The Dirty Sky – Atmospheric Brown Clouds

In the first episode of UCTV Prime’s new series “Lifting the Blanket: Pursuit of a Climate Change Solution,” we introduced you to Scripps Institution of Oceanography researcher Veerabhadran Ramanathan, whose curiosity led him from working in a refrigeration plant in India to making a landmark discovery that changed the face of climate research forever.

Episode 2, “The Dirty Sky” depicts what came next in Ramanthan’s quest to find human-scale solutions to climate change. His research uncovered how the black carbon soot from the rural Asian subcontinent was creating damaging atmospheric brown clouds, a major contributor to global warming, second only to CO2. His discoveries led to unprecedented support from the United Nations Environment Programme and new hope for realistic interventions that could conceivably reduce the rate of global warming by as much as 50% in the next 50 years.

Join Ramanathan’s journey and discover how his research is not just about climate change, but about saving lives. Watch “The Dirty Sky — Lifting the Blanket: Pursuit of a Climate Change Solution (Ep.2),” online now. Or start at the beginning with “The Second Front (Ep. 1).”
