The Carbon Cycle (in a nutshell)

 

The recycling of Carbon on the earth is an essential process as it helps maintain the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.

 

Carbon is stored (locked up) in fossil fuels, the sea, organic material and the atmosphere.

This balance was evenly maintained …. until we came along and started to cut down trees or burn fossil fuels, increasing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.
