    Impact of carbon emissions on earth

    The release of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone, and water vapor causes global warming.

    Carbon emission is also a greenhouse gas emission process that occurs when excessive carbon dioxide enters the air. The quantity of carbon emission is increasing day by day and month by month.

    Now with this, we are encountering certain significant climate changes like extreme weather followed by tropical storms, wildfires, relentless droughts, and scorching heatwaves. Other than this the crop production is affected and so are the animals’ natural environments.

    Carbon emissions are one of the prime causes that are hampering mother nature and earth. The planet is suffering due to excessive carbon emission, as they are the most emitted greenhouse gas.

    Carbon dioxide is released from burning natural gas, oil, etc. Not only that the burning of biological substances, like, solid waste, trees, etc also discharges carbon dioxide. Thus, whenever that carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere in massive quantities over a long period, the mother earth gets affected.

    From this, it is quite clear that rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will cause devastating effects.

    Global warming is increasing each day du this which is ultimately the earth’s climate. Now further this global warming causes hot storms, wildfires, harsh droughts, devastating heatwaves, and many more.

    It directly affects mankind too. There is respiratory disease due to smog, which indirectly is formed from this CO2 mission.

    Remedies to decrease carbon dioxide

    Here are six options for removing carbon from the atmosphere:

    1. Planting more and more trees will increase the rate of photosynthesis and hence increase the amount of carbon dioxide in nature.

    Thus, increasing the forest, in general, has become essential to check the balance.

    2. Combining trees on plantations can also eliminate carbon. Also increasing soil carbon can help farmers to remove carbon from the atmosphere.

    3. Bio-energy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)

    Another method is Bio-energy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS). Here, biomass is used as an energy source in industries, power, or transportation plants.
