ARTIFICIAL TREE DESIGNED TO DO THE WORK OF PLANTS

global-warming-arctic-ice-sheets In the past few years, the world has experienced devastating natural disasters on a level that hasn’t been seen for decade with a rising trend of  greenhouse gases that continuously  trap the heat from the sun and cause the temperature of our planet to rise. This warming of the globe has  potentially altered sea level, crop yield and rain fall, and also the intensity and frequency of natural disasters such as tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, and droughts. The scientific community as a whole has determined through all research that global warming is a problem caused by human influence and humans most in all ways try to combat this with a positive influence

Websites and blogs  strive to provide the public with information on global warming in an attempt to raise awareness and preserve the world’s beauty. It was reported lately that a scientist Dr Klaus Lackner has invented an artificial tree designed to do the job of plants. It would draw carbon dioxide out of the air, as plants do during photosynthesis, but retain the carbon and not release oxygen. We begin to ask our selfs this harder questions. had it been that everyone cared enough for this planet as much as Dr Klaus Lackner ? It is predicted one synthetic tree could remove 90,000 tonnes of CO2 in a year – the emissions equivalent of 15,000 cars but then this invention is still on paper work and what should we be doing in the main time as Dr Klaus looks forward to make this theory a reality.

Nevertheless while waiting on the practical implementation of Dr. Klaus Lackner’s  There are many possible wedges that could each reduce green house gases  emissions including improvements to energy efficiency and vehicle fuel economy (so less energy has to be produced), and increases in wind and solar power, hydrogen produced from renewable sources, biofuels (produced from crops), natural gas, and nuclear power.  There is also the potential to capture the carbon dioxide emitted from fossil fuels and store it underground—a process called “carbon sequestration.”

The evidence that humans are causing global warming is strong, but the question of what to do about it remains controversial. We are all an important factor in planning for the future.
