Can giant walls protect the USA from tornadoes?

The guy who came up with this ignorant idea is a fool.(and probably working on a government grant, no less) Besides that fact that it wouldn't work, what effect would those kinds of structures have on the rest of the ecosystem/weather patterns/ etc. You can't fool mother nature.

You have to think big if you are going to accomplish anything significant. So I do applaud this guy for that. After all, 100 years ago, you would not think that we could have traveled to the moon and back. Would you?

Or a little plastic box that fits in the palm of your hand where you can speak and have someone hear your voice instantaneously on the other side of the world?

However, you are treading on very thin ice when you screw Our Mother. She will chew you up and spit you out just for the fun of it.

Thinking big is one thing. This sound like the idea of a 5 yr old. "we'll build a giant wall to keep out the tornados and monsters and cover it with spikes and wire and tigers".
Hell, we can't even build a 20 or 30 ft wall on our southern border. And that would be useful.
