Terraforming Venus

Paul Birch suggested that a habitable surface of his kind would shade and cool the lower atmosphere and would eventually settle down onto the planet's surface.

I find the idea quite cool. A sophont in orbit might quickly glance at the planet and perceive it like a terraformed world with plenty of islands separated by odd coloured oceans[1]. Closer inspection though reveals that the oceans are huge banks of clouds and the islands vast platforms.
