Abstract: We have begun to make significant progress in documenting the climate forcing effects of land cover, through increasingly accurate mapping of the global distribution of land cover types and ongoing changes. At the turn of the Millennium a quarter of the land surface was un-vegetated (barren, permanent snow and ice or urban), 30% was grass and shrubland, 29 % was forest and the remaining 16% was devoted to Agriculture
