Deforestation and Greenhouse Gases: Infographic

The destruction and degradation of forestland, caused mainly by expanded agricultural activity in tropical developing countries, currently accounts for roughly 12 percent of all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Slowing or eliminating forest loss can potentially make a cost-effective contribution to an international effort to reduce global emissions, but that strategy faces a number of challenges.

Where do greenhouse gases come from?

This chart from the United Nations Environment Programme (click to embiggen) looks complicated, sort of like a traffic sign cross-bred with a banyan tree. But it basically just traces the path of greenhouse gases from polluting industries, through uses, out into the atmosphere. So you can tell at a glance, for instance, that energy industries […]
