Trees are not very effective as carbon sinks

trees may not be the insurance against global warming we all thought they were. Their ability to store carbon dioxide has diminished due to rise in temperatures and hence they will not be able to act as carbon sinks. Scientists studied two decades of temperature and carbon dioxide data in the northern hemisphere and concluded that the carbon balance is highly sensitive to temperature changes in autumn and spring. They analysed the relationship for forests at latitudes above 20
