are emissions of CO2 and deforestation. CO2 is majorly responsible for the warming effect on the earth's surface, thereby contributing to the "greenhouse" effect. CO2 concentrations are increasing mainly
due to
the burning of coal, natural gas, and oil for transportation and energy. Australians,
for example
, are the biggest contributors to
pollution compared to the rest of the world. Electricity generation in Australia is the main cause of carbon pollution as it mainly comes from burning gas and coal.
, another cause of
pollution is deforestation and tree-cleaning. Forrest and bushlands work as sinks for carbon, but when these are cleared for farming, urban, and infrastructure development that stored carbon gets released back into the atmosphere contributing to global warming.
, there are potential ways to solve these problems, or at least reduce the effects.
