Print media, electronic media and various medium shows the news, but its ends up showing one sided of the story. We never come to know the other side of story. With so much happening every day, every second across our neighborhood, society, and world it’s difficult for the news media to cover all the news. Many times we have felt wish we could share our voice, opinion, thoughts with the world. Many a times we have felt the frustration, anger and helplessness for not being able to do anything about an incident. Have you ever felt, for a good cause, you need support, but don’t know how to garner the support and attention. So, now you have an option “www.Clamorworld.com“. This is a platform to share everything you want to. A website 100% runs by the people for the people. The world is waiting to listen to your voice, the voice which has kept you suppressed so far. If you do not want to share the incident, event personally, please send it to us at contact@clamorworld.com, and we will share it on your behalf and assure to keep your name confidential.

Trees May Not Store As Much Carbon As We Thought, And This Could Affect Climate Change Studies

 

After studying “common” Australian trees, researchers at Western Sydney University in Australia have concluded that trees do not store as much carbon as previously thought. This new conclusion could drastically effect how climate change is tackled.

The study was published in the journal Nature Climate Change and also concluded that Eucalyptus forests may need extra nutrients from the soil to grow and so “take advantage” of spare carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Researchers partaking in the study exposed large areas of “remnant native eucalypt forest” to high levels of carbon dioxide and found that the gas did increase levels of photosynthesis but that did not increase its level in leaves, stems and wood.

These results could have a substantial effect on how climate change is approached, studied and tackled.
David Ellsworth, from the university’s Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment, “The world pays a lot of attention to climate change modelling, including predictions on the amount of carbon that will be stored in trees.

“These reports are based on models and data taken largely from temperate forests where nutrients are in adequate supply, meaning that estimates on carbon absorption do not account for nutrient shortages on forest productivity.”

His team also suggested that global numbers of carbon storage in forests may be high “since many of the world’s sub-tropical and tropical forested regions exist on low-nutrient soils.”

“Many greenhouse crops such as tomatoes, cut flowers and cucumbers are given added CO2 to make them grow bigger, faster and yield more fruit,” Ellsworth added.
