On thin ice: how cutting pollution can slow warming and save lives

A new scientific report shows that by moving rapidly to reduce pollutants such as methane and black carbon, could slow warming in critical snow and ice-covered regions while benefitting human welfare. Continued melting in snow and ice-covered regions will rise sea levels further, threaten water resources, and release more carbon into the atmosphere. The report looks at 14 measures that could curb black carbon and methane emissions.
