There's Just No Winning

From nature.com:
Earth's air is cleaner, but this may worsen the greenhouse effect.:

"Our planet's air has cleared up in the past decade or two, allowing more sunshine to reach the ground, say two studies in Science this week.

Reductions in industrial emissions in many countries, along with the use of particulate filters for car exhausts and smoke stacks, seem to have reduced the amount of dirt in the atmosphere and made the sky more transparent.

That sounds like very good news. But the researchers say that more solar energy arriving on the ground will also make the surface warmer, and this may add to the problems of global warming. More sunlight will also have knock-on effects on cloud cover, winds, rainfall and air temperature that are difficult to predict."
Something else for the doomsdayers to bitch about. First we were going to pollute ourselves into oblivion, then we're destroying the ozone, and now that we've gone and cleaned ourselves up we're doomed anyway.

Well, I try to do my part. I drive a pickup, cook on the smoker and the grill a lot, and light the occasional fire in the firepit.
If this planet gets too warm, I'll not be to blame.
