Tiny particles known as black carbon can pack a heavy punch when it comes to climate change. Gasoline-burning engines, once thought to be minor players in black carbon production, could put out twice as much as was previously measured, according to new field methods (Environ. Sci. Technol., DOI: 10.1021/es2033845). John Liggio and colleagues from . . .
