Carbon Cycle

An article discussing the carbon cycle studies of Inez Fung.
 Fung's research analyzes whether the carbon sinks can keep pace with today's unprecedented levels of CO2 emissions.
This is an interesting subject which does not get a lot of headlines.  The one detail that cannot be denied is that humans have been taking fossil fuels out of the ground and letting the carbon dioxide return to the atmosphere. It took a long time for this CO2 to be buried and yet we are releasing it over a short time.
