Deforestation and Climate Change – Climate Institute

It is estimated that 25% of the world's total greenhouse gas production comes from deforestation alone. Furthermore, forests around the world store more than double the amount of carbon cioxide than is found in the atmosphere. This means that when areas are deforested, the carbon dioxide stored in those trees is released into the atmosphere.
