Could refreezing the north and south poles reverse global warming?



Global warming can be reversed by refreezing the poles, according to new research.

Blocking the sun would restore Earth's ice 'caps' at the north and south - maintaining weather systems.

The ambitious idea sounds like a crazy plot from a sci-fi blockbuster - but it is "both feasible and remarkably cheap," researchers claim.


Aircraft would fly over the Arctic and Antarctic spraying particles - known as a stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI).

They combat greenhouse gases by dimming starlight - cooling the whole planet, say the US team.

The first author Professor Wake Smith, of Yale University: "It would seek to abate climate change by deflecting back into space a small fraction of the incoming solar radiation."

The study found it would only have to be done in the sub-polar regions. Previous proposals have suggested using the technique across the planet.

It would quickly envelop the poles and may arrest or reverse ice and permafrost melt at high latitudes - stopping sea level rise..

What could possibly go wrong. It's time for humans to admit we aren't powerful enough to control the climate

30 years ago I said that if global warming were even true we had 100 years and technology would solve it in plenty of time. And here we are.

Or we could attach heavy titanium chains to two rockets with atlas boosters and each of the poles and re-align the planet.

If we would have just listened to this man, we wouldn’t be in this situation right now.

I don’t understand why we don’t just break out all the aerosol hairspray and underarm
Deodorant and open that hole back up in the ozone.

Nuking the sun is the answer. It’s an enemy of our planet at this point.

Care to make a case? I said that 30 years ago I stated that even if global warming were true we had plenty of time for technology to save the situation. To that, you say I’m a moron. Well, to what part of that do you disagree?

Do you think we are in imminent peril from global warming?
