Another Confusing Report for Carbon Emissions
The World Wildlife Federation is recognized as a leader in conservation of wildlife and habitations for many years. Earlier this year on October 20 the WWF made the astonishing announcement concerning deforestation. Within two weeks (and three days), today a report supplied from Bloomberg.com appears to negate the findings. The world has many confusing assumptions as to the real cause of carbon emissions, because of competing interest groups.
The obvious question boils down to what the population remembers when it comes to understanding the rhetoric. The WWF announced, “the discovery of 13 million hectares of deforestation, or 36 football fields a minute,” have been wiped off the face of the planet. This surely caused panic to those who make a profit from deforestation. The answer is a counter report emerging to distract and remove the destruction from the forefront of individuals that have voiced, used the courts, and other methods set up to stop the ill gotten gains. As quoted from a researcher at VU University in Amsterdam, “Deforestation’s relative contribution to global carbon emission has declined as pollution from fossil fuels increased.”
The work that goes into the studies normally takes a while to compile, thus having the data to support any findings effectively. Studies are efforts meant to bring awareness to the population concerning the actions that harm efforts in restoring the climate. There are people that would like to have something positive to report. However, again, a scathing report of 36 footballs field a minute will produce quicker reports in an effort to debunk the efforts, of even creditable establishments.
What will it take to bring those who produce reports with such quickness to become aware that this hurts the system of stabilization? Perhaps a walk on an empty, newly formed football field could help.
