Based on long-term data on atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations, an international group of scientists, coordinated by the Laboratory for Sciences of Climate and Environment from Université paris-Saclay (CEA / CNRS / UVSQ), discovered that northern hemisphere vegetation was absorbing larger and larger amounts of human-produced CO2, thus helping to slow global warming. These results appeared in Nature, April 3, 2019.
