Ancient forests are disappearing before our eyes. Not only does forest loss eliminate wildlife habitat and harm biodiversity, it also releases tons of greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. Help us protect forests and the climate.
"While the Arctic Ocean Is Largely a Carbon Sink, Parts Are Also a Source of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide...A few Arctic regions where waters were warmest were actually less able to store carbon. Instead, these regions -- such as the Barents Sea, near Greenland -- were a carbon source, emitting carbon dioxide to the atmosphere..."
