The boreal forests of Siberia, which store 40000 million tons of carbon and account for 25% of all non-ocean carbon absorption in the northern hemisphere, play a critical role in maintaining global climate balance. Siberia's forests, however, are being destroyed and degraded at an ever-increasing rate. This paper discusses the impact of Siberia's forests on the global carbon cycle, and what political and economic steps can be taken to ensure their preservation.
