How to Slow Climate Change? Stop Talking About It

How to Slow Climate Change? Stop Talking About It

While the president never used the words black carbon on Tuesday night, two things brought it to mind: first, his acknowledgment that, "The differences in this chamber may be too deep right now to pass a comprehensive plan to fight climate change," and second, the moment when the camera panned briefly across the grim visage of Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma, the most obdurate of all climate deniers. The beauty of eliminating black carbon is that it can bring a smile even to Inhofe’s face. Because it’s a local matter, and has such obvious humanitarian benefits, it avoids the political third rail of a carbon treaty at the U.N. and legislation in Washington. Surprising as it may seem, Inhofe was one of the co-sponsors of a bipartisan bill in 2009 (on Earth Day, no less!) directing the EPA to study the impact of black carbon emissions on public health and global warming.
