Abstract:

'An overpowering financial case for investing in the world's arboreal lungs ... Eliasch hacks his way through a thicket of facts and figures to argue that we could halve the costs of fixing the climate if carbon markets gave credit for preserving trees ... the obstacles are formidable but Mr Eliasch's basic case is unanswerable.' The Guardian An area of forest the size of England is cut down in the tropics each year. Forestry is responsible for a fifth of global carbon emissions - more than the entire world transport sector. Urgent action to tackle the loss of global forests needs to be a central.
