Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think there is this theory that says that a lot of the desertification and starvation in the Sahel in the 70's and 80's was due to particulate emissions in Europe. When we cleaned up our factories and power plants the desertification stopped and reversed, in spite of the fact that the clearer air also meant higher global temperatures.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
