In the last 20 years, the size of France forest has regrown naturally.
Climate change and deforestation have worried people all over the world. But the results revealed in a study have revealed that in the last 20 years, the forest of size of France has regrown naturally in the world in the last 20 years. According to conservation groups, these forests have absorbed about 5.9 gigatons of carbon dioxide from the earth during this period, which is higher than the US annual carbon emissions. Significantly, in recent years, many countries have been criticized for deforestation.
A team led by the WWF used satellite data to map the reopened forests. The regeneration of forests involves the remodeling of natural woodland without interference. William Baldwin-Cantello of the WWF stated that reintroduction of forests is often cheaper, better suited for carbon adsorption and biodiversity, than forests that are actively planted. But he said that the re-emergence of forests cannot be seen as a benefit. We have to stop deforestation and save the natural forests to avoid the dangers of climate change.
The forests reemerged in these areas
The study said that the Atlantic jungle present in Brazil is like a silver lining. After 2000, this forest has grown almost to the size of the Netherlands. At the same time, 1.2 million hectares of forest has grown on its own in northern Mongolia. In addition, the forests of Central Africa and Canada have also emerged as hotspots of self-growing forests. However, in spite of all this, researchers have warned that there is a significant threat to the forests around the world. He has said that even after the forests re-grow on the Atlantic coast of Brazil, the forests will have to grow at double the speed to reach the level of conservation.
Planting of trees is necessary for adsorption of carbon dioxide
The project is a joint venture between WWF, BirdLife International and WCS. They have asked other experts to come forward and help them, so that this map can be made in a better way. Explain that the easiest way to remove carbon dioxide from the earth is to plant trees. But scientists say that to be effective to reduce carbon emissions, the right trees should be planted at the right place. Only then will they be able to absorb carbon from the environment.
