Restrictions on air pollution affect climate in Arctic

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 …
