Hurricane Diapers to the Rescue!,2933,170254,00.html

This was brought to my attention by a co-worker. Fox News had an interview a Mr. Peter Cordani who wants to use the same sort of gel used in diapers to disrupt hurricanes a little bit.

My first instinctive reaction was “this guy is full of crap,” but then I got to thinking about it. Diaper gel coagulates with the addition of water. It must be an endothermic reaction or they wouldn’t put it into diapers. Maybe this guy has got something.

Anyhow, check out the links. I haven’t read them all, but I did skim the Fox News article.
