... in war the screams are loud and harsh and in peace the wail is so drawn-out we tell ourselves we hear nothing.

Great little explainer:



From about 9:50 to 12:30 is real interesting.  Uses some tools I've never seen before to show atmospheric currents and storm structure to explain a couple different model's differing tracks.

Dorian is projected to hit Port Nassau within the next 12 hours or so.

Get the airforce to fly against the earths rotation and reverse time! Easy peasy!

The scale of error in his sense of scale is epic.

Get the Navy to drop ice in the ocean to cool it off!!!  ;D ::)

Fascinating!

So if the Navy were able to cool the ocean, apparently it would drive the hurricane ashore, causing more damage even though the winds would be weaker. Not only is the icy guy suggesting the impossible, but if his suggestion were possible, it would be worse than doing nothing.

Holy shit. Normally when you're hit by a hurricane, you can be assured that it will move on to somewhere else eventually, but it's just sitting there.
