The technological battle against climate change and global warming is focused on many aspects of the primary evil, GHG (greenhouse gases). The top culprit is CO2 (carbon dioxide) which is generated in burning fossil fuels and other activities. It is also produced in nature and removed from the air by natural means, through plant’s photosynthesis. Thus, a forest of trees has the ability to soak up a quantity of CO2.
Because carbon dioxide is the primary greenhouse gas emitted by human activities, changes in forest carbon can help to mitigate climate change—or they can increase the problem. When forests
