Journey to the Sinking Lands

A witness to the world's first evacuation of an entire people due to climate change

There is hope (?)

I think I have understood this right ( if not, please correct me). Trees, it seems, are soaking up more CO2 than we thought, and are actually getting bigger – and soaking up more – as we pump out more carbon.

And its a lot more: “Over the world’s tropical forests, this extra “carbon sink” effect adds up to 4.8bn tonnes of CO2 removed each year – close to the total carbon dioxide emissions from the US.”

If so, doesn’t that mean that the climate prediction models are wrong? Might we have more time than we thought?

Even so.
