Forest restoration could remove 10 years’ worth of carbon emissions. According to a recent study published in the journal Science, restoring degraded forests on a global scale could remove the equivalent of 10 years’ worth of carbon emissions from the atmosphere. The study estimates that there are 0.9 billion hectares of degraded land worldwide that could be restored to forest, which would remove an estimated 205 gigatons of carbon from the atmosphere. This underscores the importance of reforestation and forest restoration efforts in mitigating the effects of climate change.
