Absolutely ATS rocks!
(Literally on Friday night into saturday morning on ATS Live
After Midnight show -
catch it every week I love it!)
Thank you to Skeptic Overlord and all the ATS crew!
Here is some more top shelf geoengineering info:

Now we no part of the mission of the secretive new UAV shuttle that the air force has recently launched:
In 2025, uninhabited aerospace vehicles (UAV) are routinely used for weather-modification operations.
Method. Put the aerosols in the jet fuel or directly injected them into the hot exhaust, either way they come out in the contrails (full details are

Greenhouse gases and cirrus clouds regulate outgoing longwave radiation (OLR) and cirrus cloud coverage is predicted to be sensitive to the ice fall
speed which depends on ice crystal size. The higher the cirrus, the greater their impact is on OLR. Thus by changing ice crystal size in the coldest
cirrus, OLR and climate might be modified. Fortunately the coldest cirrus have the highest ice supersaturation due to the dominance of homogeneous
freezing nucleation. Seeding such cirrus with very efficient heterogeneous ice nuclei should produce larger ice crystals due to vapor competition
effects, thus increasing OLR and surface cooling. Preliminary estimates of this global net cloud forcing are more negative than −2.8 W m−2 and
could neutralize the radiative forcing due to a CO2 doubling (3.7 W m−2). A potential delivery mechanism for the seeding material is
already in place: the airline industry. Since seeding aerosol residence times in the troposphere are relatively short, the climate might
return to its normal state within months after stopping the geoengineering experiment. The main known drawback to this approach is that it would not
stop ocean acidification. It does not have many of the drawbacks that stratospheric injection of sulfur species has.
This paper and Video have many hard core science papers on the subject such as the two listed above. The video is a lecture by an aerospace engineer.
