  Rising CO2 Enhances Carbon Sequestration

Agro-Ecosystems and Grasslands

Forests

CO2-induced carbon sequestration has been observed in the soils of several agro-ecosystems; and the potential for it to occur in natural grasslands and savannas has been clearly demonstrated.  Of all of Earth's ecosystems, however, forests hold the greatest potential for removing CO2 from the atmosphere and storing its carbon; and they can do so via processes that remain viable for millennia. 

In fact, there is considerable evidence that Earth's forests are already sequestering vast amounts of carbon in response to the aerial fertilization effect of the ongoing rise in the air's CO2 content that is fueling increases in forest productivity and range expansions across the globe.
