Restoring Arctic sea ice to counter global warming


Global warming has reduced the Arctic sea ice volume already by 75% over the last 40 years, and even in the most optimistic carbon emissions reduction scenarios, the Arctic sea is expected to experience ice-free summers as early as the thirties.
This will further accelerate the climate crisis and start a series of devastating feedbacks, since the Arctic sea ice functions as the earth’s refrigerator by reflecting the sun’s heat back into space.
We aim to restore the Arctic ice as heat shield by thickening the ice in winter through pumping sea water on top of it in strategically chosen locations across the Arctic Sea.
