ABSTRACT
The article presents a study based on the dangerous greenhouse gases produced by trees. Scientists are stating that trees, which take in carbon dioxide and emit nice, clean oxygen, are also pumping out greenhouse gases. Scientists have found that plants could be emitting up to a third of all the methane in the atmosphere. Methane levels, which have recently stabilized, have tripled since the beginning of the industrial revolution. Along with carbon dioxide, it's a key contributor to global warming.
