ABSTRACT
The author discusses the U.S. Greenhouse Gas Inventory from 1990 to 2010. He says that the inventory estimates a decline in carbon stocks and an increase in annual carbon sequestration rate. He emphasizes that these efforts do not obscure the role of forests in mitigating the emission of greenhouse gases (GHG). He stresses that there is a need to recalculate the full trend line back to 1990 if GHG sources change.
