Some say it's ironic, because when we were "cleaning up" the air in the sixties (Clean Air Act), our removal of the chemical soot actually worsened the global warming problems because it was "screening" some of the incoming solar radiation, but since we neglected to get rid of the CO2 also, this "screening" was removed, thus increasing the incoming power flux.
I'm not so sure because the soot would probably just have absorbed incoming and outgoing heat and shed it to the rest of the air.
When something is perfectly reflected (like light into a mirror), it delivers twice the momentum (and 4 times the energy, E = p^2/2m) as when it is absorbed. Any attempt to "screen" out radiation with air chemicals will just double the energy deposited in the air after the reflector molecules are accelerated and shed their energy to neighboring molecules. Absorbing chemicals will only add half as much energy to the air.
How is this "chemtrail" cancelation supposed to work. If its trying to increase screening, I don't have much hope for it. If its trying to react the chemicals with existing greenhouse molecules to precipitate them out, it might work.
