Finally a step to reduce global warming
Scientifc American Article – Here’s why the new agreement on ‘super greenhouse gases’ is a huge deal
After a decade of fitful talks, nearly 200 countries agreed early Saturday morning in Rwanda to the most important near-term global warming agreement ever devised.
By curtailing the rapidly growing use of hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, by more than 80 percent over the next 30 years, countries may have found a way to avert the worst of the worst-case global warming scenarios.
The HFC agreement should help avoid up to 0.5 degrees Celsius, or 0.9 degrees Fahrenheit, of global warming by the end of the century.
