Submarines collecting and freezing sea water will be used to stop the melting glaciers in the Arctic Ocean.
In the past several decades, eternal glaciers have lost a significant part of the ice covering them, putting many species of animals at risk. If this process is not stopped soon enough, the threat might also affect humans.
A group of scientists and architects have recently proposed a project to restore the melting glaciers. They have suggested the development of special submarines which will filter water and freeze it again into small hexagonal shapes. Each of them will require 2027 cubic meters of water. These new pieces of ice will be attached to the glaciers.
At present, the project is at an early stage of development, and its creators admit that many details are still unclear. First of all, it does not solve the issue of global warming, simply fighting its consequences. Secondly, these submarines will use an enormous amount of energy, and its source has not been specified.
