Recent reports suggests that reducing the black carbon emissions would quickly make great impact on climate change and global warming. It can possibly have considerable contribution to public health protection.
Researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography says that the world could buy time to halt the disastrous geopolitical and environmental climate change effects by using effective technologies to curb carbon emissions created by biomass fuel burning and diesel.
They conclude that full implementation of existing emissions-control technologies could offset the warming effects of one to two decades of carbon dioxide emissions.
A dedicated effort would not only allow more time for creation of effective carbon dioxide-reduction regulations but would also have enormous public health and economic benefits, the authors said.
