It’s one of the best carbon sinks we have. Forests in the US, Europe, and Russia socked away more than 700 million tons of carbon a year during the 1980s and 1990s. You could say the same of the Western Ghats and the 2,400-km stretch of the Himalaya. Join movements to protect them. Take your kids on walks into the forest. Savour these marvels. Breathe the rare air. Think of how our city life destroys, slowly, these rich green treasures.
