Aerosol emissions in East Asia driven by consumption in developed countries

International trade shifts climate impact from consuming to producing regions
Tue, 2016-09-06 15:31

Much of the influence on climate from air pollution in East Asia is driven by consumption in the developed countries of Western Europe and North America, according to research co-led by McGill University atmospheric scientist Yi Huang.

In a paper published online this week in Nature Geoscience, Huang and colleagues from China, the U.S. and U.K. report that international trade shifts the climate impacts of aerosols -- solid or liquid particles suspended in air -- from net consuming countries to net producing countries.

Why Canada was shut out of Asia’s new power forum

Tue, 2012-09-25 11:39

Last week, a Globe article outlined the challenges that Canada faces in establishing itself as a trading power in the Asian region.

As I read along, I suddenly thought of a scene from the movie Shrek, where the donkey character jumps in and out of view, shouting: “Oh, oh, pick me . . . oh, pick me . . . oh me . . . me, me, meeeee (donkey falls out of view)”.
