Academic Proposes Wind Turbines to Fight Climate Change
A researcher at the University of Alberta has come up an odd scheme to reduce the effects of global warming - one that involves 8,100 barges equipped with wind turbines pumping water to produce more Arctic ice.
Dr. Peter Flynn, who holds the Poole Chair in Management for Engineers, suggested the unusual plan as a last resort to deal with one of the strangest consequences of climate change: it could actually plunge Europe into a deep freeze.
That's because a warming climate has weakened the Gulf Stream, a current that works like a giant conveyor belt, pulling warm water from the south Atlantic into the Greenland Sea, where it cools and sinks into the deep.
