Can geoengineering save the world's ice?

from Scientific American

A chunk of ice the size of downtown Manhattan fell off the Jakobshavn Glacier in Greenland on Aug. 16, the fastest moving ice sheet in the world at present. As it melts, the glacier calves off icebergs and dumps freshwater into the North Atlantic at a rapid clip, a clip that has doubled in recent years.

Though this iceberg may be one of the biggest ever calved from Jakobshavn, the Greenland glacier is not unique in melting down. Arctic sea ice dwindles and glaciers atop mountains in more temperate and even tropical lands retreat. The meltdown of west Antarctica could raise sea levels around the world by more than three meters. more
