Modern CO2 Emissions From The Activities of Man. Twenty thousand years ago, when humans were still nomadic hunters and gatherers, low concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere allowed the earth to fall into the grip of an ice age. But despite decades of research, the reasons why levels of the greenhouse gas were so […]

New Research Into The Amount of CO2 Our Forests Can Absorb. Scientists have long believed that the world’s forests play an important role in limiting the amount of atmospheric CO2, as they act as a carbon sink, absorbing CO2 and expelling oxygen. This role is vitally important as we struggle to limit atmospheric carbon while […]
