Consider a block of 200mx200mx1m of sea floor at the start locations of the hurricanes, for example of Harvey 2017 and Irma 2017. Assume that the dam content changes for the entire globe are summed for each point of time for an appropriate period of time up to the start of the Hurricane . The corresponding mass of water for such world dam content change acts at the Center of Gravity of the water masses behind the world’s dams. The TOTAL dam content change appearing at the center of gravity exerts a water moment change at the location of the start of the hurricane. The shock so delivered is assumed to raise the temperature of the block of sea floor, applying the precautionary principle, to determine a baseline of temperature rise for the block- a source term for the cause of the hurricane and its severity. The temperature rise is proportional to the dam content change. For the period considered, the sum of such temperature rises to the start of the Hurricane gives us an idea of the cumulative temperature rises transformed to deaths, destruction and damages wrought by the hurricane. The Newton’s Law of cooling seems inadequate to mitigate the consequences of the water inputs and withdrawal from the dams.
2. Forests, the solution.
Opt for forests, infinitely superior to dams, forests which defy gravity and create an atmospheric distribution net of water all over and keep earthquakes and climate change at bay!
