  1. Vegetation also stores carbon so there is nothing left to store or absorb the carbon

  2. Several years worth of back burning included.

    Can’t tax that footprint can you?

  3. But if natural disasters cause emissions, then it proves humans have no effect on climate change

    /s

    > Australia's Fires Are Emitting Vast Amounts Of Carbon The Australian bushfires are emitting huge amounts of climate warming carbon into the atmosphere.

    > As fires burn, chewing through structures and vegetation, they spit out vast amounts of carbon and other compounds in their smoke.

    > "Climate impacts the fires, and the fires can potentially impact climate, and we don't know where we're going," says Buchholz, who is from Australia and has spent the last few weeks there avoiding the oppressive smoke.

  5. This is what people dont understand about feed back loops. We dont have till 2100, or even 2050. We have 10 years before the collaps.
