Top Pro & Con Arguments
Human-produced CO2 is re-absorbed by oceans, forests, and other “carbon sinks,” negating any climate changes.
A paper published in Asia-Pacific Journal of Atmospheric Sciences found that some climate models overstated how much warming would occur from additional C02 emissions.  About 50% of the CO2 released by the burning of fossil fuels and other human activities has already been re-absorbed by the earth’s carbon sinks.  From 2002-2011, 26% of human-caused CO2 emissions were absorbed specifically by the world’s oceans.  A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found evidence that forests are increasing their growth rates in response to elevated levels of CO2,  which will in turn, lower atmospheric CO2 levels.Read More
