The spraying of trillions of tonnes of fake snow-it may sound like something cooked up by a writer who wrote about the year 2150, according to a new study, you can turn to global sea rise as well as the protection of the coastal towns and cities.

This is kind of a huge feat of geo-engineering, would require the energy of more than 12,000 wind turbines to provide power for the huge sea water pumps and snow-making equipment, according to the researchers.

However, the researchers do not argue that the humanity of this approach, but they note that there is a “state” shows the dramatic threat posed to the world from climate change-related sea-level rise.

A range of numerous studies have shown that an increase in the level of the sea, as a result of the melting of the glaciers and the changing climate could imperil cities and towns all over the world in the second half of this century and beyond.

While it is not known whether or not the whole of the west Antarctic ice sheet melts, the scientists have speculated that the sea level will rise, and on the basis of what they had during the previous much warmer periods in the winter.

“As scientists, we feel it is our duty to inform society about each of the possible options to face the issues,” Professor Anders Levermann at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany, who led the study, told The Guardian. “As incredible as [the proposal] would seem to be, in order to avoid an unknown risk, the human race would be able to create an exceptional amount of effort.”

The researchers of the uses of computer models in order to determine the amount of water that would be pumped from the sea to the summit of the antarctic ice sheet and is then sprayed as a snow, in order to stabilize it. The study, which was published in the journal of the Science of the times.

The enormous effort it would require 74 billion tons of water, and it would be a hefty price tag, as well.

David Vaughan, director of science at the British Antarctic Survey, and is not part of the study, told the British publication: “the Scientists have an important role to play in the tests, and the challenging climate of the corrections’. I think that Levermann and colleagues from the surface of the cord, as well, questioning and challenging of this idea, without making them its most ardent supporters. Indeed, they are careful to point out the seriousness of the side effects.”
