If it's a VW, it's the water pump. For the temp gauge to read properly, it must have LIQUID coolant flowing over it. Steam will not provide a proper reading. If there's a coolant leak, it could produce a fluctuating reading. If you're losing coolant but not finding coolant puddling under your car, then the leak is not just a hose or line. It could be a manifold gasket or something. That ain't good. I recently ditched an old car because of that exact problem.

What makes evaporation and condensation alike?

Evaporation and Condensation are based upon the energy in the water molecules. If the water temperature (vapor) is above the surface temperature, it will evaporate. If the water temperature (vapor) is below the surface temperature it will condense. Evaporation and condensation are happening at the same time. We add the term "Net" at the beginning to show which is happening at a greater rate. The temperature at which there is net condensation is referred to as dew point.

Why can't we stop hurricanes?

We actually can. People have created structures/things that can prevent it from happening. Since hurricanes/cyclones/typhoons happen due to the temperature of the water and air, people have tried to create things that can effect the temperature, and prevent these natural disasters from happening. Obviously, this will also affect fish and the life in the ocean.
