Afforestation is a crucial strategy for combating climate change

While investigating the future of Earth’s climate, the authors found significant connections between large-scale tectonics and climate change.

The clouds cool down because of their higher albedo.

It has to be taken into consideration in this respect that scientists have developed several models to predict the future climate of the Earth.

Conversely, a totally white surface would have 1, which means that all the sunlight is reflected back and none is absorbed.

The study mentions the supercontinental cycle, and reveals that continents concentrate in super-continents and are distributed over a cycle of 400 to 600 million years.

On a scale of albedo assessments for habitual surfaces, snow is now much higher than forest vegetation.

One is Amazonia, a high latitude northern supercontinent that might evolve after around 200 million years; the other is Aurica, a low latitude supercontinent that may evolve in the next 250 million years.


Earth is the third planet from the Sun and the only astronomical object known to harbor and support life. About 29.2% of Earth’s surface is land consisting of continents and islands. The remaining 70. (wikipedia)

Climate change

Climate change includes both global warming driven by human-induced emissions of greenhouse gases and the resulting large-scale shifts in weather patterns. (wikipedia)
