I didn’t know designers learned much Physics… These designers must have slept in the class when they learned about Thermodynamics.
The only way to restore the polar ecosystem is to stop emissions to air and sea, wait and see if we have come to the point of no return or not.
In other words… Stop the use of fossil fuel and also the production and use of plastic, and teach people waste handling all over the world.
The meltdown of ice in the Arctic and Antarctic goes so fast it is hard to believe. The surface on the ice should be white, and reflect the energy from the sun back into space, but it is grey now from the dust of combustion engines and smoke from factories. Even a designer should know the fact that white reflect and any color transfer light to heat. In this context it means meltdown of ice and snow.
Last summer ice from Greenland glaziers contributed to 2.2 mm sea level rise all over the world. The huge Antarctic meltdown is not calibrated yet because the season is not over. It must be 10 to 50 fold the Greenland meltdown due to the difference in volume, as observed in tide floods all over the northern Europe this winter, and will be when the next storm hits your area.
