If you think trees in the rainforest are pretty tall, a new tower being built in the Amazon to monitor climate change will make them look tiny. The Amazon Tall Tower is a joint effort between Brazil and Germany to determine just how much carbon dioxide actually passes through the greenery of the Amazon Rainforest – a vast carbon sink and vastly important place at the heart of climate change on Earth. According to Gizmodo, the tower will be about 1,000 feet high – which is higher than the Eiffel Tower – and it will help scientists measure how much CO2 the rainforest absorbs or releases each year.
