Not Again!

Here we go again. Time to batten down the hatches. T.S. Rita is coming a scant three weeks after Hurricane Katrina.

It's too late to do this now, but why can't a piece of an iceberg be pulled by tugboat and placed in the tropical intraconversion zone when these storms are in their infancy? If you chill the water, won't that stop the storm's development?

As would covering the surface of the Gulf of Mexico with a very large piece of plastic wrap.

You scoff at my plan, but some large chucks of iceburg in selected sites, could lessen the heat of the water sufficiently to at least de-intensify these monsters a bit. I think this is a plan.
