Reducing Air Pollution Increases Global Warming

Reduced air pollution and increased water evaporation appear to be adding to man-made global warming.

Research presented at a major European science meeting adds to other evidence that cleaner air is letting more solar energy through to the Earth’s surface. Other studies show that increased water vapour in the atmosphere is reinforcing the impact of man-made greenhouse gas emissions.

Do the right thing, Buy an SUV.

Solar Energy reaching earth was in decline from the 50’s until the 80’s when it started to pick up by all accounts and it is this, coupled with generally cleaner air that is exacerbating the problem.

Are we just fucked now whatever we do?

Its a chain reaction that we have no control over anymore.

We can just do like the current and previous generations -> fuck that, its not our problem, leave it to our children to solve, those that are not deformed or stillbirth, that is…

I tried to use the “Recomend this link to a friend”… but I could’nt find GWB’s email addy.

I believe the point of the report is that there is scientific evidence that its not just simply CO2 levels that are effecting climate change. Its that CO2 levels affect other gas/vapor levels in the atmosphere which also effect climate change. Negative synergy…yay.

I wonder if and/or how long it would take the atmosphere to revert to, say, 1950s conditions if current combustion emissions were reduced by half and we had a way to put 03 generators at that height in the atmosphere.
