Short summary
Estimates of how much the particles we emit into the atmosphere cool the climate depend on how those particles influence the relative number of cloud droplets. Those estimates are strongly influenced by how many droplets a given climate model predicts under clean conditions, even more so than how much that human emissions increase droplet concentrations. Because of this, observations of particles influencing clouds in clean conditions could help constrain their climate-cooling potential.
