Does Dandruff Change the Climate?

New Scientist reports that German atmospheric researcherRuprecht Jaenicke took air samples from Germany, Siberia,the Amazon rainforest, the Atlantic ocean and from bubblesin Greenland ice. When he analyzed the particles he found inthese samples, he found that 25% of them were organicdetritus, such as dandruff, hair, sloughed off skin cells,etc. He estimates that around a billion tons of theseparticles enter the atmosphere, from both humans andanimals, every year, which is 20 times the previousestimates for this kind of air pollution. This is enough toabsorb sunlight and encourage cloud formation, which couldchange the climate.
