Last month our Environmental Progress News focused on the impacts of climate change. This month we are looking at what is triggering global warming, and causing drastic changes to our climate.
There is no question about the damage excess carbon in the atmosphere (known as CO2) is causing. We have identified the problem, now we need to enact a solution. Would it surprise you to learn the cause of the problem may also be the solution as well?
What is carbon? Carbon is the most important element to life. Without this element, life as we know it would not exist. Every living organism contains carbon. This short video sums up the carbon cycle, and how it can be a solution to our climate crisis.
Basically, there are three main areas that contribute to our carbon imbalance.
- Overuse of fossil fuel
- Poor Agricultural Practices
“We cannot hope to either understand or to manage the carbon in the atmosphere unless we understand and manage the trees and the soil too.” ~ Freeman Dyson
