Got to love Lovelock

James Lovelock formed the Gaia hypothesis, the hypothesis that suggests the world is a single organism. A very influential book, and a great one. Now he is saying, if I have this right, that reducing particulate emissions from economic activity will intensify global warming, because their aerosol properties have a counteracting effect of global dimming.
Businesses will still have to engage in solving the problem of human-generated global warming, of course. But being of a particular environmental orientation, like knee jerk reactions, doesn't necessarily help.
