Scientists propose seeding clouds to decrease sea surface temperatures where hurricanes form, in order to tame one of the most destructive forces on Earth.
“Much more research is needed and we are clear that cloud seeding should not be deployed until we are sure there will be no adverse consequences regarding rainfall,” says Alan Gadian of the University of Leeds.
“However if our calculations are correct, judicious seeding of maritime clouds could be invaluable for significantly reducing the destructive power of future hurricanes.”
