Energy Daily;2/25/2011, Issue 38, p2
This article discusses a report on actions that would reduce the amount of global warming expected by 2050. Released by the United Nations Environment Program, the report suggests to cut emissions of black carbon from cooking stoves, diesel engines and industrial sources and reduce the formation of ground-level ozone worldwide. The program believes that the initiatives would help in protecting climate, public health, water and food security, and ecosystems.
