Terrible news - BBC Report
" The decline in global sink efficiency suggests that stabilisation of atmospheric CO2 is even more difficult to achieve than previously thought."

This reminds me of what now seems to be a hopelessly discordant view Corporate Social Responsibility, from Milton Friedman: "There is one and only one social responsibility of business - to use its resources and engage in activities designed to increase its profits so long as it stays within the rules of the game, which is to say, engages in open and free competition without deception or fraud."

You could agree with this, in so far as corporate policy that is not aimed at environmental sustainability is both deceptive and fraudulent.
