Deep fat fryers may help form cooling clouds
 

Fatty acids released into the air from cooking may help form clouds that limit global warming, say scientists.
Researchers believe these molecules arrange themselves into complex 3-D structures in atmospheric droplets.
These aerosols persist for longer than normal and can seed the formation of clouds which experts say can have a cooling effect on the climate.
The authors say the study will shed new light on the long term role of aerosols on temperatures.
Atmospheric aerosols are one of the areas of climate science where there are considerable uncertainties.
The description covers tiny... read more
