Eduardo Gold has come up with an idea of painting the peaks of the Andes, Peru as an attempt to combat climate change. The project is funded by the World Bank and will cost £135,000.

Mr. Gold uses a special eco-friendly mix of lime, industrial egg white and water to paint the peaks of mountains. Such a method of painting has been used since colonial rule in Peru. Some scientists believe that Mr. Gold's method may be helpful in lowering global temperatures by reflecting the heat back into the air.
