To Dam Arctic Current And Change Climate Of Labrador And All New England, Is Plan T. JOHN. N. B., Aug. .New foundland is con temp 1 a t in g changing its climate. The Impossi ble of a decade ago is the everyday affair of today, so why shouldn't a country change Its climate if it doesn't like It? The climate of Newfoundland would be changed If a breakwater were built across the stratis ox tfcueisie oe- tween the island and the mainland and the cold Labrador current were shunted out into the. Atlantic Ocean. Such a dam is being seriously con sidereL It would cost an immense sum of monen but engineers say It prerents few difficulties. The Labrador current at present is the chief factor in molding the cli mate not only of New Foundland. out of the maritime provinces of Can ada and of New England. Coming down from the Artie Ocean It pours through the Stratis of Belle Island and circulating around its cold flood the coasts of Nedfoandland, Quebes. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Then passing through Cabot Strait, It turns south and sweeps along New England. Its strong southward, fly acts as a cold wedge which pries the Gulf stream away from all these, coasts and shunts that ocean river bearing the warmth of the tropics off northeastward across the ocean.
