The idea behind the marine cloud-brightening (MCB) geoengineering technique is that seeding marine stratocumulus clouds with copious quantities of roughly monodisperse sub-micrometre sea water particles might significantly enhance the cloud droplet number concentration, and thereby the cloud albedo and possibly longevity. This would produce a cooling, which… (More)
It seems that one of the effects of global warming is to increase rainfall in some parts of the world while reducing it in others. With the growth in demand for water the effects of any reduction on political stability and human happiness are profound. Several regions in the Mediterranean are vulnerable. The amounts of energy involved in weather systems are… (More)
