Breathing Planet

NASA scientists have utilized satellite data to produce a computer model of the biological processes across the world. The image shown here shows the global distribution of release and absorption of carbon dioxide in a typical June. Overall this process balances out. However, the model has shown that the amount of carbon dioxide released by plant decomposition is 10 times higher than humans produce by burning fossil fuels. this fact is vital when the possibility of a 'runaway greenhouse effect' is considered.
