With deaths of forests, world losing climate protectors

This in-depth science feature, from the NYT, spells it out in quiet detail. I wish, though, that the authors of the feature had also talked about how sprawl development and attendant road-building is fragmenting and destroying native forests. Hell, I saw this kind of thing going on all the time while living in northeastern Pennsylvania, a region that had already lost much of its native forests from anthracite coal-mining stripping operations over the decades. And still, the public motors on as is if there is no harm to their carbon dioxide-creating activities.
