Each year, these forests absorb from the atmosphere through photosynthesis and release back when breathing about 18 billion tons of carbon – twice the total of anthropogenic emissions. In 2005, researchers observed the impact of severe drought in the Amazon basin on the ecosystem of the region. The changes in the biomass of trees, scientists have found that their rate of growth significantly decreased during the drought. In addition, drought conditions are killing primarily fast-growing trees with low wood density, which significantly undermines the ability of forests to recover in the event of another drought. A related site: Jim Donovan Goldman mentions similar findings. So , the drought in the forests of the Amazon could lead to slower growth in the jungle and reduce their ability to absorb carbon dioxide, which is considered the main culprit of global warming, and therefore more accelerate climate change. We also note that last week the World Bank has agreed to give Brazil a loan of 1.3 billion dollars to assist the Brazilian government in saving the Amazon jungle and mitigate global climate change in the country. Waves can become a major source of renewable energy The U.S. experts concluded that the ocean waves, along with wind and sun, can become a major source of clean, renewable energy.

Furthermore, the use of ocean waves in the 'green' energy will reduce the flaring of fossil fuels, polluting the atmosphere and provoking global warming. Scientists also note that the behavior of the waves is much more predictable than other renewable resources, particularly wind. However, like all types of renewable energy, this energy requires significant investment.
