BEIJING, Sept 28 (Reuters Point Carbon) - Australia on Friday announced it will join the Climate and Clean Air Coalition, a U.N.-led initiative to cut short-lived climate pollutants such as soot and methane.

The initiative, launched in February this year, targets emissions that contribute to climate change and cause local air pollution that can threaten human health.

"The science suggests that acting quickly to reduce short-lived climate pollutants, which are more potent than carbon dioxide, has the potential to slow down warming by 2050," Mark Dreyfus, Australia's parliamentary secretary for climate change, said in a statement.
