Scientists just found tropical forests are no longer sucking up carbon. Terrifyingly, they're emitting it
So much of the Earth’s forest has been destroyed that the tropics now emit more carbon than they capture, scientists have found. Tropical forests previously acted as a vital carbon “sink”, taking carbon from the atmosphere and turning it into oxygen, but the trend has reversed: they now emit almost twice as much carbon as they consume. Scientists said ending deforestation and degradation in the tropics could reduce global carbon emissions by 8 per cent.
While the Arctic Ocean is largely a carbon sink, parts are also a source of atmospheric carbon dioxide
"While the Arctic Ocean Is Largely a Carbon Sink, Parts Are Also a Source of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide...A few Arctic regions where waters were warmest were actually less able to store carbon. Instead, these regions -- such as the Barents Sea, near Greenland -- were a carbon source, emitting carbon dioxide to the atmosphere..."
