Reducing Methane And Soot Could Help Curb Global Warming
Reducing methane and soot (black carbon) emissions along with carbon dioxide could more effectively rein in projected global warming than a CO2-only reduction strategy, according to a climate modeling study (Science, DOI: 10.1126/science.1210026). A team led by Drew T.
