Experts say that mankind came as close as possible to the time that can be crossed the point of no return on this issue. If the ice sheet melts, the global sea level to rise three metres under water and some will leave new York, Shanghai and Tokyo.

According to the researchers, the only way to save the ice can at least 7,4 trillion tons of artificial snow. It will need to be sprayed for 10 years, so he compacted and pressed the glacier to the underlying rock.

While technically feasible such a plan is extremely difficult. You will need about 12 thousand wind turbines, but they will have a devastating impact on the ecosystem. Therefore, the best solution remains the reduction of greenhouse gases.

Earlier it was reported that in Alaska, the burning of the forest because of the record heat. The Correspondent also wrote that scientists have predicted global catastrophe because of the volcano.
