How to protect your ecosystem from climate change
What does the science say about how much carbon dioxide the planet is emitting into the atmosphere?
And how can you make sure that you’re putting CO2 into the ground that will absorb and sequester that carbon, to make it more valuable for humanity?
And what does it mean for ecosystems to survive and thrive?
We asked ecologists and climate scientists to help us understand the science and the challenges facing the Earth and its people.
The science: There is growing consensus among scientists that humans are responsible for the greenhouse effect, and that CO2 emissions are the dominant cause of the planet’s warming.
Scientists have estimated that the amount of carbon dioxide emitted annually is equivalent to more than 400,000 tons of CO2 emitted into the air, or nearly three times the amount emitted by the burning of fossil fuels over the last 150 years.
That number includes the direct emissions of carbon into the earth’s atmosphere, which the world has burned since the Industrial Revolution, and indirect emissions, which happen naturally through photosynthesis.
The Earth absorbs more CO2 from the atmosphere than it can absorb directly, so as the Earth absorbs it, its surface temperature rises and its water content falls.
The oceans absorb less CO2 than the atmosphere.
In the future, scientists predict, the oceans will absorb twice as much CO2 as they currently absorb, and they will absorb more than half as much.
The problem with this story is that there is no agreement among climate scientists as to what the amount is.
For example, scientists who study global climate change say that the rate of CO1 emissions, a measure of the concentration of CO 2 in the atmosphere, is higher than the amount that is being emitted.
That is, they say, the concentration is rising, not decreasing.
But there are many other factors that can influence the rate at which CO2 enters the atmosphere: weather, soil, and plant life can respond to CO2 levels by altering the way they absorb it.
The ocean absorbs CO2 more slowly than the land, and so does the air.
And the water content of the oceans, lakes, and rivers is also affected by weather.
Scientists also use different methods to estimate the amount and types of COs in the air and how much of it is absorbed.
Some scientists estimate that the average annual amount of CO in the sky is about 350 parts per million, while others, like the European Union’s Climate Assessment Centre, have estimated CO2 in the lower 400 parts per billion range.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s National Climatic Data Center has also estimated that average annual CO levels in the United States have increased by about 10 parts per trillion since the late 1990s.
Scientists have also discovered that the oceans are changing in response to CO 2 levels.
In 2003, a new technique was developed to determine how fast the ocean’s CO 2 absorbs and converts to heat.
Scientists use data from ships and buoys to measure the rate by which the ocean absorbs the CO 2 from the air or from the soil.
This information can be used to determine the amount or types of carbon stored in the oceans.
The numbers: Scientists estimate that in the next few decades, CO2 will be a major factor in the amount the oceans absorb.
The amount of that absorption is about 30 percent higher than in the 1990s, and scientists expect that this will continue.
That means that, in the future at least, ocean water will absorb around twice as many CO 2 as it does today.
This is one of the reasons that some scientists say the ocean should be more sensitive to the carbon dioxide levels that it absorbs, since the ocean has a higher rate of absorbing CO 2 than it does absorbing it directly.
Scientists say that by 2080, ocean waters will absorb about three times as much carbon as they do today.
So, if the oceans take in more CO 2 , they will have a bigger impact on global warming than if the ocean absorbed all the CO2 that it emitted in the past decade.
What to do about it: Some people say that reducing the amount we’re emitting should be a priority for the next president.
But many environmentalists argue that the best way to reduce CO2 is to stop burning fossil fuels.
If we keep burning fossil fuel, the planet will continue to warm and its ecosystems will continue the process of dying off.
That’s because the amount absorbed by the ocean is also changing.
It has absorbed more CO than it is able to absorb directly and indirectly, and it is likely to absorb more CO at some point in the foreseeable future.
