Claim: California’s Carbon Mitigation Efforts May be Thwarted by Climate Change Itself

“We need our forests and other plant-covered areas to provide a ‘natural climate solution’ of removing carbon dioxide from the air, but heat and drought caused by the very problem…

Claim: Climate Change Increases Risks of Tree Death

But all of that carbon in trees and forests worldwide could be thrown back into the atmosphere again if the trees burn up in a forest fire.

Will Planting Trees Reduce Global Warming?

The mutual relationships between forests and climate are actually really rather more complex and not fully understood.

Claim: Global team of scientists determine ‘fingerprint’ for how much heat, drought is too much for forests

How hot is too hot, and how dry is too dry, for the Earth’s forests?

Forest Degradation A Major Climatic Warming Driver, Study Finds. CO2-Induced Tree Growth Cools?

“The conclusion is that forest managers therefore have some control in climate change over how much the forests entrusted to them heat up and are potentially damaged as a result.…
