1) Paint Your Roof White: Did you ever think that maybe your next step in your climate change awareness would be to crawl up onto the top of your house to paint your roof white? Or maybe to get your whole neighbourhood together on a big white roof painting party? Well, interestingly enough if everyone on the planet painted their roofs white it is believed by scientists that the global temperature would drop back down to the level that it was 100 years back. I guess we better grab our paintbrushes and the low VOC paint
2) Plant Shiny Trees: If you are not up for the painting challenge, perhaps you would prefer to plant some shiny trees in the front yard! Another proposal to cut down the absorption of heat on the planet and to repel the sunshine back up to space. Genetically engineered shiny trees. Decorate the front yard for the holidays, all year long. Apparently Dolly and the quest for square watermelons was only the beginning of genetic engineering feats. More research on this should be out soon but apparently they already have soy crops that are more reflective.
3) Wrap Up Antarctica in a Blanket: Well if we can't slow down all of the CO2's we are putting in the air, we are just not up for switching to electric cars and decreasing our pollution...scientists may have come up with a way to save us after all. Covering up entire glaciers with blankets...well giant sheets of a material - Ice Protector - that can surround the glaciers and protect them from the heat. A new form of sunscreen as they say. Keeps in the cold, deflects off the heat and slows down all that melting and cracking that is going on. Clever, but at $12 million per square mile we might have to save a lot of our pennies to make that idea fly.
