7 Billion People Breathing Bad Air, Most Denying Global Warming via @greentechmedia

When directly in the air over an area yes, but brown cloud of pollution over China has been shown via satellite measurements to cause warming, similarly for pollution over S. Cal. I would conjecture this means CO2 and other GW gases have greater effect overall. Also, particulates have been found in snow on glaciers and at the poles in significant quatity where they definitely increase heat absorption from the sun and increase snow melt. Less snow and ice means less solar reflection and more heat absorption from exposed ground or water. (white snow reflects way better) So does it cool the earth more or warm it more?
