Health Experts, Economists, Scientists Work To Develop Cleaner Cookstoves To Cut Pollution

Associated Press: Push for cleaner stoves in poor countries to cut pollution
“…A team of economists, scientists, and health experts working with The Gold Standard Foundation have developed a uniform way to calculate how much black carbon is released from cooking stoves that use different technologies or fuels. It’s a first and necessary step, they say, in accessing the tens of billions of dollars it will cost to provide cleaner cookers worldwide for some 2.8 billion people still using firewood, kerosene, or sundried patties made of hand-packed cow dung…” (Daigle, 4/8).
