There is a gigantic greenhouse effect on Venus which brings its surface temperature to as high as 470°C. The inferno on the second planet of the Solar System would be all the more fiery if clouds of concentrated sulfuric acid did not reflect some of the solar energy. How about if we take inspiration of this model to fight the greenhouse effect on Earth?
