Has anyone looked into floating translucent sun shades? I imagine that there would be some intelligent way of doing it. Float them over Phoenix whenever it reaches 100 and we would use the air conditioner less. Then, I guess, float them down to South America!
Well, there's the Old Man River project from 1971


And the U.S. Marine Corps experimented with air deliverability.
