"Black carbon is an atmospheric pollutant. The very small particles are formed through the combustion of fossil fuels, biofuel and biomass, and settle from the air slowly. Also known as soot, this material absorbs solar radiation, trapping heat in the atmosphere and contributing heavily to global warming."

It's also found in the lungs of dead humans who never smoked & had lived in large cities, when i was studying anatomy & physiology we visited the city morgue where i saw the dissected human lungs, etc!
Obviously it will be found everywhere on this planet!
