All geo-engineers have been inspired by the pioneering work of James Lovelock. Key suggestions about spray generation are due to Lowell Wood and Tom Stevenson. NASA and the ISCCP have been extremely generous with information and patient in explaining how we can use it. Their continued work on understanding and protecting the home planet has earned respect and admiration from many countries round the world. Funding for work on Cloudia was provided by the Discovery Channel and organized by Impossible Pictures. The National Center for Atmospheric Research is sponsored by the National Science Foundation. Any opinions, findings and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this chapter are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
