A Philadelphia-based physicist at Temple University, Rongjia Tao, a Chinese American, is raising funds to build the 'Great Wall of Texas' to wipe out tornadoes.
According to the Houston Chronicle, "Imagine this: a giant wall stretching a hundred miles and almost a 1,000 feet high across southeast Texas and Louisiana. Now imagine three of those spread throughout the South, put there the stop the tornadoes that devastate parts of the country every year."
Professor Tao opposses the wind in Texas too and contends that the wall can block blowing air.
As reported by the Houston Chronicle, "A physicist at Temple University in Philadelphia has had this idea published once and is just about to get it in another high-profile science journal as a viable suggestion to end the threat of the twisters that regularly strike in so-called Tonado Alley."
The 'Great Wall of Texas' will cost about $16 billion to build.
