Still Waters Posted September 15, 2022 #1 Share Posted September 15, 2022 (IP: Staff) · Scientists have outlined a controversial plan to refreeze the North and South Poles, and dial down the global thermostat. They say high-flying jets could spray microscopic aerosol particles into the atmosphere to reflect sunlight and cool the melting icecaps. Around 175,000 flights a year would be needed, releasing millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide. But a former UK chief scientist backed the plans, telling Sky News that polar warming is now critical - and refreezing the ice could hold back the rise in global sea levels. The new study was led by Wake Smith from Yale University in the United States. https://news.sky.com/story/scientists-propose-controversial-plan-to-refreeze-north-and-south-poles-by-spraying-sulphur-dioxide-into-atmosphere-12697769 1 6 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
