Atmospheric Aerosols Found Result In Global Cooling

Posted by Dale on Mar 03, 2002 at 12:37

Atmospheric scientists have long suspected that microscopic aerosol particles from industrial processes increase the brightness of clouds, resulting in greater reflection of sunlight and cooling of Earth's climate.

This effect, described in the February 19, 2002 issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, should be accounted for in assessing the magnitude of global climate change, the researchers say.

Thank goodness we passed laws in the US 30 years ago to eliminate aerosol particles. Just think, all those predictions of global cooling might have come true it we hadn’t gotten frightened of aerosol particles and reduced them by a factor of more than 1000. We didn’t have any proof they were doing anything but we took them out “just in case” Oh yes, and because it was an easy way triple electricity costs.
