WMO Aerosols Bulletin focuses on fires

10.5.2021, WMO

A new World Meteorological Organization bulletin on Aerosols examines the impact of biomass burning (wildfires and open burning for agriculture) on climate and air quality. It covers the episodes of the 2019/2020 Australian bushfires, the 2015 Indonesia peatfires and smoke transport from boreal forest fires to the Arctic.
Worldwide fire activity evolves continually throughout the year and many regions of the world have relatively clearly defined fire seasons that do not vary significantly from one year to another. This is generally most apparent in tropical regions where fire conditions...

Global methane assessment released

7.5.2021, WMO

A Global Methane Assessment released by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) shows that human-caused methane emissions can be reduced by up to 45 per cent this decade.
Such reductions would avoid nearly 0.3?C of global warming by 2045 and would be consistent with keeping the Paris Climate Agreement?s goal to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius (1.5?C) within reach.
The?assessment, for the first time, integrates the climate and air pollution costs and benefits from methane mitigation. Because methane is a key...
