New Study Says Planting More Trees Won’t Save Earth Anymore

With the global population inevitably growing year by year, along with production of carbon dioxide (CO2), scientists realized that the increase in gases in the atmosphere such as CO2 cause a “greenhouse effect,” which affects the planet’s temperature, and causes a negative impact. As Business Insider points out, humans emit 30 to 40 billion tons […]
