Finnish study shows cooling effect of forests.

Aerosol is the word today. As we are used to assosiate the word with spraycans and deodorants it has a little bit negative connontation.

However Finnish Aerosol Research reveals that forrest are functioning as controllers of warmth on earth. Forests emit aerosol particles that reflect sunlight and warmth back to the space. These aerosil clouds are born as a side effect photosyntesis that ultimately supports life on earth.

Warming increases the growth of forests that consequently adds more aerosol production to cool down the warming. Concern however is the rapid depletion of worlds forests. Comming years the forests will be used as a method to get more liberties within Kioto and EU treaties concerning the control of global warming.
