    Global Dimming

    http://www.nytimes.com/2004/05/13/sc...er=USER%20LAND

    Interesting article. It says here that air pollution is reducing the amount of sunlight reaching the earth's surface. Global warming is progressing at a slower rate due to this effect.

    Funny, I thought pollution is the reason for global warming. Al Gore said so and must be true if he gave the speech earlier this year in New York on the coldest day in 50 years.
    Trust me. I know what I am doing.

    Reminded me of some college courses.

    Good to see scientists are still divided as to what exactly our polluting endeavors are doing to the Earth. I think the only people who will really know will be the historians.

    Here's a link to better understand the relationship between cloud cover (include air pollution) and green house gases. Skip to the last paragraph if too many words.
