The 2013 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) found that human-caused forest loss is responsible for about 10% of
global greenhouse gas emissions. Recent analyses show that global forest trends are working against efforts to address climate
change. The 2014 IPCC Report stated: "Carbon stored in the terrestrial biosphere is susceptible to ​loss to the atmosphere as a
​result of climate change, deforestation, and ecosystem degradation".

degrees in a clearcut, while the humidity drops 35%.
