Climate tech fixes urged for freezing methane

A well-known UK engineer is signifying building cloud-whitening towers in the Faroe Islands as a technical fix for warming crossways the Arctic. Within an idea first planned by US physicist John Latham, the fine droplets of salt water provide nucleus approximately which water vapor can concentrate. Favoured locations would be the Faroes and islands in the Bering Strait. Towers would be constructed, simplified versions of what has been intended for ships.
Methane is a much stronger greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, although it does not most recent as long in the air. Abrupt methane releases from ice-covered regions may have played a main role in two events, 55 and 251 million years ago, that extinguished a lot of the life then on Earth. Depending on the mass and position, Prof Salter supposed that in the sort of 100 towers would be wanted to counteract Arctic warming.
