The skies around the world are still polluted. The transparency of the sky has been reduced in recent decades , with the sole exception of Europe. The darkening is due to the suspended particles that float in the air, the so-called aerosols, dust and sulfur dioxide, which are generated mainly in the combustion of coal, in different industrial processes.
The darkening of the sky is especially noticeable in regions such as South and East Asia, South America, Australia, and Africa.
How do they affect global warming? Those known as CFCs affect the temperature of the planet because they reduce the amount of solar radiation that reaches the earth’s surface. They reflect part of that radiation towards space and produce terrestrial cooling but a heating in the atmosphere.
In Europe contamination skies with particles peaked in the eighties, but new technologies have improved processes and has won European sky brightness and visibility in recent years.
