The best way to manage forests to store carbon and to mitigate climate change is hotly debated. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and wood can be a substitute for fossil fuels and carbon-intensive materials such as concrete and ...

Even in the first light of dawn in the Tripa swamp forest of Sumatra it is clear that something is terribly wrong. Where there should be lush foliage stretching away towards the horizon, there are only the skeletons of trees. Smoke drifts across ...

Nestled among the dry eucalypt forests behind Nagambie, north of Melbourne, the 36-metre metal ''flux tower'' looks out of place. Far above the sparse grey box and lemon gums it sends out an infrared beam that, 20 times a second, ...

One of the world’s major terrestrial carbon pools is rapidly deteriorating as large parts of Indonesia’s peatlands are deforested and converted to oil palm and paper plantations. No longer a carbon sink, Indonesia’s peatlands are now a globally ...

There is ample evidence from around the world of extreme weather conditions arising from the devastating effects of climate change. But there is still plenty of denial among those who design and implement environmentally sensitive ...

We just topped 400 ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere. That’s a 40% increase since 1750, and a good bit above the 350 ppm boundary that has been identified for playing it safe (Hansen et. al., 2008).There’s another statistical threshold we just ...

The Government has adopted a soft unilateral target for reducing carbon emissions by 2020, but Climate Change Minister Tim Groser said a future Government might lift it, should progress towards an international agreement post-2020 warrant ...   
2/8/2013
An intense heat wave in Siberia has contributed to an unusual flare up of wildfires across the fragile and carbon-rich landscape. Smoke from the fires is lofting high into the atmosphere, and is drifting toward the Arctic, where soot can hasten ...

Protecting Forests and Growing REDD+ | Audio, Center for Global Development
My guest this week is Frances Seymour, our newest senior fellow at the Center and one of the world's top authorities on the complex issues at the intersection of tropical forests, development and climate change. Before joining CGD, Frances was ...   
18/6/2013
When we talk about combating climate, the most obvious issues that come to mind are policies to prevent carbon dioxide emissions - cap-and-trade programs and carbon taxes and environmental regulations. Then there are the technological solutions ...

Africa’s savanna ecosystems — which include the thorn tree-studded plains of the Serengeti, the open woodlands of the Kruger National Park, and the dry, red sand savannas of the Kalahari — occupy about 70 percent of the continent south of the ...

The Amazon rain forest, popularly known as the lungs of the planet, inhales carbon dioxide as it exudes oxygen. Plants use carbon dioxide from the air to grow parts that eventually fall to the ground to decompose or get washed away by the ...

When the wildfire reached Jon Cummings’ backyard last summer, it had already traversed 50 miles of rugged terrain in Idaho’s Salmon-Challis National Forest. Thick smoke dimmed daylight and embers sailed on hot currents. While firefighters were ...   
19/4/2013
A new global-scale modeling study that takes into account nitrogen -- a key nutrient for plants -- estimates that carbon emissions from human activities on land were 40 percent higher in the 1990s than in studies that did not account for ...   
30/3/2013
Billions of trees killed in the wake of mountain pine beetle infestations, ranging from Mexico to Alaska, have not resulted in a large spike in carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere, contrary to predictions, a UA-led study has ...

Illegal loggers beware: trees will soon be calling-literally-for backup. The Brazilian government has begun fixing trees with a wireless device, known as Invisible Tracck, which will allow trees to contact authorities after being felled and ...

REDD Scare Over Tropics, Dissident Voice
NASA satellites recently between April 1 and June 30 have picked up extensive signals confirming what surfaced since quite a long time ago. The signals specify potential deforestation across large parts of the tropics-encompassing Columbia, ...
