Abstract

As the Arctic is warming twice as fast than the rest of the world,1 the international community has a growing concern over the consequences for the Earth’s climate system and further implications on security.2 Scientists agree that Black Carbon (BC) is the second most important (after CO2) human emission in terms of its effect on climate change. While efforts to reduce black carbon cannot replace long-term mitigation of CO2,3 immediate reductions in BC emissions could lower the rate of Arctic warming over the next few decades.4
