  1. The article seems to suggest that the effect is regional rather than world wide. Which is not to say it's not important.

    that's correct. there was a good article in september issue of "Foreign Affairs" with all the problems and advantages connected. e.g.:

    * local impact / local solutions
    * possibly cheaper to fix
    * much faster impact if soot emissions reduced (months as opposed to years for CO2) etc.
