Why swap black carbon for solar kwatts?

Black carbon is the fine black particles that are emitted into the air as a result of the incomplete burning of fossil fuels.

It has been identified as a major contributor to global climate change, second only to CO2. By focussing our attention on reducing black carbon and removing this soot from the air, we are able to see the almost immediate positive effects. The control of black carbon offers possible opportunities for slowing, or even reversing, climate change.
