Ice911: Cool solutions for an overheated world


Global climate change is occurring.  Are there any short-term yet reversible measures we can take to reduce future ecological damage while longer-term solutions are researched and developed? 

Enter Ice911:

Ice911 is one such project, aimed at slowing down the melt of polar and glacial ice using ecologically friendly materials.  These materials are designed and used in a way that allows them to later be removed if desired.  These are important features to avoid any unintended ecological impacts.

Ice911 is an engineering approach to reduce the melting of the ice.  It is a solution that can be rapidly implemented.  It has the potential to slow down the melt, provide interim mammal habitat, and perhaps even rebuild the ice. …
