According to American, Canadian and Australian geophysicists, a phenomenon called global dimming (Global dimming), can protect the population of the Earth from global warming.

On global blackout scientific community has been known since the late 1950s: because of the increasing number of different particles in the atmosphere and clouds to our planet comes less sunlight and radiation.

According to scientists, each decade come to us as the solar radiation is reduced by 2-4%.

However, previous studies were limited to the northern hemisphere, so some scholars have doubted the global effect and its existence at all.

Now the proponents of the theory have evidence that should convince skeptics blackout recorded south of the equator.

Michael Roderick (Michael Roderick) at the Australian National University (ANU) believes that global dimming allows you to adjust the atmosphere itself.

As a result of the combustion of fossil fuels not only increases the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, but the air is saturated with tiny particles.

At the same time, higher temperatures increase the amount of clouds.

Clouds and particles help block the sun's rays and scatter light, which actually increases the consumption of carbon dioxide by plants.

All this creates a strong balance sheet and protect the planet from global warming.
