How Individuals Create Carbon

Transportation is the second most common source of carbon dioxide emissions in the United States. While many people now have electric cars, or vehicles with astonishing gas milage, the fact is that each car, truck, and minivan all still put out carbon dioxide. Some states have required emissions testing on vehicles to assess and mitigate the levels in their towns. Many people carpool. The good thing is, plants and trees use carbon dioxide as fuel and energy to grow and in turn, expel oxygen. Which, humans are fond of breathing. (helps keep us alive) Planting trees can only help your family and town. It certainly couldn’t hurt.

We use electricity every day. Our heating and air conditioning, our lights, our appliances, our hair dryers and electric shavers. It’s not unreasonable to want to live comfortably and feel good about ourselves. Just as it is safe to say we, as Americans, also like our cities and towns to also be a comfortable place to raise our families and enjoy ourselves. By planting trees, we are enhancing our city, aesthetically as well as for our health. Just because we plant trees in Colorado does not mean it doesn’t effect the air quality around the country. Wind happens. Fresh air travels. Pat yourselves on the back for planting a tree that craves carbon dioxide and helps your Nana breathe elsewhere.

When trees are cut down, the absorption of carbon stops. The carbon that once was stored in the tree is released into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide, which, is toxic to humans. Thirty million acres are lost each year to city development. Meadow and Pine is a small scale afforestation project, however, every little bit helps. One tree at a time, we can change the future for our children and grandchildren.

Carbon dioxide isn’t picky about how it’s released into the Earth’s atmosphere. Cars, planes, trains-all burn fossil fuels and create CO2. There’s something to be said about the fresh air when you’re on vacation. Whether it be at a beach, or in the mountains. Why not bring that same feeling back home with you? Why not plant trees and improve the air quality where you live and work? Maybe you don’t fully believe in climate change. That’s okay! But what harm could planting trees do?
