The China Syndrome

China 1

Delgul (515042) writes "The most prominent climate science story of the past week was that of Kaufmann et al writing in the PNAS (http://wattsupwiththat.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/pnas-201102467.pdf) stating that the temperature standstill of the past decade was caused, in part, by China emitting sunlight-reflecting aerosols from its burgeoning coal-fired power stations.

Now it seems that at least some of the claims in the article are either premature or misleading and should be at least be clarified in a follow-up research, according to dr. David Whitehouse on http://www.thegwpf.org/the-observatory/3442-the-chine-syndrome.html"
