Drew Shindell of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York City and his team looked at hundreds of proposed measures to deal with climate change using a model developed by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA).

A new study led by a NASA scientist highlights 14 key air pollution control measures that if implemented could slow the pace of global warming, save millions of lives and boost agricultural production. All of the control measures focus on either limiting black carbon or methane, pollutants that exacerbate climate change and damage human or plant health.
