What are Short-Lived Climate Pollutants?

Year: 2014 Author: GRID-Arendal
SLCPs are substances with a relatively short lifetime in the atmosphere – a few days to a few decades – and a warming effect on near term climate. The main SLCPs are BC, CH4, tropospheric O3, and many HFCs. A reduction in SLCP emissions will quickly have a major positive effect on public health, agriculture in addition to the short-term mitigation of climate problems.
