A new study throws yet another wrench into our understanding of global climate change
Wait, now pollution is preventing
global warming? That’s the conclusion of a recent study
in the journal Geophysical Research Letters
, which says rising temperatures seen in Europe over the last few years result as much from the reduction of air pollution as from the creation of it. The research, which looked at the effects of aerosols on climate, confirms an older concept known as global dimming, and complicates our understanding of how mankind affects the climate.
