THE OCEAN, A CARBON SINK A carbon sink is a natural or artificial reservoir that absorbs and stores the atmosphere’s carbon with physical and biological mechanisms. Coal, oil, natural gases, methane hydrate and limestone are all examples of carbon sinks. After long processes and under certain conditions, these sinks have stored carbon for millennia. On

To reach climate neutrality in 2050, we need deep emission cuts as well as sustainable solutions for removing and recycling carbon. Part of the solution is in clean technologies and part of it in nature-based solutions. Carbon farming restores carbon cycles, enables our natural carbon sinks to absorb more carbon and rewards land managers for taking care of nature. 🌲🪱🌿 Credit @ourplanet_eu #discoverearthlife #discoverearths Recycling, Earth, Outdoor, Nature, Water, Discover, Farm, Carbon, Earthlife

Climate change is the biggest and most controversial environmental issue of our times. Or rather, the cause of climate change is. The fact that the Earth's climate has changed over its history - sometimes with cataclysmic consequences, called mass extinctions, for many of the planet's inhabitants - is not disputed. How

Carbon Cycle diagram from IPCC 4th Assessment Report with numerical values of sizes of flows and reservoirs shown Climate Change, Nitrogen Cycle, Carbon Cycle, Greenhouse Gases, Water Cycle, Carbon Sink, Carbon, Environmental Education, Global Warming

This diagrams illustrates Earth's carbon cycle. It shows how carbon atoms 'flow' between various 'reservoirs' in the Earth system. Reservoirs are shown as rectangular blocks; flows between reservoirs are indicated by arrows. The sizes of reservoirs are in units of gigatons of carbon (GtC). Flows between reservoirs are in units of gigatons of carbon per year (GtC yr-1). Red
