             A recent United Nations study claims that rising forest density around the planet is aiding the decrease in greenhouse gases by capturing more carbon.  Deforestation is cited as contributing emissions somewhere between 12 to 20 percent.  Forest Density is not described as more numbers of trees, but the density, or average size of the trees in the forests.
     ;     ;  I wonder if the study takes into account the hundreds of thousands of acres of forest that burned across the United States, Australia, Europe and the rest of the planet this year alone?
