently asked Questions section of its website, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), points out that nuking a hurricane would cause lots of problems.

“Not to mention the fact that it might not even be a change of of the storm, this approach neglects the problem that the released radioactive fallout would fairly quickly move with the tradewinds influence in the country, causing devastating environmental problems,” wrote Chris Landsea of the National Hurricane Center. “Needless to say, this is not a good idea.”

Landsea noted that the modification of the cyclones with explosives, it would take an enormous amount of energy.

“A fully developed hurricane can release heat energy at a rate of 5 to 20×1013 w set to less than 10 per cent of the heat into the mechanical energy of the wind,” he said. “The heat release is equivalent to a 10-megaton nuclear bomb exploding every 20 minutes. According to the 1993 World Almanac, the entire human race used energy at a rate of 1013 watts in 1990, a rate less than 20 percent of the force of a hurricane.”

The theme of the use of nuclear bombs against the hurricanes also caused a lot of excitement on social media.

“You can’t nuke a hurricane, for obvious reasons,” quipped the writer and director Edgar Wright on Twitter. “The resulting shock waves would reverberate in the room, shatter the Phantom Zone and release of galactic criminals in our atmosphere, which you can then try to invade the Earth. I can’t believe this is even a discussion.”

In 2016, the National Geographic reported that the agencies have received questions about the use of nuclear weapons against hurricanes for decades to come.
