To Warm Artie Region
Carrol Livington Hiker, a New York
engineer, proposes to change the cli
mate or the whola Atlantic Coast of
North America, and to alter een the
solar inclination of the earth. His
plan is to send the great heat-hearing
gulf stream, unchilled, into the very
heart of the Arctic. The warm cur
rent, he says, would melt the frozen
polar seas, and by this substitution of
water for ice he believes the earth
would swing around a hit on its polar
axis and present to the more direct
rays of the sun the regions which are
now practically uninhabitable for
