1,500 ships to fight climate change?

According to UK and U.S. researchers, it should be possible to fight the global warming effects associated with an increase of dioxide levels by using autonomous cloud-seeding ships to spray salt water into the air.

Good, ok, they are scientist. But it looks to me as science fiction. Maybe it will work, but... I believe there will be great side effects from this.

A question. Can someone tell e how these ships are propeled and how these turbines for the water are propelled?

They still discusing the idea, when and if they decide to make it reality then i assume they resolve the "minor" technicalities. ;D

This would be like taking aspirins for the headache rather than stop hitting your head with the hammer. I hope they will find a more elegant more efficient and more eco-friendly solution.

This WILL happen and maybe too fast.
This actually happens every some thousands years. it happened before, it will happen again. It may be a global flood, a comet, a global melt down, anything.

I would not call the movement of a ship "minor technicality". It is not a bicycle. It is a ship, and plus it has those huge hoses that they also need a respectable amount of power to operate.

He is talking about the far future that we will be able to have more efficient devices to produce power from sun or wind...

Such a HUGE ship with sails? It would be interesting to see it.

Why sails and wait for wind to blow? A couple of hundred rowers and a whip will do the job.  ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D
