Geoengineering Monitor: Using ship wakes to fight climate change? Time to anchor climate research to common sense

„An article published in January by the Journal of Geophysical Research and covered briefly in Nature describes how brightening and extending the lives of ship wakes can be used to alter the albedo of the oceans, and cool global temperatures. It adds ship wakes to a growing list of Solar Radiation Management techniques. […] The most obvious flaw is that the study doesn’t mention what these surfactants could be, or what their effect on the oceans would be.“
