Play the interactive carbon cycle

Carbon travels through the planet and environment in many different states. In some places it can have disastrous effects on the climate and in others it can help tackle climate change. 

This interactive follows the journey of carbon through the carbon cycle. Find out how carbon moves from the atmosphere as carbon dioxide into a wooden building or a piece of wooden furniture where it is stored for life as carbon.
