Still, this CNN story about whether or not he can stop hurricanes is, shockingly, not from The Onion. It sort of makes him sound like a nutty mad scientist. “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.”
Apparently, the definitive answer from experts is that, no, Bill Gates, cannot stop Hurricanes. Shocking.
