Research shows that 25% of climate change can be attributed to deforestation. Trees have a positive impact on climate change, they remove carbon dioxide from the air, store carbon and then release oxygen into the atmosphere.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
CO2 is the most common of the greenhouse gasses and is used as the benchmark/measure of things that warm the atmosphere. More CO2 in the Earth’s atmosphere causes thermal energy to become trapped and the planet to become warmer. The most compelling climate change evidence includes long term data relating to atmospheric CO2 levels and global temperature.
Natural forests capture CO2, acting as carbon sinks. Every year, forests and trees absorb the equivalent of 2 billion tonnes of CO2, roughly 1/3 of all CO2 released from the burning of fossil fuels.
Absorb Harmful Gases
In addition to absorbing CO2, trees also absorb harmful pollutant gases such as sulphur dioxide, ozone, ammonia, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides.
Deforestation attributes to climate change by releasing stores of CO2. Roughly 18% of global emissions comes from deforestation (5-10 GtCO2e) which is more than the world’s entire transport sector.
Trees and forests are often referred to as the ‘lungs of the planet’ for a very simple reason: they produce oxygen. It is estimated that 1 acre of trees can provide the oxygen requirements of 12 people for a year.*
