You are both missing the point I was trying to make. His movie stated (like it was a "Scientific Fact") that the sunlight was reflected back into space CAUSING "Global Dimming" a 25% reduction in the amount of sunlight that got through to the earth's surface. (Really! They measured a 25% decrease and they said that now that we are reducing the pollution in the air, "Global Warming" is going to skyrocket. That it is going to cause the Rain forests to catch on fire, etc...) What I was trying to point out is that those spherical raindrops merely scattered the sunlight, it only reflected a tiny amount. That sunlight is still captured by the atmosphere, probably doing more good by heating the other raindrops and making them smaller (and perhaps causing the droughts they are trying to diagnose.)
