Policy Implications of Greenhouse Warming: Mitigation, Adaptation, and the Science Base (1992)

Let us begin on page 459 of the National Academy of Sciences 1992 paper discussing geoengineering to mitigate the rapid rise of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere...

Cloud stimulation by provision of cloud condensation nuclei appears to be a feasible and low-cost option capable of being used to mitigate any quantity of CO 2 equivalent per year. Details of the cloud physics, verification of the amount of CCN to be added for a particular degree of mitigation, and the possible acid rain or other effects of adding CCN over the oceans need to be investigated before such system is put to use. Once a decision has been made, the system could be mobilized and begin to operate in a year or so, and mitigation effects would be immediate. If the system were stopped, the mitigation effect would presumably cease very rapidly, within days or weeks, as extra CCN were removed by rain and drizzle.
