Title and possible merge[edit]

The title should be in lower case, with the exception to the first letter (i.e. "Land use, land-use change and forestry"). I also wonder if this merits to be an article on its own. It should most likely be merged with either land use or deforestation or related articles. ~ UBeR 22:59, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Reference to Cement Production[edit]

there is a minor reference on this page to "cement production" being a major contributor to carbon emissions. I went to the Cement page ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cement ) to find hidden in the Climate section that it produces 5% of all man-made CO2 emissions. Wow !! Can the reference in this page be a link direct to the climate section under "cement" ? Sorry - my Wiki skills are still developing Rzyzkc (talk) 07:04, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Add Portal:Global warming[edit]

Add Portal:Global warming. See

I don't see a connection. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 00:12, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
You don't have to, others have seen it. 141.218.36.152 (talk) 00:14, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
Fixed. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 00:18, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
See Template talk:Global warming now. 141.218.36.152 (talk) 00:40, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
I recently added a few entries to the template. The main link between land use change/forestry to global warming IMO is that the IPCC uses it as a net climate forcing; changes in land use artificially change Earth's albedo (ie. forest-to-desert would increase albedo, increasing local cooling, while removal of forests decreases Earth's net carbon sink, assuming it is still a sink, thus increasing global warming through higher GHGs). Are there any other areas of dispute? ~AH1 (discuss!) 00:46, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
As far as I can tell, this article should not exist. It started as a combination of land use and deforestation, and has taken a WP:POVFORK from there. In any case, those articles should be in the template and portal. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 02:26, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
