How cleaner air changes the climate | Science
Aerosol emissions are an important component of human influence on the climate today. Fossil fuel use reductions and air quality measures make it likely that this influence will be greatly reduced over the coming decades, with consequences for the climate that may even dominate over those from greenhouse gas warming in some regions. However, understanding of the complex interactions between cooling and heating aerosols, atmospheric circulation, and precipitation patterns remains limited. The regional effects of cleaning our air, in all their complexity, must be taken into account when developing climate adaptation and mitigation strategies, if we are to be prepared for the changes to come.
