Averting the Climate Change Abyss
This book explains why preserving and restoring tropical forests, especially the Amazon, is one of the keys to curbing climate change. It starts with a Humpty Dumpty parable and ends with a tale about three climatologists stranded on a desert island. In between, it elucidates the importance of tropical forests as a repository of biodiversity, home to indigenous people, and a storehouse for carbon. Short and succinct, it also provides an easy-to-follow roadmap on how businesses, institutions, and individuals can offset their carbon footprint through the Voluntary Carbon Market, which topped one billion dollars in trades in 2021 and is expected to expand 15 fold by the end of the decade.
For those who want to know more about the plight of tropical rainforests, a compelling and lengthy epilogue recounts how and why rainforests came under siege starting in the 1960s.
