silver linings for clouds

drop large sheets of silver foil onto clouds from planes
  [vote for,

most clouds are polluted with lead & other such poisonous nasties instead of the lovely silver linings that we have been promised since childhood.

not only would these clouds look staggering beautiful but might reflect some heat and brighten up a cold depressing sky.

       Solar linings, I love this idea, I'm sure not all clouds have them, but when they do , wow, they would be spectacular. Especially on a frosty full moon.

       How po-etic!

You've got a little problem with gravity to figure out.

Oh, then there's airplanes.

How about seeding clouds with that glow-in-the-dark stuff, so they absorb solar energy during the day, and glow eerily at night (to the consternation of astronomers everywhere).

       Why stop at silver? (See link)

       phoenix, lovely idea - I did not search under culture, as this is an attempted weather idea.

       Cost is the biggest demon eh? Perhapse logos are the answer. Nike can put their swoosh on the cloud if they first clean it up. Kind of like an "Adopt A Cloud" project.
