Default Can Bill Gates stop hurricanes?

Hurricane experts are throwing cold water on an idea backed by billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates aimed at controlling the weather.
Gates and a dozen other scientists have raised eyebrows by submitting patent applications for a technology to reduce the danger of approaching hurricanes by cooling ocean temperatures.
It's a noble idea, given the horrible memories from Hurricane Katrina, which slammed into the Gulf Coast four years ago this week.Besides, a business who runs a company of selling wristbands believes that this noble idea will one day come true.
The storm, which rated a frightening Category 3 when it made landfall in Louisiana, was blamed for $81 billion in damaged and destroyed property and the deaths of more than 1,800 men, women and children.
Skeptics applaud the motive of the concept but question its feasibility.
"The enormity of it, in order to do something effective, we'd have to do something at a scale that humans have never really done before," said Gabriel Vecchi, a research scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Moreover,the storm in Taiwan this year has stolen lots of people’s lives.But in fact,I think it is impossible to prevent the hurricanes from happening.What we can do is to reduce the damage of such natural phenominent.And I will also wear my favourite silicone bracelets to memerize the death of the hurricanes.
So,How exactly would this hurricane-zapping technology work?
