Number of Disasters per Year Number of Disasters per Year
Trends in number of reported disasters. Much of the increase in the number of hazardous events reported is probably due to significant improvements in information access and also to population growth, but the number of floods and cyclones reported is still rising compared to earthquakes. Is global warming affecting the frequency of natural hazards?

Combustion sources of black carbon. Black carbon is thought to be the second largest contributor to global warming, next to brown carbon (the gases). Thus, reducing black carbon emission represents one of the most efficient ways for mitigating global warming that we know today.
