Tackling short lived climate pollutants, such as soot, methane and refrigerants, will help reduce global warming but will not bring climate benefits equivalent to reducing C02 emissions explains Jason Blackstock at COP 18 climate talks in Doha..

A new approach allows the temperature forcing of CO2 and short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) to be examined under a common cumulative framework. While anthropogenic warming is largely determined by cumulative emissions of CO2, SLCPs—including soot, other aerosols and methane—also play a role. Quantifying their impact on global temperature is, however, distorted by existing methodologies using conventional Global Warming Potentials (GWP)...
Science and Policy Research Associate
Michelle’s core expertise is in air pollution, greenhouse gases and climate science. Her focus as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge (2009-2017) was on the greenhouse gas methane and its sources in the UK and in the Arctic. She took part in conducting large field campaigns to the Arctic to measure methane in the atmosphere, linking these measurements back...
Professor of Geochemistry
Ralph’s work centers on long-term measurements of the major constituents in air. He has been on the faculty at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, since 1993. He was the first to demonstrate that the O2 content of air is decreasing due to the burning of fossil-fuels and has directed a program to track this decrease since 1989. Since...
Professor of Geosystem Science
Myles Allen is Professor of Geosystem Science in the School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford and Head of the Climate Dynamics Group in the University's Department of Physics. His research focuses on how human and natural influences on climate contribute to observed climate change and risks of extreme weather and in quantifying their implications for long-range climate...

In this 90 minute video, Professor Myles Allen, Director of Oxford Martin Programme on Climate Pollutants, discusses how close we are to achieving 1.5⁰C - Monitoring progress to net zero and the long - term temperature goal in the context of the global stocktake. Professor Myles Allen begins his discussion at 17:41 and end at 27:20.
