Episode 611 Thanks to Chlorine

David Henkel-Wallace, Franz Oeste, Clive Elsworth, Jeff Shrager, Peter Fiekowsky, and Rocio Herbert are all exploring the new discovery that clouds (the white ones that reflect sunlight back into space) also cool the planet in another way: by adding hydrochloric acid to the atmosphere, which has an independent cooling effect by destroying methane molecules. This may give us a new way of cooling the planet. Adele Buckley has a question.
