Save a Tree…Help Save the Earth.
One thing about global warming that most people do not realize is that there have been natural processes preventing the effects all along. Plants are one of the best natural resources we have to help prevent global warming. These can include any sort of plant such as trees, flowers, algae, vines and many more. Some may ask if the plants are stopping Global Warming. The answer is no; not entirely, but they are definitely helping. Plants absorb carbon dioxide in the air. In other words, instead of the carbon dioxide adding to the already polluted atmosphere, the plants on earth absorb some of that carbon dioxide. This action (Photosynthesis) has slowed the process of Global Warming, benefitting everyone.
Photosynthesis is the process by which plants absorb Carbon Dioxide. Photosynthesis occurs when plants use the energy from sunlight and convert that sunlight into chemical energy to fuel the organism’s activities. Unlike us, plants release oxygen as their waste, and we breathe their oxygen in. Likewise, we release carbon dioxide as our waste, and the plants absorb our carbon dioxide.
As you can see, plants are vital to us humans because they absorb carbon dioxide. This results in a healthier planet, and helps by giving us oxygen to breathe. If you cannot do something large for the environment, you can start by planting more trees, grass, flowers, ivy, or any type of plant or greenery that uses the process of photosynthesis.
I wonder; however, exactly how many plants we would have to plant to make a huge environmental difference.
