Why Save Forests: Climate Change

The clearing and burning of forest lands account for almost 20% of all global Green House Gas (GHG) emissions. In comparison, the global transportation sector (which includes road, rail and air travel) emits 14% of all GHG emissions.
There is more carbon in Forests than in the atmosphere. That is why to keep Forests standing is the easiest way to combat climate change.
The Forests of the Western Ghats are vital carbon sinks. We have estimated the total carbon stocks of some of the forest patches we have protected.
