Whether you believe that global warming has placed us on the eve of destruction or that it is merely a cycle within the normal parameters of climate change, everyone believes that nature has an innate ability to heal itself.
The tree carbon sequestration of the Amazon rainforest is 30 tons of CO2 per hectare or 12 tons per acre. The Amazon rainforest sequesters more CO2 than most other forests because it is located close to the equator. It is one of the world’s largest natural sequesterers of CO2 and also sequesters other greenhouse gases found in the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), and nitrous oxide (NO2) all contribute to the Greenhouse Effect by absorbing the infrared rays produced as the sun warms the earth.
The rainforest is nature’s most efficient tool to balance and rejuvenate the air that we breathe and the water we drink.
We firmly believe that by reducing the destruction of the planet’s largest rainforest, we sustain oxygen levels, secure the sequestered carbon dioxide, and enable a slowdown of the effects of global climate disruption.
Everyone agrees that protecting the Amazon Rainforest is the right thing to do.
