Low-lying and other vulnerable countries calling for fast action on non-CO2 global warming pollutants
Green Car Congress
NOVEMBER 29, 2010
Led by the tiny Pacific island of the Federated States of Micronesia, a growing group of low-lying islands and other vulnerable countries are calling for fast action on the approximately 50% of global warming that is caused by pollutants other than carbon dioxide (CO 2 ). Micronesia submitted a proposal last year to address these very climate warmers—black carbon, methane, and tropospheric ozone—under the UN climate treaty.
