An incomplete combustion reaction produces CO and C and water vapors instead of CO2 produced in complete combustion. The products of the incomplete combustion are microscopic particles - liquid and solid. They are suspended in the atmosphere. As their amount in the atmosphere increases, the amount of sunlight, reaching the surface of the Earth decreases. This effect is called global dimming.
