55 But serious uncertainties remain about how to measure and account for estimates of net carbon. For example, how forest management activities affect soil carbon is unknown, and since forest soils contain over 50% of the total stored forest carbon in the US, this difference can have a significant impact on estimates. Also, some researchers have shown that sinks are not as effective as predicted when one accounts for the interaction of forest reserves and the timber market. The more land that is set aside for carbon sinks, the quicker the cycle of harvesting on other forestland, and the less total net carbon sequestration.

But does this mean that society is on the cusp of catastrophe? Not necessarilythe doomsayers have a terrible track record. g. a nuclear power accident. 43 When the outcome is potentially very bad, people inflate the chance Benefits and costs of Kyoto 31 that the outcome will be realized.
