Scientists at Stockholm University in Sweden have determined that Asia’s brown cloud, the subjects of years of study, is about two-thirds due to the burning of wood, dung and other biomass for cooking and agriculture, and only about one-third to the burning of fossil fuels in cars, power plants, etc. This proportion is much greater than found in earlier studies using different methodologies.
