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".

 Scientific studies find that the temperature increases at least 5 to 10°
 in a clearcut, while the humidity drops
35%

This changes the climate locally and  increases fire danger.

It takes decades to centuries for carbon to accumulate in the "forest carbon bank".
