"The flip side is that if the Earth wasn't taking up all that CO2, we would be experiencing much more warming over the last 50 years than we have observed”, said Ashley Ballantyne, lead author.
Published in the journal Nature recently, a report has unveiled that while little is being done to reduce emissions causing rise in global warming, the planet Earth is itself proving to be a helping hand. According to researchers, the same signifies that the content of greenhouse gases being absorbed by land and oceans has doubled since 1960.
It is being said by the team from the University of Colorado that the nature has helped soaking up nearly 55% of the total greenhouse gas emissions in a period of last 50 years. The Global Carbon Project has also revealed similar findings, saying the absorption has reached up to five billion tonnes of carbon.
The reason behind the same, according to co-chair Corinne Le Quere, is the absorption of carbon dioxide by plants in high amount for growth. It has been told further that the rise was significant in 2010 as compared to 2.4 billion in
Thus, it is being hoped by the team that the reaction of nature to concentrations of man-made toxic gases could prove beneficial in understanding of climate change in more detail.
