Picture of how our climate is affected by greenhouse gases is a ‘cloudy’ one, say researchers from the Hebrew University, US and Australia

“…aerosols can have dramatic effects of either increasing or decreasing the cloud sun-deflecting effect…”
Jerusalem, Jan. 26, 2014 – The warming effect of human-induced greenhouse gases is a given, but to what extent can we predict its future influence? That is an issue on which science is making progress, but the answers are still far from exact, say researchers from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the US and Australia who have studied the issue and whose work which has just appeared in the journal Science.
Indeed, one could say that the picture is a “cloudy” one, since the determination of the greenhouse gas effect involves multifaceted interactions with cloud cover.
“…further progress on understanding aerosol-cloud interactions and their effects on…
