ABSTRACT
The article reports that the road to global warming could be significantly lengthened if the United States stopped talking about methods of reducing carbon emissions like growing plantations of trees to soak up carbon dioxide emissions and merely switched to fuel-efficient cars on a grand scale, say scientists. They found that at least one-third of the country would have to be planted with forests in order to reach the ten percent threshold. If farmers stopped tilling all the cropland in the country, and either switched to alternative farming techniques or left land fallow, carbon emissions would drop by less than four percent.
