While the Chinese government has considered spending nearly $12 Billion on increasing woodland areas, the government has assumed the causes of the aforementioned trends are “overfarming, overgrazing, and destruction of forests”(MHNL 2007). In this paper, the authors instead discussed and investigated a possible relationship between aerosol emission in the atmosphere and the climate change trends in China and India. Specifically, the authors conducted two experiments in order to examine the direct radiative effect of aerosols in these two countries. In Experiment A, a controlled environment was supplemented with Black Carbon(BC)
