Climate change largely has to do with Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases, called as such because they help trap the Sun’s heat much like a winter garden or greenhouse does. The world’s forests absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, converting it into organic carbon, which is found in all living things. It’s this simple: the more forests we have, the more carbon we take out of the atmosphere. By protecting our forests we also help trap carbon that is already causing climate change. It’s up to us to make the change.
