How much power does the flapping of the butterfly actually have?

The classic image of the small hurricane-causing butterfly in the jungle is well known, but is it also true?

The principle of the so-called butterfly effect, i.e. the tiny cause that can have a supra-regional effect, should not be up for debate - but its namesake: user Ned23 is the winner of the week and wonders what the real power that a small butterfly has in the vast expanse of the jungle: "They say: 'The flapping of a butterfly's wings in the Amazon jungle can trigger severe storms in distant Asia.' As a parable for the chaos theory and the principles behind it, the picture of the fluttering insect is very helpful, but is it also true? Could a single butterfly actually trigger a whole hurricane? Or aren't the chaos theorists exaggerating a little? )
