In this case, the moron in the video has learned that hurricanes form due to warm sea surface temperatures, so his solution is classic Sammy: [just] dump ice cubes into the ocean to cool it! That's why we have a navy (left unsaid: that's also why we have refrigerators!). Also, since we also have an air force, [just] send in some planes to make the hurricane winds blow in the opposite direction! Presumably, these would be the ones with the big propellers that make a lot of wind, not the silly jets.

To be fair to the moron, Sammy would probably have proposed something even less realistic, undoubtedly involving self-replicating nanobots with little tiny fans doing all the work.
