Could DESERTS help solve climate change ? Arid wastelands absorb carbon dioxide but aren’t enough to save us, study claims

Mailonline (7 April 2014)

* Scientists have completed a 10-year CO2 study in the Mojave Desert
* They exposed plots of desert to different levels of carbon dioxide
* Found that the plots exposed to more absorbed it faster
* Suggests deserts are a previously unrecognised sink for CO2
* But it will not be enough to ’save us from climate change’
