350ppm pyramid illustration

It takes a lot of wood to store enough carbon from carbon dioxide (CO2) to get the atmospheric CO2 down to 350ppm (methodology described in the CO2 Pyramids post).

In these illustrations, the smaller pyramid is the same size as the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. The larger one illustrates the amount of wood needed.

Which of the illustrations do you think helps show the extent of the problem best?
