The issue isnít how to deal with rising sea levels, but how to prevent the ice caps from melting in the first place. If the depleted ozone above the North Pole is not protecting the ice caps from the Sun, then a man-made defence is required. Perhaps reflective structures could be build over the ice caps, bouncing the Sunís rays back into the atmosphere. Of course, this would be expensive but it would be a one-off, long-term solution and it would look really cool as well. Surely this is a better solution than clogging up our deserts with buckets of water?
