“The connection between climate mitigation and clean air is a very fundamental chemical one. The chemistry of the atmosphere affects human health, ecosystem health, agricultural productivity, the rate of heating. Everything we think about as a development goal as well as a climate goal is interconnected through a common dependence on the chemistry of the air.”
