Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think the study you mention does seem, somewhat, to agree with the research published in Nature. What those researchers were looking at were the affects a warmer environment has on boreal forests.

While not part of their study, the tropical rainforests do seem to be key in slowing down global warming.

I wonder though, if by the time we fully understand -- as in science has reached a consensus -- the effect forests it will be too late to best utilize the knowledge?
