Why I think this is all just a big money making scam...

Global Warming save the Trees

Global Warming save the Trees

I do not believe that air pollution is a major problem as long as people also maintain a decent balance of trees.

Giant factories putting out black smoke and trucks and cars putting out toxic fumes would be problems if we were stuck with the air we had,but we are not. We have plants and trees that process the carbon dioxide that we are spewing out.

I think that as long as we start replanting more trees,we do not need to worry about dealing with the stupid regulation of emissions. If it works you should be able to use it for factory work, if it moves, you should be able to drive it no matter what is coming out the exhaust pipe.

Barry's Response - Yes, that's possible, but there's a lot of debate about whether re-vegetating our planet will do the trick. I hope so, but I don't know.

The underlying belief here is that the vegetation naturally and willingly cleans up after us, whether we leave a mess behind or not.

Here's one example: In the spring of 2010, the EPA held a meeting called "The Role of Vegetation in Mitigating Search this site for Air Quality Impacts from Traffic Emissions." The goal was to get experts together and see if any solutions could be found to a growing problem. Here's a list of each expert's contributions - https://cfpub.epa.gov/si/si_public_record_report.cfm?dirEntryId=230633 - Have a look.

It's interesting to hear your point of view on this.

No doubt trees are nature's filters - they've been doing their thing since before we even started worrying about emissions. Yes, green giants help offset our carbon footprint.

It's not that I dismiss the power of trees, but I think it's more complicated than just letting the leaves do all the work. Replanting trees is a good start, but it takes a lot more to combat the kind of pollution we're talking about.

Seeing factories spewing black clouds and trucks spewing toxic fumes isn't what anyone wants to see. You don't just need a forest in your backyard. It's about balancing progress and preservation. It's not the wild west anymore, partner, and there's a reason we've got regulations.

You're right about letting things run as long as they work or move. Sometimes a little regulation isn't just about choking our freedom. Keep our air breathable and our land worth living on. We're all in this together, and finding solutions means looking beyond just one piece.

Let's not put all our eggs in one basket. If we want to keep the world clean and green, we have to take into account a lot of factors. Find that sweet spot where progress and responsibility meet. Regardless of whether you're behind the wheel or in the boardroom, we're the stewards of this land.
