I know nothing significant about meteorology and definitely not a science guy so this will probably seem naive...
But today I am wondering if there is any existing science or methods a government (with enough funds) could employ, through science, to lessen the force of a hurricane?
I vaguely remember something about them being affected by air temperatures, so couldn't something be done to somehow inject heat or refrigeration into the area? Or something to counteract against it's speed increases?
What approaches would one consider in such an endeavor?
