Giant cooling rotors aim to breathe new life into Great Barrier Reef – The Times

Eight of the solar-powered devices will be placed over a section of the reef near Cairns in Australia’s far north.

Huge rotating pumps will be installed in the Coral Sea in an attempt to save Australia’s Great Barrier Reef from climate change by cooling it.

It is hoped that they can ward off bleaching that has either damaged or killed coral on swathes of the 2,300km long reef, the world’s largest living thing.
