Study finds airborne microplastics can impact climate change

Airborne microplastics may have a minor cooling effect on the climate by reflecting solar radiation, according to a modelling study of the direct global climate effects of airborne microplastics, published in Nature. However, as plastic continues to accumulate in the Earth’s environment, a stronger climate effect could be exerted in the future.
