Climate Change?

I meant to add that when you chop down a tree, not only do you remove its capability to absorb CO2, but also cause the release of the "stored" CO2.

I think that there are 2 issues here fidget: yes plants do take up CO2, but they also release it during normal cellular metabolism, and, secondly the massive destruction of forests, has meant that there are not enough trees to utilise the increased production of CO2.


Plankton also releases CO2 in the same way that plants and trees do.

Lovely winter's day here, but very cold. Did a couple of hours weeding and have not warmed up since.


Expecting minus 6 overnight, hopefully start to kill off all the pests.

Me too.


Undoubtedly climate change will occur, that is nothing to do with us, but we have made the situation far worse and have a very limited time to try to reverse some of these changes.

I agree H-C. I was wary about starting this thread, knowing the problems we have had in the recent past, but I am genuinely interested to find out how the people with the opposite view to mine explain their logic.

Sat in front of light box whilst catching up with you all.


As usual absolutely captivated by Attenborough, you know how much you enjoy a programme when it finishes and you can't believe an hour has gone.
