Scientists from Northern Arizona University, Woodwell Climate Research Center (USA) and the University of Waikato (New Zealand) have conducted a study that showed that planet Earth is approaching a level when plants begin to lose the ability to photosynthesize, the most important chemical reaction required for all living things. zakon.kz with a link to Lenta.ru.
Even now, according to a study published in the journal Science Advances, the biosphere absorbs more carbon dioxide than it releases, the plant world is less intensively absorbing excess carbon from carbon dioxide produced by human activities.
Today, scientists note, the temperature peak has touched only 10 percent of the biosphere. But due to rapidly changing climatic conditions towards global warming and current rates of emissions, such a peak could reach up to half of the biome on the planet. And the first to be affected by carbon-rich rainforests in the Amazon and Southeast Asia and taiga in Russia and Canada.
