The bottom line to preventing hurricanes is to prevent warm water. Sea surfaces are currently too warm, which is the number one factor in hurricanes. The easiest proven way to prevent a hurricanes would be to control warm water/ climate change by decreasing greenhouse gasses, but it may be too late.

However, scientists are working on two other methods. The first involves big, cold, bubbles. Scientists believe that they could cool the warm ocean’s surface temperature by blowing cool bubbles that would rise to the surface, and therefore cool it down. Bubbles would be emitted by large pipes under the water’s surface, approximately 100- 150 meters below. The second method is to create a ‘sunglasses’ effect on the Earth’s surface. Sulfates would be pumped into the air and act as sunglasses, blocking much of the sun’s light, and therefore cooling down the oceans. The downside is,too much sulfate would damage the Earth’s ozone; the layer protecting it from the sun for people to live.

There are some scientists who seem to have discovered the solution to stopping a hurricane. This is meant to cool down the ocean so that hurricanes will not form anymore. It seems perfect, right? This would involve injecting sulfates into the atmosphere so that the earth will not be too warm. The problem with this is that it will start to damage the ozone layer which means that the world will come to its deadly end sooner.

It is best if further research would be done about this. There might be better solutions available that can help stop hurricanes. As of now, people should reduce the use of items that are contributing even more to climate change.
