Do waterfalls absorb carbon at all?

    In nature, carbon is absorbed mainly by forests and other vegetation, and by the oceans.  The world’s oceans and forests make up the two greatest “carbon sinks” capable of slowing the effects of global warming – but the oceans seem to be getting close to absorbing all the carbon they can, while human activities are rapidly destroying forests worldwide.  Waterfalls do not absorb carbon – although the water may support the growth of plants that do.  The simple action of water falling through the air cannot do anything to absorb carbon from the atmosphere.
