The same data
shed light on how our lungs are affected by the air we breathe, she said.
We dont really understand the cooling trends, she said.
So they really dont know.
A compound that particularly interests Asa-Awuku is black carbon, found in emissions from vehicles and other combustion. It tends to be washed out of clouds by rain and
a potential mechanism for reducing the effects of atmospheric warming.
how (black carbon) influences clouds, she said.
Determining these differences, Asa-Awuku said, could point to a better understanding of some of the causes of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other lung diseases.
Dont know? Maybe she needs to inhale some of that carbon out of a tail pipe to understand the effects of (black carbon)
There you have it folks more scientific science fiction. They really dont know.
