Impact As Costly As Carbon From Fossil Fuels In the face of climate change, scientists often focus on the harmful effects of greenhouse gas emissions, but new research shows that tropical deforestation triggers global changes that are just as costly as carbon pollution. Clearing trees not only releases carbon into the atmosphere, adding to the greenhouse

East Africa Prepared To Conserve Forests, Reforest Degraded Land When it comes to climate change, much of the conversation is limited to energy policies. Meanwhile, wholesale deforestation is releasing staggering amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere every day, while eliminating nature’s ability to absorb carbon dioxide from the air. Deforestation impacts climate change in two

Mother Nature Calling For Help Deforestation is out of control. Forests are going at the speed of light and so are the plants and animals that live within them. A public relations and public affairs firm from the United States (Denver, New York and Phoenix) has offered to be the hired gun for the voiceless and
