Haze comes, government in tizzy

From post: “What if we set up a curtain of water to the west of Singapore, such that the smoke-filled air flow from Sumatra gets washed before it reaches us? [...] then rise to about 1,000 metres at which altitude they spray down a fine mist of water.” At 1 km altitude, the proposed fine mist of seawater will completely evaporate before it gets to “wash” the smoke-laden, fast-moving monsoon-driven air. And the sea salt particles would just fall back to the sea. This is not just because of the heat of the smoke haze, but more importantly, due to compressional heating inherent within the troposphere (0 – 14 km altitude). The latter action is responsible for the meteorological phenomenon of virga — ie. precipitation (arising from mid-altitude clouds 2 – 4.5 km) that quickly evaporates before even reaching the lower troposphere. On the other hand, if the seawater mist is spray...
