Tropical forests -- Earth's air conditioner
...al Laboratory, found that because tropical forests store
large amounts of carbon and produce reflective clouds, they are especially good at cooling the planet. In contrast, forests in snowy areas can warm the Earth, because their dark canopy absorbs sunlight that would otherwise be reflected back to space ...
Grape expectations for healthier wine
