Forests spewing carbon

A rather ridiculous interpretation that dryland forests were big carbon sinks, and now they aren't because of global warming. If you looked at the airphotos of these forests, you would see they are a dynamic entity, with huge tornado tracks, and old burns everywhere. The only thing that makes a good carbon sink around here is a swamp. Massive burn-outs are probably the best thing for an insect-infested forest.
