Iceberg-making project will RE-Freeze The Arctic!

Re-iceberg-isation Hexagonal Tubular Ice Arctic

From the building of hight towers to establishing islands from stones and sands, many scientists and urbanization planners recommend clear prepositions in order to protect the global warming and the rising of water volume because of the world climate change.

Until now Indonesian Designers are the most advanced ideas that maybe the unusual bold plan appears lately where they propose to building ice-making ships which can be used for creating ice again while diving use cold water then rise up in the form of hexagons of icebergs that are pop out in order to replace the melting floes.
the creators of the submersible iceberg factory said: “Sea level rise due to melting ice should not only be responded [to] with defensive solutions”.

In a recent design competition held by the Association of Siamese Architects. it shows the idea in an animated short describing the ice-making ships.
the short video shows the ships how its diving under the ocean in order to fill the shape with water in a hexagonal form while its desalination system cleans the water and removes the salt after that with a giant freezing machine attached to the ship in some sorts of temperatures freezes the clean water creating a the six-sided cubes that will be floating away while starts up the process over again.
The Ice-making ship is predicted in a continues operations could create about 25-meter-surface of small ice cubes willing to generates giant ice.

according to the lead designer of the project “Faris Rajak Kotahatuhaha” said the design could be a great complement to continuous struggles to restrict discharges.

he added: “To stop global warming, of course, we still have to reduce carbon emissions throughout the world.”

Michael Mann, a professor of atmospheric sciences at Penn State, said :“It’s like trying to save the sandcastle you built at the beach using a dixie cup as the tide comes in,” of the iceberg-making project.

Mark Serreze, director of the University of Colorado’s National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, He called the project “very interesting” but said in a discussion with “NBC News”. it raised more questions than it answered.

“What are you going to do, put out a flotilla of 10,000 submarines?” he said. “Who’s going to build them and how much energy does it take, and how are the submarines powered?” And unless they’re powered by wind or another clean energy source, he added, the submarines would need to burn fossil fuels, releasing even more planet-warming greenhouse gases into the air.”

“If the icebergs were big enough, they might help curb sea level rise indirectly by reflecting more of the solar radiation that raises global temperatures.” But Serreze said “creating the bergs wouldn’t lower sea levels directly if they remained in the water; they’d have to wind up on land to reduce the volume of the oceans.”

More important, Serreze said, “rebuilding sea ice would do nothing to address the greenhouse gas emissions that are the root cause of climate change.”

Serreze voiced similar concerns about other recent proposals for geoengineering the environment to mitigate the effects of climate change, including everything from spraying sunlight-blocking aerosols into the atmosphere to deploying millions of wind-powered pumps to spread seawater over the planet’s northernmost reaches.
