Hurricanes. Our Next Power Source

The world's brightest scientist, Neil DeGrasse Tyson wants to harness hurricanes for electricity.

Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson had some seriously weird thoughts on hurricanes in an interview on Sunday, telling Sunday TODAY he believes man should harness the power of hurricanes for good rather than run from them, as one tends to do when 155mph winds and catastrophic storm surge are heading towards one’s beach house.

While discussing the very real need for humans to find ways to proactively adapt to a changing climate rather than running around like chickens with their heads lopped off, Tyson suggested instead of evacuating people should be inventing a way to convert hurricanes into electricity.

Open thread unless something better comes along.
