By taking carbon out of the atmosphere and locking it away in their bodies, trees have partially been making up for the CO2 we continue to spew from our power plants, tailpipes, and factories".
Scientists from the #CrowtherLab at #ETHZurich have for the first time visualised how these climate shifts will play out on a global scale, looking at how conditions in 520 major cities around the world are predicted to change in just three decades.
"By using optimistic #ClimateChange scenario, we represent conservative changes in conditions ..."

Focus on atmospheric aerosol particles.
