The earth is getting hotter. The climate is becoming more unfriendly. Since the industrial revolution, the culprit of these global trends is the climate change-rooted human consumption of carbon, as climate change science informs us.
This science is basically “reverse engineering” as scientists have looked into the present climate to understand the processes of change over a millennium.
The science has two main objectives: First to reduce the level of carbon consumption and to reverse the process of change through the mitigation of carbon release. Second is to adapt to the changes that are likely to bring harmful effects.
The forestry sector can contribute to achieving these two objectives through regrowing forests to capture the carbon and, once the forest is regrown, providing better ecosystem services to the human population that may prevent floods and suppo...
