Online chat with Earthjustice set for Tuesday morning

Join a 30-minute online chat about black carbon with Martin Wagner, head of Earthjustice's global warming work, this Tuesday (Oct. 20) at 11 a.m. Pacific Time. You can do it on your personal computer at home or at work. For details and to register, go to this website.

It is considered one of the worst climate change pollutants, and one of the easiest to deal with.
