From the first science classes I took in public school to graduation, I learned about greenhouse-gasses and the basics of global warming- how humanity has such a deep impact on our planet’s health. With a background of compassion for our environment and the lives of future generations, researching

Reading and learning about the environment raised a cornucopia of questions that I felt a strong need to find answers for. How big of a role does humanity play in global warming? I made a list of questions in order to find the main points to focus on while researching, for there are so many things to consider when researching such a vast, worldwide topic.
