Posted Tue Aug 5 2008: from Toronto Globe and Mail:
Virgin forests more efficient at storing carbon http://apocadocs.com/s.pl?1217954095
"Untouched natural forests store three times more carbon dioxide than previously estimated and 60 per cent more than plantation forests, a new Australian study of "green carbon" and its role in climate change says. Green carbon occurs in natural forests, brown carbon is found in industrialized forests or plantations, grey carbon in fossil fuels and blue carbon in oceans. Australian National University scientists said that the role of untouched forests and their biomass of green carbon had been underestimated in the fight against global warming."
