NPR Warmists Love Them Some Air Pollution

We’ve seen this same line over the past year, as the Warmists attempt to say that things like air pollution, soot, and other air borne particles are masking the affects of anthropogenic global warming. It’s actually pretty darned pathetic

(NPR) Cleaning up the air, while good for our lungs, could make global warming worse. That conclusion is underscored by a new study, which looks at the pollutants that go up smokestacks along with carbon dioxide.

These pollutants are called aerosols and they include soot as well as compounds of nitrogen and sulfur and other stuff into the air. Natalie Mahowald, a climate researcher at Cornell University, says so far, scientists have mostly tried to understand what those aerosols do while they’re actually in the air.

And, what do they find?

The aerosols reflect sunlight back into space, or they stimulate clouds that keep us cool. But it turns out that’s not all they do. These aerosols also influence how much carbon dioxide gets drawn out of the air by plants on land and in the sea.

In an article published in Science magazine, she concludes that those effects add up to quite a bit. At the moment, aerosols are not only helping reduce global warming by cooling the atmosphere, but they’re helping reduce the amount of carbon dioxide that stays in the air once we emit it.

That’s good news for now — it means the planet isn’t heating up quite as fast as it could. But that’s bad news looking down the road a little bit. That’s because many aerosols make people sick — heart and lung disease in particular. So some nations are now in the process of trying to rein them in.

See? Masking AGW. These people really do think you’re stupid, and they must do everything possible to keep their cult from dying.
