Essentially, the growth of the global dimming phenomenon only worked between 1950 and 1985, only for the trend to change and get a turn for the worst. After the masking of CO2 had taken place for close to three decades, the impact of the masked CO2 was only to get worse and increase the global warming trend experienced today. The global warming trend got worse in the 1990s, and many attribute this to the decrease in the effects of the aerosols. Global dimming, therefore, cannot be the best solution to global warming because it lacks the ability to control the global warming aspect from all aspects.
Aerosols are not gases, but particles left to drift aloft in the atmosphere with the aim of destroying greenhouse gases that cause an effect on the atmosphere. Importantly, these small particles operate without the influence of gravity (Kerr, 2007). They are light enough to remain aloft for a few hours and could be critical in reducing the effects felt when dealing with such particles. They are solids that may operate as liquids in some instances, something that can assist in understanding the real impact of these elements in the due course (Denman, & Brasseur, 2007).
These aerosols are mainly synthetic, implying their inclusion of greenhouse gases that increase the rates of global warming at any particular time (Wild, Ohmura, & Makowski, 2007). The society should be warned that the trends taking place in the global front today are a result of the attributes they ignored before. In many instances, the dimming products are sulphate compounds, which eventually reduce to global warming particles, which accelerate the rate of global warming in the atmosphere (Kerr, 2007).
Some of the scientists argue that the growth of global dimming is attributed to human activity, and so is global warming. Though some view these two as neither mutually exclusive nor contradictory, the fact remains that the continued utility of global dimming aerosols over the years has
