Carbon cycles through organic and inorganic stores over timescales ranging from hours to millions of years. Since the Industrial Revolution, humans have begun generating huge quantities of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide and methane, significantly affecting the carbon cycle.

In particular, the build-up of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is driving dramatic changes to the Earth’s climate. These changes threaten to have serious, even catastrophic effects on human health and welfare.
