Reduction of soot released from diesel engines and wood fires would slow climate change

Having developed the first computer model to measure the presence of soot released by such sources as diesel engines and wood-burning fires, US-based Stanford University Professor Mark Jacobson finds that it accounts for up to 20% percent of global warming, with its reduction being one of the fastest and most economical ways to slow climate change and protect human health.
