Sequestration is trees capturing CO2 and returning O2. Burning down all the forests is releasing that carbon back to the atmosphere, so is burning coal and oil. So somewhere along that path we run out of trees and breathable air. Trees also fix the soil so a forest retains and filters water so we can drink it.
Without breathable air and drinkable water we are pretty much screwed.
like that is the be-all fact about climate change that people in suits and on the news are talking about?
forgive my ignorance.
i have seen a few videos with the argument that it acts as a blanket redirecting heat reflected off the planet right back down. sort of like a heat battery. but wouldnt it reflect the heat coming from the sun back out in space?
