Restrictions on air pollution affect climate in Arctic

Air QualityClimate

Restrictions on emissions of air pollution could slow down climate change in the Arctic. The results would be faster than from a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions. The crucial factor, however, is which emissions should be reduced, because some air pollutants increase heating and others cool …

Wind farms have negligible impact on climate

Rossby CentreClimate

Wind turbines in large wind farms cause only slight changes in temperature, cloud and rainfall in the region of the wind farms. Globally, the change is negligible. Therefore, there should not be any fear that the operation of wind farms increases climate change.
