Release #:12-20 Date:05/22/2012 ARB PIO: (916) 322-2990 CONTACT: Dimitri Stanich 916-322-2825 firstname.lastname@example.org MEDIA ADVISORY: Leading scientists to present findings on black carbon and climate change to California Air Resources Board Presentation to be Webcast; focus on short-lived climate change pollutants SACRAMENTO - On Thursday, May 24, six internationally recognized scientists will describe their findings on black carbon and other ‘short-lived’ greenhouse gases to the California Air Resources Board. Their research will demonstrate that focusing on methane, hydrofluorocarbons, and black carbon would be a highly effective strategy to mitigate impacts of climate change especially in Arctic regions. The studies to be presented are among a body of growing research indicating the dangers posed by black carbon. On Saturday, the G8 announced that it will formally join the Climate and Clean Air Coalition to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (launched in February) complementing efforts to address carbon dioxide emissions.
