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.
