It's worse than you thought.

I was just watching this Nova program and found out a very disconcerting fact, as well as an answer to all the climate-change skeptics who insist that any rise in temperature is minimal compared to past fluctuations. Apparently the actual effects of global warming are being masked to a large degree by all the particulate air pollution, which is dimming the sun. That's just great. I'm going to go play a video game now and pretend the last hour never happened.
