So I was looking at how much water it would require for an adequate radiation shield for space travel and found the following chart.

Hint: look at the material in the middle of the list.

Now that France is totally disturbed by a heat wave, the Newspaper Le Monde is publishing an article saying that climate change is full of opportunities.

« Non seulement la planète ne se porte pas moins bien qu’hier, mais nous avons désormais les moyens de réparer ce qui va mal »

It's probably one of the best way to make this look ridiculous.

It must have been an awesome test. How many Mars bars it took to complete measurements?

I debated where to post this link. I think here is best... Another dopey idea to entertain us, and distract from the real work of reducing CO2.

Seems this idea won some kind of prize...(!) Refreeze the arctic using large 'submarine-like' floating ice-cube machines. I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Same principle as cooling your house by leaving the refrigerator door open.

“There are three classes of people: those who see. Those who see when they are shown. Those who do not see.” ― Leonardo da Vinci

Insensible before the wave so soon released by callous fate. Affected most, they understand the least, and understanding, when it comes, invariably arrives too late
