Leddies Ecological Institute calls for a simple global warming solution: - Try the impossible

29 March 2006, LEI has first called for impossible ideas to help stop global warming Categories include:
- Underpinning and closing the ozone hole with swarms of gaseous nano-bots.
- Resalinating the Gulf Current and rebuilding the polar ice caps with swarms of bio-bots.

Impossible is not an option


Do what so many have done before with success. It happened before from the Suez Canal to launching people to the Moon. Attempt the impossible.

Aside very long term research into alternative and renewable primaries we might need impossible ideas placed in the practical arena to help start stopping global warming today.

We need to actively heal the ozone hole for obvious reasons. Everybody and her uncle know this. (Too much sun gets through for Earth to be able to reflect back enough into outer space.) Yes we produce a wee bit of CO2 too, but we can reduce that. Now, we just might need to re-salinate the Gulf Current as well.

Imagine a scorching summer day in your car when your air-conditioner suddenly starts playing up. You knew it was leaking just a bit, so you kept putting the thing off. Your first idea now of course, is to get it fixed fast.

Ocean currents act as air-conditioners of Earth and enough salt is what keeps them going. But the salty stream of the Gulf Current is taking too much water from the polar ice cap that is leaking 'just a bit' fresh-water. This dilutes it to the point where the whole thing may start playing up. If it slows down too much it may forget to bring warm moist to Northern Europe.

First, it will indeed be very hot in your car...Then, as winter comes, it might turn quite cold there if your trusted heater decides to abandon you as well.

LEI is a private initiative run under the banner of the popular Web resource Fun-LED-Light.com dedicated to the immense contribution that next generation lighting is making to a sustainable future.
