Hurricane Wall

How dare they ?

Hurricanes cause tremendous amounts of damage in the USA.

But they don't start there; they begin over West Africa, and track over the Atlantic ocean, feeding off warm tropical water, before arriving at the American shoreline.

They arrive unsolicited, lacking a visa or travel documents, and barge their way in.

This is clearly unacceptable.

The answer is going to be the construction of a five mile high solid wall all around the southern and eastern US coastline. This will keep the hurricanes out, for sure.

Investigations are continuing into how to finance the project.

       Well its a high wall, so how about electricity generation from wind power ? Will work well until Trump stops talking.

       Important, pertinent, frequently and currently quite necessary. Hurricanes suck. Things get damaged, houses too, especially houses. Perhaps even mine.   

       Worse than the Vogon Constructor Fleet? Time will tell.

       So the problem is west Africa. Or, it seems the vast amounts of energy in and around the Sahara in certain conditions. I think that's all the excuse we need to refill megalake Chad, Congo and perhaps a few other low lying areas. If spurious experimentation on a continental scale doesn't work, I don't know what will.

       I imagine that Mexico will fund it, and build it the instant that Trump Retard tells them it's their job, and to get on with it.

       Since //feeding off warm tropical water// is part of the problem, would it not be cheaper to cool the ocean by bringing a few icebergs down from the Arctic...   

       Oh.   

       Never mind!
