What role do trees play in global warming?
Trees help to reduce global warming by 'cleaning the air'.
- A gas that helps to cause global warming is carbon dioxide.
- Trees 'breathe' just like we do except when they breathe they take in carbon dioxide not oxygen.
- When a tree breathes out it breathes out oxygen.
- This is then breathed in by a human.
- Carbon dioxide is breathed out the the human...
- ...and breathed in by the tree...
- This carries on continuously.

A tree takes in Carbon Dioxide for use in photosynthesis. Carbon Dioxide is a greenhouse gas which causes global warming. The tree stores the carbon and releases oxygen.
Trees actually act against it. They take the amosphere's carbon dioxide and turn it into oxygen, reducing the effects of the greenhouse effect. It kills the trees so we don't …get as much oxygen!
Aerosols used to contain CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) which did not break down easily and so did serious damage to the ozone layer, which usually absorbs ultraviolet (UV) radiat…ion. UV radiation is a major cause of skin melanomas and other cancers. Thanks to the international treaty The Montreal Protocol on Substances That Deplete the Ozone Layer (1987 - 1999) CFCs have now largely been replaced by other aerosols, HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons) which are serious greenhouse gases. This has nothing to do with the the possibility of global warming being caused by man and may actually have been a cooling agent for parts of our planet. Ozone is a greenhouse gas that naturally thins over each pole throughout the winter months. This creates a natural hole over each pole during this process. The theory why the Antarctic has not seen warming is due to the cooling effect from the larger hole.
This depends on your point of view. If the Oregon Report is correct (which I believe it is) there is no such thing as global warming, On the other hand, most climate scie…ntists say that recent global warming and climate change are caused substantially by human activities, such as burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas), manufacturing cement and deforestation.
Global warming is usually caused by the large amount of Carbon Dioxide ( CO2 ) released in the atmosphere. Trees absorbs CO2 in order to perform Photosynthesis.
Yes. An increase in population has affected global warming because the more people there are, the more demand there is for farm products, as well as for transport and electric…ity, which usually means burning more fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas). More people also need more food, which can lead to deforestation. Our sheep and cattle produce methane, a particularly potent greenhouse gas.
It converts carbon dioxide into oxygen. Carbon dioxide traps heat so when the trees convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, it not only reduce the amount of heat by a bit but also… give us oxygen to breathe in.
trees reduce global warming, but they can't prevent a process that is already taking place.. trees obsorb CO2 and turn this into oxygen, reducing the Green house gas concentr…ation in the atmosphere, reducing the greenhouse effect or global warming.
Factories need power, and this is usually electricity, generated by burning fossil fuels . Any burning of fossil fuels emits carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that remains in …the atmosphere, as there is too much of it for the normal carbon cycle to remove. So it builds up slowly, capturing more heat, and causing global warming. A: \nFactories does not cause global warming but the gases they emit do, such as carbon monoxide and these carbon is the second greehouse gas that contribute to global warming. A: \nIf a factory is not using renewable energy (solar, wind, etc), then it runs on fossil fuel. Fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) release carbon dioxide which is EXTRA (from millions of years underground) and is building up in the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. This build up is causing global warming and climate change.
Technology involves factories and manufactured products. Pollution increases as technology rises. Global Warming is caused by different harmful chemicals. Factories produce sm…oke and synthesized chemical fused in different processes. Therefore, technology CAUSES global warming in a such a way of waste production.
Oxygen does not play any role in Global Warming. Greenhouse gases like Carbon Dioxide, Methane and Aerosols had played a vital role in increasing the temperature of the Earth.…
kids must be taught regarding global warming, so that they are not only gain awareness but also work for its counter implementations.
Trees remove carbon dioxide from the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Deforestation means that there are no longer enough trees to remove the excess carbon from our burning… of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas).
Trees tend to grow faster during warmer and wetter years, and this is reflected in the tree rings. Scientists can look back through the centuries using tree rings, and identif…y which years were warmer. If there is a warming or cooling phase, the rate of change and its duration can be identified readily from adjacent tree rings. With the help of this process, they have been able to show that the current global warming phase represents the fastest increase in average temperatures for several thousand years.
Living trees contribute to reducing global warming by removing carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) from the atmosphere. The amount they remove and store is substantial. However trees hav…e respiration and do expel some CO2. They also will eventually die and rot. All decaying organic matter also gives off CO2 or worse, methane. Trees have the added advantage though, of being able to store carbon during their lifetime, and even after that, if the wood is preserved.
Cities and the people in them play a large role in global warming.Heating, cooling and transport in the cities use massive amounts offossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas). …When fossil fuel is burntit releases carbon dioxide, one of the greenhouse gases that arecausing global warming.
Any software engineer that works on improving the efficiency of anything that affects the environment is playing such a role. For example, software in cars and planes that …increases the efficiency of the engine so that less fuel is necessary to travel longer distances. Software that helps mining companies search more effectively for minerals and oil can reduce the damage done to the environment. But as much as software might play a role in reducing global warming there will be a greater effect from renewal energy sources and battery technology. So software that helps these technologies to be more efficient or aid in their adoption would also be important.
