Clear skies end global dimming

news @ nature.com -- Earth's air is cleaner, but this may worsen the greenhouse effect.
... "The results suggest that a downward trend in the amount of sunlight reaching the surface, which has been observed since measurements began in the late 1950s, is now over.

The researchers argue that this trend, commonly called 'global dimming', reversed more than a decade ago, probably following the collapse of communist economies and the consequent decrease in industrial pollutants."
Okayyyyyyy.

One. We stopped air pollution by two things:
First, harsher environmental laws
Second, we defeated Communism

Two. The wonderful "clear skies" we have provided for are ...(hush)INCREASING GLOBAL WARMING (SCREAM or laugh or ROLF, take your pick)

More money for research. More money for research! The solution must be found...

Another crock brought to you by ... government grants.

Bring back airborne particulate matter!!!

hey Mongo-- you should install Haloscan commenting-- it's much easier to use, allows gravatars, and creates a cool community around your blog.

Plus you can block asshats by IP, edit their comments for fun, and generally mock them in a fashion reminiscent of Jenjis Khan.
