Orbital Snow Plough

Exciting news for shareholders of JCB, the multinational manufacturer of construction equipment, with the announcement that the company has been awarded the contract to build the International Orbital Snow Plough. The 'Space Plough' as it is popularly known, was first proposed in the late eighties as a way of manipulating weather by shunting clouds around in the upper atmosphere. In particular it is designed to move snow clouds that have drifted down into lower latitudes, pushing them back to the North Pole where than sort of thing is tolerated.

Initial plans to build the plough were shelved when funding was redirected to an alternative scheme to construct a series of satellite de-icers, but concerns about aerosol propellants could not be overcome. Now a joint international venture has resurrected the Space Plough idea and, if successful, hopes to raise further funding to erect a geo-stationary windbreak over Greenland.
