Since most of the wood pellets are derived from newly harvested trees, the immediate impact on Earth’s climate is worse than coal.
Trees remove a lot of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere
The incidence of forest fire is likely to increase in a warmer, drier world.
Without carbon dioxide uptake by trees, its concentration in the atmosphere would be rising nearly twice as fast as we observe today.
We better watch out for Santa, the elves, and the reindeer or we’ll not hear those hooves on the rooftop.
The opposition to global warming theory would melt in the face of an experiment with five Earth’s receiving no treatment and five Earth’s with CO2 added to the atmosphere
Policies devoted to bioenergy should be redirected toward efforts to protect terrestrial carbon stocks and recarbonize the biosphere.
Plants modulate the turning of the hydrologic cycle by reducing surface runoff, increasing the amount of water that enters the soil, and returning it slowly to the atmosphere by transpiration
No matter how much carbon they assimilate, the carbon uptake by an existing mature forest is not additional,
Most folks don’t realize it, but the roots of plants are connected underground by a vast network of fungi that improve the function of plant roots
