Forests and climate


Making sense of the headlines, propaganda (of both sides) and the actual science of your average ‘green’ issue can take a bit of an effort. Personally I find it helps to read a few related articles together as this gives me a greater opportunity to connect the dots, understand the issues and spot the spin.

Three recent articles from the Independent Newspaper provide an interesting picture of the links between our forests and climate:
