The project, which is being worked on by rival US and UK scientists, would see 1,900 wind-powered ships ply the oceans sucking up seawater and spraying minuscule droplets of it out through tall funnels to create large white clouds. —‘Cloud ship’ scheme to deflect the sun’s rays is favourite to cut global warming, Telegraph
Now, this is supposed to be a good thing to counteract global warming. Stick them off in the Pacific far from shore to reduce the effect on continental rainfall, and let satellites direct them where they are most effective.
