Kelp’s Carbon Sink Potential Could Be Blocked by Coastal Darkening Hakai Magazine

"...The scientists found that because of the sunlight-blocking effect of particulate pollution, the darkest site received 63 percent less sunlight than the lightest one. The dearth of light meant that at the darkest site, the kelp’s primary productivity—the rate at which it converts energy from the sun into organic matter—was 95 percent lower. The kelps growing there accumulated two times less biomass..."

Letting Carbon Sink with the Fishes Hakai Magazine

"...Kelly Fretwell works on science communication for the Hakai Institute. Her love of biodiversity and coastal ecology comes in part from growing up exploring shorelines and forests near her home on the south coast of British Columbia, as well as from her academic background in biology, environmental studies, and marine management. When not working to connect people with nature, Kelly escapes to the outdoors to hike, camp, and explore, preferably with a dog..."

Letter: Old growth trees are worth more standing than when cut

"...Besides the economic value, mature forests provide many functions that keep the planet healthy. They are important for carbon sequestration and the survival of many plant and animal species. Parenthetically, the old growth forest areas licensed to be clear-cut are known to be the home of at least two endangered species, and likely more: the Old Growth Specklebelly Lichen and the Marbled Murrelet..."

As Sask. grasslands decline, here are the Liberal government's conservation promises Globalnews.ca

"...“Grasslands have an important role to play, and protecting them is an important vehicle for ensuring carbon sequestration,” Prebble said. “We face a crisis in terms of climate change. We're trying to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and we can use nature to draw carbon out of the atmosphere..."
