Climate change is caused by the rise in anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. Such gases include carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide, which are long-lived compounds that can remain in the atmosphere for several years. But does climate change in turn impact the quality of the air?

On this episode of Climate Connections, NTU Professor Stephan Schuster, Deputy Centre Director (Facilities & Capacities) & Research Director, Meta-o’mics & Microbiomes cluster at SCELSE, reviews the connection between air pollution and climate change, as well as the tell-tale signs that scientists look out for when measuring air quality. Prof Schuster also reveals some potential solutions that actually already exist in Singapore!
