Restoring Arctic sea ice
to counter global warming
We are committed to halting the rapid disappearance of Arctic sea ice, which serves as the world’s refrigerator by reflecting the sun’s heat back into space through its white ice sheets.

NASA: Annual Arctic sea ice development
Arctic ice is melting rapidly and irreversibly, but we can do something about it
Global warming has reduced the Arctic sea ice volume already by 75% over the last 40 years, and even in the most optimistic carbon emissions reduction scenarios, the Arctic sea is expected to experience ice-free summers as early as the thirties.
This will further accelerate the climate crisis and start a series of devastating feedbacks, since the Arctic sea ice functions as the earth’s refrigerator by reflecting the sun’s heat back into space.
We aim to restore the Arctic ice as heat shield by thickening the ice in winter through pumping sea water on top of it in strategically chosen locations across the Arctic Sea.
A group of scientists proposed a simple solution to save the Arctic ice.
engineering with nature
Working with nature, rather than against it, is in most cases the best way to accomplish huge projects.
Involving local communities
Engagement with local indigenous communities will be crucial for a variety of reasons.
Amsterdam, 18th of October 2023 CarbonFix, an organization that fights climate change by supporting innovations with great potential to reduce or capture carbon emissions, is pleased to announce financial support for Arctic Reflections, an initiative with an...
While restoring Arctic ice cannot replace the urgently needed reduction of carbon emissions, it is a crucial measure to avert the devastating feedback loops that come with Arctic sea ice loss.
