COURSE OVERVIEW

Black carbon is a global environmental problem that negatively impacts both human health and our climate. Inhalation of black carbon is associated with health problems, including respiratory and cardiovascular disease, cancer, and even birth defects. Black carbon also contributes to climate change, causing changes in rain and clouds patterns. Air pollution, both outdoors and indoors, causes millions of premature deaths each year.
