CARBON SINK: How efficient can these sinks be, knowing that humans cause most CO2 emissions? "Carbon sinks are natural systems that suck up and store carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.  The main natural carbon sinks are plants, the ocean and soil."

What is a Carbon Sink?

DEFINITION 3 Carbon Sink: "are natural systems that suck up and store carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The main natural carbon sinks are plants, the ocean and soil. Plants grab carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to use in photosynthesis"

Humans accidentally created hidden carbon sink in the desert

The salty aquifers beneath deserts may be storing more carbon than all living plants put together, according to new data from arid regions of China

Carbon Sink by British artist Chris Drury. The sculpture, a 36-foot spiral of logs morphing into charred coal, is constructed from trees that have died from skyrocketing beetle infestations across the western United States.

Fewer than exist today, given current trends. Rapid global warming could cause human extinction within the next couple of centuries, despite our advancing technology. More people means more greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon sinks are turning into sources and clean energy won't be enough to fix the crisis. And though I'm hopeful about GMOs, there are serious and growing threats to food production like ocean acidification, extinction and soil loss.

"While the Arctic Ocean Is Largely a Carbon Sink, Parts Are Also a Source of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide...A few Arctic regions where waters were warmest were actually less able to store carbon. Instead, these regions -- such as the Barents Sea, near Greenland -- were a carbon source, emitting carbon dioxide to the atmosphere..."

Arctic tundra stores carbon during the summer and releases some of it during the winter. But a new study shows that carbon released during the winter now outweighs the summertime gains, resulting i…

A new study shows that carbon released during the winter now outweighs the summertime gains resulting in a net loss of carbon to the atmosphere suggesting the northern tundra may be shifting from its historical role as a carbon sink to a carbon source.
