No...I am not asking for your opinion on this matter, I already know for a fact that it is real. There is already an alarming increase of greenhouse gases. These are gases that trap heat in the atmoshpere. Methane, Nitrous Oxide, Fluorinated Gases and Carbon monoxide are such gases. The first three principal greenhouse gases are CREATED AND EMITTED solely by human activity. Carbon dioxide occurs naturally and the same with the other three, it is compounded through human activity through the burning of fossil fuel like natural gas, oil and coal and also as a result of chemical reactions like the manufacturing of cement. Of course, we all know that all animals inhale oxygen and exhale Carbon dioxide. So let's focus on Carbon dioxide. It's simpler to discuss. You can do your research on the other three later. Supposedly, Carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere when it is absorbed by plants and trees. But the rainforest of our planet is fast disappearing. The need for more agricultural land, the need for timber and the all too familiar greed and the need for more wealth has wiped out thousands and thousands of acres of rainforest through the years and has affected the balance in Mother Nature. (I won't even go into landslides and mudslides anymore.) We too can tilt the balance on Mother Nature's favor. We can plant trees. It is THE ONLY WAY to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. I know that is just one principal greenhouse gas but it is the only gas with a ready solution on how to remove. I know there are probably solutions on how to remove the other gases and they're probably working on how to lessen fluorinated gases, but in our lifetime, we cannot do anything about global warming. We have accumulated to much waste. The people in the government all over the world don't really put importance on these issues. Besides, there's just too much bullsh*t in government for the people there to even realize what is and what is not an important issue. So let's focus on one gas and start from there. Plant your tree NOW.
