The most recent David Ellsworth’s quote is: “The world pays a lot of attention to climate change modelling, including predictions on the amount of carbon that will be stored in trees. These reports are based on models and data taken largely from temperate forests where nutrients are in adequate supply, meaning that estimates on carbon absorption do not account for nutrient shortages on forest productivity. Australia's soils are very old and weathered by millions of years of sun and rain, meaning soils are very low in nutrients, and most of the available nutrients are tied up inside wood, leaves and roots.”.

The world pays a lot of attention to climate change modelling, including predictions on the amount of carbon that will be stored in trees. These reports are based on models and data taken largely from temperate forests where nutrients are in adequate supply, meaning that estimates on carbon absorption do not account for nutrient shortages on forest productivity. Australia's soils are very old and weathered by millions of years of sun and rain, meaning soils are very low in nutrients, and most of the available nutrients are tied up inside wood, leaves and roots.

It means that our soils simply lack the available nutrients that would let trees take advantage of the extra CO2 they find in the air.
