Terrestrial Climate
Earth's terrestrial ecosystems have absorbed 186 billion to 192 billion tons of carbon since the mid-20th century

Researchers based at Princeton University found that Earth's terrestrial ecosystems have absorbed 186 billion to 192 billion tons of carbon since the mid-20th century, which has significantly contained the global temperature and levels of carbon in the atmosphere. The study is the first to specify the extent to which plants have prevented climate change since pre-industrial times. Credit: Princeton University
