In my previous post I discussed how hurricanes are formed, and now there is new research on how to disperse or at least weaken them all together. An article from http://online.wsj.com/articles/offshore-wind-turbines-could-tame-hurrica... discusses how researchers from Stanford University and University of Delaware have suggested how tens of thousands of gigantic wind turbines offshore could suck the energy out of storms and pay for themselves with the electrical energy they produce.
Given what people in New York and New Jersey are going through with Hurricane Sandy, I thought Youth Voices readers might like to see some writing by third graders in response to Hurricane Gustav a few years ago.
Hurricane Gustav arrived, Labor Day weekend, 2008. Baton Rouge had a lot of wind damage and power loss that lasted for days. There was also some flooding from local rivers rising due to rains.
Global warming is a huge thing in our world. It is not only effecting us but is also effecting the animals and our world. The more that we use oils and dangerous chemicals, the more we start to break our world apart. We have used so much oil and chemicals that the arctic shelfs are starting to break down and fall apart. Nearly 23 percent of the total area have broken off.
