White roof local cooling may also affect energy use, thus emissions, a factor not accounted for here. As such, conclusions here regarding white roofs apply only to the assumptions made.
If we were to spray an area to cool things down, which do you think would make the most impact, spraying over the oceans, or spraying over a desert in California?
We shouldn't be spraying over anything. What I find most frustrating is the fact that industries continue to pollute and destroy with impunity, and the rest of us are left to figure out how to save ourselves and the planet from their exploits. WTH?
Spraying oxides into the atmosphere, only to return to the surface is asinine.

We do agree though, both sides of this particular topic do tend to speak in absolute terms that neither side can, by definition, possibly have to work with.
Not so sure about that. Seems like one side says it's definitely going on but doesn't present any evidence (despite their protestations) to show it is, and the other side says yes proposals exist and yes it is possible but we've seen no evidence that shows it is going on.
