    Another worldwide environmental threat? Global Dimming

    I just saw an alarming 2005 Horizon documentary on the UKTV Documentary channel discussing Global Dimming. It is a global phenomena happening in conjuntion with Global Warming and is caused by high level atmospheric pollutants reflecting the amount of sunlight hitting the surface. As you may suspect, the controversy is heated (no pun intended) about the data, climate forcast models, ect.

    The documentary in question can be viewed here.

    Nova more recently did a take on this phenomenon as well. An interesting time line can be viewed here.
