Scholarcy highlights

  • In recent years fossil fuels, smog, carbon monoxide, particulates, free radicals and toxic chlorofluorocarbons and deforestations have increased significantly mainly due to anthropogenic activities
  • Urbanization is a global trend and is associated with increases in income, and higher urban incomes are correlated with higher consumption of energy and GHG emissions
  • Increases in the atmospheric concentrations of these gases cause Earth to warm by trapping more of this heat
  • The CO2 level in 2012 was about 40% higher than it was in the nineteenth century
  • Biofuels, according to the IEA, could displace enough petroleum to avoid the equivalent of 2.1 Gigatons of carbon dioxide emission each year if produced sustainably – about as much as net carbon dioxide absorbed by the oceans
  • This review is supported by various publications from the United Nations, and citations are acknowledged
