In her interest words on health impacts. Of the best investment to be. At least in the short term the filtration systems to capture black carbon in India. Health benefits — ocean without wouldn’t be a better investment for better health. There."" Try it out. Com. The clean air task — analyzed. The benefit of looking at power plant. Pollution cleanup he’s a pollution cleanup car pollution cleanup from both — health perspective climate perspective. And if you factor and if — combination both of health and the climate benefit there is no better investment than any particle filtration system. Particles and deadly air pollutants. Like carbon me deliver them the fact that climate and so he’s taken to an — you have a technology they can deliver a 90% reduction. In the articulate — like carbon you’ve got a real winner for technology."" I introduces black carbon bill by a year a year and a half ago. He’s — me the right thing to do but in there are seeing a a documentary showing that. The on this surface it was either the the Arctic or Greenland and I can’t recall which are worse. But it showed these depressions. Or holes she divides — I had these depressions and at the bottom of the depression. There’d be this patch of blacks I mean blacks against the way I mean it was just look for the entire cap was. Was covered with this stuff at least at the bottom of the torn of these little — pools. Caught my attention. In your question is he’ll be a — black carbon how does that compare to the general. Climate change when it’s in the app here. Just small part of the problem more. A big part of the problem."" Maybe — can — part of that question. If you look at global. Warming effect of the Carmen. I’m veto it fat contributes to what can person. The black car and but if you look at in the Arctic heat — Arctic."" Or in the Alpine nation. Than the darkening. May be the dominant. Because black carbon warming on them."" Trapping sunlight there."" But look — that — and and — and ice — the darkening of — about — dominant. –"" If we we believe that anywhere there there — the effect is you’ve seen. You’ve been described it occurs in places like the Himalayas. The results are somewhat more ambiguous because you have a fair amount of wind blown — And other types of pollutants that are already deposited on this — Though it it almost certainly contribute but how much it contributes there. Is more ambiguous in the Arctic which in tends to be very far from. From — sources the snow is very clean through the effect is extremely large and there we believe that it is it’s quite possible that the carbon — Responsible for over half. Of the of the accelerated melting we’ve seen in the last few decades or at least over overstated twentieth century. You’re gonna give me — effect from worker. Well it is it is. Both the effect of black carbon in the atmosphere and meal deal effectively and the effect on — veto — obviously very local but even the effect in the atmosphere. As an extra powerful impact on the Arctic because most of the sources are from the Northern Hemisphere industrialized. Or developing nations which means that their missions are closer so unlike YouTube which just trips around uniformly everywhere. The black carbon be physically and needed in the Northern Hemisphere. Fairly close to the Arctic allows it to have an even stronger impact on the Arctic than it does on the globe –"" lot of frustration. That lack of understanding. And a lot of places including those congress about alliance associated with — and jewels and unification black carbon in no way. And one of the source of frustration is that. Information the scientific community — market shared with members of congress. That you don’t have an appreciation for one reason or another. Because it occurred from scientists and — frankly. I’m surprised that you we have people walk around here today. — is capital who are — they’re petitioning their government for redress of grievances. In certain sort of direction. But I haven’t seen — to appeared demanding action from your congress. Except in the most restrained way. Academic. More silent way. If I was I — to and I knew what. Frankly lot of scientists know in the country is going on after him in the planet’s climatic in and in the ocean. I’d I’d be in somebody’s grilled about. — that we need action. And you don’t see that scientific community. Very few exceptions we we got a letter from 250 two last week I read and wake up over roses this problem — there is no there was now males living room. But that’s about it. A latter. Not personally and down on the tracks. Why doesn’t that happen should it happen and how we engaged scientific community to be more. Sharing of the information now. When it needs to be sheer. And for her New York about teacher and educator you’re responsible for the future crop but I took that. We’re gonna depend upon."" Thank you mr. Ainsley. I think it was just Monday. When I told my air quality modeling class that some of them should run for office."" And I hope that hell that’s how does that be great not against me this."" Behind your — well Douglas enough I think I voted for you wanna — you I appreciate that. And any rate. This is that this is a difficult question and it it has to do with that in nature of scientists and how they approach science. If you. If you have an action outcome. When it’s almost afraid that you feel. Affect the science because you’re close to look at it this passionately. And so how we conduct their business 99.9. Percent of the time we must step back from what we want the outcome to be. We’re not allowed to want an outcome. And perhaps that leads to a disconnect between. And the people like you like the rest of the committee who are able to put that science and action so. So wonderfully. To think of so many measures as mr. Schneider outlined. To implement. Action in the society. I don’t have a good answer for you and I can’t advise the scientific community. To become more passionate. Because they want to be very careful and that’s a very important component of the scientific method. But I can say that if you if you perhaps had discussions like this one. Or even more informal discussions in which there was mixing between committee like yourself. And a group of scientists that they communication. Might. Flow a little."" easily. Well I just take this one opportunity to encourage scientific community to figure out a way to be this passionate objectively. But passionate about sharing information they do have. But the people who can give effect of those policies. And I think I think that. Possible in the human intellect to do both of those things. If we don’t have the scientific community doing that right now we’re not gonna solve this problem — people frankly won’t know about it. And this is great to have our committee doing this. But if we don’t have time to getting people and shake them by the callers to get him understand how significant this problem is people are sleep walking over a cliff. And frankly the scientific community are the people vested with the intellect and knowledge who have the ability. To get people to wake up so I’m I’m just clean refused members of the scientific community. To try to engage your members and colleagues in an effort to educate the US congress because I think the moment demands that we — a lot of time thank you."
