Mitigating Climate Change and Improving Health and Food Security

The GAINS model has been used to identify emission reduction strategies for methane and black carbon that mitigate near-term climate change and are simultaneously beneficial to human health. The research, involving NASA, SEI, and others, and published in Science (Jan 13) identifies 14 measures that could reduce warming by ~0.5°C by 2050 and avoid up to 4.7 million premature deaths annually.  More
