Natural Carbon Sink

Natural Carbon Sink

The paper confirms that natural sinks continue to soak up our increasing anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, to the point that the sinks themselves are increasing their capacity to do so in the face of our increasing greenhouse gas emissions.

The concern has been that, at some point, these sinks will be degraded by the effects of the warming of our world and the changing of its climate due to the rising atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide. Fortunately, as the paper confirms, we are not yet at that point.
