Global Dimming

globaldimming.jpgThe BBC Horizon program has made a really interesting documentary on what is being labeled “global dimming”.

Basically, it’s suggesting that all the pollution in the air is having an impact on the amount of light from the sun reaching the Earth (ie. the “dimming”)

What’s being suggested is that global warming would be far greater if it weren’t for the great blanket of pollution we’ve created above our planet. if we address our pollution problems, the challenge posed by global warming may be greater than many scientists are suggesting.
