I don't have personal experience with smudge pots but had read about the man-made cloud blanket effect long ago. Here is an entry at Encyclopedia Britannica
: smudge pot device - usually an oil container with some crude oil burning in the bottom, used in fruit orchards, especially citrus groves, to provide protection against frost. The smoke serves as a blanket to reduce heat losses due to outgoing radiation. Because of the air pollution they generate smudge pots have been generally supplanted by other means of frost protection, such as smokeless burners using natural gas.

(Leftism is powered by the evil force of envy.)
I would only like this idea if the whole aim was to increase rainfall in traditionally dry areas. Imagine a fleet of these ships being used to increase agriculture and human prosperity. Instead it will be used to reinforce the lie of Man Made climate change and will be used to actually alter the environment in order to reinforce their controlling ideals.
