Hi to all, this is my first post so go easy on me.
We were having a debate at work today as to whether the weight of the earth changes under certain circumstances.
The question is, that if you grew a forest and cut it down, then piled up all of the wood somewhere, then regrew the forest and cut down all of the wood again. If you repeat this process several times would it add to the mass of the earth or as the other side of the argument goes, the mass of the new wood would be couteracted by the loss of nutrients taken from the growing process.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this, or point me towards a post if a similar question has been asked elswhere
