Could this incredible engineering project save the polar ice caps?

"While changing human behavior and reducing carbon emissions offer long-term solutions to human contributions to climate change, American architect Derek Pirozzi wants to see an immediate solution for saving the polar ice caps. He’s proposed the Polar Umbrella, a buoyant super-structure that would both protect and replenish Arctic ice.”
