John Christy also shared a Nobel, and he has a completely different opinion.

Broken link, Dirtling.

Oh, yes, Christy is quite a favorite in the oil industry's front group circuit, particularly as he and his partner Spencer are hardcore Christian conservatives. Very useful.

However, Rubbia is merely repeating the well established finding that aerosol pollutants mask warming, meaning that as we cut carbon pollution to save the climate, our efforts will be impeded by the decline in these masking aerosols.

If we stop driving cars our temps will go up by 3*? Why would we stop driving cars if that will be the result?

Another pending disaster story, masquerading as science.

LOL, disaster stories are all they've got.
Backed by 98% of 79 climate scientists and all the king's academies and horses, of courses.
