<![CDATA[How to save the Arctic’s moderating role on global warming - Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists]]> Mon, 22 Apr 2019 08:23:57 +0000 thebulletin.org
Because the Arctic’s role in regulating the global climate is a critical link in the chain of climate protection, it should be the focus of an all-out effort to keep it strong and safe. This requires cutting emissions of short-lived pollutants. It also requires speeding up strategies to remove carbon dioxide we’ve already emitted, including natural processes that use photosynthesis to pull carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in trees, grasslands, wetlands, and other biomass, while u...
