To Change Climate With Gulf
An amazing plan for changing the
entire climate of tho Atlantic Coast ot
North America, by deflecting tho great
hcat-boaring Gulf Stream from its
course and sending it more directly
Into tho nrtlo region, has been suggest
ed by an onglneer of Now York. The
plan involves tho building of wall,
200 miles In length, eastward from the
coastof Newfoundland, which structure
would turn the cold Labrador current
eastward until it encountered the
north-bound Gulf Stream In deep wa
tor. By this process It Is claimed that
the larger portion of tho o Id stream
would flow under tho warm current and
tho ice-laden upper part would be
turned northward again instead of con
tinuing south. From tho March Pop
