How much? I did a few quick calculations, thats like 77000 cubic kilometers of material up there, how do intend on getting it all up there?
You only get dust from the affected area on the ground with a nuke, and even so, there isn't that much.

You should always be open to new evidence and viewpoints.
Personally I still see much evidence to support mans contributions to CC.

Let's assume this works... and it lowered temps like you're saying. It's only temporary.
It would have to be a cycle as it's doing nothing but masking the root of the cause.

I like the idea.

Sounds like a good plan.

I believe people are forgetting that the fallout from said nukes will spread worldwide and will undoubtedly be worse than even the most apocalyptic AGW views.

Great Idea! once we've destroyed half the world with that, we can pour millions of gallons of bleach into the rivers and oceans to make the water nice and clean!

For the most part I believe that my plan leaves much of the upper northern hemisphere untouched. Undoubtly there will be radioactive hotspots, but most of those will be in wastelands in the southern hemispehere and lower northern hemisphere (Below the tropic of cancer). Except for the site in mongolia.
If all goes acording to plan most of the dust dispertion should take place far above the surface of the earth near the Statosphere, just outside of the troposphere. I really don't think fallout will be as bad as you all fear for the people in the far northern hemisphere.

What about the life in the blast zones? What about that which will receive deadly fallout? What about the dimming and cold that will disrupt ecosystems and plant growth?
Many species appear to be doing well in this undisturbed but deadly forest. Wild boar, elk, deer, bison, lynx, and wolves have all established populations in the Chernobyl accident exclusion zone, where there are virtually no people. Birds have migrated back into the zone and are breeding there. Many onlookers feel that nature is recovering, cleaning up the mess.
... the radioactive cloud may have a silver lining. Recent studies suggest that the 19-mile (30-kilometer) "exclusion zone" set up around the reactor has turned into a wildlife haven.
Plants and trees have sprung back to life, and rare species, such as lynx, Przewalski's horses, and eagle owls, are thriving where most humans fear to tread.
Even the site of the explosion seems to be bursting with life.
In the long run I believe that any radioactive fallout may prove to be benificial by allowing species to mutate and adapt faster than normal.
However, the affect of rising sea levels and changing weather patterns will cause havoc due to global warming.
Countering global warming, by using nuclear induced winter will prove to be more benifical in the long run by maintaining current global tempertures.
