um... this might be a stupid question, but wouldn't the ring's mess with the Earth's temperature by reflecting more sunlight onto it... and what about the shadow at the equator, wouldn't that mess with the temperature too?

So beautiful. If it made the world a little bit cooler, wouldn't that knock of global warming for a few years?

It seems plausible that the additional shadow would cool the earth, but there would also be additional sunlight reflected off the rings would there not. We would have one hemisphere cooler an the other hotter . We may not freeze but I imagine it would make for WILD weather.

>>matt
why the poles? they would be the only areas unaffected by the shadow.

It might not be so bad, because they are transparent. saturn's rings are made up of dust and small rocks. light and heat can pass through it, like our ozone layer. It'd probably just make the earth a bit cooler but not by much.

either way it's a pretty idea, but no sense fretting over cause it'll never happen

"And yes, the shadow caused by it would have been detrimental to the Earth's climate, especially in the region where the shadow fell."

I'd be interested to see how the rings shadow did fall and what impact it did have. Presumably the greatest impact would be on the polar areas.

As soon as we get this climate change stuff sorted we need to start thinking about pimping up our planet.

There was an old article in either Discover or Scientific American magazine where they were discussing the the Earth did have a temporary ring (maybe for a couple hundred thousands years) after the asteroid impact that would have wiped out the dinosaurs. And yes, the shadow caused by it would have been detrimental to the Earth's climate, especially in the region where the shadow fell.
