    It is unfortunate that skeptics, apparently like a certain radio host (I only heard about his broadcast yesterday) are touting global dimming as an answer to climate change and global warming (oddly enough, which in their minds doesn't exist anyway).
    Global dimming is a real phenomenon and it is currently one of only a few other natural phenomema – like overtaxing the carbon capture ability of our forests and oceans in absorbing excess CO2 – that is helping to slow global warming. See: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/earth/understanding-
    Like damage to the forests and oceans, however, this increase in air pollution is making it hard for us to breathe, and is ultimately just delaying, while worsening, the problem long term .
    As if the climate change skeptics don't regularly take our breath away …
    Great cartoon.Thanks!
