Bill Gates is no superhero

art_gates_giHe’s just a computer nerd and ruthless business man and probably bored-stiff now that he’s not running Microsoft on a day-to-day basis. 

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.
