Group of distinguished ecologists ask Obama to help save rainforests

Date : 23rd September 2009, Source : Mongabay



A group of distinguished ecologists have asked President Obama to push for the inclusion of tropical forests in climate policy. In an open letter published Wednesday, dozens of U.S. ecologists called for the Obama administration to support forest conservation as a means to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Deforestation and forest degradation accounts for 15-18 percent of human-caused CO2 emissions, a share greater than all the world's cars, trucks, planes, and ships combined.
