Global warming and its consequences are rather alarming.

Saving trees will also help save wildlife. The destruction of trees is the primary cause that global warming is taking place today. So if you can just plant as many trees as you can and ENSURE that they survive; you are doing your two bit worth.

The amount of heat generated is just added to the already hot atmosphere on the outside of the building,...
