Climate change and air pollution are closely linked, although in scientific research and often in policy they have been largely separated. Many of the common air pollutants and greenhouse gases not only have common sources, but may also interact physically and chemically in the atmosphere, causing a variety of environmental impacts at local, regional and global scales. The combined effects of numerous climate change and air pollution factors may significantly differ from the sum of separate effects due to various interactions (Bytnerowicz et al., 2017).
