Center for Open Shade Balls

We want to limit the power of hurricanes by limiting the amount of water that can evaporate into them.

Getting a massive number of shade balls into the ocean under hurricanes is the name of the game. The Center for Open Shade Balls is the home for the project aimed at using terraforming technology on our own planet to make it a better place, and opening that technology up to a wide audience benefit from it. Shade balls prevent water from evaporation, and so can so prevent the warm, wet air in a hurricane from rising. This would act to poison the hurricane, effectively shutting the system's convection currents down.

Shade balls can be designed to perform specific functions inside the hurricane, and once no longer needed, reclaimed shade balls can be a source of guilt-free plastic. Developing this technology out will prepare humans to optimise the scaling (and de-scaling) of the machinery of production with a simple, useful, safe, and recycleable material.

In the 1960's NOAA did some research into discovering whether or not some type of barrier between the ocean surface and the hurricane might help reduce the energy of or even dissipate a hurricane.

Why don't we try to destroy tropical cyclones by placing a substance on the ocean surface?

What are shadeballs?

Shade balls are a class of objects that are used to create a reflective or insulative barriers, typically blocking sunlight.
