If Bill Gates has his way, the intensity of natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina can be lessened or thwarted entirel—and he’s already filed a patent in this endeavor to control the weather.

According to Gizmodo, Bill Gates’ patent to control the weather calls for a giant fleet of vessels, which can be deployed in a hurricane’s path to mix in cold water from greater depths, which would in turn effectively reduce the surface temperature of the ocean and reduce the condensation that helps make hurricanes happen in the first place.

Bill Gates acknowledges in his patent that this will be a Herculean task—both logistically and financially—and posits that insurance policies sold in hurricane-prone areas could be one of the ways in which his plan could be financed. Stats for Making Hurricanes Obsolete Trending: Older & Mild
