We have at most ten years to radically slow global warming or face existential consequences. A focus on reducing CO2 is necessary but not sufficient. We first need to win the 10-year sprint to cut the non-CO2 super pollutants such as HFCs, black carbon, methane, and tropospheric ozone if we are to win the longer-term climate marathon to net zero emissions by 2050.

Alan Miller, Durwood Zaelke, and Stephen O. Andersen, climate and ozone action champions working together since the 1970s, have penned a new book, Cut Super Climate Pollutants Now!, as a call to action and roadmap for the Biden Administration to succeed on climate by going beyond CO2. Andrew Eil, Partner at Climate Finance Advisors, will interview the authors, explore what the book’s findings mean for climate policy, and probe how the financial sector can play its part.
