I was recently made aware of the statement that SO2 (sulfates from burning coal) act like a protective agent in the atmosphere and reducing the temperature. The narrative said that if we managed to stop emissions from one day to the next, then temperatures would hike up right away. (the German statement can be found here: https://www.kiwi-verlag.de/magazin/gastspiel/fuer-pessimismus-ist-es-zu-spaet-dankesrede-von-eva-menasse-anlaesslich-der - second paragraph) This connection was attributed to Gernot Wagner then Harvard, now NYU.
Does anybody know of any effects and impacts here? And how this is modelled in En-ROADS?
I looked into the referenc guide but didn't find anything.
All the best,
