World’s forests increasingly taking up more carbon

nationalsciencefoundation:

The world’s forests are increasingly taking up more carbon,
partially offsetting the carbon being released by the burning of fossil fuels
and by deforestation in the tropics. The new findings, published in the journal Biogeosciences, suggest that forests
are growing more vigorously, and therefore, locking away more carbon. Even so,
the concentration of heat-trapping carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is still on
the rise.

“Every decade, Earth’s forests are taking up carbon
faster than the previous decade,” said Britton Stephens, a co-author of
the study and a scientist at the NSF-funded National Center for Atmospheric Research. “The
same is true of the oceans. Even together, the ocean and the land are not
keeping up with industrial carbon emissions, and the global concentration of
carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is rising at an accelerating rate.”
