Proposed strategy to reduce short-lived climate pollutants

California has joined a worldwide movement to help stall climate change by limiting global warming to below a 2°C scientifically determined threshold through 2050. One of the ways California intends to do this is by developing an approach to reduce short-lived climate pollutant emissions (SLCP), including those from cooking equipment such as charbroilers and commercial refrigerants.
