Scientists Publish First Estimate of Carbon Emissions From 2014 Mega-Fires in Canada's Boreal Forests
As “mega-fires” in the boreal forest become more frequent and more intense, scientists believe the burning of these carbon-rich areas will drastically increase the amount of carbon being released into the atmosphere. But because these mega-fire...
