Ice in the arctic is rapidly decreasing as global warming is at its alarming rate. Some scientists have proposed to refreeze the arctic and that move will cost $500 billion.
Physicist Steven Desch and his team have a plan to solve the problem. Their solution is to build wind-powered pumps over the Arctic ice cap. His team is from the Arizona State University and they have laid it all out. According to The Guardian, the pumps will be used during winter. They would be pumping out water to the surface of the ice, and the water will freeze.
The method, which will cost $500 billion, will create 10 million pimps and it would add one meter of ice to the Arctic's two to three meters melting ice caps. Steven Desch said in a newspaper interview that thicker ice would be great as it would last longer. Melting of ice caps during the summer will no longer be a problem because of the extra ice the pumps will give.
