The Mainichi Shimbun, one of Japan’s major newspapers, reports[J] a manufacturing company called Ise Kogyo[J] in the Central Japan has invented a new idea that enables to let a typhoon downshift its strength with a bunch of submarines. Twenty submarines having special equipments for pumping out cold water from the deep sea to the sea surface may contribute to surface cooling, which is capable of getting its temperature down by three degrees (Celsius) in the area of 57,600 square meters, the company’s chief executive Koichi Kitamura says. Then it leads to weakening the typhoon.
The company got patents about the idea in Japan and India, and the U.S. patent is also pending to be approved. Japan’s Meteorological Research Institute assesses the idea can work efficiently in terms of logical perspectives. I have no idea on whether Japan’s Maritime Self-defense Forces can make it by deploying such a number of submarines for preventing our country from the natural disaster when needed.
