  • Air pollution and climate policies not in conflict

    Air pollution policy does not undermine the long-term goals of climate change policy, a new study concludes. Although reductions in the pollutant sulphur dioxide could have some warming effects on the Earth’s temperature, the impacts are only short term and will never outweigh climate policy’s cooling effects. Some researchers have raised concerns that air pollution policies ...
