Couldn't Make This Stuff Up...

"An inventor has set out to paint the peaks of the Andes white in an attempt to combat the effects of climate change. By painting the mountains, Eduardo Gold hopes to replicate the effect of Andean glaciers, which reflect back sunlight and hence heat back through the atmosphere.

It is hoped the project will slow the melting of the glaciers.

Four workmen have been given the task of painting three peaks, starting with Peru's Chalon Sombrero peak, which lies 4,756 metres above sea level..." (source)

It would seem that Eduardo Gold doesn't realize Micahel Mann's hockey stick graph was discredited along with the bulk of the IPCC's 'data.' But regardless, I guess the faux snow has a nice aesthetic touch...
